Ok I never used to be a fan of the nicknames but they have grown on me :)

My question, if you could chose in the Aussie Open, one of our favourite players Maria S can have a 3rd Grand Slam title or Maria Kirilenko to win her first, which would you make happen?

I know its very unrealistic becaus of Makiri's form but we can all have dreams for our favourites..

Personally my choice would be a first Grand Slam for Maria K :worship:

what about you?

Hm.. I'd have to go for Makiri (I hate this nickname though)... i prefer 'baby Maria' (though isn't she older than Sharapova?)
Because if baby Maria won then i'd be a shock, it would be more fun for the tennis world!

Yeah I agree Baby Maria is cuter but maybe a bit to cute as she is so damn fit :p
Good to see you agree though :)

Of course and without question!!! :D Anyway, I am not a Kirilenko fan so can't in any way relate to this suggestion/idea. I think Maria Sharapova really has a great chance at the AO next year. She should have been in the last two finals really. Ah why did electronic line calling only debut after the AO this year?! :(

:bounce: :lol:

I think Kirilenko can go deep in a slam at one point (qf maybe like Tati in US open) but i dunno about the AO 07. Her results now are very well...poor. She's very much a confidence player I feel - which can be bad if you hit a rough patch (her game has gone downhill since that fedcup match against Kim) and at the same time can be very misleading. The break could do her good but she's really going to have to sort some stuff out and pull herself together.

Makiri can win a slam if she likes, but NOT instead of Maria. :devil:

She can have the French Open 2007.... provided Maria gets the other three.

A first for Makiri, FurryKitten. Big Masha should win several grand slam singles titles. While Little Masha will likely never make a grand slam semifinal let alone a final unless she puts it all together physically, mentally and has a top coach to work with.

And FK it's Makiri not Mikiri. ;) I created the nickname so it must be spelled correctly. :p Thanks.

Personally, I want Maria Sharapova to win every Grand Slam tournament she enters. My wishes for her are mythical, 10 Wimbledons and 12 Australian Opens and 8 French Opens, and surprisingly, I don't know what US Open record to break, because I don't know what the record is :D

I want her to win 4 Olympic gold medals, which would mean playing well into old age.

Chances are those wishes won't happen because there's just too much depth in the tour now, and players rarely play beyond 30 and stay at the top at the same time.

I have no wishes for Maria Kirilenko as a player of Grand Slam tournaments. And I don't think she will be winning any championships yet. I don't think Kirilenko has enough tools and tricks just yet.

Of course, if she wins in Melbourne next January, hooray.

:lol: I'm quite lost too. I think the attention on Kirilenko (at least by Sharapova fans) started because Kirilenko was Masha's good friend and doubles partner. People saw her as Masha's sidekick. or part of The Maria team if you will. Then of course you have her looks. Lookswise as well both Marias fit together - tall blonde Russian tennis players who were supposedly the best of friends on tour (I dont think it is much the case now btw). Then the appreciation for her grew. Anywaaaaaay....


I still don't understand why this thread was posted in maria sharapova's board :confused:

:lol: yeah very random and well odd and obviously for me irrelevant but then there are people in here who support both and well if you have things in common with others, things like this come about. i know if i had people who mainly supported both marat and maria...i'd also ask them something like "at the AO, 3 slams for marat or 3 slams for maria?" :lol: :D

Well I didn't say she was likeable because of only those things, did I? I didn't even talk about likeability. I said I thought the attention on her grew from that. I may be wrong but there are lots of Maria&Maria lovers here, and I'm just trying to understand it I guess.

but since this thread also involved Maria S its ok here isnt it? :p

Hmmm....see if i make an exact same thread but replaced Kirilenko with someone like say Vaidisova, it should also be okay then because it involves Maria S. right?...;) :p

Not to be picky but the point wasn't whether the thread being here is okay per se. It's just a little random and odd (i don't know how to explain it really) all things considering (including being on Sharapova's forum).

But anyway, no big deal...just stating what's on my mind and agreeing with johnoo's post. ;)

Also MK made a bit of a mark in 2002-2004 around the same time MS did so that also has a bit to do with it.

:lol: I'm quite lost too. I think the attention on Kirilenko (at least by Sharapova fans) started because Kirilenko was Masha's good friend and doubles partner. People saw her as Masha's sidekick. or part of The Maria team if you will. Then of course you have her looks. Lookswise as well both Marias fit together - tall blonde Russian tennis players who were supposedly the best of friends on tour (I dont think it is much the case now btw). Then the appreciation for her grew. Anywaaaaaay....




:lol: yeah very random and well odd and obviously for me irrelevant but then there are people in here who support both and well if you have things in common with others, things like this come about. i know if i had people who mainly supported both marat and maria...i'd also ask them something like "at the AO, 3 slams for marat or 3 slams for maria?" :lol: :D

oh and in case someone cares, i'm torn. :awww: i admit it is a hard decision. ;)

Well, with Marat, we wouldn't have that problem because there is no chance they would be in the same draws. ;) But I understand what you're talking about. :lol:

Who's that girl in your avatar? She looks hot. (OK , I know it's Ana Ivanovic. Just kidding.)

I've already grown used to Maria K. being part of the Sharapova column. And lately, Andy Roddick, too, although I will never get used to that.

I think Maria S. played a big part in it because a copule of years back, in her interviews, she would say she's friends with Maria Kirilenko. (And we also knew back then that unlike the other Russians on the tour, Vera Zvonareva has no problems with Maria S's Russianness, so we tend to like Vera, too.) Maria S. is manipulating us :D

Ok the discussion about the reasons for this thread to be here is easy fixed...

The guy who started this thread (sorry don't know your name, but I think its Pete) just change the thread title to make this thread a general one our other faves... Thus making the off topic for general off topic from tennis and this one based around all of our faves so we can discuss them without an issue & keep talking about the adorable Makiri as well! ;)

Personally my choice is that Masha won't win any more slams.

Call the fucking cops, WTAWorld's biggest psychopath has invaded Maria's forum! :eek: :scared:

Kirilenko is easy to like coz not only is she damn hot and cute at the same time (hard to do) but she has such a beautiful game to watch and great strokes... As much as I love Masha, she hasn't got a pretty game at all, Makiri however does & there is A LOT of potential there just waiting to be unlocked! ;)

hmmm lets see a beautiful game that wins nowt or a ugly game that wins grand slams and tier 1's,if you wanna look at hot and cute girls well this is the internet and believe me (I've looked;) ) theres plenty hotter than both by a mile.

I'm sorry I refuse to believe that anyone is hotter then MK! :p
I may be in denial, but its a good place to be! :angel:

I forgot to add before that initially I did support Makiri simply to win a match coz she was Masha's friend but i wasn't an actual fan till I saw her hit a ball for like 5 mins & then I was hooked...

Jakim, Masha's drive volleys & looping forehand is :hearts: :drool: :inlove: and she is great to watch but overall I don't find her strokes beautiful, doesn't mean I like her any less, its just a different game & style!

I've gotta say I wish her well but I have seen and captured her recent matches and she has been awful,its kinda sad to see but I don't see a great future for her,just no one big shot no super speed and no strong mental attitude,nigel sears is not a good coach for her IMO.

You are totally right Katie, MK is the number 1 for hotness! :hearts:
She's beautiful to watch in every way :)

ok lets compare two of your favs and this is a personal opinion;) ,if I had a choice beteen Maria K and Ana Ivanovic beauty wise I would go for Ana and her beautiful eyes and looking at her today at linz she looks in great shape bodywise,tennis wise Ana has big weapons and I can see her going far tennis wise.

I really like her game especially the hook, unorthadox forehand i think it looks awesome when its in full flight and then there is her perfect backhand which just gets awesome rotation and that serve.

You got me there :p
I see Ana & Makiri equal when it comes to the hotness factor, I can't choose between those two but no one is above them! ;)

I agree that Nigel is wrong for her... He couldn't fix Daniela's mental game so he has no hope fixing MK's, I hope she realises it soon!
