Makiri's just about to become a REAL THREAT in doubles game

don't you think so??
she's had very good results with various partners this year already. okay maybe there are still some big titles and results missing, but she's still so young and i think her recent achievements show that she's improving. i'd love to see her becoming a top class doubles player

I hope so. I also wonder if her better results in doubles may have something to do with her fitness problems because doubles requires less running.

I would rather see Makiri becoming a REAL THREAT in Women's SINGLES instead.

Re: Makiri's just about to become a REAL THREAT in doubles game

Doubles is good for Maria a totally differnet game to singles, Maria isn't overpowered and she gets to play at net a lot which is one of the best areas of Maria's game. I still say shes way too talented in singles to focus on doubles.

Re: Makiri's just about to become a REAL THREAT in doubles game

Maria now has the same career-high in singles and doubles:

Career-High Singles : 18 (July 7, 2008)
Career-High Doubles : 18 (March 23, 2009)

no point in focusing just on the doubles, she can do well in both

yay this thread doesn't intend to point out that she should only focus on doubles, cos she's a damn good singles player as well! just wanted to mention that it's a quite good thing for her to be successful in both disciplines
doubles is so much different from singles, but she can do well in both.

Remeber Maria saying she believed she'd be #1 ranked player some day? Fate is certainly not without a sense of humor!
