2014 Summer Hard Court Season before US Open

So....is Kiri playing any tournaments before US Open???

She usually plays Stanford but I don't see her name listed under MD, QD or WC.
Oh, it's because she'll now play in her "back yard" at Washington MM? Nope. Not there either.
Surely she is playing in Rogers Cup? nope.
Waiting on Cincinnati QD list or WC but I'm starting to lose hope.

Meanwhile on her instagram, she is going to motor racing event, rock concerts, figure skating shows...

is she DONE???

Re: 2014 Summer Hard Court Season before US Open

I'm thinking she's injured again.

Francine Parker: What the hell are they?
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."

Re: 2014 Summer Hard Court Season before US Open

Someone a few days ago called her on GM a "semi-retired soon to be married journey-woman". A fitting definition, it seems. :\

^ I will be devastated, but I don't think that's on the horizon yet. She had a great win at Wimbledon.

Sasha and Masha haven't been seen together recently.
Neither mentions the other on twitter. No pics together on their instagram accounts.
There were supposed to get married this summer...

That sure looks like another engaged couple with a Wta player that won't actually make it to the alter.

Re: 2014 Summer Hard Court Season before US Open

I think she will be gone by the end of this season. She spends more time goofing around at the Bolshoi etc than she does on court. I dont think she has any drive left, no ambition. She got her Olympic medal and made the top ten. She had the legs to beat Stephens in R1 Wimby, nothing left against Peng. I doubt if she will get past R1 at the USO. Unless she gets her act together she will need WC's and Qualies. This really is depressing.

Re: 2014 Summer Hard Court Season before US Open

Maria Kirilenko officially announced the termination of engagement with hockey player Ovechkin
"I have decided to terminate the engagement, - said Maria. - There are many reasons, but do not want to go into details.'ll Say one thing: our relationship completed, but I respect Sasha as a person and athlete and I sincerely wish him continued athletic success."

"I am currently also focused on preparing for the next tournament and I hope that will soon be able to please their fans news, not only about his personal life, but also about his athletic success," - she added.

Re: 2014 Summer Hard Court Season before US Open

Well lets hope Maria can get over it quickly. She can do better anyway. Caro Wozniacki's break up was worse for her I think but she back with a bang.

Come on Maria! we are all rooting for you!

Hopefully she will focus mainly on tennis now, making a strong comeback and playing a full schedule (in 2015), if her body let her do so obviously.
That's what I wrote in GM, I add quite frankly that, even if her will is to make a comeback, it's easier said than done.
Her ranking is a total mess, she'd need to grind a lot of points (playing qualies too), no way that she can stay injury at all with all the matches she would have to play.
No surprise if ends her career at the end of this season.
