It was! At first I didn't realize it was Ovechkin.. A Dutch guy came up and asked Kiri's dad to take a picture of him and Ovechkin and then it clicked!

Afterwards a guy approached me with the question if I could take a pic of him and Maria, and in return he'd take one of me with her. We asked but she said no because she was busy eating a banana so no success on that department.

I took some pics with my mobile phone, so no super quality nor any close ups since zooming in didn't really work. Should've brought my good camera but alas, too lazy to carry extra stuff. I'll upload them tomorrow after I sort out the good ones and check them on a bigger screen. I'm no good at taking pictures

A funny anecdote; Ovechkin was cheering Maria on.. in Spanish by saying 'vamos Maria'.

nice, thx for your report
so she was too busy with her banana?

no prob, it doesn't matter if your pics aren't of super quality, every pic of kiri is worth to watch

btw. kiri and nadia just won their quarterfinal 7-5 and 6-1

in the semi final they will play against pennetta/schiavone or begu/niculescu

Maria Kirilenko

Re: Kiri in the Netherlands - s-Hertogenbosch

My pleasure! Now I want to visit more tournaments. Great experience
I think they'll meet Errani and Vinci in the final, again! If so, I do hope they win this time. A good prep for Wimbly.

Here ya'll go:

Re: Kiri in the Netherlands - s-Hertogenbosch

thanks for your pics, firebee!

the court (stadium) seems to be quite small, but so you had a great view


...kiri and nadia have to play against an italian pair for a place in the final: pennetta/schiavone


Court #2 (from 11.00hrs)
1. ATP: Ito vs. Paire
2. ATP: Malisse/Norman vs. Cabal/Tursunov (NB 14.30hrs; after suitable rest)
3. Pennetta/Schiavone vs. Kirilenko/Petrova (NB 16.30hrs; after suitable rest)


...I hope they can win, DAVAI girls

..and guess which pair would await in the final...right....errani/vinci

Maria Kirilenko

...olympic bronze medalist...

Re: Kiri in the Netherlands - s-Hertogenbosch

My pleasure

Yeah, it was a small court. Besides Centre Court and Court 1, all were quite small.

Lol, so Kiri will meet Schiavone again. This time I think she'll win even though Schiavone seems in form as I saw them beating Bertens/Rus yesterday.

Re: Kiri in the Netherlands - s-Hertogenbosch

ok, so we had a lot of rain delays lately in s-hertogenbosch

as pennetta/schiavone had to retire, we do have kiri/nadia in the final

they are going to play in the afternoon/evening, after nadia has got some rest after her win in the singles

Centre Court (from 12.00hrs)
1. ATP: Ferrer vs. Petzschner
2. Singles Final: Nadia Petrova vs. Urszula Radwanska (NB 14.30hrs)
3. Doubles Final: Errani/Vinci vs. Kirilenko/Petrova (after suitable rest)

so yet another chance to take revenge on errani/vinci, go get them girls!! DAVAI

Re: Kiri in the Netherlands - s-Hertogenbosch

the match is over, and we have another win for errani/vinci, 6-4, 3-6 and 11-9

it's their 7th title of the season, and the 4th win in a row against kiri/nadia after madrid, rome and roland garros, ...

fortunately, at wimbledon they can't meet them before the final
