Good to get a win. It doesn't seem like it was too convincing, but all that matters is its a win and in 2 sets too :yeah:

Good start to grass season, good luck v Flipkens :)

Wasn't that great today, but she looks more solid now. Played the important points well enough and uses her chances.
At the end of the day she was all alone on the court, no coach or hitting partner. Just serving.

Tomorrow she plays at the same time as Ana. I like court 1 better so I guess I will choose for Maria.

Harsh judges you all are.

Transition from clay to grass is always difficult for every player not named Williams.

I will give Maria credit for now winning matches consistently after the last two seasons 3-4 month slumps when she didn't win at all anywhere

Damned, i don't think that Flipkens's coach was a tennis player before:lol:

Maria called the physio for an abdominal pain i guess as it's hard to see with their cameras, maybe her shoulder too as there are tapes on it.:( And now, it's her thigh and knee, 2 medical time outs ...

She had tape on her leg yesterday. I guess that's what is bothering her.

was her upper hamstring

Maria should try to go to the net even more often, Flipkens is horrible on passing shots:lol:

Maria retired, i think that it was the better decision...She shouldn't play doubles to be ready for Wimbledon.

It's the dreaded return of mummy kiri :sad:

And congrats to Sorana fans.

She must like me, the one time I wanted her to win she does ;) and now I can play guess how fast all the Schiavone avatars will disappear from TF :devil:

Left abdominal injury, but it seemed like more than just that. Plus the shoulder was taped yesterday. We will see how serious it is.. when it comes to doubles :lol:

If it's today I wish she would pull out :(

I suppose wait and see.

Hopefully she doesn't revert into dumbkiri by forcing herself to try and play tomorrow if not truly healthy.

Especially after she admitted last year she forced herself to play with a bad knee.

Really hope she pulls out of doubles. Far too close to Wimbledon to be risking anything now.

DAVAJ MKirilenko

Wasn't a good day today. Even with the injuries Maria was still in the match.
She took even a double medical time out after the first set. How she played after that, makes me think the injury won't be that serious. But it seems to be a bit of more things.
Now please don't play doubles tomorrow. I won't show up even if you play so don't do it.
Just save everything for Wimbledon.

I must say that I like her even more cause of this Rosmalen. Her losses make me more said these days than Ana's losses.

Nikkiri
Jun 16th, 2010, 03:48 PM
Maria an Vesnina retire at 0-3 Kiri's injury I would assume. I don't even understand why she tried to play. But thank god she retired.

DAVAJ MKirilenko
Jun 16th, 2010, 04:25 PM
Why did you even try? I really don't understand. Wimbledon is around the corner and now she even wanted to play a day after her retirement in singles. Don't be so stupid girl :sad:
Let's hope she's fit again in time.

BTW was Maria in Rosmalen without a coach or her father? so she was alone? That's strange.

Her father wasn't there, or at least I haven't seen him. The only practise I saw was Maria hitting serves, but that was all alone.

Against Flipkens there was a man who could be her coach for this tournament, but I haven't seen him before.

Sadly I actually don't know exactly how the coaching situation is now.
Last year Wimbledon she started with the adidas program and later it was just her father. Haven't read much updates after that.

The only noticable when she entered the court today was some bandage around her left kneecap (in the same color as her shirt.....; try to imagine, I cant be bothered to put up any pics).
That is, until she started serving (at 0*-2). I was afraid the ball wouldn't even reach the net. The weakest serve I've ever seen during a WTA tennis match (and I've seen Dementieva serve).

She still works with the Adidas program. Sven mentions her in a lot of his blogs. They are at Eastbourne this week, but still really strange her father wasn't with her.

Also I wonder how Maria injured herself.. she seemed fine at RG and now she seems to be struggling with multiple injuries, hopefully her site can give us some kind of update.

That at least explains why I haven't seen any update, that she's still with the program. Everytime I saw Sven it was with Wozniacki or Cirstea. Kinda looks like they get more attention than Maria.
Then I'm not even sure that she started with the program at Wimbledon last year. In Eastbourne Maria did nothing with them.

Yes, I really think her father wasn't there. In the 2 matches I didn't see him at all. Maybe I was blind....

Not sure what to think about the injury. It just can't be that serious. She still played ok against Flipkens and even wanted to try yesterday.
I would be really mad if we read in the next days that Maria withdraws from Wimbledon.
