Re: Roland Garros

She doesn't have a good draw! And it's clay...Hope she wins against Camerin, then she'll probably meet Stosur - tough one! Anyway...please win some matches!

Re: Roland Garros

Actually, aside from MEC and possibly Sam, it's a decent draw. Nicole is injured. Jamea is just coming back and Vania isn't too well on clay. I'm more worried about MEC, strangely. She has decent results on clay.

Re: Roland Garros

To be honest, I'm kinda worried with Makiri's 1st round match. Hopefully she'll avoid the ERES (Early Round Exit Syndrome)and pulls that match out eventhough she's been struggling lately with her form. Good luck Makiri at Roland Garros! Have a good showing at the 2nd slam of the year!

Re: Roland Garros

Hopefully she's been working her butt off to get out of this slump and she gets that first win i'll be happy with that go Makiri do it for yourself! I don't think it's that bad a draw could have been worse.

Re: Roland Garros

Makiri with the performance she has had this year so far without a coach absolutely

will have no chance.Im worried that if she cant pass her first round match.I m very

sorry for her.As I have been telling from the beginning she should get a coach and do

something immediately to change this bad row.
something immediately

Re: Roland Garros

Another tough draw for Makiri. Still i really hope that she can somehow get a win. It`s been way too long since she had one.

Re: Roland Garros

Maria's first three rounds are as follows:

Samantha Stosur AUS (27) vs. Jamea Jackson USA
Maria Kirilenko RUS vs. Maria Elena Camerin ITA

Qualifier vs. Vania King USA
Emmanuelle Gagliardi SUI vs. Nicole Vaidisova CZE (6)


We honestly could not expect a better draw for Makiri for the first two rounds. She could have just as likely faced Henin in the first round (like poor Elena Vesnina will), but instead she draws a player ranked below her. In addition, Stosur, Jackson, and Camerin have each won exactly one match in their careers at Roland Garros.

But as we all know, nothing should be taken for granted, starting with her first round matchup.

25-year-old Maria Elena Camerin is currently ranked #72 but that will move up about 10 places with her quarterfinal showing in Strasbourg, where she beat #44 Nicole Pratt and #79 Aiko Nakamura before losing to #4 Jelena Jankovic 3 and 4. Judging soly on this result, I would say she is playing decently coming into this tournament.

During the clay court season, Camerin had a 3rd round showing at Berlin (beating Chinese players Jie Zheng and Na Li in nearly identical 3-set scores before losing to Henin), sandwiched by 1st round losses in Budapest and Rome both to seeded players.

Here's a summary:

VS, III, HUNGARY, April 29, 2007, $ 175,000 , CLAY (O)
Draw: 32M/32Q/16D, Rank: 73, Seed/Entry:

VS, I, GERMANY, May 13, 2007, $ 1,340,000 , CLAY (O)
Draw: 64M/32Q/32D, Rank: 75, Seed/Entry:

Rnd Opponent Rank W/L Score
R64 H2H ZHENG, JIE CHN 41 W 3-6 6-3 6-4
R32 H2H (14) LI, NA CHN 18 W 4-6 6-3 6-3
R16 H2H (1) HENIN, JUSTINE BEL 1 L 6-1 6-3

VS, I, ITALY, May 20, 2007, $ 1,340,000 , CLAY (O)
Draw: 64M/32Q/32D, Rank: 66, Seed/Entry: W

Rnd Opponent Rank W/L Score
R64 H2H (10) DEMENTIEVA, ELENA RUS 13 L 6-1 6-2


Camerin has been competing in Roland Garros since 2001 winning exactly one main draw match. Here are her results since 2004:

GS, FRANCE, June 3, 2004, $ 5,982,126 , CLAY (O)
Draw: 128M/128Q/64D, Rank: 74, Seed/Entry:

Rnd Opponent Rank W/L Score
R128 H2H FRAZIER, AMY USA 35 W 6-3 6-2

GS, FRANCE, June 4, 2005, $ 5,301,154 , CLAY (O)
Draw: 128M/128Q/64D, Rank: 63, Seed/Entry:

Rnd Opponent Rank W/L Score
R128 H2H (31) SPREM, KAROLINA CRO 28 L 6-4 6-2

GS, FRANCE, June 10, 2006, $ 6,747,626 , CLAY (O)
Draw: 128M/128Q/64D, Rank: 55, Seed/Entry:

Rnd Opponent Rank W/L Score


Camerin v Kirilenko has happened twice with Makiri the victor each time. But Makiri was playing much better then than she is now. In 2004, she was introduced to the world with her near upset of Serena Williams at Roland Garros. In 2005, she was on a winning streak which included the Beijing title. Still, she has got to have Makiri some confidence going against Camerin. Remember, take nothing for granted.

Kirilenko leads 2-0
2005 GUANGZHOU HARD (O) R32 M. KIRILENKO 6-4 7-6(1)


I hope I can do a match preview of Makiri vs. Stosur/Jackson and also Makiri vs. Vaidisova! Good luck, Makiri!

Re: Roland Garros

Thanks for the info, RonnieB33.
Camerin is a decent 1st-round opponent, certainly beatable if Maria plays well and believes in herself, but at this point we definitely can't take anything for granted.
