Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

So Makiri starts her season off with a win, and evens her h2h against Olivia!

Errani or Karo Pliskova next.

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Kiri starts with a win! YEAHHHHHHH

I was out last night and came back home right in time to see the match. I tried to see the whole match, but I got so tired after a while that I fell asleep
Apparently at the wrong moment, it was 4-5 1st set, and Kiri won 9 of 11 games after that

good luck for the next round maria!

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Makiri faces Sara Errani next, and Sara leads their h2h, 3:1. Makiri won their last meeting however, at the 2011 USO.

I'm kinda worried about this match, she has to play better than R1 if she wants to stand a chance of winning.

not US Open, but US Open series
Errani lost 5-7 and 5-7 to Kiri at New Haven

I don't have the best feelings about this match either, it's a difficult matchup for Maria.
She will have to play her best tennis to win this...anyway, it should be a good test before the Australien Open

Kiri plays her match on the Grandstand, at 11:00 AM (local time)
..so it should be at 01:00 AM CET?

btw: Maria also won her first doubles match of the season, with her new partner Lisa Raymond! 7-5 and 6-4 vs. Erakovic/Makarova

Re: Australian summer-start of 2013!

Errani is a good early season test for Makir and so far Kiri is failing the test big time as Errani leads 6 - 1 - 1 - 0. It's a shame Maria has such a bad record against great defensive players and counter punchers like Errani, Jankovic, Wozniacki and Radwanksa. They are all more consitent than Maria is Maria has a hard time getting the ball past them. Now ro be fair to Kiri she is not in form yet and she did not properly prepare for Oz and the heat there and I surmise that her lack of form is being taken advantage of by Errani. But still Maria should be punishing Errani's serve shouldn't she?

You and other Kiri fans have reason to be nervous about Maria playing Errani so early in the season because Errani is routing an unprepared for battle Maria 6 - 1 4 - 1. This is unacceptable. Losing to Errani is one thing but getting routed by her in inexcusable. Kiri needs to atleast make it a a closer second set. Why isn't she stepping inside the baseline and using her greater power to hurt Sara? Errani is one of the few top 50 players on the tour who Kiri can clearly outhit.
