Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

Nobody opened it yet? it seems I'll have the honour.
This is Kiri's half of the draw:


Quote:
[6] Li Na - Medina Garrigues Anabel
Mattek-Sands Bethanie - Dominguez Lino Lourdes
Maria Tatjana - Q
Vandeweghe Coco - Shvedova Yaroslava [27]

[23] Zakopalova Klara - Kanepi Kaia
Voegele Stefanie - Watson Heater
Barty Ashleigh - Hradecka Lucie
Bratchikova Nina - Kirilenko Maria [12]
Not that bad if you ask me, but of course I won't make any prediction about it, let's see what happen step by step.
First round against Bratchikova, never seen her playing but a reporter in GM told me that she likes to hit winner, being kinda erratic... theorically the best match-up for Maria, I'd say.

MK ~ GM ~ MS ~ VA ~ EM ~ SK ~ CG ~ YW ~ TP ~ EV ~ LR

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

Not that bad, don't screw it Masha !

She has a revenge to take on Zakopalova. Do you think this match will be either on Lenglen court or more likely on small courts. I would be pissed off if it's on Chatrier (wont happen lol) of more likely on court 1...

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

Actually I think that Kanepi will win R1, she's 2-0 against Klara, in a great form and clay is her best surface.

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

Nice draw, but I see her out in R3 against Kanepi (unless she gets injured, which is quite possible).

Remix, are you going to watch Maria?

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

Finally, it's time for the 2nd Grand Slam of the year! Can't wait

I do agree with you, Kiri's draw could have been much worse...
some other seeded players got a very tricky R1, for example: Wozniacki [10] vs. Robson, Makarova [22] vs. Kuznetsova, Jankovic [18] vs. Hantuchova...

First of all, Kiri's knee must hold, then she should reach R3. There she most likely would face Kanepi then. But also Kanepi has to beat Zakopalova and/or Watson first...Once Maria got over that R3 hurdle, a lot could be possible..
but as always, let's just see from round to round, step by step

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

I'm going to Roland Garros for the first round (26th to 28th May) I'm so impatient to see Kiri again. Her R1 seems "easy" but every first match in a slam isn't, so davai kiri

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

Looking at her match against her former compatriot Bratchikova (who now plays for Portugal)-- she should get by her, but should be 100% focused during this match. Nina reached the 3rd round here last year, and no doubt is hungry to defend those points.

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

MaKiri will play on Court 1 (not bad), it's the last match scheduled on it.

yeah, so her match will be streamed! I guess it will only begin in the late evening, as there are two ATP matches before hers...
Here the whole OOP of Court 1:

PHP Code:
11:00 AM    
    
Kimiko Date
-Krumm (JPN)
vs.
Samantha Stosur (AUS) [9]
    
Florent Serra (FRA)
vs.
Nikolay Davydenko (RUS)
        
Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) [9]
vs.
Thiemo De Bakker (NED)
    
Nina Bratchikova (POR)
vs.
Maria Kirilenko (RUS) [12
It's Kiri's first meeting with Nina Bratchikova.
Bratchikova currently is no. 107 in the rankings. She didn't win a match in the maindraw since the Pattaya Open. There she reached the SF, after wins over Peer, Hantuchova (ret.)and Morita. She lost to Lisicki in straights then.
Sounds easy, but a first round in a Grand Slam never is...
DAVAI KIRI

It will probably rain so I'm not sure Maria will play today.

Re: Maria in Paris - Roland Garros 2013

Tough draw for Maria.

Good luck Maria.

Peter: They're us, that's all, when there's no more room in hell.
Stephen: What?
Peter: Something my granddad used to tell us. You know Macumba? Vodou. My granddad was a priest in Trinidad. He used to tell us, "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth."
