Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

I think they call Kiri in the 4th round a cakewalk draw for Serena

Thank you Nina. That was cute to see.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

I like the new yellow and white Adidas dress Kiri is wearing and it's good to see her wear a headband again.

Kiri will need to play well and have Serena a little bit off her game to make it competitive. The serving power and weight of shot difference between Makiri and Serena is major. But Kiri won't be scared of playing Serena that's for sure. Kiri will need to play tough and crafty and I think she can against Williams.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Great job Maria.

Unfortunately I haven't really been able to see her matches so far this week.

Btw, headbands suck...visors rock.

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.

Haha yes, but anyway every WTA player is a cakewalk for Serena. On the other hand she would be destroyed by ATP players, Serena is a Tour on her own

Nyet to visors! Those are for sweet and shy girls. Headbands are for fierce and rocking girls.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

We will never agree. I think Kiri prefers the headband to the visor. But sometimes she has to wear a visor because of the sun. A visor can block more of the sun than a headband can.

On a side note I think Kiri plays smarter tennis when she is wearing a headband.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

...I do also prefer the headband on kiri

Maria will play Serena in the Rod Laver Arena, Start 7:30 PM
that means that this time I won't be able to watch the match, I will be at work when they start to play

I would really like to see this match live. At least I can take a look on the livescores from time to time

I think kiri can win a couple of games, maybe even a set when Serena becomes too relaxed during the 2nd set or so...
it's unrealistic to hope for a win from kiri, this time I already will be statisfied if she keeps fighting till the end, and I guess she will

DAVAI MARIA

Maria Kirilenko

...olympic bronze medalist...

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Doesn't matter that much if she's wearing a visor or an headband, she is always going to be gorgeous.
I prefer visors by the way.

People need to realize that Serena Williams is playing the best tennis of her all time great career at the ages of 30 and 31. It is mindboggling.
