Yep, she's in the same 25-32 range as Kuznetsova. Maria can meet any of the following in the 3rd round
Maria playing Russian's has always been a huge relief to me tbh. All of them are her bitches, or one win away from being her bitches I think
she just LOVES beating them
Kuznetsova is great on clay. She'd probably take a set against Maria but fold like a cheap Decathlon tent the moment she realizes who's on the other side of the net. Maria can be VERY intimidating, especially when you start thinking of some of her stats and comebacks, especially the 3rd-set GOAT status
Sexlana would not be able to keep up with Maria's fight.
I'd like her to draw Barthel or Petrova. Big servers so she gets to practice her return before meeting the GOAT server in the later stages of the tournament
By the way, for the 4th round she'll meet one of the following
I want Ivanovic
please no Kirilenko
I hate that match-up
