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.
