Hmm, playing Vesnina first in Moscow, which could be tough. Although Maria has beaten her twice.

I hope Maria plays well in Moscow, both singles and doubles..I'm kinda worried about her results atm tbh...the US Open was a disappointing result, and Beijing was horrible too. Hoping her injury isn't too serious.

Re: Maria returns to action in Beijing :)

Yes, she is playing Moskow, probably singles and doubles. Nadia and Maria are very close in qualifying for the doubles YEC, it would be stupid not to try being so close. But in principle I'm totally with you, she should skip doubles for the next few years from 2013 onwards. Azarenka did it this year and look how much her results in singles improved.

And our Masha can win her doubles slam anytime at the end of her career.

Is Kiri playing Moscow? If so she should only be playing singles. Time for Kiri to focus on singles in 2013 so she can make a real run at the top 10. Kiri and Nadia are a good doubles team but they struggle in finals and big matches. I would just as soon have Maria rest up and then start training for 2013 rather than work so hard to make the doubles YEC. But I know most posters here want Kiri in Istanbul so I hope you get your way. But part of me would rather have to resting up for 2013. I think Kiri played so much tennis during the summer that she's worn out in the fall.

Exactly. Clearly they're one of the top 4 teams and it would be ridiculous if they didn't make it.

They're up 322 now, but they don't play this week and in Osaka that other team is No. 1 seed and could get up to 280 points or even 200 for just the final, and be a lot closer headed to Moscow (though I have no idea whether the other team plays Moscow or Luxembourg.)

they just won 50 of 117 points (43%), but again they saved 71% of the bp's (5 of 7)

so will they play doubles in moscow too?

Re: Maria returns to action in Beijing :)

The match was really close. It's only doubles but I guess it's good for Maria's confidence.
