Re: Maria in Barcelona

Maria I really wanted her to defend her title, and it looked like she could after yesterday's win.

But still, it's been a good week and a positive tournament.

Re: Maria in Barcelona

Well that was fun while it lasted.


Meh I'll completely take a beat down in the final over a first round loss anyday. She had a great week.

Re: Maria in Barcelona

when i woke up this morning and went to uni i was so confident that maria had won, then i found out then she didnt and she got bagelled! so unfair that she had to play 2 matchs in one day. imo maria didnt have enough time to recover and rest up. her body and muscles must've been aching when she played the final. but there are def positives to take from this tourney. for one thing, maria played a few good matches on clay and she managed to sustain most of her points from last year.

better luck next year maria

HANTUCHOVA // IVANOVIC // DELLACQUA // KIRILENKO // SAFINA // AZARENKA // ZVONAREVA
and more!

Re: Maria in Barcelona

Maria didn't have much left for the final and that showed in her performance. But atleast she had a good tournament. It's something for her to build on.

Re: Maria in Barcelona

Obviously, Makiri's run to the Final in Barcelona has sparked a fire under Igor. He definitely doesn't want her to have the bragging rights in the clay court season between the both of them. I'm proud of what Makiri had accomplished in Barcelona. You can't give yourself a chance to win the title if you don't make it to the finals right??? Fatigue obviously played a critical part in Makiri's performance. I'm glad that her knee held up though. Use this as a stepping stone for the 2009 French Open!!!
