We never know what to expect with Sveta, so she needs to focus on her 1st 2 matches and maybe she'll have a nice surprise on the 3rd round

Didn't Maria and Barbora play each other a lot in juniors? Both fought for the #1 ranking right? :confused:

Anyway, get to R3 first. Sveta will be tough though.

good news!:
Hello everybody !

All is well with me, and I am in New York already. Yesterday, I had a day off. Today, I going to practice. My first match is going to be on tuesday.

My back is feeling much better now. I had a lot of treatment on it the past few days, so I am happy about it ! I am looking forward to my first match ! I hope you will support me a lot during the US Open.

Sep 1st, 2010, 04:35 AM
I was at the match and there was an interesting development in the 2nd set with Kirilenko serving at 3-1 40-30. Strychova hit a ball that landed maybe 6 inches out on the baseline but the lineswoman (who was really old) didn't call it out. Kirilenko kept playing the point and eventually lost it to make it deuce. After losing that point, Maria just exploded and yelled at the umpire (Alison Lang, I think) saying something about how the ball was only going 2 kilometers per hour so how could she not see it go out. For Maria, it was a major emotional meltdown that we rarely see. Maria ended up losing the game and was still upset and lost the next game where she made a lot of unforced errors. After losing one point she even smashed a ball against the far wall and Strychova tried to get the umpire to give Maria a warning. I wonder if the extreme heat was a factor in Maria's little temper tantrum.

Anyway, it was a good thing that Maria collected herself and ended up winning the match. Sven Groenefeld was at the match at the end and was encouraging Maria which may have helped. Maria was also lucky that her opponent was also super emotional and was also complaining about lines calls and the umpire throughout the match. Anyway, even after she won the match, Maria was still talking to Alison Lang about the bad line call.

Overall, Maria played solid to get past a really consistent Strychova. It didn't seem like she was having any back problems which was also good.

When was the last time Maria was scheduled for a night match? I think it's been a really long time.

Good luck Kiri :cheer: pressure is all on Sveta to get her "revenge" but Kiri will need to play a very good match if she wants to win.

I think she is more of capable of playing a good game, its all up to Maria and her attitude. I can see Kirilenko winning this one, but only if she turns up and is aggressive.

Agree, Maria's groundstrokes are going all over the place because she can't put enough on them, and coming to the net = bad tactic in the wind too.

*0-2, this ain't looking good.

MH0861

Brilliant hold, she just needs to step it up in Sveta's service games as she seems to be relying on errors when Sveta serves so far.

I don't think she played that badly considering the conditions plus she tried to fight. A shame she lost but Sveta is really tough playing like that. Still proud of her results at the slams this year :hug: also hasn't lost to a player ranked below her since before Wimbledon.

Protoss
Sep 5th, 2010, 06:46 AM
Oh well. :sad: This was still Maria's best year in the slams, with Maria reaching the 3rd round or better for the first time ever. :)

Good luck in doubles Maria. :)

I'm not really disappointed. Sveta played quite well especially on the 1st set and it was hard for Maria to install her game.On the 2nd set, she had some opportunities but Sveta was more powerful and didn't make enough mistakes to help Maria.

Soon, Maria will go to Asia where she's very famous:hearts:

Who cares how her opponents are playing.. it's about Kiri and any time she has beaten a top 20 player she has played very well.

I'd like Maria to just keep playing consistent everywhere and perhaps pick up a title.

I want a Moscow final

She has done the Asia MM thing already and I think a final in Moscow would mean something to Maria :)

Who cares how her opponents are playing.. it's about Kiri and any time she has beaten a top 20 player she has played very well.

I'd like Maria to just keep playing consistent everywhere and perhaps pick up a title.

We should care it's not like we're supporting Serena over here.

If Maria is going to break into top 20 and beyond next season. She will need a better record against top 20 players.

It's an area she should be looking at to achieve for further success IMO. Unless she thinks a 20-30 rank is her peak :shrug:

Nikkiri
Sep 5th, 2010, 08:10 PM
Maria is having a good year. Has nice top 10/20 wins 3rd round or better at the slams. Gone from being ranked in the 60's to 24. It's all positive as far as I'm concerned. Just gonna leave it at that.
