Obviously Melanie Believe. Dulko because exos don't count and Wimbledon rd 2 was embarassing. Na Li has done 2 in a row so she makes the list.

I'd say Cibulkova, but Maria overachieved in FO last year so no revenge needed there.

Starting out at Cinci, Pova rank is #13 and will be seeded no lower than #11, due to Serena and Justine withdrawing. This is true if the Rankings from Aug 2 are used, which I believe is the case.

Pova needs to earn a total of 550 points at Cinci and Montreal combined to defend the remaining points from last year. On top of that, she needs to earn another 200+ to get into the 9-12 seed group for the USO. A mighty difficult undertaking.

If you look closely at Pova's 2009 results below, the superstitious among us would immediately note she went from QuarterFinalist to SemiFinalist to Finalist in her three tournaments. Does this portend that, since she was a Finalist at 2010 Stanford, she will be the winner at 2010 Cinci? "Hope springs eternal...".


320 points earned at 2010 Stanford as the Finalist.
000 points earned at 2010 Cinci, 900 points available.
000 points earned at 2010 Montreal, 900 points available.

320 total 2010 USO Series Ranking Points earned to date: USOS Points = 45

120 points earned at 2009 Stanford (QuarterFinalist)

A final in Cincinnati would already defend all her points from last year. If she wants to be in the top 10 she'd have to win either Cincinnati or Montreal, which isn't easy. When was the last time she won an event bigger than a Premier? I don't expect her to get back into the top 10 yet, maybe next year, she has so much to defend. Could have gotten back in the top 10 by now if she didn't suck so much during the beginning of the season.

I'm glad that the line up is a tough one. I believe that Maria needs that to improve even more.
I think she's on the right track. Yes it doesn't go as fast as we all hoped for but at least she's staying healthy (Goddess please don't let me have jinxed her) and getting further and further even in the tougher tournaments. Who knows, where she'll be next year if she keeps going on like this. Who knows, maybe she surprises us all even before next year. Wouldn't that be something ;).

The Cinci match Schedule is layed out below. Note it has the same scheduling kerfuffle between day and night sessions, even for the SemiFinals. It's really hard going from night to day sessions, especially late in the tournament. That's the way it is, though.

Date Session Time Session Type

Sat, Aug 7 10AM Women's Qualifying
Sun, Aug 8 10AM Women's Qualifying
Mon, Aug 9 11AM & 7PM Women's Main Draw - Early Rounds

OPENING NIGHT CELEBRATION

Tue, Aug 10 11AM & 7PM Women's Main Draw - Early Rounds
Wed, Aug 11 11AM & 7PM Women's Main Draw - Early Rounds
Thu, Aug 12 10AM & 7PM Women's Main Draw - Early Rounds
Fri, Aug 13 10AM & 7PM Women's Quarterfinals
Sat, Aug 14 1PM - Women's Singles Semifinal, followed by Women’s Doubles Semifinal
Sat, Aug 14 7PM - Women's Singles Semifinal, followed by Women’s Doubles Semifinal

Sun, Aug 15 12:30PM - Women's Doubles Final & 3PM - Women's Singles Final

Four days to complete the first 3 Rounds and then the Quarters, SemiFinals and Final on Fri, Sat and Sun, respectively. The best possible schedule for Pova would be to play Mon, Tue and Wed, Thu off, and then into the three BIG matches. So, given Pova's luck, She'll play Mon with Tue off and have to face matches on five consequtive days, probably alternating night to day just to keep things interesting!

perseus2006
Aug 2nd, 2010, 04:28 PM
The TV schedule, Times are EDT, as is Cinci local time:

Thu. 8/12 3:00 - 5:00 pm ESPN2
5:00 - 9:00 pm Tennis Channel

Fri. 8/13 5:00 - 7:00 pm Tennis Channel
7:00 - 9:00 pm ESPN2
9:00 - 11:00 pm Tennis Channel

Sat. 8/14 1:00 - 3:00 pm Tennis Channel
9:00 - 11:00 pm ESPN2

Sun. 8/15 5:00 - 7:00 pm ESPN2
8:00 - 9:30 pm Tennis Channel

Many of the matches are not live so that Men's matches can be shown live! That's really irratating.

And Kim was 1 foot into retirement :rolls: (excuses, excuses :p)

Anyway, it's still 3-1 on American hard courts for Kim and I think that Kim would be a very tough match up for Maria. She's a superior mover and heavy and consistent ball striker (when she's on). She'd make Masha hit 1, 2, 3 extra balls, while trying to switch from defense to offense.
Masha can definitely beat her when she's serving well, plays aggressively and keeps her UEs low, but she could also lose to her in straight sets.:shrug:

Never underestimate Kim. That's one thing I learnt last year.:lol:

Yeah but I think Maria just knows how to beat Kim.She did that tactic to find the right ball to come IN in their last three matches and it worked!
Kim would feel a huge pressure if she faces Maria.

Even if Maria lost I would love to see her getting tested against Kim!

Masha is better than Petrova and she beat Kim 0 and 1 at AO this year. When you're on-you're on and when you're not-you're not. If Masha puts everything together in the one match, she would beat anyone. Usually it's either the serve or the groundstrokes working, rarely both at the moment.

yup, and that's the biggest issue for Maria now - to find a right balance in her game. Nowadays it seems like if one area of her game is clicking, another goes completely missing:sad: I bet it annoys her too and she must work with Joyce to figure all these inconsistencies out

You know how Cincy and Montreal are back-to-back tournaments.

Does that mean that if Maria got to the semis of Cincy, she would get a bye into the second round of Montreal?? (Like they did with Tokyo-Beijing last year)

Marilyn Monheaux
Aug 3rd, 2010, 02:08 PM
^^Don't think so. Flavia made the semis in Cincy last year and had to play the 1st round in Montreal. Beijing is a Mandatory event, so I guess that's why you get a bye if you made it to the semi final the previous week.

Some Caro fans are too delusional to be true. :rolleyes: Christ, Woz barely hit 20 winners. I believe she had only 8 winners after the 2 first sets alone. :help: Oh yeah, so talented. :bowdown: WOW I'm so stunned by her play and different, great aspects of her game.

If Caro ever runs in someone who's just semi-agressive from the baseline and doesn't spray like crazy, she's in deep sh*t trouble, like she was against JJ in Indian Wells.:drool:
Masha would punish her puff balls mercilessly!

I'm seriously gutted by Julia's many many errors. The only things worse were the line judges and the crowd.:o

"If you don't have something nice to say, it's best to say nothing at all", my dad offered that advice, frequently. It's good stuff, live by it.

As for Caro, she is a very nice person, plays a type of game that works for her and she has some pretty good results. My preference is for a much more aggressive game both to play and to watch but that doesn't mean Caro is evil!

VERY interesting draw.
It's not necessarily a super tough one but it's full of tests since round 1 and unless Kuznetsova plays out of her mind, which I doubt considering her form lately and even though she's in the San Diego semis she hasn't really been anything special there imo, she NEEDS to go deep here or this will turn out to be another wasted Grand Slam warmup series.
I reaaaally hope she steps it up here, she has a chance to win against big names of the moment and that will boost her for a real chance at the US Open.

Maria will win this match in two.

There is no way she is loosing to this.... girl!

Mr.Sharapova
Aug 7th, 2010, 10:32 PM
And btw she is in the easier part of the draw she has Wozniacki and Radwanska so Maria better get to the semis of this tournament at least!

BTW is she gonna play doubles with Wickmayer here? :unsure: I thought Wickmayer said something about partnering up at a different tournament in the USOS since they weren't allowed to in Stanford.

Well she's obviously trying to whore up as many points as possible now so her US Open points wont make too big of an impact on her ranking when they come off. :lol:

She played one good tournament. She is not going to turn GOAT out of nowhere.

Okay I take my words back. Kuzzy is playing GOAT.

Aug 7th, 2010, 11:35 PM
She wasn't playing THAT well. :shrug: She still makes some sloppy errors. Besides she's in the final now and will still only have 1 day to get to Cincy and recover (as they play on Tuesday now right? :unsure:).

Hehe. I'm not convinced about Kuznetsova's form yet but I must say that her performance against Pennetta came out of nowhere. Uhh, but we all also thought Ivanovic would be "back" after her Rome tournament but still spiraled out of nowhere.

It's not like Maria is playing complete shit. She just made the finals of Stanford...I wouldn't automatically count her out against Kuzzy who has slumped for 90% of the last year.

Maria will be fine! She is, afterall, a much tougher opponent than Flavia IMO.

Uhm I actually think Maria did play like shit in Stanford. :p I just hope she was able to clean up her game as much as possible for this tournament.

Vika first set + last 2 sets Aga + occasional games Elena D + Zheng match + Govortsova match = decency, right? :shrug:

Aug 7th, 2010, 11:47 PM
Well we don't know how she played against Zheng & Olga. I wasn't really convinced at all in her entire match against Vika. She was so inconsistent against Dementieva. The last 2 sets against Aga were indeed decent. Well that's what I think of it. :lol:

Key word being decent. No outstanding play from what I saw last week. Either shit or decent.

That said, Sveta's not the most consistent player out there. Let's just see what happens.

I don't really know...I mean, I don't mind Sharapova losing to Kuznetsova, at all. But the fact that this is a first round match and that would mean Maria losing in the first round is just completely stupid.

The WTA is really annoying sometimes.

The worst is to read Caro fans. Whatever the only things where Caro is very good at, to drive people away from Tennis. I'd rather watch ZDF, e.g. Lanz Cooks, a few crime series etc. I bet the cooking editions on Zdf sell more than Caro. With Caro women's tennis is only loosing money.

Well, Uruguay sells 10 times more tickets than Caro. And I think esp. the Caro fans should see that in football you can't afford to play in front of empty seeded stadiums else teams are in big financial trouble. Whatever I expressed my opionion against poster kman;

oooo interesting draw. If she can get through Sveta I can see her going far, but she needs to win the first few round easily.

Gutting that she has such an unappealing/boring game and that she whores up tournaments. Cause otherwise she's really quite likeable... she has some real great qualities as a person, but her tennis is just so easy to hate on -> more haters than fans.

Are you fucking kidding me? Kuznetsova has been shit for the whole year and the one time she's playing well again Maria draws her in the first round? Why does she never meet Kuznetsova when she isn't playing well? Another bad draw to add to the list :o

Mrs. Dimitrova
Aug 8th, 2010, 07:28 AM
Maria is unlucky like that. I cannot remember the last time she had a decent draw. :lol:

Seriously did you see the draw? I mean, the first quarter has like 3 qualifier vs qualifier matches and has 5 qualifiers in one quarter. :help:
