Re: Moscow | Kremlin Cup
I do agree with you, MK Ultra and Celeborn!
...it's maria's best season ever, she probably will end it in the top 15! That's awesome!!
and her game hasn't been a disaster since the olympics, not at all!
Let's look back:
her first tournament after these amazing olympics was cincinnati, where she had to play venus williams in R1. Yeah she lost, but it was close, and it's not a shame to lose to venus.
Then she easily reached the final in new haven, and she really had chances to win it against an in-form petra kvitova.
At the USO, she played great against scheepers, and in R3 against hlavackova she didn't feel well and there were first signs of an injury (she wore a knee tape)
In september, she had to withdraw from seoul and tokyo due to a back injury. Her comeback match at beijing was tough, makarova is a tricky opponent
Yeah and at moscow, she showed some great tennis and a big fight in the first two rounds. Unfortunately, she picked up a cold right for the QF against arvidsson. So she was without energy and lost it. She still managed to secure a place at the YEC in the doubles.
So I guess her season after the olympics wasn't that bad, considering her injuries and some bad luck.
...olympic bronze medalist...
