Perfect draw for Sharapova

It was not a surprise at all that Wozniacki withdrew from Warsaw.

Now the draw seems to be wide open for Sharapova. A perfect draw for a comeback tournament.

1st round: Garbin
2nd round: Lucky Looser
Quarterfinal: A. Bondarenko (8) or M. Domachowska
Semifinal: No seeded player left in that quarter
(plus darkhorse Dokic out)
Final: Zheng, Hantuchova or ?

Is Maria the favorit to win the title?

Re: Perfect draw for Sharapova

Well, it was the first match. She was probably quite nervos.
I'm sure she will be more confident with every win.

Re: Perfect draw for Sharapova

In-form Bondarenko and Zheng would finish her 6-4 6-4

Re: Perfect draw for Sharapova

She might win it. Depends on the match with Alona, who just beat Sveta in Madrid

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: Perfect draw for Sharapova

Am I the only one who couldn't find any positives in her game?Her serve was awful.A good returner will crush her serve easily.She has a lot of work to do and I don't think she will accomplish it without a real coach .(practice partners don't count )

Re: Perfect draw for Sharapova

She doesn't have to neccessarily win the title here... don't forget she's back after 9 month of being out,so a QF or even SF would also be an ideal preparation for her! even though winning the whole thing is not out of question by any mean!

Can i ask you, what did you expect from her when she's coming back after 9 month out plus a serious surgery on her shoulder?? you mean she should win every match 6-0 6-0 in order to accomplish anything?

Yes u are, her serve wasn't awful, she was just hitting great zones without a lot of power, some great kick serves on 1st, no need to go for all everytime, plus, the pusher didn't attack her serve at all, so really she didn't need to hit that hard, about the DF, it's only a mental thing, she did 3 DF when she was serving for the match, I can get it after nine months OUT. Can't wait her meeting against Bondarenko,should be really interesting.
