Did Maria perhaps mention anything about her injury? hopefully she plays and she doesn't withdraw, although i prefer if she is 200% fit first, rather than making a return and possibly making her injury worse.

Vika, on paper, probably shouldn't be the best for Maria (She would do best with a big server, so she can put away the easy volleys) but she has great chemistry with Vika and they just work. :lol: I wouldn't be surprised to see them go far here, especially if either of them struggle in singles.

Russian tennis player Maria Kirilenko seeded 6th at the KC had told RIA Novosti that to win KC had been her dream she'd try to embode this time. KC is the last tournament of the season for Kirilenko
"I have had many tournaments, flights, trainings this year. I feel tired both mentally and physically. But I think it's great that the last tournament of the season is held in Moscow. This fact gives me extra emotions, so I don't even take notice of my tiredness. To win KC is my dream."

The Russian also mentioned that the draw was "tough" this year, and her first round opponent Dulgheru was a serious opponent.
" I had never played against Dulgheru before, but I know her to be very tough opponent. She plays very well on clay courts. Maybe she hasn't performed that well lately, but she's the player who fights till the end and almost does not make UEs. First round is always the most difficult and important."

According to Maria she herself is the most dangerous threat for her at tournaments.
"My level of play depends only on me. If I feel well, I can beat anyone." - she said.

Thanks to Serezha in GM

Maria did play and won a $75,000 challenger in Dubai in december of 2007, so she may very well play.

By my calculations she'd need something like a final in Moscow and a win in Poitiers. :shrug:

Yes, but i think she needs to win one of the 2 tournaments, and reach the semi-final of the other tournament. But it also depends on the results those have above her.

Not sure if it's wise to play doubles as well. She said she feels tired, but want to play cause it's Moscow. Dulgheru can give her a long match.

Rovegun
Oct 18th, 2010, 06:30 PM
congrats team!!!

I don´t know why Maria wants to play ITF but there is a real possibility she wants to reach Top 20 but she has to defend her points in Moscow first.. she needs to gain over 200 points and hope other players will lose... but now the most important thing is to defend points in Moscow... then she can look forward...

anyway good luck against Dulgheru! it´s gonna be a very tough match!

A very impressive win from Maria against the best-ranked not seeded player in the tournament, though she struggled with an injury from Osaka :)

I'm sorry for the way Alex played. You could really see that she is a clay specialist and she also had some problems with injuries in the past, that's why she had to withdraw from Linz :shrug:
Her serve was a catastrophe again, but that has much to do with her lack of power for Hard Courts and also her health problems. I hope Maria will reach the Top 20 and maybe next year, Alex will meet her there. ;)
