Sharapova to debut in Paris

Sharapova à l'Open GDF
WTA Paris

Malgré son forfait à Melbourne, Maria Sharapova a confirmé sa présence à Paris pour débuter sa saison WTA. L'Open GDF-Suez, qui débutera le 7 février au stade Pierre-de-Coubertin, attend également l'Américaine Serena Williams, vainqueur en 1999 et 2003, et Amélie Mauresmo, titrée en 2001 et 2006.

http://www.eurosport.fr/tennis/wta-p...lashnews.shtml

Apparently, in that link posted yesterday on the french Eurosport, they make it official that Maria just confirmed her presence in this years GDF Open as her debut tournament for this season. Is it really true?

Hope this is true

Re: Sharapova to debut in Paris

It makes no sense to rush back. If she couldn't make this AO, why play before March?

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

Re: Sharapova to debut in Paris

Yeah right! Of all the places for her to return she chooses Paris??

I personally think she won't be back until Indian Wells, minimum.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

You all already forget how Justine Henin started (career best!) 2007 season. She is not ready for AO/07, so withdraw... than she choose Paris indoors for her comeback - lose one set against Loit and against Golovin, before lose SF vs Safarova, but this matches very help her to back in perfect shape: she lose just three of next 60+ matches that season!

Kim Clijsters also have similar start of career best season (2005). She is forced to miss AO/05 and she choose to start at February Antwerp indoors... lose QF match... but at next two way bigger tournaments next month (Indian Wells and Miami) she reach titles!

So it's smart move from Sharapova to choose (and "sacrafice") one small February warm-up indoors tournament before IW and Miami important mandatory events.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Sharapova to debut in Paris

Paris is a smart place to return to the tour. The field is decent but never too thick or stellar so it's a good place to get some match play and confidence.
