US Open 2007

The 2007 US Open main draw came out today. Here's Maria's early section of the draw:

-------------------------------------
SREBOTNIK, Katarina SLO [22]
MOLIK, Alicia AUS

KIRILENKO, Maria RUS
MULLER, Martina GER

KOSTANIC TOSIC, Jelena CRO
VESNINA, Elena RUS

VAKULENKO, Julia UKR
HANTUCHOVA, Daniela SVK [9]
-------------------------------------

So, she plays Muller whom she destroyed last week. Then she's set to play #22 Srebotnik, who beat her in Stanford earlier this summer 0 and 6. If she gets by that, she could face #9 Daniela! All winnable matches. Probably as good a draw as you could hope for. I wish she could've faced Stosur earlier who is struggling.

Now what happens if Zvonareva or S Williams pulls out and they give Maria a seed? Do they redo the draws? Do they put Maria in the place of the spot where Vera or Serena were? Anyone know?

Makiri Fan since Roland Garros '04

Re: US Open 2007

Muller in the first round...
I'm okay with that..
I think it's a good draw for Maria..

Don't know about the "re-draw" Ronnie..
Maybe in this early stadium they might do a re-draw, in which Maria would be seeded.. ?

Re: US Open 2007

The draw looks favorable for Makiri and with the way she has been playing lately, i could see her reaching the round of 16.

Re: US Open 2007

After Muller the draw gets tricky for Maria. The next possible opponents are not tough but tricky. I don't think she's ever beaten them before.

Re: US Open 2007

If to take US Open Draw it has developed for Maria concerning successful, could be and is worse. I so think, that to Martina Muller Masha will pass without special problems since one week ago Masha in easy struggle has beaten it in two sets. As to others tennis players, I do not undertake yet to do what or forecasts. We live we shall see. Good luck Makiri!!!

MARIA KIRILENKO

Elena Dementieva

Anna Kournikova

Anna Chakvetadze

Re: US Open 2007

A pretty good draw. Kata and Dani won't be easy though. Good luck Makiri!

Re: US Open 2007

not a bad draw but it could have been a little easier than having molik and vesnina srebotnik and hantuchova

Nicole Vaidisova
Caroline Wozniacki
Victoria Azarenka
Daniela Hantuchova
Alicia Molik, Olivia Rogowska, Sam Stosur + All Other Aussies

Re: US Open 2007

I think it's good draw for Maria,after all the draw in this part,such player's there
ara some at who against Maria already to play,and be at who already defeat(Müller,
Petrova),so know the rival's well and she sure know,what will be needed to play.
(I think the 31(Radwanska) and 32(Krajicek)seed not got better draw.)
I wish they would good play Maria and would succeed again 3(or 4)matches win,as in
Los Angeles and in San Diego.
Question,whether in Toronto for injury remain mark?
Come on Maria!

Re: US Open 2007

I'm comfortable with this draw. There isn't a player in Maria's quarter of the draw who really scares me. I would expect a tough match against Srebotnik and Dani won't be any pushover, but having Petrova and Kuznetsova as potential 4th round/quarter-final opponents is as good as she could expect.

I don't think either Petrova or Kuznetsova is in great form at the moment, so Maria should not lack belief if she faces these players.

Re: US Open 2007

Tricky draw, not unbeatable but they're good too. Hope Maria's at her best and brings her summer form to Flushing Meadows. Take it a match at a time, best not to look ahead.

Re: US Open 2007

If Makiri plays in her current form from San Diego & L.A., she will go deep in the draw. Like Aaron said, just take one match at a time. Good luck Makiri at Flushing Meadows. Play your game, treat every point as a match point, go for your shots, and FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
