I'll try to put my fun face on but I'm negative by nature and see the glass half empty instead of half full.

Kiri is playing well on grass courts this year and she has a huge match to play tuesday against Radwanska. I have said for years that Kirilenko should be a fine grass court player because her athletic skill set even without much power or a big serve is suitable to what players need for grass court success.

I know Maria is a very good doubles player but I'd like to see her play only singles in some tournaments so she can sometimes just concentrate on singles and not have doubles to fall back on.

Very true about how Maria had her best year in 2008 when she had a real tennis coach and not just her daddy or boyfrined helping her out. There is no doubt Maria is having a good career having made the top 20 in singles and top 10 in doubles. But her skill level, great hands, all court game and shot making ability tell me she should have done more to this point than she has. All in all I think that Maria has slightly under acheived in singles and doubles to this point in her career. I don't care that she lacks weapons and power and does not hit a heavy ball. Aga Radwanska lacks the same things and she's in the top 5 with less God given talent than Maria has. Maria had a terrible clay court season. I hope she can get fired up to play well on the grass. Kiri's footwork, flexibility and balance are so good she should do well on grass but she never does.

I agree 100% she does need a coach and a good one. Somebody who will tell her all thing s she really does not want to hear.."Stop trying to be a baseliner you dont have the game etc" The loss to Zakopalova showed this. Maria's game is and all rounder like Domi or Kimiko
