Maria in Monterrery 2013!

Maria hasn't played here since 2009. It's a nice stop to pick up points in her march toward the Top 10.

Here's her section:

(3)Kirilenko v (wc)Hermoso
Dushevina v Q
Cohen v Vekic
Maria Sanchez v (7)Radwanska

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Maria in Monterrery 2013!

It seems a nice draw, I hope Kiri can go deep in this little tourney.

Re: Maria in Monterrery 2013!

I do agree, nice draw

Kiri could do great if she cares enough, but Dushevina can be a dangerous opponent for her.

First she has to play wildcard player Ximena Hermoso
Hermoso is currently 467th in the rankings, and it's their first meeting..

DAVAI KIRI

Maria Kirilenko

...olympic bronze medalist...

Re: Maria in Monterrery 2013!

It seems we'll be able to watch this match live, Monterrey has a good coverage after all (surely better than Indian Wells and Miami's).
Nope, I was wrong, they're going to broadcast Ivanovic and Kerber's matches. Damn.

Good draw for Maria.

Good luck Maria.

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.

Re: Maria in Monterrery 2013!

Maria breaks for 7-5 1st set at love. Stay focused Maria. The match is 48 minutes long.

Maria was down 0-30 at 4-4. I haven't able to follow the live scores until a little bit ago though.

Re: Maria in Monterrery 2013!

Maria had a bit of trouble in that first set, but got it together in the second. She needs to work on her first serve %, however, which was at a woeful 44%.

She now faces qualifier and former Top 20 junior Jovana Jaksic.
