Grass is always green on Kiri's lawn
 
Bye bye red dirt, hello green/yellowish grass! :)

Looks like Kiri is taking next week off.
Then its UNICEF Open, ’s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands and Wimbledon.

What results will make Kiri fans happy?

If she doesn't lose against player ranked below her I would be quite happy :)

At least 1/4 in 's-Hertogenbosch, 1/2 would be great.

At least 1/16 in Wimbledon to defend her points. 1/8 would be a good performance, I really hope Maria could do this, the draw will be determinant. Anything better and Maria would be a tennis goddess in my eyes (is she already one ?) :worship:

First time I watched Kiri in Rosmalen she lost to Cirstea.
Then beat Olaru and lost to Flipkens.
So I'd say QF this year!

She always seems to struggle a bit on grass despite having a good all court game with beautiful volleys. Why do you guys think that is?

I think the fast pace grass courts give Kiri less time to retrieve balls.
Kiri does have a good volleys and net play. Perhaps serve and volley could be her secret weapon at Wimbledon. ;)

is that why Kiri was practicing them at Rome? :lol:

With her weak serve, she better not tries serve and volley:lol:

that requires one handed backhand slice. I'm not sure if that is part of Kiri's repertoire.

Maria Kiritilova :kiss:

Yes the first round seems harder than the possible 2nd round...

Is Kimiko really that good ?
