Cincinnati: Kiri back on hardcourt, faces V. Williams in R1

..after a sensational grass-season, with the win of the bronzemedal as the final highlight, maria is back on hardcourt this week

this time, luck wasn't on her side, kiri (12) has to play venus williams (WC) in R1

williams leads 3-0 in their H2H, but they didn't meet for 5 years!

the other matches in their quarter are:

sheepers - mchale
zheng - hantuchova
bye for sara errani (7)

well, a tough first round for maria, but I hope she can take this hurdle

DAVAI Maria!!!

She has to be favourite to beat Venus. Hopefully she can build upon the form and confidence from London and upset a few of the higher seeds too.

Tough draw for Maria in singles.

Good luck in singles and doubles Maria.
