View Full Version : Estoril 1R: [2] Kirilenko def. Vogele 6-4 6-7(2) 6-1

Very shaky performance, but a win is a win. Maria was leading 5-1 in the second set, but Vogele somehow came back to win it in a tiebreak. Maria then raced through the third set, which was probably a result of her raising her level and Vogele running out of energy.

Not very convincing but a wins a win and she needed this one badly. Losing streak is over :banana: don't start another one.

Apr 15th, 2008, 05:35 PM
congrats masha
for voegele, it was her first wta match (in a main draw), she won 2 matchs in qualies, and she lost only in 3 sets vs Kirilenko after a big fight, so it's a positive tournament for her..

Apr 15th, 2008, 05:36 PM
Couldve been a lot better, but a win is a win :hug:

Much better than last years Estoril performance :tape:

Apr 15th, 2008, 05:36 PM

I`m glad Makiri finally won this match. Obviously there`s a lot of work for her to do, but a win`s a win.

Apr 15th, 2008, 05:48 PM
wow :speakles:


Apr 15th, 2008, 05:58 PM
Steffy :sad:.
Amazing tournament though for you. :hug:

I was worried she would lose her confidence after being up 5-1 in the second and having a match point but she managed to win in a good third set. Finally a singles win, Makiri! :D And in Portugal. :D :D
Anyway, hopefully this will help her mentally to be able to finish matches easier. :)

Maria :banana:

Apr 15th, 2008, 07:19 PM

Maria wins a match :banana: :D

Apr 15th, 2008, 09:56 PM
Nice job Maria!

Apr 15th, 2008, 10:07 PM
Good that she managed to keep her confidence after being 5-1 in the 2nd.

A win's a win, good job Maria :).

Apr 15th, 2008, 10:19 PM
i wish people would stop believing in kirilenko.

Apr 15th, 2008, 10:22 PM
Maria was leading 5-1 in the second set, but Vogele somehow came back to win it in a tiebreak.

Mostly Vögele just letting it rip and really taking it to Kirilenko. Played with reckless abandon while making absolutely no needless errors. Couldn't keep it up in the 3rd, though.

Kirilenko is extremely vulnerable on clay. Just about anyone has a shot at taking her out.

Apr 15th, 2008, 11:30 PM
Finally the drought has broken :lol:

Hopefully this win will give Maria some confidence ;)

Nice fighting win Maria :yeah:

Apr 16th, 2008, 01:06 AM
I'm really surprised she didn't choke after that 2nd set. :tape:

But finally a win for Maria! :D

Take this and do even better. :yeah:

Apr 16th, 2008, 01:07 AM
i wish people would stop believing in kirilenko.

Would you stop believing in one of your faves?

Whats it to you? :wavey:

Apr 16th, 2008, 01:22 AM
Nice one Maria!....take the 2nd set out and its a good win :lol: she did fight back from 2-5 in the 2nd so thats good anyhow
