Hopefully Maria reaches the QFs:awww: but I'm not really happy with the draw, but it could be worse so come on Kiri:D

Kutuzova is a big hitter but really really inconsistent, i'd be surprised if Maria lost. Peer played well the last couple of weeks, so it will be tough.

Beijing. Just if its taped up in practice means it could be bothering her a lot.

Beijing. Just if its taped up in practice means it could be bothering her a lot.

Hopefully it was only a little stinger on the top of her hand. I've had it before it lasts a few days then goes away.

And she isn't playing doubles again this week.

Hmmm...not a bad draw for Maria I think.

Good luck Maria. :)

Nikkiri

Maria's match has started. Maria starts by holding serve at 40-15

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:08 AM
If Maria wins she will play Mirza who took out Peer in 3 sets.

Protoss
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:31 AM
Maria broken for 2-3 1st set. :( Break Maria.

Come on Maria!!! You are hotter, higher ranked, older, taller, more titles, more money....and head to head 1-0.....piece of cake!

Protoss
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:39 AM
Argh...Kutuzova holds for 4-2 1st set after facing break point. :( Hold Maria.

2-5 :help: Fight Maria :tears:

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:43 AM
Maria is probably already thinking of Moscow. Whatever.

Protoss

Maria broken for 2-5 1st set. :( Fight Maria.

Nikkiri

Long break?

Protoss
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:49 AM
Long break?
Yah, it's about 7 minutes now. :scared:

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:51 AM
She should have just skipped here and went straight to Moscow.

Protoss
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:51 AM
That match has resumed after about an 8 minute delay.

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:58 AM
First set is over. IDK I just wish she would retire or something. Not like she can go far here anyways she will have to play Moscow qualies.. cause well face it she doesn't deserve a WC. Obviously isn't 100%. Can't wait till this nightmare season is over.

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:58 AM
Oh she did retire. Thank god.. now go rest.

Droolv
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:59 AM
Gah :sobbing:

Protoss
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:59 AM
Oh no. Maria retires after Kutuzova held for 6-2 1st set after facing break point. :sad: The match was 54 minutes long.

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 06:59 AM
Least she managed to finish the set. :hug:

Protoss

It's been such a tough season for Maria. :sad:

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 07:10 AM
It sure has. :sad: Right from the get go it's been awful. This nightmare is almost over then hopefully she'll have a good break and start 2010 better.

VIKA?
Oct 12th, 2009, 10:34 AM
I hope she's ok:hug:

one more tournament and this nighmare of season for her will finish.

kirivanovic
Oct 12th, 2009, 11:05 AM
I hope it's nothing serious. At least,if she's not injured,she'll be able to play Moscow's qualies to end this awful season.

Nikkiri
Oct 12th, 2009, 01:00 PM
Wasn't her hand it was the knee again. :sad:

"Maria Kirilenko of Russia was forced to retire due to soreness in her left knee after losing the first set to Viktoriya Kutuzova of Ukraine 6-2."

kirivanovic
Oct 12th, 2009, 01:15 PM
What's wrong with her knee? Usually, this kind of tape is used as a precaution but it seems that it bothers her really often. Maybe her meniscus but she has never talked about it...

watchdogfish
Oct 12th, 2009, 03:28 PM
Aww Maria :sad:
Rest up that knee :hug:
Nightmare season is almost over thankfully, hopefully 2010 will bring her better luck.

Heal fast and do well in Moscow :hug:

Maria. :hug: :sad:

I think we can safely say this is her worst season on tour.

SOA_MC

The knee this week :sad: We should be able to take bets before each tournament starts on Maria's injuries :o With the season ending earlier than usual this year. Hopefully Maria will take a few weeks off after Moscow with NO PRACTICE

Why isn't Maria getting a WC into Moscow? :confused:

kirivanovic
Oct 12th, 2009, 08:19 PM
Hi everybody!

Today, I had to finish my match against Viktoriya Kutuzova because of a knee problem. Tomorrow Iíll go home and I will try to be ready to play the Kremlin Cup in Moscow.

Thank you for all your kind messages on my website and on my Facebook. Thank you for supporting me, itís great !

Maria



I think that she didn't really want to play Osaka and that she really wants to play Moscow, that's why she retired...

Well she might ... but it depends on who else asks for one I guess.

You know, the very first time I saw Maria play in person (at the 2005 Rogers Cup in Toronto), she had to retire from her first-round match because of pain in her knee (I don't remember which one). I guess it was an indication of the problems to come. :sad:

kirivanovic
Oct 13th, 2009, 12:31 AM
Yes but it's never really serious, she can play the week after without much problems.If she doesn't wanna cure that knee and take some rest, she'll always have a small pain...

Nikkiri
Oct 13th, 2009, 12:57 AM
Yep she's always had problems with her knee. :sad:

Nikkiri
Oct 13th, 2009, 03:56 AM

Anyways Maria only needs 1 player to withdraw and shes into the MD.

kirivanovic
Oct 13th, 2009, 11:15 AM
Dinara should withdraw and stop her season:lol:

She is the highest ranked Russian not in the MD, even if no one withdraws she is going to get a WC.

Dinara should withdraw and stop her season:lol:

Safina and Dementieva are not playing Moscow because Doha is the very next week after.

They don't want to tire themselves out.

kirivanovic
Oct 13th, 2009, 07:40 PM
Safina is tired for 5 months now:rolleyes:, i thought she was playing there as usual but yeah, with the new calendar, that's a good decision.
