where's sharapova?

played ao, 1 match of fed cup, did a bit of shopping in paris, now nothing till iw. seems a rather odd early season, missing the two potentially lucrative middle east premiers? is she injured or unfit? or not taking anything seriously till the olympics?

Re: where's sharapova?

Maria hasn't played middle East for quite some time now. She is not the type of a player who could play all year and stay totally ok, so it is a good decision to have a bit of a break before the most difficult part of this year kicks in. And if you wanna know where is she, in USA.

Ana Ivanovic, Maria Sharapova, Zvonareva, Kuznetsova, Makiri, Vika, W sisters, Sarita, Domi, Halep, Dinarik tnx for all! TeamRussia
ROGER FEDERER, RAFA NADAL, Delpo, Kei, Spanish Armada

Re: where's sharapova?

she cares only about slams nowadays...plus she likes to take a month break once in a while anyway

you're right! but she did play one of them each year prior to the rc injury, just ignored them ever since. i suppose i think of her as playing there as she did quite well, winning or finalist whenever she played, but it was a while ago.

Re: where's sharapova?

It is very interesting that she doesn't usually play the Middle East tournaments because she has had very good success at them.

Doha in 2005 which she won.
Dubai in 2006 which she lost in the final to Handin.
Doha in 2008 which she won.

Re: where's sharapova?

Mid-east tourneys are for hardworking players who want to earn points and money. Maria is neither hardworking nor does she want to earn points/money this time of the year.

Re: where's sharapova?

^where is that? North Sea?

Spring American HC season was when she started to gain points last year. Would be interesting if she started underperforming Caro style and slid down the rankings.
