Moorilla Hobart International 2008

Maria's on the list for next week's Tier IV event in Hobart, Australia.
Last year, as the 4th seed, she lost in the first round to Sania Mirza 6-4 6-4. This year, it looks like she'll be the 5th seed. I'm not aware of any withdrawals so far. Hopefully, a chance for Maria to bounce back from being upset by Tamira. I expect another QF appearance for her. No sign of Tamira in this tourney!

Here's a player list I got from their website.

Re: Moorilla Hobart International 2008

I heard Azarenka is injured. She has a chance of facing some tough qualifiers. Good luck Masha.

Hopefully the late withdrawal is just a precaution and she will be 100% fit for AO.

Re: Moorilla Hobart International 2008

It's the beggining of a the 2008 season and Maria is already hurt. If Masha can't move well and cover the court as well as she does she will be easy prey for the big girls who will over power her from the baseline. I hope her pulling out of Hobart is precautionary. But there is a problem with her left knee otherwise she wouldn't have withdrawn.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
