Re: Marina will become the first kiwi lady since 90 to play in Miami - GL MARINA!!!

The yanks always throw around wc's to international players. Marina would have to be considered one of the most inform of the lower ranked players (having already reached 2 MD SF's). No surpise I reckon!

Although the yanks don't decide who gets the wc's in Miami. IMG (aka Evert's academy) does.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Ah that explains it. I couldn't understand why there were so many wc sponges from Georgia getting wc's in the US all the time.

Off topic a bit. Marina was recently described to me by one of the players as being a great girl with "professionalism next to none", among all the other positives that were said.
Go Marina!!

Anna Tatishvili yup, she was odds on for getting a Maindraw one again...thankfully she didn't (she's 17, cute, had 15 wildcards and yet only 283 in the world!)

Marinas pretty well known for her professionalism and maturity both on and off court. She's very comfortably travelling around the world playing tournaments, a number of times shes competed without a coach present.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

ok so marina has got one hell of an easy draw... at least to get to the third round.

she should beat muller IMO and then should beat krajicek considering she is not match fit due to injuries.. and she lost in straight to voskoboeva last week.

good luck marina... use it

Last time a kiwi lady made R3 was probably 1991

I thought she would have won alot more easily, however a win's a win

Next up will be Misa, which is a definately a winable match for Marina

But you have to consider that Martina is really struggling at the moment and i think her form is not top 100!

Yes but you certainly can't blame Marina for having reasonably good draws recently. She was handed an absolutely horrible draw in Auckland, and a pretty good draw in Memphis and she made the semi's of both of these Wta tournaments.

Marina got a nice mention on both major news tv stations at the 6pm news, was so cool

I think you missunderstood me a bit i do not böame Marina for her draws because it is great how she uses her chances and enters the top 100. I only wanted to state that a win over Müller is not that great!

Well to be fair I think what Oztennis was saying was correct though. Martina Muller is well in the top 100 (30 odd places in), so deserves to be called a top 100 player. Although yes Muller is alot better on clay than hardcourt
