Re: Maria to rule Canada - Toronto Thread

I'm actually feeling really positive about Toronto, I feel if Maria can be that 10% better she can score a big win over a top 10 or 20 player.

Most of the top 20 aren't even playing that well

Re: Maria to rule Canada - Toronto Thread

I am still upset at her having to qualify now But her game does seem to be coming together nicely, just a matter of time before she gets some big wins. Hopefully anyways.

That's all cause of the first half of the season.
She has nothing to defend now till her title from Seoul.
If she can qualify and won't get a draw to play top 10 in the first 2 rounds, it can be a nice tournament.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: Maria to rule Canada - Toronto Thread

She playing better, but she has to sort her serve out. Something that probably requires a coach.

Re: Maria to rule Canada - Toronto Thread

Tricky draw for Maria, she will play Malek then if she wins the winner of Brito/Kvitova

Her serve is not great but I don't think its too bad if you're going by the Jankovic match well.. she is pretty good at breaking serve to make up for her own crappy serve.

qualifier vs Stephanie Dubois (I hope so)
qualifier vs Samantha Stosur
qualifier vs Flavia Pennetta (12)
qualifier vs Kaia Kanepi
qualifier vs Ana Ivanovic (11) (No just no)
qualifier vs Daniela Hantuchova

There is also two qualifier vs qualifier spots in the main draw

Dubois? Why would you want Maria to play her again? Maria choked to Dubois when they played in Canada and I believe choked to Dubois again in their next match but Dubois choked it back for Maria to win.

I might want Maria to play Kanepi if Maria does indeed qualify.

Out of those listed besides the Q v Q matchup/s yes it's what I want, It might toughen Maria up to beat Dubois on her home turf

But I can deal with Kanepi if that happens

Re: Maria to rule Canada - Toronto Thread (Q Draw Post #1)

Kanepi or Ana please Or a q v q match.!
But 1st lets deal with this difficult Qualifiers draw.
Won't be easy to get through...but if she does it will give Maria good confidence to take on hopefully Kanepi or Ana in 1st round

Good luck Maria v Malek

Cirstea Kirilenko Goerges Ivanovic Cibulkova Petkovic
Paszek - Vesnina - Minella - Gajdosova - Robson - Pennetta
