Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Glad you survived this match, it should have been really tough to see it live. You said her serve was quite bad, how was the rest of her game ?

Can't wait for more pics

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Rest of her game was okay.. lacking a bit of power but she prob just needs a few matches to get going. Also she didn't come forward enough.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Very very close... But it was only the first match of the year, hopefully she can rise her form.

It's actually good that she plays qualifying in the end, imagine she would have played only main draw directly against someone really good...

Good luck for your next match!

@Agronsky: Have fun (Actually I'm a little jealous )

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

wow, very close match but I'm happy that she could come back and win in the end. After all it's just the first match of the year so it's understandable that she needs some time to find her rhythm.
Arvidsson is next, haven't seen her play in ages but I hope Kiri can get through a bit easier

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Maria has never played against Arvidsson and I have no clue how Arvidsson plays. Considering this plus Kiri is not at her best yet, this match is uncertain

Hopefully Maria will prevail

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

match report from Nikkie (Agronsky)

@badasskiri
Serve is up the shit again

Kiri not a happy baby right now

2 terrible calls against Kiri and she asks "are you joking" then she just leaves a ball that was going in... not happy at all.

Kiri just threw her racquet... nothing working at all

getting bageled and losing in qualies to arvidsson totally amazing prep.

Well Kiri tanked the final games just terrible didn't even care

Shouldn't have switched racquets. She's hitting with even less power than before



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

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Is it possible to go back to the old stick? I think Yonex discontinued her old one.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Yeah it was bad. Hoping maybe she just thinks she's too good for qualies didn't want to be there. She can do much better. Too passive. The Kiri who beat Stosur twice last year was nowhere to be seen. She started well to go up 2-0 and I thought wow this will be good, she even served well.. then I dunno what happened. At 0-4 down Jimy was still trying to encourage her but she just didn't want to be there anymore.
