Clijsters - Camerin
Sprem - Mattek-Sands
Perry - Yakimova
Voegele - Kirilenko

Kiri's section. I guess it all depends on Kiri's health.

If she could win 2 matches without injured herself, i'd be happy.

Nikkiri

I'd be happy with one win or a set :lol: I guess it's good that the injuries came during grass season when we don't expect much anyways.

First round can be tough. Voegele has a good serve. Still she need to win her first match ever at Wimbledon.
2nd Round looks be easier, probably Perry who has only a serve.

But first of all we should wait how Maria's condition is. So little time to recover. For sure she will be taped when she comes on court.
She plays already Monday.

GOOD LUCK GIRL :hug: & :hug:

Is there any word on Maria's injuries? If she's healthy she could make it to the 3rd round. :)

I know this is negative but I think Maria stands a better chance in the doubles :p

Still, Maria only seems to show up at slams now so who knows.

kiri will upset clijsters in the 3rd round, right?she has to upset someone...

That's the spirit! Who tought she would reach QF AO, QF Rome or RG R4?
She has top 10 wins in her last 2 slams and also a good win at USO.
Grass is different of course, she won only 2 matches here.

Of course I hope for all the best, but a third round would be really nice and we should be realistic as well. If she plays Clijsters it's already a good tournament :yeah:
Most important is still that she's fit.

Maria needs decent to good results outside the slams to stay seeded though. So it's not a good idea unless you like the idea of Maria drawing Serena in the 1st round of a slam. :p

That was a nice comeback win for Maria over Voegele who played an outstanding and powerful match against Maria. Voegele had 51 winners to only 26 unforced errors. While Voegele played a strong match Maria played a slightly cleaner match with 36 winners and only 17 unforced errors and perhaps fewer mistakes from Makiri pulled her through in the end. It was a close match and the statistics at the Wimbledon website prove that.

Good luck to Maria against Perry. Little Masha needs to win that match.

Jun 23rd, 2010, 06:05 AM
In one sense, Perry thinks she has the game to make a bigger charge, but she's also feeling pain again in her surgically repaired right knee and says she might have to undergo surgery again. She's trying to stay relaxed and as pain free as possible and doesn't want to feel the tension that filled her body when she was the last U.S. player standing back in 2006.

Hrm... :wavey:

The pressure was on Maria to beat Perry and she did in straight sets. Well done. Now comes Maria's match against Kim Clijsters who seems to be even bigger and faster than before. :eek: Maria and Clijsters are both 5'8" tall but that's where the physical comparision ends. Maria moves like a ballerina on the court while Clijsters is impossibly fast carrying around what is probably 40 to 50 pounds more on her body than Makiri has. I don't know how Clijsters does it she is a phsyical phenomenon. I hope Maria can get off to a good start in her match with Clijsters and gains some confidence. You know Clijsters will try to blow Little Masha off the court in the first set but I hope Maria can avoid that and then get into the match.

It has been a very long time since I posted something here but here we go.
Good match for Maria, first set was just over 20 min, very agressive play from Maria in the 1st set, atacking every 2nd serve of Perry and scoring some nice return winners. 2nd set Perry changed here game to serve/volley on both 1st and 2nd serve most of the times. Maria made some nice passing shots but if the return wasn't good enough perry finished it at the net. Almost every service game of Perry was at 30-30 or deuce if I remember correctly. Maria's service games where a lot easier, even some aces. Her last service game was also very good.
Hope she does well against Kim.

Kim Clijsters is arguably the toughest matchup for Little Masha on the WTA Tour. :eek: Except for volleying Clijsters dones everything better than Maria and she has more power and greater speed than Masha does too. :smash: :bolt: Makrii played a respectable match against Clijsters with 15 winners and only 10 unforced errors even though Clijsters won the match 6 - 3 6 - 3. Makiri is having a nice year but I'd like to see her win a singles title this year to make her year complete. :tennis: :)

hey, I´m also Maria´s big fan and have to say I didn´t expect a lot from Masha at Wimbledon but I´m very happy she has made the 3rd round and gained some points into rankings... I think Maria has done a big progress this season and hope she will be healthy to make other good results in this season... I think this season has been her best so far but without a title but I believe she will win one maybe in South Korea where she likes it...
