Marie during the hardcourt season

Well, I guess we can post all the stuff about Marie's hardcourt season in here!

Stanford draw is out and things are looking good.... Marie faces a qualifier in the first round. Then, she'd play Anna Kournikova or Anna Smashnova. Then she would possibly have Venus in the quarterfinals. I really think Marie can reach the quarters at least here! Anna K is in poor form, and I think Marie could overpower Anna S, but she'd have to be patient and not make too many errors. Good luck to Marie!

Good idea to make a thread for the new season

2nd round is definitely possible, and then she's either gonna face a good player or one of my other favs...but yeah she definitely has a chance of reaching the quarters! I'll hope so!

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

Vanity, that is a good looking draw for Marie! But unless Anna K. has found her form, I think Marie would have more trouble with Smashnova than Kournikova. Don't you?

adnil, huh? Did I get you and (V)anity mixed up?

A match against Venus would be great experience for MGM!

The qualifier MGM drew in the first round is Wynne Prakusya. Marie has played her once and beat her... a 6-3 5-7 7-5 win over her at 2001 Tashkent. Of course, Marie wasn't the player she is now back then. I've seen Prakusya play before. She's very short, and is mainly a counterpuncher but she's a good doubles player so she has good volleys. She doesn't really have any major weapons though. MGM just needs to overpower her and not give her any free points. She's just gotta be consistent, because if she isn't, Prakusya will put on the pressure during the rallies and draw the errors from Marie. We'll see how she fares tomorrow!

wynne won the doubles competition here last year (with janet lee), so I guess she shouldn't be underestimated. but I'm just glad MGM didn't draw anne kremer

Ooooh yes, I was afraid she would draw Anne Kremer too
Anne crushed everyone in qualifying. I was also afraid she would draw a resurgent Lucic, who seems to be fired up and regaining her form in this tournament.


The good news is that I'll have a match report right from Stanford!!! My friend (who posts on the board as Cynicole) will be watching the match this morning!

She was beaten 6-1 3-6 6-3 by Wynne Prakusya. I'll be getting a report later so I can let you know what's going on!
