Maria's main strength is her on court focus.
Anyway, this is a prep for Paris.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Wrong, Maria's main strength is that she's a Russian

Hope so.

Probably won't though. Maria's an expert at putting things out of her mind and concentrating on the match.

perhaps maria had a point after all, look what happened to all the top players in Berlin, they were brushed aside by the underdogs!!!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I do hope so!

But no..I dun think she would be affected..
She is so determined on court.
unless she is arranged to play 3 matches in 1 day.

Seriously, there were cases on ATP side) when players got into a slump after conflicts with ATP. Hewitt is the best example. Whether it was directly connected to the conflict is still up for debate.

Re: Is this conflict with the WTA going to afect Maria's performance ?

Players are sometimes asked to play two matches in a day, I can't believe how many people are sympathizing w/her over a freakin photoshoot. Surely you think she's more focussed than that.

If flashbulbs made her weak she'd be bedridden by now.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
