I can't believe that Kirelinko caused Maria Sharapova to be bageled. Maria Sharapova needs to find another partner.

they won last year :rolleyes: so kirilenko isn't a bad double player
btw sharapova was baggled twice by Davenport , so don't say it's all Kirilenko's fault.

i doubt its kirilenko's fault since she has been playing really good doubles this year. Plus Sharapova hasnt played doubles in a long time. I think the last time she played womens doubles was Biringham* with kirilenko last year?? i know she played mix doubles at the US Open but i think thats about it.

Hopefully kirilenko does good in Singles.
Masha better defend her title as well :)

Kirilenko is by far the better doubles player than Sharapova ;)

Anyways.. Well done Marion & Tammy :D :woohoo:

er no it's not. have you ever seen sharapova volley? she has hideous feel at net.

maybe you don't actually play tennis but doubles is a very different prospect from singles. Even the greatest players of all time like Sampras were not automatically the best doubles players on court and were often made to look foolish by more experienced doubles players.

in singles you can get away with blasting huge serves and groundies with no variety but in doubles it is so much less effective and far more often than not a well placed serve or shot will win you the point.

I put that down to Sharapova being an inexperienced doubles player. Poor Makiri, should have played with someone else!

It's true, Makiri is by far a greater doubles player.

Sharapova teamed up with Tammy and took two double titles. I would love to see both play together again but it should have not happen because Sharapova always focus on only in single.

Pair of Tammy and Kirilenko reached SF in Hyderabad this year. Unfortunately Tammy was playing injury her foot and their team lost to second seed Ting Li/ Tian Tian Sun(CHN) 1-6,0-6.

C'mon Tammy/Marion !!!!

Its disappointing to see them out but big Maria has only played Doubles officially twice since Birmingham last year and were up against very good opponents in this match. I dont think this will affect either Maria's game in the singles though. So have fun while while you can :cool:

she's ok when it's a simple put away i'll give you that but when she's made to go down low and use touch she has looked foolish. In doubles you are far more likely to have to play these kind of tricky volleys. She made some great pick ups at Wimbledon but the majority of them were more lucky than skilful.

Bartoli is a clever doubles player who would have been aware of this.

:eek: I know Sharapova hasn't played dubs in awhile, but they should have won that match, or atleast won a set. Kirilenko is a nice doubles player. :)


Bartoli/Tammy :bounce: :p

No, it's not a ridiculous statement ;) Compare their games :) Maria S is not good at the net, she's just another hardhitter on the baseline IMO, whereas Maria K likes to go to the net where she feels at home and does well.

I love masha but makiri is a good doubles player (Final Rome with Medina-Garrigues). Anyway, marion and tammy are better

Prizeidiot
Jun 7th, 2005, 08:38 AM
Yep, Kirilenko is certainly the better doubles player in that team... she actually plays old-school doubles (ie, goes to the net, plays the angles) And as people have said, Sharapova hasn't played much doubles and isn't a good net player.

And also, Tanasugarn lives for grass, so it's not THAT bad

i saw the match and Bartoli and Tammy got going after a slow start.
they were too good at net and too fast.

both Maria's made too many errors :(
