Overall, considering her results lately, she gained some points and lived up to her seeding, so it's not a total disaster, but more a wasted opportunity for our Little Masha! :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

That's exactly how it was, Aravane was just pounding everything and Maria didn't really know what to do.

It was almost sad for Maria :o

I hope sponsor and money problems are now history :D

Aravane will be playing some indoor events in Europe this season, as well as hard court events in Asia. She will even be seeded in Kolkata. There is no reason why a first title can't come soon!

Awesome performance and you gained more rankings points, and surely also more fans :bowdown:

Yeah Aravane hit insane shots and lots of them went in. But disappointing performance from Little Masha, she came out cautious and gave softball sitters to her opponent most of the time. No will, no thought, only fear and spaghetti hands. Work on your mental preparation, Little Masha!

Beat Maria K. was easier than beat ALG and Lucie, and scores are showing it ;)

Curious to see how Kirilenko is going to play in Beijing, considering the actual field, it will be really hard

Tu m'épates vraiment, Aravane :bowdown:et dire qu'elle a toujours pas de sponsors :o Tu savais qu'elle avait glissé sur herbe parce qu'elle n'avait pas pu avoir des chaussures adaptées à la surface?

"Sans véritable aide financière, Aravane Rezai, 19 ans, n'a pas toujours pas décroché de contrat vestimentaire.
"J'achète des tenues sans marque et mes chaussures", a-t-elle précisé. "Pour la saison sur gazon, je n'avais pas de chaussures spéciales et, en glissant, je me suis donné un petit claquage au niveau des adducteurs sur mon premier tournoi à Eastbourne. Ca m'a coûté cher".
"L'année prochaine, j'aurais acheté mes chaussures à picots avant !" lance-t-elle. "Il vaut mieux que cela me soit arrivé en 2006 que l'année prochaine, où j'ai des chances d'être dans le tableau final de Wimbledon!"

C'est lamentable, vu le talent qu'elle a! :help:

Poor Kirilenko is destined to be overpowered all her life.

I don't think that's the case because when she does have some form she can challenge big hitters like Davenport and Sharapova, she just needs to find some form and turn one of her shots into a weapon.

I was concerned about Rezai overpowering and overwhleming Little Masha and that's what happened. :( Congrats to Rezai on a great run at the 2006 U.S. Open. :) But Elena Dementieva will exact some Russian revenge for Little Masha when she beats Rezai in the fourth round! :tennis: :devil: :yeah:

Sep 1st, 2006, 11:56 PM
maria really needs to stabalize all parts of her tennis. she needs to get a real coach that will only be with her. not hitting partners, not coaches from her sponsors, but a real coach. she needs to train hard and play agressive tennis like she was playing at the beginning of the year and of course beat lower ranked players like rezai, who maria has no business lossing to.

Well she has a huge fanbase here, and support from her hometown of Saint-Etienne (mayor)..., she's shown on tv etc... The only Frenchies who sucked in this story are the dumbos of the FFT but you'll have to know that her father too didn't want them involved after what was called the "disagreement" lol :p

So she has help from us Frenchies, dumbo! :cool: :kiss: And her support in the Rhône-Alpes region is crazy...

Pffffff... Les commentateurs américains sont cons comme leur pieds... :rolleyes:

Elle est née à Saint-Étienne, Rhône-Alpes, France comme tous ses frères et soeurs. D'ailleurs certaines personnes là-bas et la mairie l'aident financièrement. Ses seuls aides.


C'est parce qu'il y a eu des problèmes avec son père qui ne voullait pas que d'autres entraîneurs s'occupe d'elle, elle n'avait pas le droit de serrer la main des arbitres hommes, etc...etc...et certaines de ses adversaires ont eu des problèmes avec lui... :shrug:

Depuis il ne regarde plus un seul de ses matches "pour sa santé et celle des autres" comme il dit mdr et même Aravane aimerait bien être entraînée par quelqu'un d'autre...Et elle veut d'ailleurs prouver que ça marcherait à cet USO où elle est supervisée par son frère Anoush...(celui que son père voulait transformer en bête de tennis avant Aravane mais que ça n'intéressait pas... :p ) "pour prouver à [son] père qu'[elle] peut se débrouiller sans lui"...mdr Et la FFT comme d'hab' a très mal géré l'affaire aussi. Y'a pas de raison que la gamine aussi déterminée, battante et talentueuse paie pour son père...Ils se sont très mal débrouillés, ces empotés... Du coup, comme elle dit maintenant "elle joue pour son pays mais certainement pas pour sa fédé"...mdr Tu m'étonnes!

Quel bordel cette histoire! Par contre pour le sponsor pas d'excuses! C'est vraiment nul qu'elle n'en aie pas! :fiery:

I'm taking french lessons now but I'm not advance enough to read ;)
I'll translate what souam's said (though it'll be a bit censored :lol:) :

" She was born in Saint-Etienne, France and so were all her brothers & sisters. People from the town hall & others help her financially over there. Her only financial helps.

That's because there've been problems with her father who didn't want other trainers to work with her, she didn't have the right to shake hands with male umpires, and so on... and some of her opponents have had problems with him.

Since then he isn't watching any of her matches "for his own health and the one of the others" as he says. And even Aravane wants to work with another trainer. She wanted to prove it would work at the US Open where she's with her brother Anoush "to show her father she doesn't need him".

And the FFT (French Tennis Fereration) wasn't able to make things better with her father. Too bad such a talented girl has to pay for what her father's done. They totally f*cked up. Now she says "she plays for her country, and certainly not for her federation".

And too bad too that she doens't have any sponsor. "

Hope I translated correctly.

It's lovely how haters like to get focused on the recent awful streak, and seem to block from their minds (selective memory) that early in the year Maria stretched Davenport to 3 sets twice, Kuznetsova to 3 sets, Sharapova to 3 sets and beat Petrova 4 and 1. And according to you she always gets destroyed by top players. :weirdo:
I'm giving up posting on match results since nearly all replies are negative and provokative to the losing player, rather than happy and positive over the winning player.

About the match now:

Congratulations to Aravane who dealt the best with the wind and her missiles went past Maria's shotmaking.

Kirilenko. The quintessential top fifity player. Absolutely no threat to wn a slam, or to beat an elite player who even has their 'C' game.

I wouldn't go that far.

But I'll say #25-30 may be about right. She's caught in something of a limbo: she's not fast and consistent enough to make a career for herself as a retriever (and nowadays those only survive on the TIV circuit, as Aga Radwanska and her huge bandwagon will soon find out), and doesn't have the power to hit enough easy winners to be able to contend for bigger titles. Hingis lite just doesn't cut it these days. Kirilenko either becomes a better defender, or adds punch to her shots to prevent herself from being put on the defensive so often. The way she's playing now, #25-30, becoming a somewhat more glamorous version of Chakvetadze.
