Why mention the photoshoot? her losing has nothing to do with that.

She says her knee is fine a week after she had to withdraw from a match, I don't believe her.. if her knee is fine then yeah good draw and she could win a few matches, all the best Maria. :yeah:

^^:lol: at that signature

Inflammation can be dealt with pretty quickly with anti-inflammatory drugs. However, if the underlying cause is not taken care of, there's a fair chance it will come back sooner than later.

Anyway, that's a nice draw. Hopefully she'll be healthy enough to make the most of it.

Good luck Maria! :)

It's a good draw for Maria. She should beat Gallovits and Szavay is a winnable match. If the knee is enough of a problem to cause her to lose to Gallovits, then why play at all?

Given her knee problems, I think Maria should ease off on playing both singles and doubles at tournaments.

Good luck Maria. :)

Argh...Maria broken to start off the match after having a game point at 40-30. :( Maria only got 50% of her 1st serves in and won 1/4 points on her 1st serve. :(

Not a good start for Maria as Gallovits holds for 2-0 1st set despite only getting 32% of her 1st serves in.

Maria beat Gallovits in straight sets last year on clay. Maybe Maria needs to pretend that this is clay she's playing on. :p

Oh Maria. :sad: She shouldn't have let Gallovits hold so many times in the third set. Gallovits doesn't have a very strong serve, and in the end serving second the pressure was too much, just like the second set.

Maria won 68% of points on her serve in the 3rd set and Gallovits 64%. :( Maria actually won more points than Gallovits : 111 to 107. :rolleyes:

Poor Maria,i don't know what to say:sad:.As i said,she should have won in straight sets as she was leading 4-2 in the 2nd set (if i remember well).But she choked again...

The only positive thing is that she was able to play 2.45 hrs without a 6-1 in the last set.So,her knee must be more or less okay:hug:

Yeah, Maria was holding stronger throughout most of the third set (and most of the match). Just at big pressure moments like the end of the second set, end of the third set, she succumbed to the pressure.

I thought Maria would beat Gallovits, she has a very weak serve and not a lot of power on any shot. But... at least Maria doesn't seem to be injured very much.

6-3 4-2 lead and still lost.
Didn't face a BP in the third set untill she lost the last game.
She had 3 chances to break earlier in the set.

Common it's just Gallovits. When is she finally starting to get some results?

She'll get it together eventually. It's hard to build off nothing. 1 match won this year plus all the unlucky shit she's had. If she could have won the match today that could have been the turn around she needed, now its just gonna have to come somewhere else. I still believe in her.

Droolv
Mar 13th, 2009, 07:35 AM
Yes I agree with Nikkie, Maria come though. The match could have gone either way today but Maria's lack of confidence and self-belief probably let her down. She'll get there, she justs needs a couple of wins in one tournament and then 2009 will start. Hang in there Maria, I (like Nikkie) still believe. Oh and a good win in doubles today over a dangerous pairing. Good luck in the next round! :)

Labamba
Mar 13th, 2009, 12:04 PM
gutted about the loss :sobbing: she really should have won :hug:

but on a more positive side, the knee held up a grueling match (health comes first) and judging from the stats, she didn't play all that badly

plus a convincing win in the doubles :yeah:

From someone at the match: They said she played really well and was hitting the ball hard. There was a point at 4-4 3rd set there was a long rally and Gallovits's ball tapped the net and just dropped over into Maria's court. She said that point pretty much decided the match.

Of course, it's always annoying to see Maria lose this kind of match, especially against someone like Gallovits, who got double-bageled by Zvonareva at this year's AO.

One thing about Maria is that she always goes down fighting. She's had an unlucky start with illness and the knee injury so it's understandable she's lacking confidence. I have faith she'll get it back and win a couple of titles this year. Hope that's not a jinx...:tape: :lol:

Awesome job girls!!!

I was watching Igor's match and i can't believe that he has lost,he deserved 100 times more to win this match than Ljubicic(he missed 5 MP and 14 BP:sad:)

Igor :( omg just awful so many chances wasted, Umpire didn't help either, what a moron. :rolleyes:. This loss is gonna hurt.. but well least he has Maria to comfort him. :sobbing:

Honnestly,i admire Igor for not having destroyed 5 rackets:rolleyes: .He should have won in straight sets,Ljubicic only scored points with his serve during the 1st 2 sets...

And at the end,this stupid umpire never overruled:mad:.I don't know what do you think but it seems that Igor saw the ball out at one of his MP (4th or 5th) but he was too disgusted to protest.

Maria will have to take care of him and i hope he'll come back even stronger next week:fiery:

I always find it hard to feel sorry for Igor :lol: He had some problems with the Umpire during the match I saw at Wimbledon. Went on to win that one though.

This is not a joke. She needs to realize that she's going in the wrong direction. Maybe a sport psychologist can help.
It's too late. I agree with you that Maria should work with a sports psychologist. But she won't. Masha's career patterns of inconsistency and underachieving are set and cannot be broken without professional intervention. There is no way Maria should lose to the players she does week in and week out. Just out of curiosity what is Kirilenko's won/loss record this year? I'm sure it's very bad.

I came to check out Maria's Indian Wells thread today and when I saw that posts were made in here today I was hoping Maria was still in the singles draw. But I could tell at first glance today's posts were about her doubles. Whoopee! :rolleyes:

Kirinetta's match was meant to start 45 mintues ago, but hasn't. :tape:

Maybe Azarenka and Zvonareva have withdrawed since they're both in the singles semifinal? :unsure:

Yeah it's been moved.

Ivanovic and Bammer were scheduled to play the third match of the day on the stadium court. The doubles match between Maria Kirilenko/Flavia Pennetta and Victoria Azarenka/Vera Zvonareva has been moved to the main court in its place.

Lost the first set in a TB, should have won it. Flavia served for it and was broken to love.

It will be tough to come back now.The 1st set was too important :(

Nikkiri
Mar 19th, 2009, 11:57 PM
Yeah 1st was important, they're gone now.

From what I've read from someone at the match it's Flavia who was the weak link in the end.

They've lost 7-6 6-1 but well,really great tournament for Kirinetta and Maria will probably have her best ranking in doubles next week,so we can't blame them :).
