Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

Maria the top ranked player Alona can be dangerous on her day. Hopefully Masha should take her out

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

Why is she playing Guangzhou and not Seoul?

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

Because she wants to win a title?Bali?
Kiri knows she's got alot of points to defend, especially in Moscow, so she needs to gain as many as she can.
She's playing Linz and Luxenburg after Tokio and Beijing.

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

Weaker field yeah. R1 looks worse than the rest of her draw basically.. so yeah lets try to win.

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

Maria's playing tomorrow on Center Court, third match. For once Maria is scheduled on main court of a tournament, there's no livestream (until Friday it seems). Well, at least we will see her lifting the trophy on Saturday

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

Hopefully for Kiri, Alona is still not back to her best...because the H2H doesn't look too good for Maria right now. That said, IF Kiri manages to screw this up I'd rather have her do it in a small event like Guanghzou and against a player I don't mind like Alona.

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

Alona has not been the same player since coming back from her injury looking very thin and frail.

Srsly, this tournament looks like it was made specifically for Maria to win the title.



EDIT: Does anyone know if Kiri's coach Jimy is with her in China?

Maria Kirilenko Petra Kvitová Stefanie Vögele
Arvidsson A. Bondarenko Chakvetadze Cirstea Görges Hlaváčková
Kerber Krajicek Larričre Lisicki Pivovarova Rus Šafářová

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

I watched Alona's match against Lisicki at the US Open and she didn't play that bad especially in the 1st set. She can be a dangerous player when she's in a good mood and Maria seems to be less motivated in small events,so we'll see what happen.

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

This is a great chance to get the title and some much needed points.

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

I'm sick of her screwing up in smaller events. She needs to win a title. Better start taking these serious. She won't get a better chance at a title here honestly.

Re: Maria in the Middle Kingdom - Guangzhou

The match is about to start. Damned livescore, it's so stressful even at 0-0
