Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

Lopes ended up winning the title last week, so it was really a bad draw for Maria. And in doubles, the team she lost to also went on to win the title
So unlucky

This week's 10K Spain:
R1: (wc)Aina Schaffner-Riera (ESP) (NR) d. (5)Maria Sakkari (GRE) 75 75
That is really bad

Week off and then she's playing a 10K in Italy. Hopefully she can get back in form again soon

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

Apparently Maria's mother was supposed to be a guest on a Greek TV show talking about her daughter on Wednesday, but I didn't see it and don't know what she said

Anyways Maria lost today 6-7(4) 6-4 3-6
Sure Lizarazo is a former top 400 player, but still
Also lost in doubles 6-7(5) 3-6 which is really worrying since they played wildcards and Maria's partner is former top 200 singles and current top 200 doubles

Oh well, next week she's playing a 10K here again, and then another one the following week...

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

10K Italy R1 vs. Claudia Giovine ITA (#527, former #257)
Giovine is in good form, so it will be tough, but hopefully that takes the pressure off Maria since she won't be expected to win

Her ranking fell to 573 this week, but the good news is that she is only defending 8 points between now and September so a great chance to have a breakthrough soon

Seeded 2nd in doubles, playing once again with Ferrer-Suarez (ESP)
R1 vs. Andrei ROU/Rubini ITA

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

She beat Giovine 4-6 7-6(3) 7-5
Then lost 4-6 5-7 to (8) Martina Caregaro ITA (#458)
Main difference was that Maria converted 3 of 11 break points and her opponent converted 5 of 6
She reached the doubles semis and lost to Papamichail. There's a video of the full match here:

Cute hug at net between Maria and Despina

Another 10K Italy:
R1 l. to Estelle Cascino FRA (#602) 6-7(1) 0-6
I wonder if she had SP in the first set, probably
Cascino ended up making the final
Maria didn't play doubles here

With Papamichail:

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari

6-4 4-6 1-6 against Grammatikopoulou in 10K Heraklion R1
Grammatikopoulou now 3-0 against Maria, clearly she is a bad matchup for Maria and also she's younger and ranked higher

But Maria's break point conversion was atrocious once again, 7 for 21 is just unacceptable

Maria reached the doubles QF with Kairi and lost 10-8 in STB

This week's 10K Heraklion:
R1 vs. Natalia Siedliska POL (#677)
Seeded third in doubles with Papamichail. I believe the last time they played together they lost 7-6(8) in the third in a Fed Cup deciding match in the relegation play-offs . Hopefully this time there's a better outcome for them

Last week:

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Following the Family Tradition: Maria Sakkari
