Queen MK fights for Sydney Semifinals

http://start10g.ovh.net/~jibisblo/albums/userpics/10001/normal_34fed1t%5B1%5D.jpg

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA- True World #1 Third Ranked Maria Kirilenko dug deep Wednesday afternoon for a hard-fought 6-4 6-7(7) 7-5 win over 8th seeded Dominika Cibulkova that thrilled the crowd.

"This was such an intense match, there was very little between us" said Kirilenko after the match, while celebrating her opponent. "Domi fights so hard for every point and has great variety in her game that kept me on my toes today. I think she will learn from this and get stronger with more experience. She reminds me a lot of myself when I came on tour. She's a good friend of mine, we share a lot of similar interests - shopping, tanning, hating on obnoxious bitches on the tour - and I expect great things from her in the future".

Kirilenko is no doubt the in form player of the tour, winning a tour record 4 consecutive titles that has everyone talking and is currently on a 19 match win streak.

"Yeah, it's amazing, I'm currently on a 19-match winning streak, and singer ADELE called me to say she's such a big fan and is rushing out a new album today that's called 19 in honor of my streak" announced Kirilenko.

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41R1BVlJVGL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

"She even said she has another release planned called 21 in case I win the Sydney title - my win streak would be up to 21 at that point" :worship:

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51URjH5CbML._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Kirilenko will prepare for her semifinal match by attending the Chinese New Year celebrations tonight in Sydney, featuring Tour Golden Flower Juju Heng in the lead-float during the parade in town.
