I just hope she's done with her injury and she will beat the Q. Could be a nice match against Schiavone ;)

Davai Masha :cheer:

Kiri's game against Schiavone is just no good. But here's to hoping she wins A match. Q draw is quite strong.

If she's not at 100% against Schiavone, she has no chance as she would need at least 2 hours to beat her in straight sets. But 1st,she needs to beat the qualifier.

Kiri's match is the 2nd match after 11am on Court 10.

I hope the organizer give Kiri a GPS unit so that she can find the court. :help:

The next step is to schedule Kiri's matches on an improvised court in a potatoe field in middle of nowhere ;)

Anyway, even if she's playing in the most remote tennis court in the world, I will always support her. Davai Maria :cheer:

I'm not a big fan of chinese girls, Maria will have to run a lot to win,so it would be a good preparation for Schiavone.

Well it's a joint tournament she isn't seeded and is playing a qualifier, hardly gonna put her on centre court or grandstand. :lol: Anyways good luck. Last time she played Zhang she won easily. Lets hope for more of the same.

Still hard to forget yesterday cruel defeat, but the tournament continues for Maria in doubles even if it's a small consolation :sad:

Makiri and Nadia won 6-4 7-5 against Goerges/Kuznetsova. Today they're facing Grandin/Uhlirova, it seems winnable.
