Stop complaining. It's the first big tournament of the year, and we've been starved of tennis for ages :o

Mary Joe Fernandez just made the inevitable "Kirilenko plays like Hingis" comment. Noooo! :sobbing:

It's not just that match. I watch Safna w/2-3 double faults a game win matches...very few matches worth watching.

I don't remember Kirilenko playing with such little power. Maybe I haven't watched her in a while.. :confused:

I hate Sharapova, but there's something very appealing about her game which I have to watch :sobbing:

I turned off TV after three games of Sharapove vs Kirelenko. Ugly match, hit/miss/DFs.

Actually the quality of tennis is pretty high for women's game...you've got to be spoiled to complain about it

We'll have to agree 2 disagree...I'll watch the men until there r some watchable matches on the womens side. Lucky enough 2 have direct tv...5 courts...YEAH.

Try watching Safina :o

I really hope this turns out into a Maria mess. 15+ DF and losing 8/6 in the third.

Maybe :lol: The last match I saw Kirilekno play was her fourth round against Daniela a couple of years ago. She wasn't hitting much harder then.

They met at the net for the coin toss, and neither one has been there since. I'm sorry, but that ain't tennis.

lol...bigger mess would b the 15+ DF and she wins...sad but more likely outcome.

Some people can never be sastified. Seriously :rolleyes:
The Maria-Maria match is actually of high quality. Some DFs and choke here and there by Sharpie but overall it's very good match.

Kirilenko is wearing so much eye make-up

Not true...but if the men can play quality matches y can't we expect the same of the women...

You missed the point where Kirilenko and Sharapova were both at net and Kiri lobbed her?

LeRoy.

Capriati would have enjoyed the baby crying.

Yeah constantly trying to be a smart ass can sometimes make you miss things like that.

we're only in the first round where matches are supposed to be boring and lopsided.
We got Sharapova-Kirilenko with Kirilenko being no pushover and people are still whining :yawn:

What Maria is wearing is fugly (I'm talking about that chiffon... thing). :tape: That's what makes the match hard to watch.

This match has that Pin match from 07 written all over it. :unsure:

Kirilenko is probably playing as well as she can - grinding it out and not making any errors, and people are still complaining? What do they expect - Federeresque magic?

this match is horrible- what a way to ring in the first Major of the year. Kirilenko sounds like she's retching. sharapova would be good if she could actually move.

OK, I stand corrected. They each have been to the net one time during the match. I'll try not to doze off and miss the next one. :yeah:

Maria S has actually been to the net a couple more times, but each time she hit a FAIL volley and got passed. :lol:
