Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

I suppose there are those who will consider drawing Larsson in Rnd 1 a good thing.

What minion of Satan arranged this draw? The adorableness of Wimby factor will be reduced considerably at the end of this match.

But Ekat SHOULD be able to jump all over Jo-La's backhand.

Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

^ Haha, LOB first-rounder!

Her section:
Petra Kvitova [8] - Coco Vandeweghe
Kiki Bertens - Yaroslava Shvedova
Garbine Muguruza - Anne Keothavong [WC]
Ekaterina Makarova [25] - Johanna Larsson

Carla Suarez Navarro [19] - Lourdes Dominguez Lino
Sofia Arvidsson - Mirjana Lucic
Eugenie Bouchard - Galina Voskoboeva [Q]
Ana Ivanovic [12] - Virginie Razzano [Q]

Katya's been a victim of the draw gods a Wimbledon, however she has the opportunity to turn that around here.

For her first match, she's 1-0 against JoLa, and that was on clay, so I see her winning this in straights.

Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

Yeah, a hard-hitting lefty is pretty much the ultimate Jo-La nightmare (not named Sara or Serena).

Katya could have a really nice tournament in both singles and doubles, I'd say.

Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

Well, I'm still in mourning for Jo-La mode.

I'll be in "Go Ekat!" mode in time for her next match.

Hated to see these two play. But there's no shame in losing to Katya, THE TWO-TIME GRAND SLAM CHAMPION.*


*I can't help it. I just like saying that. A lot. Gee, I feel better already.

Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

And indeed JoLa turned out to be no match. Garbine, however, will be. Katya fell to Garbine at IW this year in three, and Garbine is going to be equally tough on grass.

Still, good luck to Katya!
