Worst draw she could of asked for. Hingis in the first round, and if she somehow gets past that then Venus in the 2nd round.

Good luck Maria!

Seems like she pulled the shortest straw that must be very frustrating getting a draw like that when your in a good ranking position like Maria, but i believe she can do it.

Yikes, the draw was not kind to Maria! First Martina, then possibly Venus. Best of luck and play well!!

I actually like her chances against Venus better against Hingis. Venus hasn't played in ages and probably would be a bit rusty. Hingis just isn't a good matchup for Masha.

Terrible draw in doubles too. Maria/Ana plays Liezel/Navratilova in the first round.

Maria lost 57 67 ... well the score could have been other way round, but Maria didn`t take her chances. She was a break up in both sets

Positives:

+ with one or two exceptions her drop shots were very good, and that`s a positive sign as Maria likes that shot and uses it very often and secondly its a very useful shot on clay

+ there was no obvious/visible weakness in her game today



= Maria`s serve was ok. (she served two aces in a row in the first set) but it`s still not a weapon, and she still can`t rely on it too much


Negatives:

- well it`s just the fact that she lost. Masha played good match IMO, but couldn`t close out either the first or the second set, and after bad beginning of the tie-break she looked like she accepted the lose. At 1-5 in the TB she forgot that it was her turn to serve and it was a sad end of actually a quite good match.

Masha called the trainer after the first set but I don`t know what was the problem, as I couldn`t see it from my place. The match was suspended because of the rain at 2-1 in the second set and the conditions were dreadful throughout the match (cold and drizzle)

But as I said it was a good match in my opinion, and I can`t think of more then 8-10 players in the draw that would beat Masha today.

Sorry, I will go for a couple of beers now and will post some pics in two hours or so
