Kirilenko a pro now?

I just saw that Russian U.S. Open Junior champion Maria Kirilenko won her first pro title at a satellite event in Florida?

Did she win the title as an amatuer or is she playing pro tennis now?

Either way congrats on her first pro title.

i don't know wether she is a pro or not but i hope the title gives her the confidence to start playing more wta events. although she is quite young maybe she is limited but i still hope if she is limited that she is playing as many wta events as she is allowed.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Yes Maria is a pro, she turned Pro after last years US Open jrs, but its not gonna change anything other than she's allowed to keep her earnings.

Even though she's a pro or not you can STILL play juniors although in Maria's case its gonna be just occasionally and most likely Roland Garros.

Good luck to my favs

Well Maria proved to be a tremendous talent in that tournament trouncing tour veteran Sonya Jeylasean in the final 6-3, 6-0.

2003 will probably be a good learning experience for her.
