Re: Barcelona KIA 08

A Maria-Domi final would be nice but why is Maria playing a clay court event after Roland Garros

Play a grass court tournament Maria

Re: Barcelona KIA 08

Maria had a good clay season she obviously feels confident on the clay wants to win some more. She will play one grass tournament before Wimbledon. Good luck Masha.

Re: Barcelona KIA 08

Who organises clay court tournament after RG? I think it's "made in Poland" trademark

Re: Barcelona KIA 08

Van Harpen wants Maria to play a lot on clay because he thinks it will develop her game, help her think better on court.

However, Maria has a real chance to gain big points at Wimbledon before having to defend all her points from the second half of last season. She will have more chance of doing that if she can get better seedings. Still, maybe Van Harpen is really thinking long-term.

Re: Barcelona KIA 08

She has got highest seeding in Estoril so far, just after Flavia. Now she's no.1. We must search for fact if it's first time she is 1st seed...

Re: Barcelona KIA 08

I hope she doesn't feel any extra pressure. She really will be the one to watch here.

Don't forget fantastic effort of Carla Suarez on RG. And great Dominika Besides there are three girls on the entry list who defeated Maria this season. It's Anabel, Salerni and Errani.

Re: Barcelona KIA 08

I thought she would've played Birmingham considering she did quite well there last year. The money's either really good or her coach knows what he's doing or she really hates grass.
