3 months ago, she had a top 10 level in Moscow and now, she doesn't even have a top 100 level. I guess that the final in her city hurt her more than i thought:sad:

watchdogfish
Feb 14th, 2011, 12:44 PM
Same old story really, when is she ever going to get some consistency?

The worst part is that she didn't even look like she was trying today. Losing is fine but when it looks like she couldn't be bothered to be there...well it makes it difficult to be a fan :o

I really think she should become a doubles specialist. She has more chance of success there.

Protoss

Ugh. So very dissapointed in Maria to say the least. :(

ezone
Feb 14th, 2011, 01:14 PM
Obviously, she is a bit of a head case especially if many of you thought she wasn't trying. Not very professional. Perhaps, her dad should just pack his bags and go home. Let her handle things on her own. Imagine having to sit thru her match, or perhaps something isn't going right off the court in her life which is hurting her game on the court.

Did the Australian Open doubles burn her out. I thought she sometimes trained too much without sufficient recovery time.

Aren't there 32 seeds in IW? Maria will be seeded so she won't have to beat another seed.

Want a medal?

You know everything the best you decide

On the other thing I sent only one and I made it on purpose which one it was but damn fine whatever you must seriously now hate me if you found that one offensive.

Shockingly there was a time we liked each other :rolleyes:

Yah, there are 32 seeds in Indian Wells and they all have a 1st round bye. So if Maria wins her 2nd round match she would then face a seed in the 3rd round.

Ah right I was thinking only top 16 seeds get first round byes. Long day brain not working

Anyways I'll stay with my prediction Maria will win two matches at IW.
