When I saw the draw, my first thought was that Paul won't like this one bit!!!! I'm not sure what draw Sunstreet is looking at, but that's a very tough draw!! Dani and then Serena!!! Dani is playing very well these days and Serena is, well, Serena!! The other sections, look considerably easier to me. Well Masha often plays well when she has a tough draw. Dani will be a tough opening match!
GO MARIA!!!
Masha is my #1!!

Well, sunstreet makes some points, yeah. Like I said, I'm throwing out "another angle"--namely this designing of draws. This has now become pervasive. I guess since Yanks to it, we're all supposed to just roll over & even pretend nothing has changed, when over the last few years, we've watched the corruption escalate before our eyes. 


"Q.  But a lot of the top player kind of like to play your way into the tournament, I guess.  I guess that will be the luck of the draw."
MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Yeah.  Yeah..."


Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hey, she knows, she knows... :cool:


deadchip: Note it IS possible to see (one-angle cam) the three Canucks playing qualies today. (Fichman thru rnd1 62 61) -- Marie-Eve PELLETIER (CAN) v Olga PUCHKOVA (RUS) NOW on Court 4.  http://www.streamingtenn...nal/livescoreboard4.html

^^ does that mean that we have a chance to see Maria's match from that stream as well come the 27th of July?

I really want to watch Maria's games and tennistv simply looks like a scam...

This appliance may be shut down when main draw starts--Yankee broadcasters take the attitude that if they have rights to show anything (like Stadium 1 Fri thru Sun), then they can disallow anyone from watching anything else. And WTA & USTA want the world to see nothing but Williams sisters if they can avoid it.


That said, as long as the in-house streams run, we can see a lot now. The courts other than 1, 6, 4 & whatever show qualies, the rest are available for practice. Also the Taub South Courts. Last time Masha played there, we caught her practicing a couple of times. Also Kirilenko & others. No way to know when, just gotta surf--I suggest late afternoon, early evening.


TennisTv IS a scam. Over three years it's gotten more & more crooked. Sevedral of us here have had bad experience. And the product has deteriorated over that time too.


 


The Canuck & Rooskie playing on Ct4 now.

Last qualie today will be Stacey TAN (USA) vs Heidi EL TABAKH (CAN) on Stadium (1) after the Americans currently playing there. http://www.streamingtenn...nal/livescoreboard1.html

Thanks for the info Paul much appreciated. I guess we will have to wait and hopefully, see something. In fact, Maria's latest entry states that she is going to have a late night practice today, so maybe we could get a glimpse of her...

You are welcome, valkyrie. Okay, "late night" may not mean all that late Pacific time.  What it MAY mean (based on past experience) is that several players have reserved time on Stadium Court (1) after the qualies. Start checking after about 7pm (19:00 PDT local) (02:00 Mon GMT).


http://www.streamingtenn...nal/livescoreboard1.html  


Last year during main draw, besides Stadium 1, courts most used for practice were 4, 5 & 6. Now there are also the six "Taube South" courts, which we haven't seen before.


 


Qualie lineup today, which should be finished by 6pm but you never know:

Stacey TanStacey Tan Flashy Stanford collegiate wildcard. Took out Heidi El-Tabakh (CAN) & meets another Canuk, Pelletier, in 2nd rnd qualies today. http://www.gostanford.co...is/mtt/tan_stacey00.html

Only four matches are the qualie finals, so we will see what happens.


(Sunday qualifying play is finished, so Stadum1 is now available for practice as of 18:00 PDT.)

20:00 PDT. Stadium1 is quiet but all the lights are on.  


Ditto Cts 4, 5 & 6. Not even anyone around where the temporary bleachers cover courts 2 & 3, Will monitor for an hour or so.  


21:00 PDT Activity on Stadium1, but looks like maintenance...


23:10 PDT Far as I know, all that's gone on was washing of the courts. I'm about to call it a night. See if there are streams tomorrow.  There should be Live Streams for CitiOpen in DC, anyway.


08:30 AM PDT. A girl comes out to practice on Stadium1. Not Masha. Looks familiar but I can't immediately identify herAnother joins her--a blonde...

Some action going on at the moment in taube stadium courts. Some players are doing warm ups and I got a glimpse of Maria (at least I think it was Maria because the camera aint so close to the court and not good quality. But she is tall and has the classic ponytail, so it must have been her)

Check out the stream :)

The blonde doesn't seem like Maria to me. Maybe they'll change ends.


This may be the doubles pair Maria KONDRATIEVA (RUS) / Sophie LEFEVRE (FRA) who will play later today.


I'm in the Shoutbox chat line (grey box at top of first page of forum.) 


9:00 PDT Practice also on Court 6 http://www.streamingtenn...nal/livescoreboard6.html

You are prolly right although I was watching her serve and the motion looked like Maria's (with the feet and all). But it is indeed very far away from the camera and you cant tell. If they change ends we will find out.

Aha! Is not that Volchkov (to right in first clip)? Still with team Sharapova.  Good to know. Thanx.

Yes, it is Volchkov and I'm very happy about this team right now. Now it's time to show result!! I expect Maria to do well from this point on....

She has the hardest possible draw.
If she gets past Hantuchova she will have
Serena next I guess.( or Kirilenko, and I remember how it was with
that one as she got kicked out ).
However, good luck Maria.
( Sincerely, my expectations are not high set ).

One more short clip of Maria training at Stanford. (Ivanovic in the background)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDam8G9vb9A

As for the draw I have nothing to add... seriously I can understand the ratings up to a point but...really...this is not fair at all. Other seeds are having a breeze to the semis, Maria needs to work HARD for it.

Good luck Maria!

Exactly she has to work hard for it, as she allways does, and that´s why i think it´s a great draw. There´s something to build on, which is great. I´m so looking forward to see Maria out there again, although i don´t know why all the television networks has decided to broadcast almost nothing at all from this years tournament...
Well i think Maria will do great, and i wish her the best of luck in tonights match, Daniela is a great oponent to start out with.

Good luck Maria. ;-)
