She has beaten Kim on grass, it will be harder to beat her on this surface.
They've never met.
Makarova has barely beaten two top 20 who where not in great form and now people are considering her like a future top 10. If Kim plays at her level (not like today), Makarova will crash in 2.

Re: Anyone else think Makarova can be very tricky for Kim?I
I think the next few opponents for Kim will be very tricky.
With certain seeds, you know what to expect. With players you've never played against, it's always a bit tougher.
I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
