Mary's Acura Classic Draw (and it's not good news...)

Just seen the Acura Classic draw, and Mary starts against Claudine Schaul again, but then immediately comes up against Venus Williams - again. I know it's a tough tournament for all, but wouldn't it be nice for Mary to be able to gain some momentum with a less daunting draw? Or am I being pessimistic?

No I don't think you are. Love Mary and this is very tough. She should beat Schaul though. Mary, Babsi and Lina K are my faves - tough draws for Mary and Babsi and Lina not even playing although on tournament update list just thursday. Probably missed her plane!

GOOD LUCK MARY!

Yes it is a tough draw but it is also a good opportunity for mary. i assume she has been working with her brother whichwill boost her game and venus has been playing alot and does not have a bye so may be tired if she plays Mary. i give Mary every chance. good Luck Mary. i also cant wait to see what she is wearing.

This draw is just crap and you all know this, I have seen Venus playing LA, She was awsome, powerfull, fast, confident, on hardcourts She is very VERY dangerous, I don't see mary in 3rd round but I would love to be wrong though.
Anyway Good Luck Mary, Go Girl

I think this is the worst draw she could get.
Venus is one of the two best players right now and I really
hope that Mary will move a little bit faster now, because she really needs
to do that. Otherwise I really don't wanna know the score.
It scares the hell out of me.

But I really wish you good luck Mary and as usuall you can just play
your best and see how far it will take you.

MARY PIERCE

we're talking about the lady who could beat anyone at her best.
so if she's ready she'll take the titile no matter how tough the draw is.
but personally,I just love to watch her play.
win or lose I don't care anymore, I just think it's time for her to have fun.

VENUS JUST RETIRED from her match against Lindsay....so this is good news for mary, although i think Maam would kick Venus's ass if Venus is healthy!!

Do you really think she will not play next week?
What was her problem?

venus has a sprained wrist which could mean that she will pull out of sandiego which could open up mary's draw a little
