Is Kiri playing Moscow? If so she should only be playing singles. Time for Kiri to focus on singles in 2013 so she can make a real run at the top 10. Kiri and Nadia are a good doubles team but they struggle in finals and big matches. I would just as soon have Maria rest up and then start training for 2013 rather than work so hard to make the doubles YEC. But I know most posters here want Kiri in Istanbul so I hope you get your way. But part of me would rather have to resting up for 2013. I think Kiri played so much tennis during the summer that she's worn out in the fall.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
