Re: Wimbledon 2008

Maria returned horribly today, she struggled to get the ball back in court

But apart from that, she played pretty well....I've got loads of pics which I'll upload later.

Re: Wimbledon 2008

It's just unbelieveable actually. Will this girl get ever some rest?
If it's not the rain, then it's to forget about committing for doubles on time.

Sunday winning Barcelona on clay. Monday practise in Rosmalen on grass and Tuesday playing 2 times. Then Wednesday playing in Roehampton. She's still not finished this week.
Wimbledon singles even hasn't started and I really think she can't start fresh at it.
Gladly she hasn't even real injuries lately (only little ones), but I kinda worry about her. Of course I believe she has fun with tennis, but sometimes it's just too much. We actually can't expect great results with this type of schedule.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: Wimbledon 2008

The way Maria plays exerts a lot of strain on her body. I do worry about injuries in the long term.

Me 2. She's young now, so mostly she can take it. But in a few years... I'm not so sure.

Maria and Flavia won 7-6 6-2. Now finally some rest for our girl, at least for 3 days.

Re: Wimbledon 2008

I went to Roehampton and it was rather like watching Maria and Flavia play down the local park. It was so up close and intimate. The first set was fairly tight with quite a few errors. But they began to play with far more confidence in the second and their quality started to show. I've got tickets for Court 1 on the day of the women's doubles semis. Here's hoping I see them play again in a fortnight.
