The draw is out. Maria plays Ula Radwanska in the 1st round, potentially Safina or a qualifier in the 2nd round, and potentially Ana Ivanovic in the quarters.

Radwanska leads the H2H with Maria. Safina isn't going to suck forever either. If she plays anywhere like she is capable of she can blast Kiri off the court. It's def not a favorable draw. Kiri will need to play her best.

I think Maria's been playing better than all 3 of them except possibly Ana and Ana tends to bottle it a bit when playing a friend. :shrug:

I think you can disregard their match on grass and Maria had to retire in their match after being up a break in the 1st set and I believe serving for the 1st set. Maria's had better results than Ula's had lately. :shrug:

Yes, but who knows when that will be? I think Maria has a good chance of beating Safina if that match happens based on both player's current form. Maria did beat Safina in 2 sets a couple of weeks ago in New Haven. :shrug:

Safina's form is still poor, her back is most likely still (unfortunately for her) a bit questionable, and Urszula has hardly been winning anything really. Ana is the most dangerous there since she has showed a little resurgence recently. I think Kiri can get to the semis, but yes, both Dina and Ana are capable of blowing Kiri off court, however they can only do that when at their best. Kiri historically performs well here and gets massive support, so I'm expecting good things from her.
