Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

So Kiri is actually in Qualies.


(1/wc)Maria Kirilenko (RUS) v Varvara Lepchenko (USA)
Erika Sema (JPN) v Sofia Arvidsson (SWE)
Iryna Bremond (FRA) v Anastasija Sevastova (LAT)
Monique Adamczak (AUS) v (10)Alexandra Dulgheru (ROU)

She plays 2nd tomorrow. I'll be there

Great, hopefully you could be her lucky charm there

by the way why is she not in MD ? late registration, not good enough ranking (even so she's top30) ?

Come on Maria

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Strong field she was only like 3 out of MD. Basically the whole 20 is there minus like 3 players.

I hope I am. I'll take lots of pics

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

There were 2 top 20 WCs but no one took them so they go to the top 2 alts Hantuchova and Safarova. It's kinda better for her to play Q's instead of straight in MD anyways.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Okay, that's fair. Yeah, maybe playing matches against less good players will give her rythm before the MD and we'll see how ready she is after her training/holidays in the USA.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

I think qualies will be good considering she didn't play this week. Make it to the main draw Maria!

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

I knew she was playing this night (in France), thanks to this 10h lag I was sleeping and not following the livescore

Glad she finally won after being 2-5 down in 3rd

Hopefully she will improve for next match.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

She should have been up 4-0 in the final set. Had gps and break points but couldn't convert. Lepchenko kept getting coaching even after her coach came down twice, he was standing on the balcony where players can sit and watch giving her all kinds of hand signals. I can't believe she saved mpps and won, she's a fighter. Her serve needs some work. Far too many annoying DFs. At one stage she let out the biggest sigh.

I'll upload some more pics later.
