I like Lena V., but considering their current form (especially on clay), I fully expect Maria to win this one - as long as she's not too exhausted from this week.

I can't believe that Maria has won this match:eek::worship:

I think that when she faced 3MP in a row yesterday,she thought that it was over for her in Berlin.But she fought for every point,she managed to win this 2nd set yesterday,and today,she showed that the former Masha who lost matches that she had to win is forgotten.Now,the new Masha wins big fights and is able to make amazing comebacks like this one against Elena.

Petrova has played 3.30 hrs yesterday and will play doubles today (like Maria),so Maria will have a great chance tomorrow!!

She needs to be routining players who are ranked well below her. Hopefully she'll play better against Petrova.

Yeah like Nikkie said she played the Warsaw final on Sunday. It was a bit unfortunate Medina Garrigues and Dulko got an extra rest day and Maria didn't but that's how it goes sometimes. She must be feeling worn out atm :awww:

I don't think so. She plays tennis every day and the problem might be only the places she goes over the world. Now it's not big problem cuz European courts are not very far from each other.

Before Estoril she wasn't going deep in tournaments in either singles or doubles, she's probably just enjoying winning so much that she wants to keep playing as much as she can while it continues. She wouldn't be playing so much if she didn't feel up to it.

I think she is playing too many matches. What was the point of the exhibition? She doesn't get any ranking points. What with all the doubles aswell, it's just ridiculous. Of that I have no doubt.

Is it the money or what?

You probably follow her game much more closely than me, so I guess you have good reason to say that she is playing too much.

Still, I can think of a number of ways that playing doubles could benefit Maria, depending on her approach to the game, of course.

Consider, for example, that she really enjoys playing tennis together with other people?

And (I know this is a really bad comparison, but still) if I remember correctly, a guy like John McEnroe (a childhood hero of mine :p) treated playing doubles as practice. Of course he wasn't into rigorous physical exercise at all. And playing doubles was probably relevant for his serve-and-volley game. My point was his non-obvious approach to playing doubles.

Ahh, wonderful player he was at his best. Can't say he :shout:scored as high on personality though as Maria :angel:

As to why she played in Warszawa, I wouldn't know. But I'm sure our Polish friend, who must have a really sore index finger now after taking so many photos, was quite happy that she did.
And I'm a bit happy for him, too. :)

In securing her biggest win of the year, the 42nd-ranked Kirilenko attacked the Serb from the opening ball, crushing her backhand, returning her serves and charging the net at every opportunity.

What's happening with the doubles? The organisers don't seem to be helping her with the schedule.

Maria had a purple patch last year, but she couldn't maintain it. I would not say I'm that happy with her form. She has only beaten 1 good player recently and that is someone in a slump. Today will give us a better idea of where she is.

Nikkiri
May 8th, 2008, 10:59 AM
Good luck Maria. :) Show everyone what you're capable of.

And just cause she hasn't beaten many "good" players yet doesn't mean her form isn't good. She's been playing well, winning matches and fighting for her points. It's all positive I'd say and something to be pleased with.

Yes, but still there is a difference between playing a full tournament and constant moving from one place to another after loosing in 1st round. I don't even want to count how many 1st round matches she lost last year. The same story has occurred this year 4 times already :/
About today's game... she looked so tired, didnt work on her legs well, was fireing unpatient shots. No way she could have won this game.

Uh last year, Maria could only win one match on clay. This year, she has only lost one match. Give her a break. :shrug: She has ALWAYS been a streaky player. The important thing is she has been able to win matches against decent opponents when things got tight.

She just didn't play well at all today. She was at Warsaw, played 4 matches and then has a crap scheduling with singles and doubles on the same day yesterday and the day before.

Some band on left thigh, some problems with right arm. I hope everything's gonna be alright. As always.

She's playing too much. She needs rest.

Maria is playing well but must avoid playing too much tennis wearing down her fragile body. I hope she takes some time off. Beating Jankovic on red clay was always going to be hard for Masha so it's not a bad loss at all.

It's understandable she's playing a lot right I'm sure she's really enjoying her tennis after having such a bad run before Estoril. But with RG coming up maybe she'll give doubles a miss in Rome. If not lets hope for better scheduling.

Doubles to throw out in Roma.

Kick out doubles at Roland Garros aswell. She has only one win to defend there and at Wimbledon. This is a chance to get some ranking points boost! If Igor is looking for a partner, I reckon he should try someone like Tursanov instead.

I was expecting her to give Jankovic more of a fight. She didn't play well and I knew she would net that overhead on match point. :o

I hope she's not too disheartened by this loss and continues playing well for the remainder of the clay season.
