Glad she got a WC.

Theres some tricky players in qualies but well she's gotta beat them if she wants to get her ranking back up to where it belongs. And playing Jankovic would be interesting.

VIKA?

Yay, she got a WC:bounce:

I am not really happy with the draw. As Nikkie said theres some tricy players in qualis so...:scared: good luck Maria:angel:

SOA_MC

Maria doesn't have a good record against Jankovic :unsure:

And she is not exactly blazing through players ranked in the 200's :tape:

Nikkiri
Aug 8th, 2009, 06:23 PM
Its not like Jankovic is having her best year. And she's pushed her before and won against her in San Diego. Never hurts to try and be positive every now and then. She is slowly starting to pick it up, a set lost to a q last week big deal.

DAVAJ MKirilenko
Aug 8th, 2009, 07:06 PM
There are players higher ranked than Maria in qualies, so even the first round can be tough.

It's kinda the right time to play Jankovic. If she gets there she really has a chance.

Maybe Maria is playing each day now if she wins today. I just hope she would skip doubles some time.

Interesting draw, it could have been worse, I hope that she'll win at least 1 match and then who knows:p

Maria can get to 3rd round with this draw!
Qualifier might be tricky, some strong players in that qualy tourney
But if she wins then JJ is very beatable right now!
JJ is at an all time low and Maria is playing better...and with hopefully a convincing win in round 1, she can take JJ out!! :yeah:

Round 3 will most likely be v Vika...my most hated bitch!
It would kill me to see Maria lose to that immature, angry, ugly, childish angry bitch who is a disease on the sport!!!

A qualifier is better than a seeded player right off the bat. ;)
I believe Maria will win her first round match again, that will be 5 tournaments in a row she hasn't lost in the 1st round. Pretty good news I would say. Hopefully I won't have jinxed her. :lol:

And I believe she can take down JJ too. :armed:

Tough draw for Maria. :( But if Maria wants to make it back up to around #30 or so, she needs to be beating players like Shvedova. Otherwise that task becomes much more difficult.

Please win your 1st round singles match Maria. :)

Maybe Shvedova was really bad today, but it looks like nice serving from Maria.
4 aces and no DF's.
Still wasted many BP's. I guess Yaro had only 1 or 2 games without BP's.

Well done girl!! Keeps it up! You're going the right way and let's continue it.

Yeah,she's improving, now, she's winning one match every tournament which was really unusual at the beginning of the year.

Thats exactly it! A couple of months ago, she was losing these kind of matches somehow. Things looked so bad for her.

But now thats a good solid 1st round win, and if she had taken some of those BP chances in 1st set it would have been even easier. :) But it couldn't be a Maria match without some craziness and added drama :lol:

JJ next...well this is a chance to actually get noticed again and post a win v a so called "top player"
JJ is really off form right now, so if Maria plays at her best then she could very well win this match.

Best of luck Maria :yeah: :bigclap:

Not sure how fresh Maria was today, but again she got her chances.
The 6-4 in the TB and a break ahead in the 2nd set.

Where was her serve today? No aces, 6 DF's and a really low %.
At least she won most of the BP's today.

One of the players I like the most, lost against the player I DISLIKE the most.

Well she did have her calf taped yesterday plus her usual knee tape. I guess it can't be too easy to serve like that.

I know its hard to see them after such a match but theres so many positives lately and she will get there eventually. Gotta keep the faith.

Let her finally draw a seed that she can beat.
Dementieva in Round 1 Eastbourne.
Wozniacki Round 2 Wimbledon
Pavlyuchenkova Round 2 Bastad, that was a good opportunity and she took it.
Wozniacki QF Bastad
Stanford was already hard draw in round 1 but beat Chakvetadze
Stanford Round 2 Dementieva
LA Round 2 Stosur. Not a really high seed but in great form and made eventually the final
Cincinnati Round 2 Jankovic

Except for Stosur, Maria lost only to top 10 players. All the other matches she won.
Please let her get a nicer draw in Toronto and not only for the first round.

Maria needs to sort her serve out. Something has gone quite wrong - otherwise there's been a lot of improvement in her game of late.

Cause she can make it far in doubles. If she made the final in singles she would have the same problem.
