Re: MaKiri in New York - US Open 2012!

Makiri won 2 and 1. Easier than I thought it would be. Nice win for Maria. But too many DF's (5) and UE's (19) for such an easy win.

Re: MaKiri in New York - US Open 2012!

Yes, she did it! 6:2, 6:1 against a potentially tricky player. I didn't have a working stream though, so I can't comment on the match. But I'm happy that looking at the livescore wasn't too hard, as things went pretty smoothly. She only had some problems to close the first set out, she led already 5:0.

Good night

Re: MaKiri in New York - US Open 2012!

I didn't watch the match (too late), but it seems Kiri destroyed Scheepers, that's a good thing

Let's continue this road to R4

Who's next ?

Maria Kirilenko

Re: MaKiri in New York - US Open 2012!

On a big court and at 17h, great

Maria should win easily in theory.

It was an easy match for Kiri today. She should win her third round match as well. Then comes...

On a side note Kiri looked really good in teal today after wearing that white Adidas dress for so long. Speaking of looking good Kiri's third round opponent is the lovely Andrea Hlavackova. Maria must win this match.

Re: MaKiri in New York - US Open 2012!

Indeed I'm impatient to see Kiri versus Hlavackova, they're both so lovely

And I think Maria should beat Andrea quite easily, before facing the one we musn't pronounce the name

Re: MaKiri in New York - US Open 2012!

Yihaaaaaaaaaaa, next win in straights for kiri!!

the scoreline was good, but maria wasn't that impressive as it seems, she was struggling with her serve a bit, especially in the first set. She played quite defensive, and didn't go for winners that much as usual. Obviously she didn't go at her limits, waiting for errors from her opponent. Well, you can't play brilliant in every match
All in all a solid win, well done Maria

and next is andrea hlavackova, what a lovely matchup

with a solid performance, kiri should win that too, so she had successfully defended her R4 points from last year! I guess that's all we can ask for, considering her most likely R4 opponent

Re: MaKiri in New York - US Open 2012!

Kiri is on Grandstand today, last time she was here was the thrilling Stosur match.

The organizers were wise to put this one on the USTA's most intimate court.
