Makiri has a very brutal section with Jelena and Lucie in it. Still i have some confidence in her. If she can somehow get it together, then i can see her at least getting to the third round.

Re: Acura Classic

Have some faith! She can beat Safarova. And remember she had a really good chance to beat Jankovic on grass, a surface we know Maria doesn't like.

I see no reason why she can't get to the 3rd round, then who knows? Not wanting to get ahead of myself but the potential quarter-final would look an easier match than the 3rd round.

BTW: Is this Tier 1?

Re: Acura Classic

Nobody expects you to do anything here Makiri. Let's show your opponents what "Makiri Style" of tennis is all about. Let's prove to all the nay-sayers that they're all wrong about you! UNLEASH HELL on your opponents Makiri!!!

Re: Acura Classic

Nice to see Makiri back playing doubles again this time with Gisela. Unfortunately they got the Bondarenko Sisters in the first round. Still i hope they give a good effort in their match.

Re: Acura Classic

Why is everyone so convinced this is a bad draw? Given Makiri's current low ranking we can hardly expect an easy one. She has some qualifier in round 1 (hardly a disaster) and then probably the no.16 seed in round 2. Safarova played a good match against Jankovic at Wimbledon, but Makiri can beat her.

Re: Acura Classic

The return of Dulkolenko!!! Hope this brings good vibes for her.

The singles draw is good for Maria. Though you can't take anybody for granted these days (e.g. Corzet), facing a qualifier in the first round will always be better than facing a seeded player. Also, when you're unseeded, and will draw a seed in the 2nd round, why not the 16th seed? Would you rather it be Jankovic already? Seriously, given that she's unseeded, who would you want Maria to switch places with?

Re: Acura Classic

Nice start to the Acura Classic for Makiri. :clap: She did what she was suppose to do against a qualifer like Hana Sromova and took care of business. I know it was only against a qualifier, but it`s nice to see Makiri win in a rather comfortable matter.
