I also don`t think that the draw isn`t bad looking for Makiri. If she can show the good form that we saw from her last week, then i like her chances of at least reaching the quarterfinals. I really hope that Makiri will do well in San Diego this week.

DAVAJ MKirilenko
Aug 2nd, 2010, 06:23 PM
Draw is good again. I don't see really a dangerous Q. She beat Scheepers once in 3 sets but the other ones shouldn't be a problem at all. Hard to say how Pennetta's form is, so this certainly is a nice draw.

Let's hope she gets less problems with her serve than last week. Even when she won in straight sets she got broken too often. Against Radwanska she had her chances, if she just cut down the errors.

Good luck in San Diego!

Saw the match vs Nara live, and part of the doubles match. I also watched her work out in the morning with Kimiko Date Krumm which was awesome because I had a chance to talk with her, wish her luck and get an autograph. I really only went to the tournament to see Makiri and boy did i get to. I was waiting at Grandstand 2 at about 10 am, she walks in and I was pretty awestruck, she plopped her stuff next to me and had a brief workout with KDK (another one of my favorites). I sat basically right behind her chair during the match with Nara and I ended up with a game ball that I also got autographed. Basically the best day I could ask for when I woke up this morning.

A 3 hour singles match against a qualifier and then another 1 and a half hour doubles match?

Only you Kiri, only you. :lol:

Saw the match vs Nara live, and part of the doubles match. I also watched her work out in the morning with Kimiko Date Krumm which was awesome because I had a chance to talk with her, wish her luck and get an autograph. I really only went to the tournament to see Makiri and boy did i get to. I was waiting at Grandstand 2 at about 10 am, she walks in and I was pretty awestruck, she plopped her stuff next to me and had a brief workout with KDK (another one of my favorites). I sat basically right behind her chair during the match with Nara and I ended up with a game ball that I also got autographed. Basically the best day I could ask for when I woke up this morning.
great! i too, saw both matches today. maria is awesome :)
How did Maria play? Was she awesome or horrible? :p

How did Maria play? Was she awesome or horrible? :p

She was amazing first set, she was in total control and there was never any doubt. She turned into a hot mess the second set, lots of UE, and she started getting really vocal about her performance and she had a total meltdown in the tiebreak, throwing and banging her racquet and just screaming at herself. She took a 10 minute break and came back firing hitting a bunch of winners and making Nara work for anything she didn't win.

pretty much. the first set was great, then her serve left in the second, but she got it together again in the 3rd.

I don't mind that Maria lost early here because I was worried she was going to play herself into the ground pre USO.

Also I wonder since her and Aga are not teaming up then maybe Maria could give doubles a break for just one tournament :scratch:

Kiri, you shouldn't have blown a lead like that.. but after her last match I guess I'm not surprised.

I just noticed they are ranked 7th on the doubles race rankings. Now they're losing out on possible vital points to get into the championships.

Yuck, I don't know what to say, going up 5-2 and losing 6-7 is sickening. Hope she at least makes the finals of doubles with Jie, I really like Jie as a partner for her, she is very experienced in doubles and is a great tennis player overall. When I saw them play on Tuesday they seemed to really mesh well together, maybe this is the start of something for them two?
