I hope I get to see her in action on Tuesday! And of course I hope she does well.

Her doubles quarter looks interesting too, first match against Cornet/Parmentier.

Not a bad singles draw for Maria. :)

Good luck in singles and doubles Maria. :)

I hope she doesn't do a Zvonareva and starts focusing more on doubles than singles:( She needs to start complementing her ranking otherwise it becomes fairly easy to fall outside the top 25. You can do it Kiri..composure! :)

Too bad! That'll mean I'm going to watch her doubles game tomorrow, if it is scheduled.

So sad and angry :(. Will this ever end? Of course, at 5:4 every desperate shot of schia.. is on the line, at 5:5 at one break point she just got a racket on the ball, of course its in. But Masha had enough chances anyway. Never should lose such a match.

In the future could you please indicate whether games are holds or breaks? It would make it easier to tell that's happened in the match. Thanks. :)

:help:

how can you lose this maria? :bigcry:
so many break points (converted just 3 of 17!!!!) , especially in the 3rd set....for example at 3-1 she had 2 bp's for 4-1....then a break- and matchpoint at 5-3

and she still didn't win..

well, I am not just disappointed, I am ruined :sad:

Maria keeps finding ways to lose to Schiavone. :rolleyes: No doubt the difference between these 2 fine all court players was in the head and heart. Schiavone has the heart of a champion that cannot be questioned.

Makiri has wasted her fine start to 2012 with her recent poor play. :mad:

Can someone explain to me why Maria who is mediocre on grass courts was not playing Birmingham and the weak field there?

Sad but true. Makiri may be going soft on us. Her last 2 losses to Klara at the French Open and against Fran today are 2 of the worst and toughest losses of her career. :eek: There is no escaping that or what the damage those 2 crushing losses have done to Maria's already fragile confidence and lack of self belief. I do not want to see Kiri become the whipping girl or punching bag for WTA players. She really needs to hire a real coach and get back to work instead of working at being fabulous which she is.

right, and don't forget the loss to knapp at estoril...that was terrible as well :sad:
I am also afraid that those tough losses she had lately will have a negative influence on her confidence...
as you said, she really has to change something, she definitely had the game to win those matches we are talking about...she simply couldn't close them out, it's just a mental problem.

... when she is about to win a match, there must start a process or something in her head which hinders her game...:help:

... when she is about to win a match, there must start a process or something in her head which hinders her game...:help:Alot of Maria's losing is mental. In the end it is Kiri's fault for these losses and for not maximizing her potential as a tennis player. Sure she is having a nice career making the top 20 in singles and the top 10 in doubles but with her skill level should should have done more than that to this point in her career. And no singles titles for Makiri since 2008? Come on that is ridiculous. Melanie Oudin who hasn't done anything on the WTA Tour in almost 3 years won her first WTA singles title in Birmingham today at age 20. Oudin does not have half the natural talent Maria does. She looked washed up at 20 and now she wins a title. :rolleyes: Good for her but Maria is 25 years old she needs to send her parents back to Moscow or wherever they live and travel with a real tennis coach for a couple of years so people aren't here in a few years saying Masha wasted her talent. her aprents are the problem. Maria keeps them working for her to keep the money all in the family. Nice gesture on her part but it's a bad idea for Maria's career.

It's funny (despairing in fact) how we have exactly the same discussions here every week :help:

I'd prefer it would be some discussions about Maria's victories but it seems unlikely :lol:

...at least, we still can discuss about her victories in doubles,
kiri and nadia beat cornet/parmentier 6-2 and 6-0 :)

they will play against Govortsova/Minella in the quarter-final

I actually felt sorry for Cornet and Parmentier today as I watched it live this afternoon. It was very, very one sided.
Wish it was more of a match, to be honest. Really awesome tournament, by the way.

Besides that, I had the fortune of sitting next to Kiri's dad, Ovechkin and Nadia's coach! :D

It was! At first I didn't realize it was Ovechkin.. A Dutch guy came up and asked Kiri's dad to take a picture of him and Ovechkin and then it clicked!

Afterwards a guy approached me with the question if I could take a pic of him and Maria, and in return he'd take one of me with her. We asked but she said no because she was busy eating a banana so no success on that department.

I took some pics with my mobile phone, so no super quality nor any close ups since zooming in didn't really work. Should've brought my good camera but alas, too lazy to carry extra stuff. I'll upload them tomorrow after I sort out the good ones and check them on a bigger screen. I'm no good at taking pictures ;)

A funny anecdote; Ovechkin was cheering Maria on.. in Spanish by saying 'vamos Maria'.

nice, thx for your report :)
so she was too busy with her banana? :lol: :banana:

no prob, it doesn't matter if your pics aren't of super quality, every pic of kiri is worth to watch ;)

btw. kiri and nadia just won their quarterfinal 7-5 and 6-1 :D

in the semi final they will play against pennetta/schiavone or begu/niculescu :cheer:

My pleasure! Now I want to visit more tournaments. Great experience :)
I think they'll meet Errani and Vinci in the final, again! If so, I do hope they win this time. A good prep for Wimbly.

Here ya'll go:

thanks for your pics, firebee! :cool:

the court (stadium) seems to be quite small, but so you had a great view ;)


...kiri and nadia have to play against an italian pair for a place in the final: pennetta/schiavone


Court #2 (from 11.00hrs)
1. ATP: Ito vs. Paire
2. ATP: Malisse/Norman vs. Cabal/Tursunov (NB 14.30hrs; after suitable rest)
3. Pennetta/Schiavone vs. Kirilenko/Petrova (NB 16.30hrs; after suitable rest)


...I hope they can win, DAVAI girls :cheer:

..and guess which pair would await in the final...right....errani/vinci :lol:

Yeah, it was a small court. Besides Centre Court and Court 1, all were quite small.

Lol, so Kiri will meet Schiavone again. This time I think she'll win even though Schiavone seems in form as I saw them beating Bertens/Rus yesterday.

Jun 23rd, 2012, 02:11 AM
ok, so we had a lot of rain delays lately in s-hertogenbosch :rolleyes:

as pennetta/schiavone had to retire, we do have kiri/nadia in the final :bounce:

they are going to play in the afternoon/evening, after nadia has got some rest after her win in the singles ;)

Centre Court (from 12.00hrs)
1. ATP: Ferrer vs. Petzschner
2. Singles Final: Nadia Petrova vs. Urszula Radwanska (NB 14.30hrs)
3. Doubles Final: Errani/Vinci vs. Kirilenko/Petrova (after suitable rest)

so yet another chance to take revenge on errani/vinci, go get them girls!! DAVAI :cheer:
