Domachowska hopes to have a "fun" match against best friend, Maria Kirilenko
In a press confernece today, Marta Domachowska of Poland was somewhat disappointed with her draw as she has never beaten Maria Kirilenko. She's also very good friends and her doubles partner.
"Maria is a great player and very sweet. I think people misunderstand her shyness for rudeness. We met in the Amelia Island final and a few times. I had chances in each match but she was mentally stronger each time. Hopefully I can come up on top this time."
Despite losing somewhat early in the US Open, Marta hopes that her win over Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo will bring her some confidence and carry her through the upcoming weeks.
"It should be a great contrast of styles. I rely on my power but she's very fast and has great angles. We'll see what happens!"
