Indian Wells is the first tournament Maria has won since I joined the board. It's good feeling all of the positive post-victory vibes around here. Everyone believes Maria can go out and conquer the world now.

Re: Miami 2013: Hometown Glory?

I really like the draw! I hope she won't meet the same players again though (Zakopalova, Kirilenko, Errani)! IW-Miami double is very difficult and I'm already so happy she won IW, so a SF showing would be great, unless Vika is her opponent!

Re: Miami 2013: Hometown Glory?

Dream scenario for the WTA would be Serena/Petra, Maria/Vika. Serena seems like the biggest lock since she's so well rested. I'm assuming her ankle is back to 100% too. Petra definitely raised concerns again with that implosion against Kirilenko. But if she can somehow keep her head on straight, she can get there. She had been playing so well until that second set. Vika's prospects are all about the ankle. If it lingers, she can lose earlier than expected(or withdraw). If it's well enough, she should cruise to the semis. I think Maria's biggest worry is her mental and physical freshness after playing thoes 6 matches. None of them went the distance though, so I don't believe Maria was too taxed. And she did do the IW/Miami double as far as reaching the final last year, so stamina shouldn't be an issue this year. Barring a surprising result, Maria should be in the semis.

Now watch upsets galore happen.

Re: Miami 2013: Hometown Glory?

Masha may very will retain her Stuttgart title with neither Rena, Vika or Aga in the draw


not that I hope for things like this to happen, I want Masha to face tough opponents all the time to justify title wins

Agree completely, although I'd swap Petra with Venus . Lord help the WTA and its credibility if Vika shows up and plays a few rounds only to withdraw again before an anticipated match. And I watched Petra's complete collapse at IW (I showed up to the match when she was up 4-2 in the second ), so wouldn't be surprised with another disappointing result. Aga seems to have the toughest road, and watching her lose a lot of points (and drop in rankings hopefully) will be satisfying. Would love Petra/Li to replace her at #4 soon

Damn, why is nobody showing up to Stuttgar?! . One of the things I loved the most last year was the field being so packed. Oh well, I would be happy with Maria vulturing her way to another Porsche

Also, Petra needs to rise in the rankings so she's a Top 4 seed there

I'd love to see her winning Stuttgart again! Great tournament! It's going to be tough to get past all the Germans though!

Zakopalova and Maria are always drawn in the same half! So true Craig!

Re: Miami 2013: Hometown Glory?

Maria's draw isn't particularly hard, but a little bit of variety would've been nice. I mean Kirilenko and Errani again? Blah.

This . Hope they get taken out early so Maria can face a different style

There's no need to justify title wins. If others don't play it's their own choice and not Maria's problem.
