Maria's never been on the Charleston draw or given a wild card. Think that was just one of those deals to get more matches if she went out earlier from Miami.
Apparently she was going to ask for a wildcard if she didnt make the semis, so yeah. Everyones had a different story to tell, up until last night when it was finally cleared up for the majority.
...I'm thinking Stuttgart?!
Dunno but possible, I guess. The lineup has slack:
Vera goes to Stuttgart after Moscow Fed Cup April 16-17.
Maria does the Bahamas exo April 16, so she could go on to Germany too.
Not a contradiction. In any given match, there is a pattern of linkage between the DFS & those specfic errors (net balls too). Record them point by point & you'll see it. They're aware of this & are working on it, as the patterns have gotten less distinct over time, but still there as yet. See a goof & you pretty much know when another isv coming & sometimes in what order. An opponent's coach is gonna see this & clue his girl what to watch for.
Congrats on the degree Sunstreet!!!! That, I'm sure, was a ton of work!Rafa and Nole was a heck of a match and it is too bad that someone had to lose. Still wow!!! No surprise Masha pulling out of Charleston, as she has gotten plenty of match play in March. Hopefully she can be work on her consistency, especially in her serve. As Paul has mentionned, the DF's tend to bring on the UE's as they underrmine her confidence. Still lots of good improvement and she should be feeling positive about her game at this point, though she needs to get into matches a bit quicker..... Hard to win when you spot the opponent a set and 4-0. Great credit to Vika, as she played stupendously and had the consistency that Maria lacked and hit very few errors all match. I was a bit disappointed with Maria's play in the final, biut at least she fought hard and did make it interesting in the end. Good thing hockey playoffs start next week, as I'll have time to kill with Masha not playing. Philli should start more threads it seems???? Ironic isn't it!!!
