Question What is Mary's Next Tourney?

I don't think she has officially committed to Indian Wells because the committment list for Indian Wells is still as of 2004.

She is not on the commitment lists for Doha, Dubai or Miami either

I was thinking about the same. Ok, Dubai and Doha could be missed. But in my opinion Mary makes every year the same mistake. Because of her ranking she SHOULD'T miss tournaments like Indian Wells and Miami. She could be seeded there and there are many points to grab and the best players in the world are there. Mary wants to prepare to clay court season but it doesn't make sense. And Mary doesn't have good results at clay cours even if she misses the 2 Tier-1 events(last year's Amelia Island and Charleston was a disaster and Berlin and Rome-not better). So I don't understand her decisions about missing Indian Wells and Miami(btw, I love the tournaments!!!!). Mary should play there. Her ranking needs it. Now Mary is in a good shape but there are no good results coz of tough draws(Mauresmo). Good starts in Indian Wells and Miami could help her to be in Top 20 again and be seeded in Amelia Island and Charleston. Mary is in a good shape but her ranking doesn't improve. She has to play there. If not, it'll be a mistake.

Yes you're right that's sure !
Last year she said she made a mistake so ...

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."

I have to agree with you as well.

Also Mary needs to play more as well to get the matchs in, to bring up her match fitness and also get more wins and points under her belt.


Mary please play more :h earts:

I haven't remembered she said she made a mistake. But what else? Did she say that it was a mistake to miss the 2 events? More?

i remember that :

she said, i think, that it wasn't a good idea to prepare clay season by taking 5 weeks off !!
She said that she's a "competition player" and that's why it wasn't a good idea to miss Indian and Miami (or one of them) ! She said that what she needs more, it's to pley matches and matches ! That's why she decided to play more tournaments last summer !

En français :
Je mets en français car je suis pas sur d'avoir dit qqc de censé en anglais mdr ! avec mon taking off" hasardeux je sais mm pas si cela s'utilise enfin bon !
Mary disait qu'elle et Sven avaient fait une erreur en prenant 5 semaines pour préparer la terre battue ! Elle disait être une joueuse de compétition, qui avait besoin de jouer. C'est d'ailleurs en ce sens qu'elle avait choisi de jouer plus de tournoi durant l'été ! Elle devrait donc logiquement prendre part à Indian Wells ... pour Miami, je ne suis pas sûr.

I just hope that her schedule gets better and does not miss so many tournaments.

Mary needs to play more and not miss tournaments to pre-pair.

I think that Mary trains to much, I mean when she could be playing a tournament.

Lets hope that we will see Mary winning more matchs, she is I think is great shape right now, she looks AMAZING

I hope she will draw a conclusion with last years' situations and won't miss Indian Wells and Miami this year.
