Come On Maria!

Hopefully A Good Job!

I'm surprised Makiri is playing here instead of Beijing. She has many good happy memories there including clinching her 1st singles title. The people of Beijing embraced & loved her over there not to mention. I guess Makiri and coach Nick Van Harpen have something up their sleeve. Maybe strategize a way to get her ranking back up where it supposed to be. Hopefully, Makiri has continued to improve on her form and possibly grab her 2nd singles title. Wouldn't that be sweet?!? Good luck Makiri in Kolkata! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Not a bad looking draw for Makiri. If she can continue her good play that she has shown lately, then i can see her at least reaching the semifinals where hopefully she`ll meet up with Dani. In fact i really think that she can win the tournament.

Sep 15th, 2007, 08:31 PM
nice starters for masha ;)

now make good use of the draw :hug:

Sep 16th, 2007, 03:45 PM

Seeds Enjoy Themselves On Day 1 In Kolkata

KOLKATA, India - Day 1 of this year's Sunfeast Open saw few surprises at the $175,000, Tier III event as both seeds in action advanced into the second round with consummate ease.

After a disappointing first half of the season, this week's No.4 seed, Maria Kirilenko, came into her own during the North American hardcourt swing, reaching back-to-back quarterfinals in San Diego and Los Angeles. On Monday the 20-year-old Muscovite made her Kolkata debut and she needed little more than an hour to defeat American qualifier Neha Uberoi, 62 62.

Next up for Kirilenko will be an encounter with compatriot Ekaterina Ivanova, who became the first player to reach the second round when she won the battle of the qualifiers against Great Britain's Naomi Cavaday, 63 26 62

Congrats Makiri on a convincing 1st round win! Good luck in your 2nd round match against Ivanova. FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Sep 19th, 2007, 12:25 PM
Well Bartoli lost so that has to be good news. I have a special feeling about this one..........

Still should be a reminder to Masha that you can't expect any easy matches.

Sep 20th, 2007, 08:33 PM
So far Maria's doing good. But she only face weak opponents. Lets see how well she does against a quality opponent like Penella.

Sep 20th, 2007, 08:56 PM
Good luck maria again Flavia!

Good luck Makiri with your match against Pennetta. We know you can do it! YOU CAN BEAT HER! Give everything you got in your heart, soul, and mind on the court Makiri! Leave nothing to chance. If you fall behind, fight with all your might! NEVER give up! NEVER accept defeat! Fight for every point, go for your shots, treat every point as a match point, and FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

An article on Maria


Sep 21st, 2007, 10:48 AM
This will be a tough one. Pennetta was ranked top 20 not long ago. Masha's form is okay, but not IMO as good as during the summer.

I hope she is not burning out after all the tournaments she has played.

Also, isn't it amazing that Masha still has a negative win/loss ratio this year?

Sep 21st, 2007, 11:44 AM
good luck maria! you can do it! flavia is not playing an amazing tennis this year...take your chance!

Sep 21st, 2007, 02:27 PM
Good luck against Flavia lil' Masha :bounce:

Another outstanding showing from Makiri. :clap2: What more is there to be said other than she has looked so much better on the court lately.

Sep 21st, 2007, 11:23 PM
Forget about your past record against Dani. This is the PRESENT! It's YOUR TIME to shine Makiri! Reaching the Kolkata Finals is just upon the horizon for you Makiri! Your 2nd singles title is within your grasp! Take it Makiri! Dani is just another mere mortal on the tennis court that you can beat Makiri. Dani can be broken down both mentally and physically on the court. Make Dani RUN sideline to sideline, up at the net, and back on the baseline. Pounce on every weak reply, take the initiative, and take control of the point as early as possible Makiri! Again, fight for every point, treat every point as a match point, and go for your shots! NEVER accept defeat! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! 1-2-3 DOMINATE!!!

Good comeback win for Maria over Hantuchova. :) Especially since she was 0-3 against Daniela before todays match. I hope Makiri has enough energy left for the final after this tough semifinal win so she can win her second title.

Another very good win for Makiri. :clap2: I really love how she bounced back after losing the first set and convincingly won the last two. Now she`s in her first final in nearly a couple of years. This is a great opportunity that she needs to take full advantage of.

This is a great opportunity that she needs to take full advantage of.Have you ever seen a pageant where the final two were so darned close in beauty that it was practically impossible to decide between them?Well...that's sort of how it was today in Kolkata...Daniela's amazing legs are longer and more tempting(and not as overly-skinny as her midsection)while Maria has the nicer torso and buns.From the neck up,they are BOTH in another galaxy.That means that TENNIS had to be the tiebreaker,and Makiri won this battle impressively today.Nothing against Koryttseva,but Makiri BETTER not lose to her...looks like the coaching has got our baby-doll:hearts: back on track.

Congratulations to Maria on winning her second career WTA Tour singles title. :D Makiri made the right decision polaying the Sunfeast Open instead of Bejiing which had a much tougher field. I hope Masha's confidence grows from this title and we see her best tennis in 2008. :)

Congrats Makiri on winning your 2nd career singles title! This should definitely bold well as a major confidence builder and boost in morale. I'm so PROUD of you Makiri! Much kudos must be given to coach Nick Van Harpen for turning things around into the right direction and father Yuri for allowing him coach his daughter. Makiri's probably saying to herself right now, "I'm back baby and I'm ready to UNLEASH HELL!"

Sep 23rd, 2007, 04:26 PM

I see the Match against Hantuchova and if Maria plays like this she can improve the ranking and return in a much better position, like in the past.
