For those who haven't seen the news on Masha's website, you can send her letter or gifts. Here is the news :

Your french favorite webmaster of Maria Kirilenko official website will meet Maria in Roland-Garros at the end of this month. If you want to let her a letter, a gift or if you want an autographed picture, just send your mail to:

Damien MERCEREAU
1 rue Jean Jaures
95220 Herblay
FRANCE

For all the autographed picture requests, thank you to let:
- The name you want that Maria write with her autograph
- An envelope with your address on it


I had thought about sending her a new knee but my left knee is as destroyed as hers:lol: .So guys,what will you send her if you send her something?

Igor was supposed to play the world team cup this week but he was replaced by Vovk yesterday,so it doesn't look very good for next week:rolleyes:.I'm not very lucky with my faves, first Kneekiri, then Kneevanovic and now Ribgor:o .If Caro keeps playing every week,she'll join my dream team:hearts:

Maria is now number 47 in the world behind Mattek:lol::help:

Nikkiri

47 wow :o

Well nows the time to pick up some points only made the 2nd round in RG last year then didn't win a match at all on grass. But with her rankings so low the chances of getting favorable draws are not good.

Igor lost against Del Potro 6-3 7-6. Even though he lost,that's positive for Roland Garros, at least,it seems that he'll play there :).

On Maria's website,i see that some people are really really really really... positive:lol:

i agree with Anton
and i can only repeat his words :
“hopefully 2008 picture will be with trophy in her hands^^” (i think he meant 2009)


If not with cup, then with a quarter-final It’s also very good


Maria will be the next Roland Garros Champion! And now we sing:
You are the champion - Maria
And you’ll keep on fighting - till the end -
You are the champion - You are the champion
No time for losers
‘Cause you are the champion - of Roland Garros

:worship:

I'd say,win 2 matches and it will be a good tournament:tape:

Ok, 1 match against a french WC and then she wins the 2nd round because of the injury of her opponent:lol:. It will all depend of the draw and as Maria isn't the luckiest girl in the world,i'm pretty scared.

Thanks for the report of Igor's match, doesn't look good too but 6-3 7-6 against a good player like Del Potro is positive especially if he couldn't serve well:sad:

Nikkiri
May 21st, 2009, 04:22 PM
Del Potro played pretty awful though :rolls:

kirivanovic
May 21st, 2009, 04:38 PM
1st serve : 88% for Igor :confused: and 0 ace. Yeah, he probably served low 1st serves because he still can't serve well.Let's hope a good draw for him too though.

Not a bad looking singles draw for Makiri. The first round match against Olivia Rogowska looks winnable. If Makiri wins that match, then the second round is a mystery with the status of Vera Z`s availability in the air. I really hope that Makiri can give a good showing in Roland Garros. It`s time for her turn things around.

Dark-horse nation

Sabine Lisicki: Big-serving German has real game and has already beaten Venus on clay this spring. You just wish she were healthier.

Maria Kirilenko: Still finding her game, but always a fun player to watch. :worship:

Maria Sharapova: French is the one Slam she's never won. In full health, she would be a threat. But not so soon after her return from "shoulder hell." On the plus side, nice to have her back in the cast.

Yanina Wickmayer: Carrying on the rich tradition of Belgian tennis.

Something positive ;)

What a tough first round match for Makiri and Flavia. :eek: However they do have the advantage of playing more matches together than Caroline and Sorana. Plus i must add that this will obviously be a very hot match with four of the most loveliest players on the tour. :hearts: However Makiri has her first round singles match tomorrow. If she can finally show some good form, then i like her chances. I hope that Makiri will do well tomorrow.

It'll take some serious dedication on Maria's part to dig herself out of this hole she has sunk into this year. :help:

I'm anxious to see how things will develop now. I hope she doesn't despair and just continues on this downward spiral, but that she becomes even more bent on returning to the top ranks, whatever it takes. :armed:

Anyway, if she manages to turn things around now, I'll have all the more respect for her, too. I'm not the first to lose faith in her, but the well of optimism slowly drains away when she keeps allowing her opponents to slap her in the face like this.

She couldn't ask for an easier draw. It's a slam and also on clay.
I'm just really dissapointed about this loss and also mad.
Nr 256?? She couldn't even win a set.
1 final this year and so MANY first round losses.
I just don't know what Maria thinks, but this isn't working at all.
I'm thinking more and more that Eric was right that Maria just doesn't listen.
Ok that didn't work, but Maria really needs someone like him.
The coaching she has now won't bring her a thing. I also don't like it that she likes doubles so much.
I just want her to do well in singles. It's hard to take all these losses.
Out of top 50 after RG, while she was top 20 not that long ago.
She can do so much better!
This just feels like it's a repeat of the end of 2006 and the year 2007. That she even lost to Ozegovic.

COMMON Maria, can you finally wake up?!?

She needs a coach, i mean, a real coach, not a coach who is only able to teach children how to play in a spanish academy.

That's even worse than when she was with Van Harpen, so she has to do something to change it because now she'll have to play the qualies in good tournaments.

Her knee musn't help her of course...

I don't know if he knew about Maria's result but he was relieved to have won this hard battle. I think that he wasn't sure about his rib/abdominal muscles, so he showed his emotions pumping his fist.

His next match is against Vassalo Arguello, as he can lose against everyone,i won't say nothing.

Hah. Wasn't Maria once asked who she thought was the 3 hottest player on the ATP? From memory I think Safin was in there, but number 1 was Andreev (of course). Don't think poor Lapentti got a mention.

That reminds me, Andy Murray also thinks Maria is the number 1 on the WTA.

Does anyone here know whether Kirilenko is having knee problems still? I know she's been off form and Rogowska's up and coming and her best surface is clay but seems like a fairly bad loss.
Just wondering whether to bank her and Pennetta in a few medium/long odds multis.

I don't know if he knew about Maria's result but he was relieved to have won this hard battle. I think that he wasn't sure about his rib/abdominal muscles, so he showed his emotions pumping his fist.

His next match is against Vassalo Arguello, as he can lose against everyone,i won't say nothing.

He won in 5 again :sobbing:

He won in 5 again :sobbing:

What a match :hearts:. According to the commentator, he finished the match lying on the floor. I don't know if the stats are right but he made 90 winners for 43 UE...:eek: . Considering the fact that he's injured, we can say that it's a good tournament for him even if he loses against Del Potro.

What a day for my (our:lol:) faves with Igor, Sori, Caro, Nole and Kirinetta who will play Groenefeld/ Schnyder on the next round.

Yeah I saw the stats.. I was like that can't be right. :lol:

Good win in doubles. :) They beat Groenefeld/ Schnyder sometime this year already I think quite easy IIRC.

He should have choked a little to make 100 winners:lol:

Yeah, they beat Groenefeld/ Schnyder in Indian Wells this year 6-2 6-2 (1st round).

And Ana is on fire now :hearts:

Good stuff girls.

A good run in the doubles might just silence some of the haters who think Maria is a talentless prima-donna.

Tough loss for Makiri and Flavia today. :sad: I was hoping that they could pull out the win, but instead their stay in Roland Garros is over with. :sad: So that concludes the clay court season for Makiri, which was a big disappointment for her. Hopefully she can get it back in the right direction on grass.

its unfortunate that maria doesnt have the best record on grass. the past 6 years at wimby, she's always lost in the first rnd (of singles) :sobbing:

Yes, it's grass now. I hope to go to Birmingham next week. I don't know why, Maria just seems to struggle on grass.

Nikkiri

She has the game to do well on grass.. I just think she doesn't care enough about grass to do well on it. Hopefully she will try harder this grass season as she can pick up some much needed points.

Too bad for the doubles, horrible tournament once again:(


About grass, she can't do worse than last year...I don't know if she's already lost her points of Barcelona from last year but i'd advise her to win some matches if she doesn't wanna play some qualies soon:sad:

Barcelona points come off during the Brum week so she has to do well there or :unsure: :help:

I think we shouldn't expect too much until the American hard court season.
