Too bad Jon Wertheim believes in Makiri more than Makiri does. I'm not expecting anything from Maria at Wimbledon. She has never made the second week there and her recent form and heartbreaking losses in singles and doubles has to hurt her confidence. How can Masha and Nadia lose to powder puffs Errani and Vinci on grass?

I would love to se something spark Makiri's fine all court game but at this point I can't see it. Her game is in a rut and she doesn't know how to get her game out of that rut. Too bad she doesn't solid have tennis professionals running her career. Solid is a word Maria needs to learn about. Her talented all court game is not solid enough that's for sure. Nor is her confidence and self belief. What a shame.

Did Maria notice who was winning the grass court warmups? Players not as good as she is. I wish that frustration would jolt Makiri forward. But if she's happy with her life and career what can we do other than root her on?

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Maybe, or he has a taste for joking

I just hope Maria won't lose shamefully in R1 against this Cadantu...

Re: Wimbledon

yeahhhh, kiri breaks for 6-1 2nd set!

ok, so the first step to the semifinal is done

5 aces from maria and some nice shots in the 2nd set!!
there she played a lot better than in the first one, which was quite close..

let's hope kiri can build on that win now to take another win in R2

Re: Wimbledon

Hope the potential doubles 2R vs. the William sisters will get some attention.
