gc-spurs
Sep 24th, 2010, 06:39 AM
Thats a pretty good draw for her. Kimiko is playing Seoul this week so that shouldn't be too difficult. The crowd probably likes Maria enough for home court advantage to not kick in. Schiavone's unpredictable (for all we know she'll lose to BYE) but can't say I'm too worried about that one. And JJ has been playing like crap.

Good draw.

Schiavone is a loose cannon and played some superb tennis at the US Open, but let's take this one match at a time. Interestingly, Date-Krumm and Sharapova have never played each other before.

I fully expect Maria to win this one.

Coverage starts on Monday at 8:30 AM CET with a tape delayed stuff from one of the first two or three matches on OOP. Live coverage starts at 10:00 AM CET which is 5:00 PM local time (start of the evening session I guess ;) ). So if Maria plays during the evening session, she'll be live on ES :D

Well there's a difference between playing when you're 'feeling unwell' and 'coughing and sneezing the entire time'. The first one is probably the toughest, and I don't think you can play if you feel unwell, as in stomach ache etc.
Playing with a nasty cough etc is definitely manageable, as you said Maria did it in Doha '08.

I would love for her to qualify for Doha, but we have to be realistic -- currently Maria is a top 20 player.

A win in Tokyo and Beijing would give her a 1900 point boost so she should enter top 8 and she should also stay there, guaranteeing her spot in Doha normally. But I don't think that will happen, Azarenka and Dementieva are way closer to qualifying and they just need solid results from now on, whereas Maria needs pretty much spectacular results. Plus now that we know she's also sick her chances of doing well here just went down a bit I think.

yeah I know it's too bad, hope if Maria gets to top 10 we'll get to see her more in broadcasting (although she always gets the most media attraction in any tournament she goes)

Maria's ranking has nothing to do with this. You would think Sharapova against a local girl would be the highlight of the day...
There will be a livestream, I believe.

For those of you who missed this analysis in the Moscow thread, I inserted it here so you can better evaluate what Pova can do this Fall...



Pova's chances for getting into the YEC are not brilliant. To do it,
she would have to overtake Fran who is currently #8 and hope that
ARad and Elena (and others) don't do it better.

Here's how the Ranking Points lay out from the end of the USO on 9/13/2010.
The stats show the points #7 to #10 need to defend from the 2009 tournaments
along with Pova's. The "Fall Start" column shows the net points each player
has to build on from the begining of the 2010 Fall Tournaments with all points taken out from 2009 Fall Tournaments. Note, this is a rather optimistic analysis
because it does not consider the 16 Best Results that count towards Rankings...




Defending points from 2009 Tournies Fall
9/13 Seoul Tokyo Beijing Linz Osaka Moscow Start
---- ----- ----- ------- ---- ----- ------ -----
7 Stosur 4950 60 5 280 4605
8 Schiavone 4670 30 1 80 200 470 3889
9 ARad 3995 350 700 130 1 2784
10 Elena 3945 1 250 3694
15 Pova 3450 800 140 2510


Points available from the 2010 Fall Tournaments:


R64 R32 R16 QF SF F W
---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----
Tokyo 1 70 125 225 395 620 900

Beijing 5 80 140 250 450 700 1000

Moscow 1 60 120 200 320 470


YEC chances in view of all of this are dim at the very best. Pova will need
to win her three Fall Tournaments just to have an opening and, even then, hope
for someone, or more, to drop out of the YEC.

I am sure that Pova can add and subtract. Therefore, I believe she is just
trying to earn points for better positioning for 2011. But, of course, nothing
will happen if you don't try...

yeah...I remember last year that there was a website for a japanese channel that was showing Maria's matches live. I think you had to download something for it to work though.

How many points each player has to defend till the end of the season has nothing to do with the points necessary to qualify for Doha.
You should use the Race to the WTA Championships, not the Rankings.

Very good point! I'll try to find some time to fix that. I always forget about the race points...

Radwanska and Jankovic's match will be streamed live, Maria's probably not according to a source. Try to check FromSport, if there's any stream its gonna be on there. If its not on FromSport then most likely there's no stream.
