Maria can beat Pennetta :yeah: remember she's not the Pennetta of last year when she broke into the top 10.

But no way can I see Maria beating Clijsters :sad:

Good draw, should have no problems reaching the QF. But we all know Kiri doesn't have a brain so it might be tougher. :)

Maybe Sori will finally wake up in Marbella...I don't like this draw as i also like Sori:(

Um that draw is awful. Sorana is capable of so much more than she's done this year and same with Benesova then just to get to Pennetta. Brutal.

Cirstea so overhyped :o only next to Dulgheru as the most overhyped :help:

First two rounds should be easy straight sets wins

Nikkiri
Apr 4th, 2010, 09:42 AM
Yeah we'll see about that.

Apr 4th, 2010, 10:27 AM
Yes, Dulgheru was sooooo closed to go to the 1/4 finals last year in RG like Sori:rolleyes:

Nikkiri
Apr 4th, 2010, 10:40 AM
This is gonna get ugly I'm sure :happy:


Anyways Sorana just started working with Antonio Van Grichen who was Vika's and then Vera's coach.. I wouldn't be underestimating her.

Break My Rapture
Apr 4th, 2010, 01:47 PM
Yes, Sori CAN be dangerous. But I doubt that she's already back to form, she only started working with him like, earlier this week? :shrug:

But it'll depend on how Kiri shows up. If she shows up with a brain, it should be straight sets.

VIKA?

Oh that seemed like a bit of a disaster for Maria. Sounds like a match she really should have won.

But for once i'm not too upset with her loss as one of my faves beat her...and Sori needs wins as she has been awful this year so far.

Lets hope for better in Barcelona and I don't want her to play one of my faves in R1 again!

Just read this post in the thread in GM...

Against Wozniacki last week
against Cirstea this week

Kirilenko is really the player who chokes the most.
She has the talent for Top 20, but not the mental strenght.
It is nearly paradox: In her first sets she always seems confident and she has a great body language. And then she continues to play till the middle of the second set - From then on she begins to choke in a way i've never seen before.

And it's true :shrug:
We've seen it sooo many times. But just what goes on in Maria's head when she's in a winning position. If only she could have the belief she had against Sharapova at the Australian Open against all her opponenets :sobbing:

Hoping for a better result in Barcelona. Practise hard til then Kiri :hug:

12 double faults? Her serve is just so unreliable. Shvedova wasn't even playing that great but Maria just had so many problems serving and losing break points and game points by double faulting.

At least she talked to her coach/dad after the first set. Usually, that would be a good thing, but her game just collapsed after that.

I missed it - why did she get a point penalty?

She def didn't destroy her racket I looked away for a second probably in disgust lol and heard the umpire say point penalty kirilenko, maybe she hit a ball out into the crowd or something lol. She was pissed, terrible body language and then she just gave up and tanked the end of the match.

And of course, it's the same every year with her. I don't know why I keep expecting it to change. So inconsistent, plays her best tennis about 3 tournaments a year. I guess she will do well the Asian swing again.

She should destroy rackets, sometimes it works well:o . I think that she was mad because she knew that she was playing awfully, that she should have won this match, that she'll lose her points of last year, that she won't be seeded in RG, that she used to be great on clay, that grass is coming soon etc... (well, not sure that she thought about all of that during her match:lol:)

She can be brilliant on clay, so we still can expect her to wake up, then on grass, well, if she win 2 or 3 matches, it would be great.Then the US tournaments, she must have good results there to be ready for Asia where she's very famous:hearts:

Why isn't Maria playing Mickey Mouse tournaments Fes and Estoril? She'd have a lot better shot at gaining points at those tournaments. :confused:

After this week Maria is 85 points behind Vesnina for the #32 ranking. Maria is only defending 70 points (a quarterfinal in Estoril) for the rest of the clay court season

As it stands now Maria would need a quarterfinal in Rome, a 3rd round in Madrid, or a 3rd round in Rome and a 2nd round in Madrid to move up to the #32 ranking.

But I wondering - Tarpishchev saw Anna Chakvetadze as a possible player, but not Maria...
Maybe because of eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull Anna was more accessible than Masha?...:scratch:
