R1 against Marino
R2 Paszek or Halep

Julia is the seed in her section again. So It's a nice draw. Let's just hope she plays well. Has quite a few points to defend from now till the end of the season. Needs some deep runs.

I am a bit worried about Paszek. She has been on a hot streak.

I think there is a good chance Kiri will skip doubles.
If she insists on playing, I hope she chooses Cirstea :)

She is defending champ in doubles so maybe she will play with Zheng again.

Well, Zheng has been playing dubs with Peng this year and Peng is in San Diego.

Yeah, lets not underestimate Paszek, but other than that its nice I think. A quarter for starters would be nice and than maybe even more ;)

Well we've seen worse draw for Maria, she is not unlucky this time. 2nd round vs normally Pazsek could be more dangerous though (has Pazsek played good tournamanents since Wimbledon ?) A 3rd round vs Goerges should be interesting to see if Maria could confirm her win at Stanford. Anyway she definitely has a chance to run deep in this tournament.

Come on Makiri :cheer:

Paszek had a lot of trouble winning against Dubois last night; i think it was the longest match of the year, and she had an ugly gash on her foot so who knows maybe she'll not even play at all in SD.:shrug:
I'm really liking Kiri's coach determination. His mentality is a great asset for Kiri to do better on the tour. This week she won against the world n 16 and took a set off the greatest player of all time. So far, i love what i see from Jimy.

Chuang/Govortsova (TPE/BLR) v Hantuchova/Kirilenko (SVK/RUS)

Well dona Maria, 78 minutes lasted! Next up Paszek, who came from set down to beat Halep 0-6,6-4, 7-5. I think Halep served for a match in 3rd at 5-4. H2H not good, Maria lost all matches, in Auckland 2008. 6-1, 6-3, and at US open 1st round 2008. 6-3, 3-6, 6-4. But Tamira played two matches last week 3+ hours, and todays match lasted 2.32h, so there is a chanse for MaKiri to win it and go in 3rd round!

Hopefully Maria will reach QF on Friday so we could see her on livestream. Pazsek is next, it will be tougher I think but I'm sure Maria will destroy her :devil:

TennisView Magazine:

Kirilenko says she felt pain in her left leg landing in the court after serving, so she had it taped after the 1st set. There was about 10-15 minutes break after 1st set. :(

It was updated by a french guy but i don't think that they have a lot of contacts, so i guess it's hard for him to write exclusive contents or interesting stuff that we don't already know. If i remember well, this guy has an account here,so maybe he could tell us more. That's too bad because i love her diaries :lol:

Glad that she seems to be fine:)

"I was happy with my serve. I've been trying to improve my speed on the serve and it's getting better," Kirilenko said. "Of course she hit some aces today but I played well on my returns. I was hitting some good drop shots too."
Also, Julia lost to Stephens, lets hope Kiri can take advantage of this draw and go to QFs here!
