Hastings Direct International Championships in Eastbourne

Welcome to the thread to discuss all things Makiri in Eastbourne. Here`s the main draw:

(1)HENIN, Justine vs BYE
RADWANSKA, Agnieszka vs QUALIFIER
(WC)KEOTHAVONG, Anne vs QUALIFIER
STOSUR, Samantha vs (5)VAIDISOVA, Nicole

(4)DEMENTIEVA, Elena vs BYE
BARDINA, Vasilisa vs QUALIFIER
(WC)MOLIK, Alicia vs (WC)SOUTH, Melanie
GARBIN, Tathiana vs (8)BARTOLI, Marion

(7)LI, Na vs KIRILENKO, Maria
SAFAROVA, Lucie vs GROENEFELD, Anna-Lena
DECHY, Nathalie vs MORIGAMI, Akiko
BYE vs (3)PETROVA, Nadia

(6)PEER, Shahar vs QUALIFIER
BAMMER, Sybille vs REZAI, Aravane
SUGIYAMA, Ai vs SANTANGELO, Mara
BYE vs (2)MAURESMO, Amelie


This is the second time this year that Makiri has Na Li in the first round. However i feel good about her chances, especially after the showing in Birmingham. If Makiri can beat Na Li, then i think she has a good chance of making a nice run, especially since the other ladies in her portion of the draw aren`t exactly the best grass court players and the highest seed there, Nadia Petrova is just coming back from a back injury. So i wish Makiri good luck in Eastbourne. Go get them girl!

Re: Hastings Direct International Championships in Eastbourne

Wow!! Such a hard draw for Maria! Li, Safarova and Petrova just to make the quarters.

If she plays like she did against Jankovic this week, I think she has an opportunity to do well though.

Re: Hastings Direct International Championships in Eastbourne

Na Li obviously must`ve pulled out. I think this is a tossup matchup, although i don`t know how good Sybille is on grass. Hopefully Makiri can get the tournament off to a good start with a win.

Re: Hastings Direct International Championships in Eastbourne

Makiri should seriously consider switching to tier IIIs. Otherwise she will keep struggling at winning two matches in a row.
