Sharapova update from reliable source

I spoke to a friend of mine today and shes pretty good friends with Marias coach michael joyce. He told her that Maria is feeling very good but that they are taking their time coming back because hes worried about her starting back on the clay. he said the conditions are much heavier and to play consecutive days on the clay in the cold is not ideal conditions for the shoulder.He also said that the french open will probably be her first tournament back because the balls are lighter and she can get a day off in between matches.She might possibly play a small tournament the week before to get some matches.He alo said that coming back will be tough and doesn't want her to feel any pressure and work towards feeling her best during the summer hard court season.He also said that they are frustrated because its taken longer than the doctors first said but that there is no doubt that she will be back and that hes very impressed by how she has handled the whole situation. He also said shes only 21 and has many more years to play and her future is more important than rushing back .He alo told her that coming back from shoulder surgery is very tough and that the constant rehab has been very gruling on both of them ,but he said Maria is one of the toughest people he knows and that if anyone will come back stronger its her. anyway thought i'd share my info with all of you counting the days to her return just like I am.

Re: Sharapova update from reliable source

We all will see when she gets back, how she plays and her results, and how often she plays.
The talk doesn't matter, she hasn't played since last summer

Re: Sharapova update from reliable source

Maria in Strasbourg would be x 1000

A small tournament with most players ranked between 30 and 70, which would be perfect IMO for a comeback ; what's more :same conditions as French open (same balls same courts), and only 2h away from Paris.

Let's dream French fools !

Re: Sharapova update from reliable source

Maria did not miss a major until the last 2.
If she's not in Paris, that shoulder is a bigger problem than they are saying

Re: Sharapova update from reliable source

Clay isn't Maria's best surface. I think she should wait until the grasscourt season. Maybe start at Birmignham and then Wimbledon, before playing the US Summer hardcourt season.

Re: Sharapova update from reliable source

if only Maria was as quick as Steffi was, finish the matches in 45 mins, not 45 mins using time to do her hair and bounce the ball, it would be alot easier on her.

Good luck to my favs

Anyone think Maria might play Warsaw, which has a terrible field atm and really needs a star? Or is the clay really slow there and the balls really heavy?

haha, so true, Masha likes to take her time But that's why we love her so much - oozing confidence and annoying opponents
