Sharapova Looking To Retirement



Maria Sharapova, currently 18th in the world, was a former top 10 player and has been battling a slump this year. She hasn't won a match since who knows when. She said that she already probably past her peak and won't be playing the same level as the new players on the tour. She may be planning a retirement following the end of the year but she does not want to drop out in the middle of the season. She also said that this is not an official retirement but she will retire if she continues "to play like shit".

This week, Sharapova will play in New Haven followed by the US open. She is hoping to go well there and hoping not to retire from this great tour. "I mean, come on, I was seeded for everything last year, and this year, I'm not even close to being seeded. I mean.. I have to play crap players like... BendUsOver in the first round.. I mean, I don't even know who the hell that is." This is what she had to say about her possible second ronud encounter with world's number 1 Serena Williams. "Who's that, is she that person's sister's sister? Who is that? What's her name, Serena? ... What, what, what? She's number 1? Ohhh you've gotta be fucking kidding me.. I thought that slut was number 1, what's her name?"

Hantuchova is singlehandedly killing OWTT. The only way things could get worse is if Hingis dedcided she was ready and won the next four slam.

I'd like to say Ree will destroy ugly Masha's face, but I won't.

Re: S2 Week 22, New Haven, USA, Tier II

Safarova Ready in New Haven



New Haven, USA - After going down in a thriller to Elena Dementieva in the third round in Montreal last week, world number 13, Lucie Safarova is keen to take some bigger steps in the last tournament before the US Open. But the draw showed no favours for the Czech number 2, with a potential rematch with world number 4, Elena Dementieva looming in the third round. Safarova, who lost to Dementieva last week in a tiebreaker last set, is confident here in New Haven. “I like these courts, they’re much faster than the ones in Montreal, and hopefully this will suit my game better.” “The loss against Elena was tough, but I’ve pulled up well after it and I hope to take my game to another level in the coming weeks.” "I feel like I can be up with the top 10 girls, my goal is to be inside the top 10 by the end of the season." With a bye first up, Safarova will play either Schiavone or Wickmayer in the second round with first round action getting underway on Thursday afternoon.
