Sigh. I'm not sure what to make of this tournament result? She should've been in the final. But then again a SF isn't too bad, considering her awful year.

Kirilenko made a great start, taking the 1st set 6-3 with a love service game as Date Krummís forehand error into the net. Date Krumm came back strong in the 2nd set, however, and took it 6-2. Incredibly, she kept her momentum to open up a 5-0 lead in the final set. Kirilenkoís shots fell apart, with shanked forehands and miscontroled slices. Meanwhile, Date Krumm took away Kirilenkoís timing by attacking her serves early, forcing the Russian on the defensive.

Kirilenko is nothing if not a fighter, however, and the Russian refused to give up with her back against the wall. She finally held for 5-1, and a couple of huge returns saw her break back to 5-2. The next game, Date Krumm slipped and fell as she was attempting to change direction quickly to chase a drop shot. Date Krumm appeared to injure her right thumb. With Date Krumm looking somewhat shaken, Kirilenko held and broke again to bring the set back on serve at 5-4. The crowd was going wild at this spirited fightback.

Serving to even the set at 5-5, however, Kirilenko showed signs of nerves, shanking a forehand to go down 0-15. Then she made two errors in a row off Date Krummís return to go down three match points. On the second match point, Date Krumm ripped a passing shot winner down the line.

Maria lost.
What effect is this gonna have on her ranking?
Based on the comments posted here during the match, she was really screwing it up after that 1st set.

Hmm a few times not a lot from what I remember..(trying to forget). Maria did and got passed time after time though Maria's lack of first serve was really letting her down. Just looked she had 7 dfs in the match

Anyways Maria is playing doubles with Vesnina in Tokyo.

Oh. I guess that's kind of better than playing great in the 1st set than falling apart afterwards.

Did Date Krumm come to the net a lot?

Oh

So how did Maria play in the 1st set?

And I'm not sure I think she works with them during the bigger tournaments only.. she called her coach out at one stage but unfortunately I didn't see his face. He was wearing all Adidas though
Was it her dad? Is he still her main coach?

How did Maria play in the 1st set?
