Re: ART Melbourne

Sam Stosur Interview Before the AO


What are you most looking forward to about Melbourne? Hmm, I don't know really its really exciting in Melbourne and I'm hoping to get a win here.

You didn't have the best start to your season last week in Sydney, are you hoping to do better this week for yourself and for the Australian fans? I hope this week I will do better than last week, I really disappointed the Aussie fans last week and I'm hoping not to do it again this week.

Who do you expect to be the world's number 1 after this tournament? I don't really know everyone is training hard on the tour for the Aussie Open and the season has just really started so it will be tight.

Is there anyone who you dislike on the ART tour? No, not really, I don't dislike anyone, and I hope they don't dislike me.

Who are you teaming up with in the doubles this week? Why? And is this important to you? This week I teamed up with Nadia Petrova, my good friend, I think we will do well in this competition, last week was also good with me and Ana getting to semifinals, but I have just chosen Nadia.

Any last words? Nope

Re: ART Melbourne

okay people, just winning you a title last week does not grant you a safe bye through to the next round, true, there are some very tough matches- but if you want someone to blame- take it out on random.org

Laura Robson

Re: ART Melbourne

everyone will have a ranking after the AO, and it will be then whether or not it affects if you get a bye in the next round or not

Make her run. Get her. Remember, it takes courage and discipline to do/be Serena Williams- the best.

Re: ART Melbourne

It's ok, it gets confusing when you have different players in different games

Re: ART Melbourne

Oh hello, Australian Open



MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - Maria Sharapova has been training hard ahead of the first grand slam of the Amazing Race Tour. Sharapova hit Rod Laver Arena today for a practise session under the sweltering heat. In less than a day or two, she will be staged in the same arena ahead of her first round match against Maria Kirilenko. The Russian is confident that she can win this, but hard work must be put in for it to be possible.

So I am still unsure about my first round match with Maria Kirilenko. She's a good friend of mine, and she has a good game. It will be interesting to see what she throws at me tomorrow.

Sharapova was asked about her sudden change of hair colour.

Maria Sharapova is also known for her on-court fashion. Her outfits can be a hit or a miss, but usually it's freaking stunning.

Isn't she back on the WTA already?
