Hopefully Maria will have a good run here.

Good luck! You can do it!

I don't think thats true because when she was playing well we also wished her good luck.. we just need to have faith she will start winning again SOON lol..

Maybe we should't wish her good luck, because always when we wish her good luck it brings her bad luck :P

Krzysiu.
Mar 25th, 2008, 05:10 PM
Wait! Maria hasn't even gone to this 3rd rnd. After beating Morigami (6-1 6-1 in Aussie!) she should be mental stronger.

Then even Justine who is fresh (without many tourneys this year) wouldn't be hurdle not to pass.

We support you bella Maria! Time to prove your talent. So far you play in four tournaments after Aussie, playing five matches, four of them losing. Only one promotion to 2nd rnd. Now the second, without play. You've got chance. Don't trash it.

Kirilenko_Kamp
Mar 25th, 2008, 05:30 PM
I hope you're right spycimir.;) Physically, there shouldn't be any problem unless her knee acts up again.:eek: It's just the mental hurdle she needs to leap over. C'mon Makiri! Bring your A game and let's show everybody the REAL talent you possess!:devil:

Krzysiu.
Mar 25th, 2008, 06:20 PM
Don't remind us about that injury :(. I would stroke her knee for hours to Maria could play well. Unlikely, it's not knee to cause her the biggest problems on court...

Krzysiu.
Mar 26th, 2008, 08:29 PM
Sara Errani, Maria's peer from Bologna will be her rival in 2nd rnd of Miami tournament.

Italian WTA #72 defeated today favourited Akiko Morigami 6-2 3-6 6-4.

Errani is definitely beatable. I just hope Maria doesn't take a big lead only to squander it all in the later stages of the match. I don't think I can take any more of those. :unsure:

What a disappointing loss for Makiri. :sad: She worked so hard to come back from down 3-5, but it was all for nothing as she clearly had nothing left in the tank in the tiebreaker. I don`t know what else to say other than this frustrating slump sadly continues. :sad:

Natash.
Mar 28th, 2008, 07:49 PM
I have no idea what the hell happened. :o But out of her losses this year, this is by far the most annoying. If she's still injured, she shouldn't have played and dented a bigger hole in her confidence. If she wasn't, then Van Harpen has a lot more work to do.

Another slump. :o

Another slump. :o

Is van Harpen her only coach? The only one who can sort it out is Maria. Makiri fans, including me, have looked for reasons for her repeated dismal performances. She needed a good coach or its the Adidas sponsorship, the glamour girl thing and so on.

For a player of her rank, she has one of the worst win loss records on the tour 173-122.

Good juniors dont always make good seniors, and strangely enough Agnes Szavay was was nominated best Young Player of 2007. As was Makiri back in 2005? Agnes is not doing to well this year either.

I would love to say I see a light at the end of the tunnel for Maria, but I dont.

Eventhough Makiri lost the match...:sad: I have to admire her grit and tenacity in coming back in the 2nd set and forcing a tiebreaker in the 3rd. She could've easily given up and folded in straight sets, but she forced it to a 3 setter instead. Yes, it's terrible that the slump continues, but we might have seen a little glimmer of hope with what she did in the 2nd & 3rd set if there's anything positive to take out of this match.

Maria's career is sliding the wrong way. Her tennis since the 2008 Australian Open has been terrible and she has to be crushed by this. :bigcry: I hope Masha finds some happiness somewhere in her life and that happiness helps lift her wilting game from her career low depths. But I have my doubts that Maria will be able to change after being on the WTA Tour for 5 years. :(
