Hope for a Polona v Kiri quarterfinal :drool:

It could have been better because Na Li and her awful game will be tough to beat in the 2nd round...But let's win her 1st match of the season to begin it well.

A livestream will be available on bet365;)

Well, i don't know, maybe because they don't know at which hour will be the match...Vesnina's match isn't on the schedule too and this is not a night session match...So i don't know.I didn't check if they broadcasted Medina/Rybarikova this morning/night :lol: .

1pm

Singles - Maria Kirilenko (RUS) v Kaia Kanepi (EST)


Court 6 :help:

kirivanovic
Jan 5th, 2010, 12:09 PM
I couldn't see her match but it seems that she played great.Was she aggressive and came to the net quite often?

Maria has beaten Kanepi twice but in 3 sets, so it will be a good test for her tomorrow.

Sydney's qualies begin on friday,so she can still win a match and go to Sydney. That's why i have a serious question for Nikkie as i can be serious once or twice a year. Would your prefer to see Maria losing quite early in Auckland in order to see her in Sydney or would you want her to go far in Auckland? (tough question:lol:)

Nikkiri
Jan 5th, 2010, 01:09 PM
I want Auckland title or nothing :p

But no seriously I'd like Kiri to do as well as she can. As I can always just see her at the AO.

kirivanovic
Jan 5th, 2010, 01:28 PM
Nice:worship:

She hasn't an easy draw but nothing impossible. If she beats Kanepi, i'll be happy and consider that it's a good beginning of the year.

I think Maria has a good chance against Peer. At least she's playing well having a good start to the year :)

kirivanovic
Jan 6th, 2010, 09:54 AM
Well she could play two matches in one day couldn't she?:awww:

Well, if she runs or swims really fast, it could be possible but otherwise, she would need an help by the Sydney's tournament e.g being scheduled late on friday for her qualies match and play early in Auckland:rolleyes: .Considering that it will be her Kiristmas tomorrow, i don't think that she'll spend it on a plane or running everywhere.

But 1st, she has to beat Peer, her awful game and awful behaviour. She beat her once but it's never easy to beat her especially as she seems to be in good form...

HowardH
Jan 6th, 2010, 10:18 AM
Lol, Shahar's behaviour isn't that bad I think, she always complains about some weird calls is all, I think she doesn't see the lines that well and thinks people are calling against her. Shahar is always a fighter, but Maria is definitely the favourite.

Peer holds for 6-1 3rd set at 40-15 from 40-0. :( The match was 1 hour 44 minutes long.

Well that 3rd set sure was dissapointing after the 2nd set. :( I wonder what would have happened if Maria had taken one of those break points in the 1st game of the 3rd set, that could have changed the momentum of the match.

HowardH

That 0-40 chance lost at the beginning of the third then going down 0-40 herself was a real killer, changed the momentum completely. Oh well.

If Maria's knee is bothering her, should she withdraw from Sydney?

kirivanovic
Jan 7th, 2010, 12:08 AM
I think that when she was broken in the 3rd, she decided not to push too hard in order to keep her knee safe and go to Sydney with less pain on that damn knee.

Let's hope that she'll play there:rolleyes:

I agree second set was really good. And in third I saw some shots which made me to like Maria's playing tennis. This set gave hope to us that she can do many more in new season than 2009.
I want to add one thing, she became playing better after time out. It's really work:)

And her knee made me bother. I was think already, that it absolutely healthy...

I don't think that she had time to withdraw yesterday. There is probably another reason...Maybe she received a wildcard as only Henin and Dellacqua received one:rolleyes: . There are 2 WC still available:angel:

^ Maria had a high enough ranking for the Q draw which she entered.

I wonder if she promised Safina she would play doubles with her and doesn't want to break the promise to her friend.

If she is playing injured then :weirdo:

Nikkiri
Jan 9th, 2010, 11:20 AM
Well we don't know when she pulled out of Sydney qualies. Maybe she didn't think one day was enough time to recover and travel from Auckland to Sydney to play 3 rounds of qualies and then more matches if she made it in the MD. She's there anyways and will be supporting Igor I'm sure so she may as well play doubles if shes healthy which she obviously is.

kirivanovic
Jan 9th, 2010, 12:08 PM
On the tournament's website, they said that they had 2 other WC to give but it seems that they were wrong...So, they gave 2 WC, 1 for Henin and the other for... Dellacqua:lol: who will play a qualifier.

I think that she pulled out of the qualies because she didn't feel so good, but after 4 or 5 days, all is ok and she's ready to play and would have been ready to play in singles.

Now, good luck against the witches in doubles:rolleyes:

SOA_MC
Jan 9th, 2010, 12:51 PM
The wanting a few days off to recover does make sense.

Maria has done this before I believe, not actually playing qualies and just sticking around to play doubles.
