I really don't think the decision hurts Mary at all. She seems to be pretty much prepared for the AO when she's playing her best. She really doesn't have many points to lose. Just going to the AO ready for the tourni with the addition of knowing she has nothing to lose could really make it a very special AO for Mary.

Maybe Lena D. told Nastya how great and effective it was to work on her serve along with a certain Richard K. and now she tries the same 3 months long!

Nah, sheŽs preparing for the season, doing high altitude training with Likhovtseva in St. Anton currently. Interesting choice not to play any warm-ups.

OK but can't Mary be ranked 4th and have a 1-4 seeding at Aus Open if she does well in one of the warm ups???

In Mary's case I don't see why she would care. The road to her last two slam finals has been pretty tough.

I'm guessing if Nastya had a great start to 2005 she would have chose differently. It's not like she has many points to defend.

i wish Venus would play Hong Kong and Sydney, and the same for Serena (or Serena play Hopman Cup)

it would be nice to see them back in Sydney, playing a proper tourney before the first GS, but like Wimby, they are good enough not too.

Nastya doesn't care about her seeding at the AO it seems
She'll most likely lose her 9-12 spot

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

Will she? IsnŽt it only a week before they make the cut-off? The end of the first week of the year determines the AusOpen seedings, no? (That was so Nadal-like)
