Hi everyone!

It has been a while since I wrote to you! Everything is going well! I had such a good week in Hong Kong! To be honest, it was a busy week.

Instead of playing, we had to do a lot of different stuff. Like meetings, see the fans, kids clinics, visiting sponsors etc. I always played an evening match. I had couple good matches and I won both ! So Russia won again for the second year in a row !!!

We such a fun mixed doubles with Evgeniy. I never would have thought that I’m going to play with my favorite player, even from when I was a kid!? I actually told Evgeniy that I’m ready to play mixed doubles at the Australian Open with him. He was laughing and told me that he will ask for a WC. But I guess it was a joke…

So after all of that, a few of us moved to Sydney. And next day, I had to play first match at 11 am. But I was dead tired, 3 hours difference by Hong Kong time meant it was 8 am, so no power and energy after a long flight. But I was prepared and I knew that’s its going to be like that. So for me was even better to get over jet-lag quickly!

Now I’m in the airport waiting for my flight to Melbourne. Thank you again to all of you for your support, it is really giving me some extra power and confidence!

Maria

10 burning questions with Maria Kirilenko
Wednesday, 19 January, 2011
By Matt Trollope
Favourite holiday spot?

Las Vegas ... I visited there last year in my off season, so far it's the best place.

Finish this sentence: "If I wasn't a tennis player, I'd be ..."

You never know. When I was small I was a ballet dancer ... I was doing both ballet dancing and tennis every day, two things in one day ... I'm happy I chose tennis, it's more useful!

Best moment on court?

When you're winning it's always the best memory, and when you're winning the tournament ... I have a good memory from last year (at the Australian Open) in the first round when I beat Sharapova on Centre Court, I think that's a good one as well.

What's your new year's resolution?

Actually when it's New Year you just make a wish, and I mean I did a wish, but nothing (I can say) for this (laughter).

What are you listening to on your iPod?

I have so many songs there, and I have a couple of favourites, I have Russian songs as well so it's so mixed. I like Lady Gaga, actually I was at the concert at the end of (last) year.

If you could pick any player from history to be your doubles partner, who would you choose?

Well I played once with Martina Hingis, and we won the tournament in Doha, so that was my dream to play with someone (like her) and it's happened (laughter).

Forehand or backhand?

Everybody's saying that my backhand is better, but I like to go and play forehand, you know, inside out, so I start to use this more.

Sweet or savoury?

Sweet.

Beatles or Rolling Stones?

I think Beatles.

Which actor would you get to play you in a movie about your life?

Hmm ... no idea! (laughter) Maybe, I don't know, Jessica Simpson?

Quote:
СОБЫТИЕ ДНЯ. ТЕННИС
AUSTRALIAN OPEN

Вчера россиянка Мария Кириленко проиграла во втором круге чешке Ивете Бенешовой (3:6, 1:6) и распрощалась с мечтой повторить свой прошлогодний успех – четвертьфинал.
«ДВИГАЛАСЬ ОТВРАТИТЕЛЬНО»

— Сильно огорчены тем, что не удалось защитить свой прошлогодний четвертьфинал?

— Больше всего расстроилась из-за того, что играла плохо, не показала того, что умею. Двигалась я сегодня отвратительно. Не знаю, может, не полностью удалось восстановиться после своего матча первого круга?

— Вас же по его ходу судороги одолевали. Но вы говорили, что это было чисто нервное.

— Ну, сегодня-то до судорог не дошло. Накануне я провела специально лишь легкую тренировку. Но во время длинных розыгрышей я все равно чувствовала, что ноги как-то слишком перенапрягаются. С такими каменными конечностями бороться с серьезными соперниками невозможно.

— Наверное, в глубине души уже прокляли январскую поездку в Гонконг, где выступали за сборную России в показательном турнире?

— Почему это?

— Потому что сошли в первом круге в Сиднее, имеете физические проблемы в Мельбурне.

— Нет, что вы, поездка в Гонконг была классной. Я выиграла два матча, что позволило нашей команде второй год подряд стать победителем турнира. Скорее ошибкой была моя поездка в Сидней. Мы прилетели туда в обед, а уже на следующее утро в 11 мне надо было выходить на корт. Не лучший вариант после десятичасового перелета. Плюс три часа разницы по времени.
«ТРЕНИРОВАЛАСЬ СО СВЕТЛАНОЙ ФЕОФАНОВОЙ»

— То есть к предсезонному подготовительному периоду у вас нет претензий?

— Абсолютно. Сперва я отлично отдохнула. Сначала в Москве, потом ездила в Лас-Вегас в первый раз в жизни. Ну что сказать — правильно его называют взрослым Диснейлендом. Завораживающее впечатление! Ну а потом уже я начала тренироваться. Там же, в Америке.

— А я слышал, что вы в межсезонье тренировались вместе со знаменитой легкоатлеткой, прыгуньей с шестом Светланой Феофановой...

— И это было.

— Неужели в США пересеклись?

— Нет, в московском манеже ЦСКА. Дело в том, что ее легкоатлетический тренер Евгений Бондаренко уже второй год является моим наставником по физической подготовке.

— С шестом прыгать не пробовали?

— Пробовала. Без планки, конечно. Просто разгонялась с шестом и висла на нем. Получалось неплохо. Тренер даже сказал, что если б я не была теннисисткой, то отлично бы прыгала с шестом. Говорит, что я для этого подходящим образом сложена.

— А в теннис в ответ Феофанову не научили играть?

— Научила. Еще в прошлое межсезонье! Ей было интересно. Хотя это не серьезная игра, безусловно, была, а так — баловство.

— Новый год вы встретили в Москве. Что было в тех красивых подарочных коробках, с которыми вы фотографировались под елкой для собственного сайта?

— Там была компьютерная приставка XBox, которую я заказала Деду Морозу. Правда, сейчас уже новая вышла — там не нужны джойстики, представляете? — кажется, Мария впервые проявила неподдельный интерес к разговору. — Короче, система тебя сканирует, и, к примеру, если тебе нужно в игре рулить автомобилем, то ты просто рулишь по воздуху руками. Просто супер!
«ГОТОВА СЫГРАТЬ С ШАРАПОВОЙ!»

— С вами уже связывались по поводу вашего участия в февральском четвертьфинальном матче на Кубок Федерации с француженками?

— Нет. К тому же я после Мельбурна играю еще турнир в Паттайе.

— Но теоретически-то вы сможете подъехать в Москву, если вас позовут?

— Провокационный какой-то вопрос. Даже и не знаю, что ответить.

— Что же в нем провокационного? Мне вот, например, Мария Шарапова призналась, что хотела бы играть на Олимпийских играх в Лондоне пару именно с вами. Пора наигрывать!

— Мы с Марией уже несколько раз играли пару, даже выиграли один турнир. Так что, думаю, при необходимости мы быстро восстановим взаимопонимание. Естественно, я тоже с удовольствием бы сыграла вместе с тезкой на Олимпиаде-2012.
НЕ ПРОПУСТИТЕ!

Сегодня на Открытом чемпионате Австралии пройдут следующие матчи третьего круга с участием российских теннисисток.

Первый запуск – 3.00 (мск)

Севастова (Латвия) – Манасиева (Россия)

Второй запуск

Энен (Бельгия, 11) – Кузнецова (Россия, 23)

Третий запуск

Гергес (Германия) – Шарапова (Россия, 14)
СМОТРИТЕ НА ТВ

Сегодня. Открытый чемпионат Австралии по теннису (прямые трансляции)

«НТВ–Плюс Теннис» – 2.55*, 10.55

«НТВ–Плюс Онлайн» – 2.55, 11.00

«Евроспорт» – 3.00, 5.00, 11.00

«Евроспорт 2» – 3.00, 5.00, 9.45, 11.00

Maybe some russians can give a better translation? I used google translate. Apparently Sharapova wants to play doubles with Kiri at the Olympics?

It would be a good opportunity for Maria to play the olympics because it won't be easy to be qualified for singles

You're right. The interviewer said that Sharapova told him she'd like to play doubles with Kiri. But this source is not very reliable. I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't true

I would rather have Kiri play with Zvonareva.
Big Masha is terrible at doubles!

OK. I will try to do it again.
So let's begin.

Quote:
The world #19 in WTA rankinkgs Maria Kirilenko: Now I jumping with a pole

Yesterday russian Maria Kirilenko has lost in the second round to czech Iveta Benesova and has said goodbye to dream to repeat the success of last year – a quarterfinal.

"My movements were awful"


- Are you very disappointed because of you could not to protect the last year's quarterfinal?
- The most disappointed because I played badly. I did not show what I can. My movements were awful today. I don't know why. Mayby I did not fully recover after my match in first round?

You had cramps in that match. But you said that it was just nervous.

- So today I did not have any cramps. The day before I have spent specially only easy training. But during the long rallies, I still felt that my legs a little too overwork. With such stone extremities to fight with serious competitors it is impossible.

— Probably you have already damned a January trip to Hong Kong where supported Russian national team in exhibition tournament?

- Why is that?

— Because you have lost in the first round in Sydney and you have physical problems in Melbourn.

- No, really, a trip to Hong Kong was cool. I won two matches, which allowed our team to win this tournament for the second year in a row. Rather my trip to Sydney was an mistake. We arrived there at lunch, and the next morning at 11 am I had to go to court. Not the best option after ten-hour flight. Plus three hours of a difference on time.

"TRAINED WITH Svetlana Feofanova"[/b]

- So you don't have blame about your pre-season training?

— Absolutely. At first I was perfectly rested. From the first I did it in Moscow and then went to Las Vegas for the first time in my life. What can I say? It is a true when people talking about this city such as a Disneyland for adult. Fascinating experience! And then I started to train. There, in America.

- I heard that you are trained together in the offseason with a famous athlete, pole vaulter Svetlana Feofanova ...

- Yes and this was too.

— Really in the USA you were crossed?

- No, in the Moscow CSKA arena. The fact that her athletics coach Yevgeny Bondarenko for the second year is my mentor in physical training.

- Did you try to jump with a pole?

- Tried. Without a lath, certainly. I was just overclocked with a pole and hung on it. It turned out not bad. The coach even has told that if I wouldn't be a tennis-player I would be perfect pole-vault. He said that I am combined in for this.

- Did you teach Feofanova to play in tennis for response?

- I teached her even a year ago. It was interesting for her. While this is not a serious game, it was just a overindulgence of course.

— You have celebrated a New year in Moscow. What was in those beautiful gift boxes with which you were photographed under a Christmas tree for your own site?

- There was a computer console XBox, which I ordered a Santa Claus. However, already new XBox is coming out - there is no need joysticks, can you imagine? - It seems that Maria has shown for the first time her genuine interest to conversation - In short, the system scan you and for example if tou need to drive car in the game - you can just drive it by moving your hands in the air. It is super!

"READY TO PLAY WITH Sharapova!"

- Did anybody from national team contacted with you already about your participation in the quarterfinal match at Fed Cup which will in the february with the French team?

- No. Besides after the Melbourne I will playing tournament in Pattaya.

- But theoretically, will you be able to drive to Moscow, if you will receive a call?

- Some provocative question. I even don't know what to say.

What provocative did you found in this question? For example Maria Sharapova already admitted to me that she want to playing doubles at the Olympic Games in London just with you. It's time to play!

-We with Maria already some times played doubles and even won one tournament. So, I think, if it will necessary, we will quickly rebuild mutual understanding. Naturally I would playing with the namesake with pleasure at the Olympic Games in 2012.
So I hope you will understand this better than from Google translater.

Re: Maria News And Articles

Maria Kirilenko was the top seed in action on Monday, and to say her match was unusual and dramatic would be an understatement.



The third seeded Russian swept the opening set against Italian Alberta Brianti 6-0, but then fell behind 5-0 in the second. Certainly Brianti was much more aggressive in the second set, but at least part of the reason for the huge turnaround was revealed when Kirilenko asked for the trainer. She received attention to her left leg, and when play resumed Kirilenko played her way back into contention.



She broke for 1-5, held for 2-5 while saving three set points, broke again for 3-5 and held for 4-5 saving another set point. But Brianti finally served out the set at her third attempt to claim it 6-4. In the final set, Kirilenko got the breakthrough she needed by breaking for 3-1 and she went on to take the set with ease, 6-2.



"In the second set she was hitting a lot of slice and I had to keep getting down very low. I have a problem with my knee and it began to hurt to I got the trainer to have a look," Kirilenko explained. äfter that I was able to play better again."

Maria Kirilenko still has tennis on her mind despite loss

Dubai: Glamour girl Maria Kirilenko feels she still has a lot to give to the game she loves despite yet another first-round exit at the Dubai Duty Free Women's Open here on Monday.
"I'm still not very old yet. I still have a few years to play for sure," Kirilenko told Gulf News after a fourth straight first round exit in Dubai.
After seven appearances in Dubai, Kirilenko has been losing in the first round since 2008. In 2005, she bowed out in the qualifying stages, while her best result came in 2006 where she made it to the quarter-finals only to lose to second seeded Lindsay Davenport.

"I am trying to find my game again because I feel that there's a little bit too many mistakes. I don't feel what to do," she admitted.
And she has not given up on Dubai. "I have very good memories from Dubai because a lot of time I come here just for practice. Especially three, four years ago when I was younger I came here just for two weeks' preparation," she disclosed.
Her record of the Tour is not too compelling either, having lost an amazing 36 first rounds since the start of the 2007 season. Now at 26 in the latest rankings released last Monday, Kirilenko's start to the season has not been all that heartening after yet another first round exit at the season-opening Sydney Open.

As a rising teenage star, Kirilenko launched the Stella McCartney tennis attire created especially for her just before the 2006 Australian Open.
Seeded No18 at the Australian Open, the 23 year old made it to the second round singles losing to Iveta Benesova. However, it was the doubles that Kirilenko flourished as she teamed up with Victoria Azarenka to reach the final. But in a final that witnessed an amazing turnaround, Kirilenko and Azarenka went down in three sets 6-2, 5-7, 1-6 to the Argentinean-Italian pair of Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pennetta.
"I think I played well at the beginning of the year, but then I lost in the Australian Open also playing bad," she recollected.
"However, everything is fine for me and in my mind there is still tennis," Kirilenko said.
