kirilenko: finally bridging the gap?

Maria Kirilenko has the gods working in her favor at the 2010 Australian Open, moving her through to the quarterfinals after Dinara Safina withdrew with a back injury while trailing 30-40, 4-5.

Here’s hoping that this run through the second week of a slam will help up the profile (and confidence) of the fashion-flexible Kirilenko. I think she’s got her fair share of fans in the Maxim-reading crowd, but it would be nice to have more casual tennis fans see her game, too.
