Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

The best match of her season by far, that's sure. 1st set was so intense, I'm glad she played so solid and took a great win in two.
The break point on 5-5 was pure class.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Good win for Kiri over Peng. Maria seems to be playing good all court tennis again after her heat related meltdown to Errani last week in Sydney.

Big third round match coming up for Masha. I would like to see her first serve % at 60% or higher in that match and in all her matches for that matter and not the 53% it was today. But from all reports she served well against Peng. Kiri was also 13 / 18 at the net in this match. She arguably has the best hands in women's tennis.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Watching the 1st 5 games. I thought Maria would never break Peng, who was hitting and returning with power. But Maria stuck to her task and the break points at 5-5 were as good as I have ever seen. Must be shots of the day!

Way to go!

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Next is Wickmayer, they never met each other. Probably a tight match but Maria has a chance to win.

We can say this match is like a final, since Serena is next.

Great job Maria.

Stupid Tennis Channel didn't show anything from this match despite the one-sideness of Vika's match.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Hard to beleive Kirilenko and Wickmayer have never played before. Yanina is huge and powerful but is happy to play her heavy topsin shots instead of being a pure power player. She will not try to overpower Maria the way most power players do so Masha should win this match with her far superior mobility and all court play. Kiri needs to avoid the third round dud that she suffered at the 2012 U.S. Open. Kiri needs to second week and a chance at Serena.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Hisense Arena, 11:00 AM Start (local time)
Women's Singles - 3rd Round
Maria Kirilenko vs. Yanina Wickmayer

don't miss it!
I won't, I will do like I did the rounds before: take a little nap and go up for 01:00 AM

not easy to say if it's a good matchup for Kiri or not, since it is their very first meeting!
..but if Kiri can play on that high level like she did in the 2nd set vs. Peng, then she has good chances to win it! DAVAI Maria!!

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Kiri is leading 3 -2 in the second set on serve. Tight match. Masha must stay strong because Wickmayer is a horse and won't get tired no matter how long this match takes.
