Well she just lost 6-1 2-6 6-7 (3)

That Sucks, she had plenty of chances including serving for the match at 5-4 in the 3rd... The 1st set was great with 1 ace, no DFs, and 83% 1st serves in... In the 2nd the DFs kicked in with 3 just in that set and the rest is history!

Whats going on with Makiri? After such a promising start to the year, she has been playing like crap for quite awhile now!

Bad loss Makiri You need to just shut it down, go home, have some of your mom's home cooking, listen to classical music on your iPod, see your boyfriend, rest your weary body, re-evaluate your tennis, and prepare for 2007 season. I'm sorry to say this Makiri, but I think you're mentally NOT there anymore (tennis burnout). You're just going through the paces when your on the court. Shut it down, so you can rejuvenate yourself both mentally and physically, get those competitive juices flowing again, and be ready for next season!!!

Maria, PLEASE STOP!! I can't take this anymore. It is absolutely disheartening. I've said it before and I'll say it again, what is she going to gain by continuing to play? Please take the rest of the year off and clear the mind.

Maria's career seems to be heading in the wrong direction with one bad loss after another. And she keeps on playing one tournament after another. I hope she takes a couple weeks off after the season to rest. Then I want Nigel Sears to take Masha to South Africa and run her hard in the oppressive heat to make Makiri the best conditioned player on the WTA Tour which would help Maria with her mental toughness as well.

Maria is a darling girl! Maybe the sweetest on the WTA Tour. But it's painful knowing she has one bad loss after another with no end in sight.

I hope she takes a couple days off to rest up for the Ladies Kremlin Cup in Moscow. But I'm not expecting anything from Makiri there.

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
