Re: Moscow | Kremlin Cup

not the easiest draw for kiri, tough quarter

vesnina is a tricky opponent and is in a good shape at the moment

it's their third meeting, maria won both matches in three sets

btw., what a lovely pic

If Maria beats Elena, her R2 could be very tough too...

Re: Moscow | Kremlin Cup

Does anyone (perhaps someone who knows Russian) know what Maria sometimes says after she wins a big point? I don't mean "Davai!" -- I understand that one. It looks like "Nishu" or "Misho" or something hopefully similar. Elena Dementieva used to say it a lot as well after she won a point.

Thanks in advance if you can help me out here!

...and what does that mean?

btw., kiri and nadia won their doubles match against the pliskova twins, but it was a really close one. They won the first set after 0-3* down 6-4, lost the 2nd 4-6 and eventually won it in the super tiebreak, 11-9....puhhh

next are Lee-Waters/Moulton-Levy from the USA, DAVAI!!

Re: Moscow | Kremlin Cup

Yes, that must be it! I think the "Ot" part is not stressed sometimes, so it sounds more like "lichno".

MaKiri rulezzz: looked it up on an old thread called "Otlichno" on the forum -- it means "excellent".

Thanks MK Ultra, I've been wondering what it was for a while.

Yikes. They really are just squeaking by in every match. I assume Maria is not close to 100%. Their American rivals for the YEC are clearly playing better at this point, so those rooting for Maria not to qualify could get their wish soon. But I think it'd be great if they can still pull this off.

Re: Moscow | Kremlin Cup

ok, so nearly a perfect day for kiri, had groenefeld/peschke won their match against kops-jones/spears....but they wasted 3 mp's in the super-tiebreak, from 9-6 to 9-11

nice win for maria in singles, she played pretty well in the 2nd set

next is slava shvedova, it's their third meeting. Slava won 2 years ago on clay, but maria won 2009 in cincinnati, in two sets.

They will play as the 2nd match on the centre court tomorrow, DAVAI Maria!!!

in doubles, kiri/nadia had no problems in set 1, taking it by 6-1. Then they lost the 2nd set 3-6, and in the super-tiebreak they finally won 10-7! very close again, but a win is a win

well, kops-Jones/spears will have to win other two matches to go to istanbul now..

Re: Moscow | Kremlin Cup

Tough singles draw for Kiri. This is a much tougher field than Moscow had in 2010 when Maria last played there.

Time for Kiri and to split up as a doubles team but stay friends of course.

Re: Moscow | Kremlin Cup

Today was the first match i could watch this week... Maybe it's my fault...

She played without any energy . I don't know, but she wasn't herself today. Such a big wasted chance. Arvidson did nothing except keeping the ball in play, somehow this was enough. Wasted opportunity.
