Why aren't You happy? Mary just can't have such great draws like in her previous starts. Daniela isn't in form. Are You worried about the Chinnese? Ya know, if we'll be worried about that kind of players...
And about Maria: it was showed in Berlin that she isn't such a good player on clay. She isn't very smart on the surface. She just hit as much as she can every ball. She moves horrible, especially around the net and to dropshots. Fast surfaces are a different story but on clay, Ya know, if Mary wants to be high again in Grand Slams she should win the match. If not, I don't think she has any chances at RG. For sure on tour there are many more good players better than Maria. For me she isn't a favourite. She still has to learn a lot how to play on clay.

First mary has to play...she is still not sure...if she...this is a good draw

Mary Pierce (the only queen)
Venus Williams (the real athlet)
Anna Kournikova (the beauty)
Maria Sharapova (the precious)
Jelena Dokic (the tchiiii girl)
Mirjana Lucic (the rock)
Victoria Azarenka (the alien)
Daniela Hantuchova (the classy style)

Yeah, could be worse. Peng and Hantuchova shouldn't pose a real threat if Mary's recent form is maintained. I have to say, I'm SO fed up of Mary playing the very top ranked players in the 3rd round of every tournament, but Sharapova on clay is certainly not unbeatable.

So sad if Mary won't be able to enjoy such a draw

Peng is not an easy player to beat, you know, Mary hates this kind of little player who run a lot without hitting ... But, then, hantuchova is a really good opponent, Mary is so much batter than Daniela is !

Next, it doesn't matter ...

Roh so sad if she's injured

"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."

Is Mary injured again? I've never heard about it. What is it again?

Ya know, I don't think that Peng is the type of player like Sugiyama or Suarez. I saw her in Berlin vs Sharapova.
She hits the ball really hard and she doesn't move well. She is a power-hitter, not a defensive player, in my opinion.

In double, Mary will play with Kuznetsova.
They'll face Kirilenko/Medina Garrigues.
And maybe in second round the number 1 team Ruano Pascual/Suarez.
Our team will be very difficult to beat when we know the power and talent they got.

Sorry I'm wrong.
In fact they will face in first round Chladkova/Gagliardi
and maybe in second Hantuchova/Suchiyama or Testud/Vinci.

Its an average draw, first two rounds are winnable, and Sharapova is tough, but on clay Mary has a good chance. GOod luck Mary!
Now, if Mary was injured in Berlin, why is she playing doubles again? and when was the last time Mary played a singles and a doubles match in one day, and came back to win her singles match the next day. Only once this year, I think... I love to see Mary in doubles, but please Mary atleast try a week without doubles and see how it goes. Last week is a perfect example, she plays two matches on wednesday... comes out on thursday against an opponent she beat easily in their last 2 encounters, and makes more UE's than her last matches. I mean c'mon, its not just a coincidence!

BTW, Mary/Kuznetsova should be a good doubles team!
