wonder if Maria will play dubs with Vika here? If so, they should be the favorites to win.

Indeed I miss Kiri too, 1 month without her on the tour looks like an eternity :tears:

Fortunately she's back next week :D

After having deserved rest, lots of fun at Lena's wedding, and hard training, she's going to be stronger than ever :cool:

Not lucky with the line up, first unseeded player... But Azarenka, Sharapova and Bartoli apart, the other seeds are beatable for Maria I guess. Anyway you never know. Lisicki and Williams are also fearsome...

Hopefully Maria is playing doubles with Vika, it's been such a great team :worship:

Come on Makiri :cheer:

I don't get this. Last year in Rome and Stanford she had Oprandi and lucic in the first round respectively. This year, with a better ranking, she gets Petkovic and Goerges first.

Horrible draw. She's got nothing to lose, but WHY???:bigcry:

Would you like to become a cinema actress after your tennis career ?

In fact I remenber an interview on Eurosport where Barbara Schett was joking with Kirilenko/Olga Kurylenko about James Bond girl. Maria would be an amazing russian spy James Bond girl :inlove: :hearts: (I don't know how she could perform as a real actress though and if she would be interested of course)

Didn't get to see her singles matches but I hear she played quite well.

Nikkiri
Jul 29th, 2011, 05:55 AM
She did play well.. Serena really dropped her level allowing Kiri to take the 2nd set but Kiri has lost to players playing far worse than that. Serena's game is just too much for Kiri she has to do so much just to stay in the point, so I think today she did really well. She would be beating most players playing the way she did. Lets hope for a little more luck in San Diego.

I'm so proud of her though, even though it is an almost impossible task she kept giving it all she could. As a fan what more can you ask?

kirivanovic
Jul 29th, 2011, 09:35 AM
Happy that she won a set.I left after the 1st set as it was too late here and she couldn't do nothing. Williams needed 1 or 2 shots to end a point without even moving when Maria needed a lot more shots after big efforts to win 1 only point. Nice effort though and it's positive for the rest of the season.

Celeborn
Jul 29th, 2011, 09:42 AM
During the 1st set I thought it will be like always, Kiri fights but Serena plays well and is just too good. But then Serena's level dropped a bit and Maria played really good at times, using dropshots, the converted break point was a great one. But honestly its still a long way to actually get the win, but no shame in this. Lets just hope for better luck with the draws and then I'm sure she can do something positive.

Remix13
Jul 29th, 2011, 10:36 AM
I saw the match and Maria did well considering it was Serena on the other side, I really enjoyed seeing Masha winning 2nd set with good tennis :D. Versus most of players outside top 5-10, Maria would have won I think.

She seems in good form and with a bit more luck she could do very well on hard court season. Next week at San Diego she's seeded, great opportunity for her ;)

Good luck for dubs :cheer:
