Great to have her on court again. Now let's make it her best season so far!

Hope Makiri had a good christmas and is ready to go again. From memory she's got strong points to defend at ASO before a quiet couple of months.

Yeah Makiri has a lot of points to defend at the Australian Open. Hopefully she can get off to a good start in the new year in Brisbane.

Maria is seeded now, that's good:) she won't play anyone in the top 30 first round:cool:

Does anyone know if Maria is in Australia yet?

Nikkiri
Jan 2nd, 2009, 04:28 AM

They show Brisbane live here on TV all week so hopefully they will show one of Maria's matches and I will record it :D

I remember a few years ago her English was so bad, its adorable though :p

I can't believe Maria drew Sam :sad:

It sucks when your two favs draw each other so early :(

Good luck to both girls, the winner should make the quarters :awww:

Nikkiri
Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:57 AM
She couldn't ask for a worse first round.. she's more than capable of beating Stosur but Sam is gonna have the crowd behind her, other than that it is a nice section for her :tape: Good luck girl :yeah:

But if she wins she could get a nice confidence boost. :)

Good luck in 2009 Maria!! :)

But we're so much cooler than the Canadian crowd:p

The winner of this will make the QF

Nikkiri
Jan 3rd, 2009, 06:13 AM
Stosur is one of those Aussies who plays well at home right? Thats all I'm worried about :lol:

SOA_MC
Jan 3rd, 2009, 07:15 AM
Stosur is one of those Aussies who plays well at home right? Thats all I'm worried about :lol:

Oh that's how you meant it, Stosur had some good wins here in Australia but I think it's more media hype, local media talking up her wins as they do for all Aussies (See Nathan Healey:tape:) and Maria beat her in a final last year, if she beat Stosur in a final she can beat her anywhere anytime as far as I'm concerned

Tully
Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:43 AM
I don't like the first round. Stosur has very good results in Australia in the past (Gold Coast SF & F and Sydney F although it was a few years ago).Hopefully Maria has a great start and takes the crowd out of it. Also if Maria gets past that then it should open up to the QF then maybe a match with Victoria:D

DAVAJ MKirilenko
Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:08 AM
The last time she played Stosur she won the tournament.
But now playing her in Australia will be very tough.
I really hope she can make a QF here.

Davaj Maria!!

Nikkiri

Maria starts tomorrow she's first up.

Centre Court (starting at 10:30am)

Oh my, Maria is already playing tomorrow! The season really starts now.
Can't wait to see her on court again.

kirivanovic
Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:15 PM
Well,the 1st round couldn't be worse but if she wins this match,she'll have a great chance to go far in this tournament.

Anyway,10.30 am is a bit too early to begin the season:rolleyes:.

Doubles with Errani:help:

Labamba
Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:25 PM
not a very kind draw for Maria :awww:

I think Stosur is from Brisbane, the crowd will be really edging her on.

I hope whatever this injury is that it's no big deal and just a blow off because it's the start of the season.

kirivanovic
Jan 4th, 2009, 12:57 AM
I hope that she's "just" ill and not injured:sad:

In Sydney,she'll have a more difficult draw,she could have had an extra-confidence before the AO thanks to Brisbane:sad:

Nikkiri
Jan 4th, 2009, 01:00 AM
Yeah I hope its just an illness and not an injury :awww:

Not the start of the season we wanted. Maria :hug:

Kiriber
Jan 4th, 2009, 01:00 AM
Just sick works too.

This is kind of horrible.

Labamba
Jan 4th, 2009, 01:00 AM
But the eighth-seeded Kirilenko pulled out of the tournament this morning with an illness yet to be detailed by WTA Tour staff, a Brisbane International spokesman said.

oh boy, this sucks :sad: Maria :hug:

illness just before the first match of the year and so close to AO :scared:

hope it's nothing serious

Dav.
Jan 4th, 2009, 01:11 AM
Oh Maria. :sad:

SOA_MC
Jan 4th, 2009, 01:26 AM
I'm confused illness or injury

Hopefully just a 24 hour virus and Maria will be fine by tomorrow

Kiriber
Jan 4th, 2009, 01:31 AM
One source said she was sick one said injured, but I don't think there is an official reason yet.

Natash.
Jan 4th, 2009, 02:11 AM
:sobbing: Maria. :sad: I really hope your okay. This would be so unfortunate. :( Not what you deserve or need.

Nikkiri
Jan 4th, 2009, 04:02 AM
Seventh-seeded Russian Maria Kirilenko has withdrawn from the Brisbane International tennis tournament due to a virus, according to the organisers. Kirilenko, the world No.29, was due to play Australian Samantha Stosur in the opening match of the tournament but pulled out shortly before she was due on court.

Hopefully its just a 24 hour thing maybe she will still be able to play doubles.

DAVAJ MKirilenko
Jan 4th, 2009, 05:41 AM
Just a virus sounds better than an injury.
But she had a virus 5 months ago as well and that took way longer than a day.
I really hope Maria is fine. :sad:
What a start for 2009.

Droolv

Seventh seed Maria Kirilenko, pulled out due to a viral illness.

Hopefully she'll feel better soon and be okay for Sydney.

kirivanovic
Jan 4th, 2009, 01:45 PM
Well,i don't hope that she'll play doubles even if she feels better.She shouldn't take risks as she has a "virus".

One more week to wait then:crying2:

.:sk:.

What a start for 2009.

That was worse than a virus she was sick for 5 days that time, this is only a 24 hour virus I hope

Maria's official site says virus, sounds like she'll be fine for Sydney

Aww, I hope Maria gets better in the next couple of days. :( The heat and hot weather up in brissy doesnt help either.

Jan 5th, 2009, 04:12 AM
I just got over a virul infection a couple of days ago. She needs to just rest and root for andreev who i think has2 play youhzny in dubai. BTW any1 know if they gonna play mixed @ AO?

kirivanovic
Jan 6th, 2009, 12:02 PM
It seems that Maria won't play doubles because Groenefeld and King will play against Coin and Czink tomorrow...I don't know if it's a good or bad news:rolleyes:

Nikkiri
Jan 6th, 2009, 12:05 PM
Hmmm I was hoping she'd be able to play doubles it would indicate shes feeling better plus she's got a lot of points to defend at the AO she needs some match play before then. I hope she will be fine for Sydney then and that the draw is nice to her. :awww:

Nikkiri
Jan 7th, 2009, 01:24 AM
They just mentioned Maria during the Mauresmo/Coin match. She has been in bed resting and is better now and ready for next week. Something like that anyways :p

Wow,thanks! I don't know how they knew it but if Maria is ok and ready for next week,that's an awesome news!!!
