roland garros is a place where she can get precious ranking points. seems like she can play better on clay so lets all hope she gets a reasonable draw, wins some matches and gets into the top twenty as soon as possible!! :bounce:

Maria will play Marina Erakovic in the first round.

Then probably Tamira Pazcek in the 2nd (could be dangerous).

Marion Bartoli will await in the 3rd - if we dare to think so far ahead. Venus Williams next, then Jankovic.

I think it's an okay draw. Erakovic has won some titles on the ITF but she's pretty inexperienced.

Nikkiri

I'm not sure how correct this draw is. I was watching eurosport france livestream when they showed a bit of the draw on the screen and it was different.

May 23rd, 2008, 10:48 AM
Well if that's the 'real' one it's certainly different. 1st 2 rounds look OK, but now it's Safina in the 3rd round instead of Bartoli and a potential match with Masha S after that.

On balance I preferred the old draw!

only_one_maria
May 23rd, 2008, 10:52 AM
This is because of Hantuchova's withdrawl. So all the seedings below her move one place in the draw. Maria takes over Bammer's position.

But if they knew Hantuchova had withdrawn yesterday, why was she in the draw?

Maria is never lucky with draws. First 2 rounds look good now, but after that it's really tough.
First of course Camerin. I guess Maria is 100% now some I'm confident she will the first match.
Top 20 will be difficult. If Schiavone wins her 1st match, then Maria needs at least a 4th round.

Just hope for a good RG.

Tough draw for Maria. Safina is in form right now and Sharapova is never an easy matchup. Maria would be the underdog in either of those matchups. The pressure wouldn't be on her. Hopefully, she'll go out and just play well.

Zumoq

Good luck at RG, Maria! :hug:

Maria also met Camerin in the 1st round at RG last year, and finished her off easily in two sets then. We'd like to see a repeat of that! (But not a repeat of what happened afterwards...)

At the start of 2008, I wouldn't say it's good to draw Chakvetadze in Round 3. She had a good 2007 and beat Maria in the last times.

I better not say that she never has easy draws, but the most are hard ones.

And guys, you already see it coming? Maria won't play today. So eventually it turned out that she has to play 3 matches a day somewhere in this week :rolleyes:

So disappointing. Those competing in the doubles should be put on first. Maria needs to have a good rest between her matches.

She isn't going to blow people off the court and even against an average opponent, the match will take quite a bit out of her. I can see her getting to the third or fourth round but not having enough energy left to compete against a top player, like what happened against Jankovic.

Maybe if Maria can eek it out for another 10 or so minutes they'll suspend play for the night....

Seriously though I don't understand stand it. How can you fall apart like that after winning the 1st set? :shrug:

Just when you think Maria might be past melting down she does it again. :( Every time she starts to make real progres in her career she has a bad slump. I hope this collapse against Jie Zheng hardly a good clay court player is not the beginningof a stretch of bad tennis like after she blew her fourth match to Daniela Hantuchova at the 2008 Australian Open. I hope this is not repeated after today's terrible loss to Zheng.

And just as things were looking a bit up... Isn't that Maria's game in a nutshell? :awww:

Unforced errors 38, winners 5 :o

Well, well, she probably would have run into a wall in the next round anyway. I'm willing to write it off as a bad day if she can get her game back on track soon.

Maria would have had a very tough match against Safina in the next round. So she probably hasn't thrown a lot of ranking points away. That's all I can say at the moment really.

What a disappoint performance from Makiri today. :sad: She really had to scratch and claw to win the first set, especially with some long games. After that things went downhill for her as she had no answer for Zhang`s resurgent play. I don`t know what else to say other than it`s another missed opportunity in a Grand Slam for Makiri. :sad: I hope that she`ll bounce in doubles with Flavia.

2 sets. Maria is still playing at RG. With Pennetta in a great form it can be a longer stay for Maria. Not that I care for doubles, but a few more match won't hurt her now.
After that, up to Barcelona!

Well I had many dreams last night, though none involving Maria.

I was so busy yesterday that I had no chance to check the result until now. Good to see Maria win, should be good for her morale after the big disappointment of thursday. We all know Szavay's had some poor results in doubles, hopefully Maria has that in mind. I think she played with Safina too in the Fed Cup?

I`m sad to see that Makiri and Flavia lost their doubles match today. :sad: I was really hoping that they would pull off the upset so that they would get to play the Bondarenko sisters in what could`ve been a very hot matchup. Hopefully we`ll get to see them team up again soon, because they worked very well together. So Makiri`s time at Roland Garros is over with. It`s time to move on for a little R&R before grass court season for her.
