Maria has entered this tournament...starting 1st November..
Will she play?
Hopefully her shoulder/pec muscle is alright to go by then but we wouldnt want her to aggrevate the injury before the YEC..

Andy.
Oct 25th, 2004, 02:59 AM
With her excelent week in Zurich she should feel confident at Phillidelphia. Hopefully her shoulder is just a little niggle. Good Luck Maria stay healthy

Wow Maria as number one seed that is impressive. If she is injury free she will be once agian a strong chance for the title.

first seed !! wow, that is amazing. I just hope that she will feel fine and not play with an injury !!

i thought that she wasn't allowed to play anymore tournaments (except LA)
because of her age, or am I wrong ?

No she still has a few tournaments up her sleeve..;)
I believe Maria is only allowed to play 17 tournaments between her 17th birthday (April 19) and her 18th birthday...after Zurich, she's played 10
(not including GS as her rank qualified her to play)
So theres 7 left for Maria before April next year (not including the AO)
:D

Tough draw. Let's hope her injury will be healed.

Andy Mac
Oct 26th, 2004, 08:53 PM
u think it will be healed?

Frank
Oct 26th, 2004, 09:02 PM
I don't know anything about her injury.

Dan23
Oct 26th, 2004, 11:31 PM
Its a muscle strain and I would be surprised if it is healed entirely by next week.
The way Maria goes after her shots I would have thought it would be quite easy for it to re-occur if it wasnt fully repaired??

Andy Mac
Oct 28th, 2004, 12:25 PM
very true my friend..very true... i see youve upgraded your sig!

Andy.
Oct 29th, 2004, 10:16 PM
The Main Draw

1 Mauresmo | bye
Benesova vs. Brandi
QF/LL vs. Fedak
5 V Williams vs. Raymond

3 Sharpova | bye
QF/LL vs. Kostanic
Jankovic vs. Vento-Kabchi
8 Molik vs. Weingartner

6 Zvonareva vs. QF/LL
Dechy vs. Pisnik
Shaughnessy vs. WC-McCain
4 Capriati | bye

7 Petrova vs. Panova
Frazier vs. WC-Vaidisova
QF/LL vs. QF/LL
2 Myskina | bye

This is a tough draw for Masha she will have to play how she played at Zurich to go far in this tournament. She will probably face Jankovic or Alicia Molik in the Quarters for perhaps a revenge match. If She is playing well i think she could do really well here and set her up for the YEC. Good Luck Masha

Dan23
Oct 30th, 2004, 04:31 AM
Thanks Andrew :)
Yeah a pretty tough draw but a good warm up for the YEC where all matches are against top 8 players :D
A rematch against Molik looks likely in the QF's :eek:
I sure hope Maria has recovered from the pec muscle injury as she's going to need to be hitting at full strength to get deep into this tournament and we dont wanna see a reoccurance of the injury :sobbing:
Mauresmo most likely in the SF...good to see Nicole V in the draw too :D
Good luck Masha :hatoff: :clap2:

Maria is down 0-4

1st Set 2-6 to Kostanic....
Fight back Masha :rocker2:

WimbyChamp
Nov 4th, 2004, 12:05 AM
Something is wrong. She is either injured or the surface isn't at all suited to her.

Andy Mac

has her injury healed guys?

Dan23
Nov 4th, 2004, 12:08 AM

Surely Maria wouldnt have played if she was still injured..
but maybe she may have hurt it again..:sobbing:

When was the last time Maria lost the first 4 games of a match?

WimbyChamp
Nov 4th, 2004, 12:29 AM
Yahoo sports say Maria is 5-2 down, and Hantuchova is 5-3 down. This is very strange! How can these 2 players be losing?

Kacey
Nov 4th, 2004, 12:32 AM
no kidding...its pretty fucked up. both pretty gals are losing....

This is weird. Dani was 5-3 down in 1st set but now it says she won 1st set 6-3. This is very strange.

I hope that 4-3 lead sharapova has in 2nd set invovles a break.

Dan23

Well I assumed that from 1-4 in the 1st set:
- Jelena served for 1-5
- Maria held for 2-5
- Jelena served it out 2-6

and Maria serves 1st in the 2nd set :)

Lemonskin.
Nov 4th, 2004, 12:59 AM

2-6 6-4 3-0 (ret)

Jelena retired with an abductor strain..

Nov 4th, 2004, 01:24 AM
I hope Jelena's injury isn't the reason Maria came back to win. I hope its cos Maria played well.

I think Daniela won, too. 6-1 in the third, in Quebec.

This (Advanta) must be the strangest 850 thousand effing dollar tournament in recent years. No live scoreboard on the official site. I mean, even the Tier 3 Japan Open had one.

A full strength serve will be handy this time too..

If you forget about the first set, that was quite a demolition.

If Masha can battle past Momo (which would be an enourmous feat) then I think she will win the tournament. Vera and Petrova are good, but nothing Maria can't beat I think.

A Vera in good form is not less tough than Mauresmo.

Is it confirmed she withdrew because of her shoulder? That would be bad of course. :(

Well at least she beat Molik and made the SEMI Final.

A good achievement, even with an injury.

HOPE YOU GET BETTER MARIA!!

I will now take it as a bad sign if Maria is in the semi with two other Russians. She has lost in the two instances that's happened. :sad:

And if you're Russian or a fan of Russian players, you should, too. I mean, wow, 3 of them in the semi, you'd think at least one of them would go home with the title. Not quite.

In the China Open, there were 3 Russians in the semi, Maria loses to Kuzzie, then Kuzzie loses to Serena in the Final, which took 3 sets.

Now in the Advanta tournament, there were 3 Russians in the semi, Maria loses to Mauresmo by walkover, then Mauresmo beats Zvonareva in 3 sets.
