i think come the australian open mary is going to be back in good shape - at least appearance wise. every tournament i have seen her in since wimbledon it has been noticeable that she's been losing weight. her stomach look much tighter and the arms appear much thinner than they were 6 months ago.
mary pierce in shape is the most dangerous player in the world IMO. cara black found that out, and i think capriati may well to.
even their hair matches!! i think mary would be looking fine (ie amazing) if she went a little blonder, but i can understand the whole getting older and no longer wanting to be blonde thing, although it's not like she's 50.
