Kiri went to the F1 instead (http://twitter.com/mkirilenko ), so, I suppose she knew for a while she couldn't attend the Moscow tournament. Maybe there's some issues/debate in the background.

Of course, she can rocket-rise in the ranking (starting from the qualifications), but I have the feeling that the AOpen is going to be a missed opportunity.

(I suppose the organizers were not willing to give her a MD WC, when it still seemed there's going to be many top players. Now they can see the result.)

Re: China Open

low ranking is not gonna be a problem for good maria. If she remains healthy for a long period i really do believe that her best tennis might be well in front of her and how great would be to see good maria because she does belong in the very top of todays game.

Possibly yes. In the next year she must be ready to play qualifications. I don't think it would be bad for her (she needs sharp matches).

Re: China Open

I think THE WIND killed Kiri's accuracy (and temper), and she was NOT WISE enough to re-focus her game from the light ball placements to bashing.

Re: China Open

And ranking going down, she'll be 175. or worse on Monday.
I thought that she'll beat Pironkova, so this is a step back for Kiri.

Re: China Open

The wind was a big hassle and it was uncomfortable but Kiri was too distracted, unfocused. She should consider happens when is her turn to serve. The only under of Pironkova was passing the ball. Is a real misstep after the tournament seoul ... I hope she have a bad day and not another injury.

I hope she isn't having some sort of physical problem. This is only her 2nd tournament back and she did have a week off after Seoul.

Re: China Open

Sigh. Pironkova holds for 6-1 2nd set at 40-30 from 40-0 (double fault there I think) on a 2nd serve. The match was 1 hour 16 minutes long.

This is a big letdown after Maria's run in Seoul.

Re: China Open

Seriously? Maria broken for 1-5 2nd set at love on a double fault.

What the heck happened to Seoul Maria?

Re: China Open

Pinokova held for 4-1 2nd set after facing a break point. Hold Maria.
