Lightbulb Pattaya Rd 2: (2) Maria Kirilenko def. WC Luksika Kumkhum 5-7, 6-2, 6-2!!

I think in the end the experience mattered. Maria seemed extremely patient enough despite being broken many time and hung on.

Hope to have a great 2013 for Luk though!

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

In pattaya to watch this match. Kumkhum could be great in the future! Her strokes can match with Maria K. The big difference in this match was the serve. Maria served much better than the Thai girl who double faulted like 10-20 times. Kumkhum needs to work on her serve a lot if she wanna play in a top level. Can see some speed on her serve but so inconsistent.

Thai Players, Masha, Lindsay, Ai

Luksika hits everything so flat and with power, I'm sure she'll be an exciting player to watch in the future.

Glad MaKiri got through this, was a bit worried tbh!

Yeah Maria, I am so glad that she is through

I must admit, I was a bit worried after the first set, but I knew, once she would be luckier on big points, she should win this

Kumkhum could do very well in the future!

Good luck for the QF, Maria!

taking a first set of a very consistent top 20 player is a good sign. Hope for Luck' run in 2013 will be both successful and injury-free.
