Re: Sharapova will get a lot of early rest
I think it's a smart schedule for her.
I guess we can call this Maria's "Back To Basics" tour.
Although she did play well on green clay, I don't think it's a good surface for her because of her movement.
She's bound to get injuries (upper leg typically) on that surface.
So after Miami, I wouldn't be surprised if she took another rest for the green clay season and then played in Europe for her warm up for the French Open.
Then probably a trip to Birmingham but I wouldn't be suprised if she switched things up and played the UNICEF Open instead.
