She found her way into Nadia's quarter again. :rolls:

Not the best draw, especially because Lucie has started to play well lately. But oh well - she's never played Lucie before has she? I don't remember. It'll be tricky, but at least if she loses she'll have Strasbourg before Roland Garros. :sobbing:

Best of luck, Maria. You'd have to beat these players if you want to win. Easy draws weren't really good for her in the past. :shrug:

Im not going to bother predicting all Im going to say is she couldnt have gotten a much worse draw than this. She will be lucky to make the quarters unless she can really turn it on. Of all the players she had to be in Serena's quarter with Elena there too :o

Im sorry about being so negative but Maria's play this year has not inspired me to believe otherwise. I hope she can pull an Ana and play some geat tennis.

Slampova
May 8th, 2010, 12:29 AM
4 aces, 2 doubles :unsure:

Good luck Maria. If you're healthy, Lucie shouldn't be too much trouble :unsure:

Please God don't let it be like her clay return last year lol. Someone said before her first macth with Garbin in Warsaw they had seen her practise and she would'nt loose more than 4 games... I watched until she won the first set and was up in the second and ready to win (She had lost 4 games in total)... Then I went to work and came back and she had scraped through in three :lol:

Lucas_Arg
May 8th, 2010, 01:10 AM
It's not like Maria has taken advantage of her easy draws such as IW.
So a hard draw shouldn't be a concern, since she still chockes against those like Zheng.
It's all on her, if she plays well she will go far, if she doesn't, see ya at France.

domon17th
May 8th, 2010, 01:59 AM
Haha prediction sounds fun. I'll add in mine.
My guess is, 2 Aces, 8 DFs

Seriously though, pls let it be a positive ace-DF count.

^^That's true. Regardless of if she's switching to HEAD or not, she's definitely holding a new stick this week.:unsure: Let's hope she doesn't go the Djoker route...

Some people are saying that Prince racquets are "stiff". So maybe getting a new racquet is a good thing. But I still think it's going to be Prince, I mean, she has a contract with them so there's no way she's switching to HEAD.
