Re: Miami 2013.

My immediate reaction was to think this was a bad loss for Kiri. But maybe Klara is just better head to head at this point in their careers. More importantly Kiri must avoid a down turn in her tennis after doing well so far in 2013. She usually has a slump after a good stretch of tennis but I hope that is not the case this time. I do worry about Maria's clay results this year. Her game will have to be good if she's to do well on clay this year. I also hope her troublesome left knee is okay and that the clay courts don't hurt it the way hard courts do.

Klara isn't a good match-up for Maria.

I'd agree that it's problematic to talk about a rematch with BigMasha if we were all overlooking and disrespecting Zakapalova, but I don't feel that was the case. It's okay to have some reaction to potential later rounds in the draw. I agree it's not okay to presume victory.

I was excited to see this match with Zakapalova, since Kiri had played so well lately, and I was optimistic she could turn this matchup around from her disaster at the French Open, but it wasn't to be.

well, you are right. I am just always feeling so so unpatient for her next matches when a tournament is over

Luckily Big Masha defeated Vesnina, it means that somehow today's lost brings less regrets.

Re: Miami 2013.

Makiri Couldn't quite defend her points from last year, but still a good tournament for her. Kookie is turning out to be quite a nemesis, having won the last two times as well to even the h2h, 3-all.

Re: Miami 2013.

well, I can't believe it. Kiri lost to Kookie again. She had two setpoints at *4-5.
And she was up 4-1 in the tiebreak before losing 6 points in a row.
Disappointing

that happens when everyone already speaks about a rematch with BigMasha..

somehow, after a really good tournament, there is always to follow a bad one or a retirement/withdraw from Kiri

what's the next tournament?

Re: Miami 2013.

Seriously? Kookie wins the 2nd set tiebreak 7-4 from 1-4 2nd serve down. The match was 1 hour 43 minutes long.

Maria also had 2 set points at 5-4 2nd set, one of them a 2nd serve.

Kookie holds for 6-4 in the 2nd set tiebreak on a 2nd serve. Save the match points Maria.
