Last year, Wismilak given qual WC for Hsieh Su-Wei and she reached semifinal. Now, Maria Kirilenko got maindraw WC and double qualification WC. She started her action with good performance when defeated Dekmeijere/Valerro in 1st round double qual.
Can she follow Su-Wei last year route? I think she has big chance here. She will face 4th seed Nicole Pratt di 1st round, and if she take this match, hope meet Angie in 2nd round.
Goodluck to Maria Kirilenko:bounce:

Well yes Kirilenko played a tough match against Molik, pushed her a lot. Molik didn't enjoy this match, she struggled to gain the upper hand losing concentration at times by Kirilenkos court antics! I still think Pratt will be way to tough for Kirilenko, she does everything better, 6-2 6-3 Prattie!!!!!!

Pratt is a seasoned campaigner if there ever was one.
She is very very far ahead of Kirilenko mentally...... i expect Pratt to beat Kirilenko in straight sets 6-4 6-2
At this stage of her career Pratt is very consistent and smart.
