i realize she's still in sydney playing dubs with dinara. however when she arrives in melbourne, this thread will be going off! btw does anyone have a hint of who she's playing dubs with?

They already lost in doubles in Sydney. Pretty sure Maria is playing doubles with Aga again.

Oh no Maria faces big Maria :bigcry:



Australia's Jelena Dokic faces a tough assignment to repeat her fourth round heroics from last year's Australian Open, with a first round clash against talented Russian 27th seed Alisa Kleybanova.
The draw for the 2010 Australian Open is currently being announced at Melbourne Park.

While Kleybanova represents a difficult first match for unseeded Dokic, the Australia did manage to defeat her in three sets (7-5, 5-7, 8-6) in a gripping fourth round encounter at last year's Australian Open in their only previous encounter.

Fellow Australian Anastasia Rodionova has a tough assignment in the first round against reigning French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Belgium's Kim Clijsters has drawn a qualifier in the first round, while her countrywoman and fellow comeback queen Justine Henin faces a second-round clash with talented Russian Elena Dementieva.

The first round also features a clash of Russian glamour girls Maria Sharapova and Maria Kirilenko. Sharapova holds a 2-1 advantage in their three career meetings to date.

Tough luck for maria as she play relatively well at auckland - determine and focus on her gameplan
If big maria play at her best that slim chance for upset.

from kiri's website

Maria Sharapova told few words about Makiri before to play monday 18 on the Rod Laver Arena at 11:00am for the first round of the Australian Open.

« You know, we kind of grew up together playing junior tournaments. We know each other’s games really well. We haven’t played each other in a long time. She’s a great player.

She knows how to play tennis really well. I just have to go out there, you know, and be ready from the first point. »

Little Masha took the first set from Big Masha in a tiebreak. It was a very tough set of tennis. Makiri hung tough even though Sharapova was really ripping her serve and ground strokes. :smash: It will be interesting to see if Makiri can keep it up in the second set.

What a great win for Makiri after it looked like she might let it slip away. Little Masha played Big Masha tough from the first game of the match on. This is Makiri's greatest match win without a doubt to this point in her career.

Jan 18th, 2010, 03:14 AM
makiri played so good. moving beautifully around the court and hitting sharapova's crosscourt shots very nicely back and keeping the balls in play.
showed absolutely no signs of nerves except when she was serving for the match (which is understandable). unlucky with the second set with all the deuces when she was serving. if not she could have wrapped up the match in two!! but she had some luck as sharapova made quite afew df to neutralise her aces.
hopefully this confidence carries her far and we'll be seeing our maria with her first grand slam title :) :) and nice to see igor supporting her!!

Rod the Bama
Jan 18th, 2010, 03:18 AM
What a great win for Makiri. :clap2: She did a great job of dictating the pace by extending the rallies and put together some nice shots. Plus Makiri showed a lot of poise throughout the match, especially when it looked like Masha was going to get back in the match. Finally i really loved seeing Makiri`s feisty and positive demeanor, which was much more fun to watch than Masha`s negative body language. I`m really proud of Makiri for rising up to the challenge and getting a big upset win today. :clap2: Hopefully this will be the start of good things for her in Melbourne.

Golovinjured.
Jan 18th, 2010, 03:22 AM
Even when she served for the match, and was broken, it was Sharapova who went out and won that game, Makiri didn't lose it.

Wow! What a match! Definately a great win for Maria. I was very happy to see the fighting spirit that first made me a fan of Maria's back in juniors come out in force in this match. That spirit has been missing too often in her matches. Maria played the way she needs to play to be succesful in this match. It was an excellent performance. Hopefully, she will continue to play like this. It would be great to see. Congrats Maria on a great win!

Jan 18th, 2010, 11:20 AM
Because it asks a lot of efforts and concentration to play like that. She played really really well, managed to stay focused during 3 and a half hours, run everywhere, was agressive when she could, showed some wonderful shots...She did everything well and it's hard to keep this level.

I hope that she won't be too tired against Meusburger, she can beat her of course but she will need some energy.

Jan 22nd, 2010, 11:33 AM
That was a very tough win by Maria over Vinci 7-5 7-6(4). This is the type of close match that Masha usually loses at the grand slams. There was alot of pressure on Maria to win this match and make the second week of a grand slam for only the second time in her underacheiving career. I sure hope her good play to start 2010 signifies that Maria will have the best year of her career this year. :tennis: :)

Against Safina in the fourth round Makiri will need to play her best defense and hope Safina has one of her generous days where unforced errors are concerned.

On a side note I don't like it when Maria plays all 3 events at a grand slam because al that tennis will drain some enrgy from her singles game if she makes the second week.

This SF spot is wide open. Probably Dinara, but Maria or Bondarenko are capable enough.
