Yes it's obvious this is a better draw than last week or in paris or Anvers ...
But Mary has to be careful because she is also an "up and down" player !
I hope she will play at her best, like in Indian Wells and Amelia Island !
Mashona is not a bad player at all, she has a good game and beat Sharapova last year before Us Open (New Haven), that's why she can be a little threat, and Mary will have to play a good game if she wants to dominate her and advance in the draw !
Second round seems to be an easy one really, surely easier than Mashona !
Then Elena D. ... Hmm, Elena played a good tennis in March, only beaten by Clijsters. But on clay, even if she reached French final, i think she's not as good as Mary can be ! Moreover she is powerfull, but less than Mary i think, and her serve is a real problem, sure Mary will have opportunities to break her very often (all games probably lol) ! the key is to win her own serve !
So, Go Mary, beat Mashona and your second opponent, and then, enjoy your match against Elena ! With a smile, with your shape and with your confidence, i'm sure you won't let her dominate
