Re: Maria News And Articles

Tarpischev talking about Maria :

Что касается Кузнецовой, то она редко показывает игру больше 70% от собственных возможностей, что является больше психологическим фактором. В данном случае она не сыграла в тот теннис, в который умеет играть. Ее результат зависел от ее собственного исполнения. Я бы похвалил еще, наверное, Кириленко, которая прибавила, и высказал бы сожаление, что не играла Клейбанова, которая реально игрок мировой двадцатки. И похвалил бы в парных комбинациях выступления Весниной и Кириленко. Что касается мужской части, то, конечно, результаты удовлетворить не могут. Здесь и сказались травмы игроков. Плюс все-таки мужская часть сборной у нас возрастная. Касаемо резервов, мы испытываем проблемы, прежде всего в недостаточном финансировании: они не играют полный цикл предполагаемых нами турниров. В этом возрасте надо играть 30--34 недели соревнований, а они играют в три раза меньше.

Менее чем через две недели стартует Уимблдон. Каковы перспективы наших спортсменов? // "Газета.Ru"

У нас в таком же ключе играет Петрова. Так же играют в принципе Веснина и Кириленко. Главенствующее в игре на траве -- подача и прием подачи. Исполнение крученой подачи достаточно проблематично на траве, потому что крученая подача отскакивает, как средний плоский мяч, поэтому это является достаточно удобным для приема. Хорошие шансы имеют наши девочки, включая Павлюченкову, отчасти и Кузнецову. Клейбанова в парных комбинациях, Кириленко имеют хорошие шансы на победу. Хорошо играет парные комбинации на траве и Макарова. Что касается ребят, здесь у нас проблемность также остается. Не думаю, что кто-то из них пройдет далеко. В принципе у Турсунова трава -- любимое покрытие. Есть еще Звонарева: ей не хватило двух недель к подготовке к «Ролан Гарросу», чтобы выступить более успешно, не успела адаптироваться. На траве может сыграть хорошо: она проповедует такой достаточно приемлемый для травы атакующий теннис с задней линии, неплохо играет и пару.

Неужели моя любимая теннисистка Анечка Чакветадзе так и не оправилась после кошмарного случая, связанного с ограблением ее дома? Как она поживает после серии обмороков в этом году и не завершит ли свою карьеру? // Настя

Реально она хочет играть, и я опять-таки больше взаимодействую с ее отцом Джамалом. Он сказал, что она идет на поправку, хоть и медленно, и надеется скоро начать играть. Здесь тоже нужно время. Она хочет играть, несомненно. У нее умная содержательная игра, ее можно сравнить с Мыскиной, Хингинс. Но ей, как и Джоковичу, и Кириленко, не хватает достаточной скоростно-силовой выносливости. Поэтому стоит вопрос работы и подтягивания слабых сторон. Нужна нервная система, чтобы ее хватило на работу вне теннисного корта. На корте игра предполагает переключение нервной системы, поэтому игровики живут гораздо дольше, чем игроки из технических видов спорта. Если хватит нервной системы на монотонную трудную работу, конечно, она сможет играть и вернуться в ту же десятку.

According to google, it seems that he's saying nice words. If someone talking russian could just quickly sum up what he said, it would be nice. I'm surprised to see him saying that as he never calls her in the fed cup team.

Re: Maria News And Articles

He always has nice things to say about her.. perhaps it's not him not asking her to play but her not making herself available.

Re: Maria News And Articles

How not to like her

It was a bit strange with the last fed cup tie, at first she was on the team, but in the end she wasn't. But my guess is also that she pulled out herself and wanted to practice after her not so great start into the season. Hopefully she will play in the final :-)

Re: Maria News And Articles

Maria Kirilenko said that last week’s wedding between former player Elena Dementieva and hockey's Maxim Afinogenov in Moscow was the best one she ever attended. Kirilenko went to the wedding with her long time boyfriend, fellow Russian player Igor Andreev. Other players to attend the Olympic gold medalist’s wedding were Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Vera Zvonareva, Dinara Safina, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Elena Vesnina and Vera Dushevina, among others.

"Elena and her husband were always with the guests," Kirilenko told TENNIS.com at Stanford, where she will face Serena Williams in the second round. "They were sitting with us, talking on the microphone, they were dancing together. It was unbelievable. Normally when you go to wedding, you are sitting and watching and it’s kind of boring."

Kirilenko said that the newlyweds performed a duet, singing a love song to each other while dancing. "Elena told me they practiced a lot. I was surprised she sang well."

Kirilenko said that before Dementieva tossed the bouquet, that Dementieva winked at her to go to the middle of the pack and try to catch it. But she had no such luck.

"All the girls were trying to catch it and then suddenly from somewhere Dushevina came and sprinted and stole it from me," Kirilenko said with a laugh.

Re: Maria News And Articles

Quotable Quotes... Kirilenko In Stanford

STANFORD, CA, USA - After going 5-9 to start the year Maria Kirilenko has picked up her level again, going 8-4 in her last five tournaments - including reaching the fourth round of Roland Garros and the third round of Wimbledon. Also in that record is a first round win over Julia Goerges in Stanford - her first Top 20 win in a year. The No.25-ranked Russian met the press after that win...

On her 5-9 start to the season...
"At the beginning of the year I wasn't happy about my singles results. When the clay court season came I lost early in my first few tournaments but I felt I was playing well - I think I just got a bit unlucky. I felt my form coming up again. But the whole time I was doing well in doubles - so at least there was something!"

On her first round win over Goerges in Stanford...
"I think I played a pretty good match for my first match on hardcourts after Wimbledon, especially since I had such a long break - I didn't play for four weeks. First I didn't play at all for one week, just did complete rest - then I practiced for the last few weeks. I was happy with how I played today. I didn't make mistakes - I was playing very clean. That's how I won against her."

On playing Serena in the second round...
"I just played her at Wimbledon, but it's a completely different surface this time. I'm ready to play her again. I'll try to do my best, try to win of course!"

On playing Serena in general...
"Every time I play Serena she plays so well against me. She has a very good serve - I couldn't break her at all at Wimbledon. That's a big advantage for her. I'm hoping my return will be good, and maybe her serve won't be as good this time! She's powerful in the rest of her game but I feel less pressure there because I can play the rally. The most important thing for me is returning.

"I really need to be focused from the beginning too. Every time I play her, I'm always 3-0 or 4-0 down early on. I just have to be ready from the first point, because if I fall behind like that, it's always so tough to win against her.

"The first time I played her I was 16 and it was at the French Open... I was up 4-2 in the third set and lost 6-4 in the third set. I was small. I also wasn't even thinking about anything - I just went out there and played. I have to do the same thing this time, just not think about it. I've seen video of my matches back then and my face was always so serious and focused - I think I'm still like that.

"Serena's a great champion. She has won so many tournaments and has a huge amount of experience. She didn't play for a year and comes back and is winning again. You have to be so tough to do that. Again though, it's important for me not to think about it - I'll think of it as just another match."

On Dementieva's wedding...
"It was a great wedding! It was the best wedding I've ever been to. Elena and her husband were always with the guests, talking to us a lot, singing and dancing... normally at weddings the pair just sits and watches, and it's kind of boring. But Elena and Maxim were interacting with us. They even sang a song together - I wish I could listen to them one more time! I think they practiced a lot for that. It was a Russian song, about love and being together - I don't remember all the words. I was surprised, she sang well! She was also telling me it took almost half a year to organize the wedding, which is amazing. It was amazing.

"I didn't catch the bouquet. All the girls tried to catch it but Dushevina came out from somewhere and stole it from me! I said okay, whatever."

How about a piece before the open starts? We need something to cheer up before that ;-). If it is allowed to do so, I'm not sure about this.
