Re: Maria in Madrid.

Zheng holds for 6-4 2nd set at 40-15 from 30-0 to 30-15. The match was 1 hour 37 minutes long.

Re: Maria in Madrid.

6-4 6-4,I expected a tougher loss.Of course,it's disappointing to see her lose in the 1st round but she had a bad draw and Zheng is not the kind of players Maria likes to play.

Good luck for doubles now

Re: Maria in Madrid.

4-6 4-6 Will Maria ever catch a break in the big tournaments Jie in the first round who almost beat Safina in Rome. *sigh*

Re: Maria in Madrid.

Unless Maria is injured, it's hard to understand her difficulty with Zheng's serve. I read that this is very slow clay and Zheng normally doesn't have a great 1st serve yet Zheng won 80% of points on her 1st serve. Zheng got 82% of her 1st serves in which sounds like she just spinned them in. I just don't get it.

Re: Maria in Madrid.

Having seen a lot of her matches lately I can safely say her knee isn't 100% I don't care what she says, moving is one of her strengths and it's been rather poor lately.

Re: Maria in Madrid.

I hope she can do well in RG because she's not going to be seed

Re: Maria in Madrid.

Because thats Maria...she has a lot of fun playing doubles, maybe she'll pull out but I doubt it. Doubles isn't as much work as singles.

Re: Maria in Madrid.

The result of today`s match isn`t much of a surprise. I`m glad that Makiri kept it competitive. Hopefully she`ll have much better luck in doubles.

1. Pavlyuchenkova vs. Peng
2. Razzano vs. Vesnina
3. Kirilenko/Pennetta vs. Hsieh/Husarova
4. Kleybanova/Peng vs. Mattek-Sands/Petrova (after suitable rest)

Re: Maria in Madrid.

I was surprised to see him in the main draw,so maybe it's a bit positive for RG
