K-Sprem...why!? Why every match the same way? Why always win the first set and then lose the next two? Sheesh!

The stats are crazy. Maria with just 13 winners and 13 UE, and then Sprem with 40 winners and 60 UE

calm down, croats. :spit:

this certainly is a disappointing loss. i really thought she was going to do something with this draw. at one point in the second set, she was nearly dead even in winners and errors, but she lost the ability to keep the ball in the court.

I guess Karolina may fall out of top 100 after this.

I was afraid you were going to lose to Sprem for a moment. :o

Great job! :kiss:

Now go win another match! :D :scared: :yeah:

That's too bad for Sprem.

But come on, there's no way to go but up for Maria this year. Last year was such a total unmitigated disaster. At least she has made it to the second round. I hope she can put it together this season. Good luck to her.

Only after the Fed Cup was year really bad for Makiri :9

But I'm glad she has no points to defend for a lot of the tournaments.

Thanks Nouf :D
Here's a post I read in a Makiri forum.
"A few more match stats

Masha wound up with 5 aces, now that's more like it! Had one DF. KS was 4 aces but had 11 DFs which is a bunch. Masha at 64% first serves in which is ok but not great, and won 60% of those first serves, which against KS is not really so good. In contrast Masha won 57% of her second serves. She had 31 second serves and only double faulted once, so she was not nervous Masha from that perspective. Masha was even in errors with 13 winners and 13 ues. KS had 40 winners and 60 ues and there in probably lies the match. Masha wound up coming to the net one more time for 11 net approaches and 9 winners.

It appears to me, without seeing the match (ESPN2 faithfully showing Americans during their coverage) that when Masha allowed KS to be the aggressor she did poorly. When Masha stopped being so defensive in her play and started going for winners, aces and trips to the net she really handled KS quite easily, as she should. The third set was all Masha's, she did good with the pressure on, great to see!"

Nice one Maria! But she win or did Sprem give it her?

From what I've read, the first set was heavily dominated by Sprem. But as they went to the second set and third set, Makiri stopped being defensive and took the net for 9 winners in a 11 approaches. It almost helped that she made 5 aces and only one double fault. :P

So what has happened to Sprem after her major upset over Venus?
Certainly more was expected from her.
But she has not been able to build on that?

A fan reaction after a fave's unexpected defeat.
I cannot say I have not been guilty of the same thing when Venus loses.
However, I believe the right thing to do, is not to discount the opponent victory. And give her the due credit she deserves. Reggardless of how our fave palyed.

I'm not trying to defend Karolina's lost. But it's a fact that she gave a victory and she played C R A P....
With this game Kirilenko won't go far in the draw (3rd round max - if she's lucky)....

Jan 16th, 2007, 01:40 AM
The only one who played like crap was Karolina. :p

Sure, she hit a lot of winners but combine that with 60 unforced errors, all Kirilenko had to do was keep the pressure on and just let Karolina self-destruct on her own. Add that to 5 aces and about a few successful net approaches, she was bound to win. :worship:
