Re: Return of Kiri - US Open 2014 Edition.

Actually, even a 80yo grandmother would be a horrible draw for Kiri

I hope she's not injured anymore and that she will win a couple of games (at least a couple of points).

Maria Kirilenko

Re: Return of Kiri - US Open 2014 Edition.

Well, better to lose against Sharapova than to an "unknown" player.
What's positive: it will be played on a big showcourt I guess
But like Remix said, it's important that she is healthy (I hope she is) and then she could win a couple of games.
Let's see how she is doing, after her broke-up with Ovi..

a repeat of AO 2010 of course would be ..

Maria Kirilenko

...olympic bronze medalist...

Re: Return of Kiri - US Open 2014 Edition.

H2h:

2-5 against Sharapova; 2-4 on hardcourt, but one of those was at their only Slam meeting-- in the first round of the AO in 2010. Plus, Sharapova has been vulnerable lately. We'll see!

Re: Return of Kiri - US Open 2014 Edition.

Match is first in NIGHT session, on Arthur Ashe, on Monday!
I want Kiri to win sooo much, but let's just hope she is healthy.
She posted picture from training, early in the morning on Ashe.

Re: Return of Kiri - US Open 2014 Edition.

It would be a huge surprise if she could win against Sharapova after not playing for months. I just hope she shows a good level of play and maybe one close set. Still looking forward to the match, I miss watching her play .

Re: Return of Kiri - US Open 2014 Edition.

Awful draw for Maria. I'm not expecting much given Maria's time off and the opponent.

Good luck Maria.

Re: Return of Kiri - US Open 2014 Edition.

Maybe playing Big Maria in the first round is Kiri's reward for mailing in the last 14 months of her career the way she did. Little Maria usually plays Big Maria tough. But not tonight. Why? Pova is healthy and in good form while Kiri may or may not be healthy and she is not in any kind of form due to being inactive. Makirii's only hope is a windy night and Pova's serve is off. Otherwise I expect this to be the first rout Pova gives Kiri in their careers.

HOT SHOT goes to MaKiri! :-) So far good match, very hard hitting from both. Kiri mix it up a little bit with her bh slice.

From 4-2 up to 4-6.
She is way too passive as set goes on.
