Kirilenko's finally winning some matches, backing up her win over Sharapova. I was wondering what you guys thought about her chances against Safina are?

well, she looked like a dear in headlights in the last round. how many match points did she waste??

she'll be on a main court against dinara . . . i'm not very hopeful. of course, what wta player can hold their nerve these days?

it's tomorrow night, no? I think she'll get smoked, however her base against Sharapova was playing steady tennis, and steady tennis vs. berserk Dinara could = success

either way I hope this inspired her to get back into the top 20 this year

Steady tennis can knock out lots of players on the WTA hah

only problem Safina is standing in her way

Safina's performance seems pretty solid so far. Simply domination. I actually want either Safina or Dementieva to take the AO this year. Now Dementieva is out, Safina is the go-to girl.

What's going to happen if makiri goes to the final and take the trophy? O.O

Dude! You're on a roll. Calling people racists in one thread and talking dirty in front of the kids...

I wonder how many people are actually kids on this board. :)

Regardless, you got a point. However, don't you think most guys would have that kind of dirty thoughts? :wink: Testosterone in action. :)

Makiri did win! It was off of a Safina retirement, but she won none the less.

Next up is Makiri vs. Zheng. Who saw that coming in the quarterfinals?!?

let's go Maria! if she could make a slam semi that would do loads for her ranking and hopefully confidence

I dont think there is anyway she can make the final. Either Henin or Petrova will be too much for her, and she just doesnt have the neccessary firepower to really bother either. She might be able to make the semis but that is the end of the line for her I think.

It would be nice to see Maria K. make a semi. Would do wonders for her confidence. Hope she does, but like Jie too.

Even if she goes out in the quarters, that already should boost her confidence for the rest of the season. Go Maria! Funny how everyone on this forum roots for her. I guess that proves that most people on the forum are men :)

i really really hope Makiri can makes the semi, no disrespect to Zheng Jie and i think she has a good all court game but i really want Makiri to climb the rankings

Let's put it this way, if there were America's Next Top Model instead of the AO, she would be the favorite to bite the trophy.

She's a solid player but nothing more than that. Put her up against someone like Serena and it'll be carnage unfortunately.
