i know its a bit early to make a thread but...

repeat of last year please. i dont want to jinx her or anything, so the title is a bit generic. im hoping for a good draw like last year (minus a vengeful sharapova out for blood).

Oprandi, then Benesova/Medina, then Pavlyuchenkova and Zvonareva.It was hard to see ,so i'm not 100% sure but it seems that be that.

Could have been worse. Needs to play well and make R3 hopefullly :)

Zvonareva may get eliminated early, she plays Bojonovski in round 2 who is in great form! so she may not even play Maria in round 4.

Oprandi can be very annoying to play,so Maria will have to be concentrated...But it could have been worse, she has to win at least 2 matches.

Oh this is a fantastic draw, Pavlyuchenkova is about the easiest R3 draw she could have gotten :yeah: R4 would be a wonderful result.

Maria should beat Oprandi, Oprandi won Caserta 2010...although Maria would win that tournament without a challenge:lol:. I think given how far she went into last years Aussie open..she will go in it this year very confident!:)

Who's Maria playing doubles with? Will she play mixed as well?

Nikkiri
Jan 14th, 2011, 09:48 AM
Azarenka I guess.. and who knows if she will play mixed this year after how her body started falling apart last year after playing so much. :lol: Maybe she will play with Zimonjić again he's in need of a partner now as Ivanovic was meant to play with him but decided against it cause of her injury. Or just Igor..

I really hope she won't partner with Vika in doubles. I hate when she is with her as it means my fave player and my most hated play together..i am not sure who I want to win :confused:

I am guessing Maria will be playing on Tuesday, as she isn't playing tomorrow. They should of put one of her matches on tomorrow though (either her singles or doubles, unfortunate she has to play both the same day, but anyway that's how draws work...they can't always favor us):sad:

Not sure; her serve looked great in Hong Kong; noticed she started to stretch her right shoulder a lot late in her final singles match. She had a sore shoulder in the past. Remember it was 40 degrees or colder and she was serving all out. didn't serve well in her last match and I thought her serve was one of the biggest improvements of late. She will never admit it now, but perhaps later.

What the hell are you doing Maria? Maria broken for 5-7 2nd set at 15-40. :( Win it in 3 Maria. The match is 1 hour 58 minutes long.

Her opponent may be a major clay court pusher. check the stats for her opponent 0 winners and 0 unforced errors. Maria probably losing her patience or her head is somewhere else or something physical is bothering her.

Smart move by Kirilenko. Took time out--perhaps either bathroom break to change clothes or trainer. But, unfortunately, the trainer is with Jimmy.

Nah...only some courts (I think just the tv courts) have real winners and unforced errors counts.

that's correct. Now that i think about it, you may be correct about the shoulder (we can only assume as fans), when i saw her at sydney against cibulkova she was holding her shoulder 3-4 times during the match before serving, might be a worry factor..but hopefully it isn't something serious.

Thank god Maria pulled through in the end! It would of been heartbreaking if she lost after having those match points.

She'll really have to step it up against Benesova who won easily today.

She has a day off tomorrow, rest up and come out firing on Thursday :armed:

I told you that Oprandi could be annying but i wasn't expecting that kind of match.At least she won and managed to stay focused in the 3rd after having missed a MP, so it's positive. She will have a day off tomorrow to rest and even if Benesova won easily today, Maria can beat her.
