Re: Kiri in New Haven!

Maria will play her 2nd round match as the 5th and last match on the "stadium" court, right after radwanska - govortsova (NB 19.00hrs)

..that means she will play at about 2.00 - 4.00 AM central european time...I guess I won't sleep well then, I probably will wake up and will have to check the live-scores

it's the first meeting between kiri and barthel! mona is 32-19 this year, and has won a tournament (at Hobart in January)
She also reached the SF at Bastad and held a MP against aga in R2 at Montreal

it's not gonna be easy, but maria could win this if she stays focused! DAVAI KIRI!!

Re: Kiri in New Haven!

Apparently Barthel withdraw from the match due to illness. Good for Kiri, although I think it would have been a very interesting match with Kiri as the favorite. Actually Barthel is the german who I like the most, so good recovery for her .

Rematch vs. Radwanska again...

well, so kiri is in the QF, but it's not how you want to advance to the next round...let's hope mona will be ok for the USO

so if aga wins over govortsova, and this is very likely, we will finally have the rematch kiri - aga!
I am looking forward to it, and I think maria could have good chances this time! Further, it would be a good test for her before the USO

..and I am sure there will be a livestream at least, or a live coverage on eurosport ^^

Re: Kiri in New Haven!

Aga retired against Govortsova @ 0-6, 1-2, so Maria will have nice chance for semis here! ES will show New Haven live from thursday, lets hope Kiri will be televised!
This will be first meeting between this two players.

Re: Kiri in New Haven!

Good to see that Makiri stopped her 3 match losing streak in New Haven. Now she has a good chance to make only her third semifinal of the year.

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

Re: Kiri in New Haven!

well, kiri's cincy draw was so unlucky, so I guess it's just right to be luckier this time

What an opportunity to reach the semi's, Maria MUST win this! It's the first meeting between govortsova and kiri. Govortsova is currently no. 82 and 18-18 this season, and she reached R2 in every slam this year.

They will play right after wozniacki-cibulkova on the stadium, begin is 1 PM

I hope we will get a live coverage on eurosport

DAVAI KIRI!!!

Re: Kiri in New Haven!

Eurosport will show Wozniacki-Cibulkova, followed by Kirilenko-Govortsova! Not so often to see Kiri two weeks in a row live on Eurosport! This is a great opportunity for semis and adding some new points, because she has to defend 4th round in US open in next week!
DAVAI MaKiri!
