Hmmm. Hope this isn't serious.

Tennis Channel showed maybe 1 minute of this match.

Re: Maria and the Koalas - AO 2012

I actually liked her play in the beginning. Its just that Kvitova is super strong, tall and on top of that also a lefty. I just hope she doesn't get frustrated and continues to play well. She needs a better ranking and chances to get one are still there in the next months. Seeing some other 3rd round matches she could easily got one or even two rounds further.

I'm not sure, but she wasn't exactly lucky in grand slams with her draws.

Where has Maria's variety been against Petra in their last 2 matches? Makiri has ernough variety of shots to keep Kvitova off balance, doesn't she? Her last 2 matches against Petra have been so one sided. Petra served great in both matches and Masha struggled mightily on serve against Kvitova. That's a bad combination to have.

It was alarming to see Maria retire down 0 - 6 - 0 - 1. Petra served very big and very accurately in thier last 2 matches and that may have crushed Maria's spirits and sort of intimidated Little Masha. I hope her thigh injury isn't too bad because it would ruin her start to the year.

I didn't really see either of these matches but maybe Maria just hasn't had time to use her variety due to Kvitova's pace.

Re: Maria and the Koalas - AO 2012

well Kiri has dropped the mixed dubs, lets hope she can continue on with Nadia. She has a ton of points to defend.

Re: Maria and the Koalas - AO 2012

I fell asleep before the beginning of the match... At least I didn't miss anything

And Maria is injured

You're probably right. According to the statistics in the last 2 Kirilenko / Kvitova matches Petra served great and dominated Maria with her big and accurate lefty serve and off the ground. Petra won all 7 games yesterday against Makiri but Makiri only made 3 UE's in 7 games. The problem was Petra only made 4 UE's in 7 games and had an amazing 20 winners in the 29 points she won to Masha's measly 4 winners in 7 games. Maria played okay for sure but if Kvitova brings her A game Maria has no chance. That's the reality of it. And then you factor in Maria's leg injury and she had to retire from the match.

Re: Maria and the Koalas - AO 2012

I left Melbourne as the doubles match was starting.. arrived in Sydney to see she had to retire after 3 games. I got to see her a lot though but vs Petra was the only match I couldn't see and she got injured. It's my fault.
