So far Maria and Agnes haven't won any match. At least this year: Doha and Dubai.

Re: Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships 2008

doubles with Agnes seems like a waste of time at the moment, they can't get a win anywhere

Maria, now go to Bangalore asap and maybe that special Indian atmosphere can help you find your form again

Re: Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships 2008

I do not think it's an issue of Maria having to fight for more points. She already does. She did look troubled 6-3 2-0 and was not her usual self. I saw the full match and there was an obvious injury because Masha could just not move very well at all.

Yes, you have to fight in every match and she tried to. This injury appeared when she was winning.

I would expect Maria and Agnes to grow into a good doubles team. But so far they have struggled so much as a team and that has surprised me.

Court 1 (from 14.00hrs)
1. Chan/Chuang vs. Poutchek/Rodionova
2. Morigami vs. Mauresmo (NB 15.00hrs)
3. Kirilenko/Szavay vs. Peschke/Stubbs

If knee trouble her, she should withdrew from dbls

You speak the truth. I only hope Maria's coach and parents tell her the same things. But I doubt it.

You have to start battling before the last points

Re: Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships 2008

This latest 'collapse' of Maria seemed injury related to me, she was much slower than usual in the 3rd set and couldn't hit her forehand properly. Partly it's mental of course, but she needs to be 100% fit to compete at this level. I hope she gets these problems sorted out soon

Re: Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships 2008

We've seen Maria the battler in last points vs Bondarenko. 6 deuces, 4 defended matchballs. It all was to late.
