Internazionali BNL d'Italia

The Main Draw is out today, and Maria will play Ai Sugiyama in the 1st round; Sugiyama has already beaten MaKiri this year indoors at Tokyo

She basically has no luck i hope she can turn that around soon. This will be hard for her but i dont think its impossible. Good luck.

Wow. >.<

I'd like to say there is a chance she could beat Ai but I'm probably setting myself up for disappointment. Good luck though Makiri.

Re: Internazionali BNL d'Italia

I think her 1st round match against Ai is one of those tossup matches. Still i really hope that Makiri can finally get a win. She`s due for one sooner or later.

Re: Internazionali BNL d'Italia

It's a terrible draw, isn't it?
I like Ai;, and she's got some decent results under her belt this year, but she got PWNED by Tatiana and Nathalie on clay in the Fed Cup, so let's just hope that Maria can just get these horrible clay results out of her system.
Perhaps I'm just a delusional optimist, but I truely believe that our MaKiri just needs ONE decent win to get over her confidence deflating recent results...
We all know that she's got so much more than she's offering in recent weeks...

DAVAI MAKIRI!

Re: Internazionali BNL d'Italia

yup, she is up for a win sooner or later as Rod said, she is definitely capable of winning this match up, but she just needs to believe she can pull off the upset.

Good Luck Makiri

Oh I agree. Jankovic needed one win before she was able to get back on track. Makiri can do it too.

But her w/l record is getting to be pretty bad.

7 wins and 12 losses for the year. She's too young to be struggling this much but when will get back on track? Hope this doesn't take years or more months.

Re: Internazionali BNL d'Italia

Not the best draw, but it could have been worse. Sugiyama is beatable. In theory. After that it's going to be an uphill battle. Even one single win would hopefully give Maria some much-needed confidence and get her back on the right track.
Good luck Masha!

Re: Internazionali BNL d'Italia

belief is something she is in desperate need of right now, so as much as it'd be nice for her to pull off an upset, i'm really not getting my hopes up

she really needs a long-term strategy..not just a match-by-match objective.
