indeed she is...mamamia...I didn't know she went to Bali,. for Wismilak Open. She seems good friend with Maria Kiri eh???
Xanctus - Marta is Makiri's second most frequent doubles partner after Dulko. She is from Poland, will be 20 years old on 16 Jan. And yes, Marta has said that Makiri is one of her best friends. You can find out more about her at http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/p...layerID=310338
American tv did a nice interview with Makiri at the USO 2005. Makiri says she met Big Masha when they were 13 years old at Bahden Bahden (pardon the spelling, Henry maybe you can correct me) which is in Germany, at an ITF tournament. Big Masha was standing off by herself and Makiri went up and made friends. Makiri said something like and we got to know each other more and more and "are best friends right to this day" (big smile by Makiri). Big Masha when asked who her friends on the tour will always say Maria Kirilenko first and foremost. In fact, I can't recall Big Masha ever mentioning a second name. Makiri has been quoted as calling Big Masha, Marta D, Anna C and Giesela Dulko as her friends on the tour.
