Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

Your opinion.
I say yes, but that's because I'm a fan.

I hope to God she does, but only if she is totally injury-free.

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

No and I'm not a hater nor do I dislike Maria. I just have a funny feeling something isn't right about all these statements that have been released recently. I think they are keeping it up in the air just for the PR and to sell a few more tickets. It's good for Maria and the tournament for people to think she'll show up.

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

She will, but she wont be 'tennis-fit'. An early casualty for sure, which is to be expected after such a long lay-off and a still precarious injury.

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

i hope so as you want all the big names at slams, but hope not if it just sets her back another few months.

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

hmmm maybe...i'm leaning more to the yes side though....she usually doesn't miss slams unless its really bad, and the US Open was such a case...

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

Serena AO 2007 anyone???!

haha just sayin. She could be ousted fast or win the whole thing. Btw if she doesn't show up, she'll be No. 15! never thought I'd see such a low ranking for a while

Maria Sharapova
Jelena Jankovic

Totally agree. Doesn't seem logic that she's coudn't play a 2-matches Exhibition Tournament a week before the AO. She may as well play, but she's going out in the first round.

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

She only missed one major, and HAD to miss it because of the shoulder surgery. If she's healthy enough to practice every day, she's playing.
An exo is different.

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

Re: Will Maria show up in Melbourne?

She'll play IF her medicos assure her she can't damage the shoulder doing it. I'd it's 65/35 she plays.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
