A few Q’s for Maria

1. Why doesn’t she use her own twitter? Her fans would absolutely love it if she communicated with us more.

2. What are her goals for the year? How far up the rankings does she believe she can go

3. What are her favorite tournaments? Anywhere in particular that she feels she plays best at?

And finally maybe slip in a little ice hockey question, she’s attended a few Washington caps games does she think they can make the playoffs?

How would you describe your game-style? What has your new coach Jimmy introduced to your game? Do you like working with him?

Do you have a twitter account? If not you totally should, you have wonderful fans!


Nikkie March 6, 2012 at 5:17 pm

Do you listen to much music? Do you have a fave song to relax to? Or maybe a song that gets you fired up before you play? Or well what kind of songs would we find on her iPod?

How important are your fans to you? 🙂

Few Questions for Maria,

1. In your last few matches, you stopped grunting. Was this something you planned or just happen naturally?

2. Regarding tennis kit, do you prefer wearing a dress, skirt or shorts?

good luck Maria!

Thanks for the questions so far, some great ones for me to ask.

For those mentioning Twitter, Maria does have an account –!/mkirilenko though it is not as well used as Facebook or her official website.


David March 7, 2012 at 3:07 pm

That’s her website’s twitter. It’s not really Maria writing.

1. Have you been putting more emphasis on your volley game lately ? It seems like your midcourt game has made a difference in better results. Is this true ?

2. With so much concern today about injuries have you cut back on your practice hours during a tournament in order to make sure you give your body has enough time to recover ?

3. Of all the Grand Slams which is your favorite ? and which of the four do you have the best chance to win ?


Lily March 7, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Maria, everyone speaks about your latest boyfriend Alex Ovechkin, but you never confirmed it. Do you happy now in your personal life?
