Here is the main draw :

Justine Henin BEL [1] has a BYE
[Q] vs Vera Zvonareva RUS
[Q] vs Shahar Peer ISR
Dinara Safina RUS vs Daniela Hantuchova SVK [7]

Jelena Janković SRB [3] has a BYE
Nicole Vaidisova CZE vs Katarina Srebotnik SLO
Alona Bondarenko UKR vs Timea Bacsinszky SUI [WC]
Marion Bartoli FRA vs Amelie Mauresmo FRA [8]

Ana Ivanović SRB [5] vs [Q]
Sania Mirza IND vs Michaella Krajicek NED [WC]
Maria Kirilenko [WC] vs Tatiana Golovin FRA
Maria Sharapova RUS [4] has a BYE

Serena Williams USA [6] vs Patty Schnyder SUI
Elena Dementieva RUS vs Francesca Schiavone ITA
Sybille Bammer AUT vs [Q]
Svetlana Kuznetsova RUS [2] has a BYE

There isn't an easy draw but Maria Sharapova is not in a great shape so if she can win against Golovin everything is possible.

I don't think many believe she can beat Tati but it's really not impossible. Good luck Maria just please play the best you can. All my faves in the same section :(

Makiri should be well rested by now since she had early exits in the two recent tourneys (Kremlin Cup & Japan). Her batteries should be fully recharged and I think she's eager to prove that the finals in Kolkata & Hansol weren't flukes. If Makiri can keep her winning form in the aforementioned tourneys, she's got a winning chance against Tati. A Big Masha vs. Little Masha match would be greatly anticipated! Good luck Makiri! Go for your shots, play each point as a match point, NEVER accept defeat, and FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Very interesting first round matchup for Makiri against Tati. I hope that she`ll regain the good form she showed over in Asia recently.

No reason why she can't beat Golovin. Should be a close match.

I hope the court is faster than the one in Moscow. Msha will prefer that.

If she's able to beat Tati, Ana Ivanovic awaits since Sharapova withdrew. Good luck Masha

It's very disappointing to see Masha lose 4 matches in a row. However Golovin has had some good results of late, so I'm not going overboard on her.

I followed the match and the scores suggested she played better as the match went on. She really needs to start matches all guns blazing. It's no good finding your feet in the 2nd set against a top player.

This sucks! Makiri don't start reverting back to your losing ways! You've worked so hard in regaining your winning form. Don't be passive and resigned with what you've accomplished so far in Kolkata and Hansol. Continue to strive to improve your recent good form and success! There are still many singles titles to be won by YOU Makiri!!!

Yeah indeed.. It's damn dissapointed! :sad:
Although Golovin is a tough opponent, I must say.. But if she was into that winning form, she might have won that match..
Hope she'll do better next time :)

Maybe I have underestimated Golovin in the past. She is definitely moving forward.

Still, Masha has played a lot of tournaments this year and all the doubles aswell, maybe she is tired and needs a good rest.

That's a dissapointing result for Maria because Golovin is beatable even though she's a better tennis player than Maria is. When Masha plays the tougher competition she folds up and loses so she needs to schedule alot of soft tournaments next year so she cn have a good year. This current 4 match losing streak taints the stretch of good tennis Masha played over the summer and into the fall. Now she's in a losing rut again. And there's no need for Maria to play every week like she has been lately. She needs to totally get away from tennis for a week and then come back refreshed so she she can be focused enough to play good tennis in her last couple of tournaments of the year.

I think Maria is desperate to improve her ranking and has been playing lots of tournaments to get back to where she should be - in the top 20. She should be almost guaranteed a seeding in Australia now and that would be a fine turnaround in the 2nd half of the season. She really needs to improve her game on clay and grass (she should be a good grasscourt player) and there are many opportunities to pick up points in the 1st half of next season. I think she could be pushing top 16 after Wimbledon 2008, if she plays her best tennis.
