Question Mary's Schedule After USO and Chances for YEC

OK I saw the other thread about Mary's schedule after the US OPEN but with her current schedule, it just doesn't seem like she is setting herself up very well to qualify for the YEC.

Week of Sept. 12 - Fed Cup Final in Paris
Week of Sept. 19 - OFF
Week of Sept. 26 - OFF
Week of Oct. 3 - OFF
Week of Oct. 10 - Bangkok (TIER III) instead of Moscow (TIER I)

This does not seem like a very good schedule to build up points and her rank . Does anyone know if she is playing any other tournaments?

I'm sure she'll play at least one of the three big tournament : not Moscow perhaps, but she will probably play in Filderstadt or Zurich

"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 think at her age she is less concerned with rankings and YEC. She wants to stay healthy and have good results in the tournaments she does play.

That's all true about age, etc....but I remember in an interview Mary saying that playing in the YEC was one of her goals. She has a great opportunity this year and I really hope to see it happen!

I think you are right, Mary said OZ 2006 was her first goal so this would explain this schedule...

Strange programm.Mary wanted to improve her ranking but missing the big tournaments is a mistake!!! The other tournament in Asia is only a TierIII. If Mary wants to have fun, it is a good programm. For me the most important is that mary is happy. But mary is a competitor and I don't think the tournament is fitted to her. Moreover the time lag is a big problem for the next tournaments. Don't forget that Mary only played San Diego since Wimbledon (yes ok coz of injuries but...), it is too few!!!!

Mary has sometimes a strange schedule. And this is another example. It's not smart to play in Asia instead of many big events in Europe. It's so stupid that the FED Cup is after UO!!!! I know they can't play at RG during autumn but it should be after the whole season, after all important tournaments. Fed Cup isn't too important and it's so stupid it's after UO and on ... clay!
In Asia Mary has to win 5 matches in some small tournament to earn ... 80 points! If Mary plays the events in Asia instead of big events in Europe she can forget about YEC.

Mary is not on the entry list of this tournament in Asia..

i do think that Mary has planned lots of weeks off after the fed cup just by security..

i Mean if Mary does well at this US open and play the fed cup final just after she may be tired..one or two weeks off may be helpfull..

then she will probably add one or two tournaments to her schedule...

don't worry Mary knows that she can have wild card...

If she is in good shape she'll play

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)

Hi,

I guess you all shouldn't be worried about Mary's schedule because she knows what to do. Who should know better than her?
So let us concentrate on the US Open first..

Can't play, why?

The Fed cup is more important for Mary than you think.

Can't play because it's too cold to play outdoor.

They should play Fed Cup like always, after the whole season. Not in the middle. In the middle of the season there are 100 important events. Mary has to start practising on clay again, then again hard courts/carpet. It's not too smart. Things like Fed Cup should be after the whole season. If You want to play, just play, if not - You have holiday. It's not so important to play it after UO.

Ya know, it's not that I have something against Fed Cup, Im just not interested in it too much. I think that it's worse for Mary that she has to start practising on clay again after UO. What if she'll be tired after UO? Because of the Fed Cup thing she won't rest. She won't be able to start preparations for indoor season as early as other players. She'll miss some important event coz she'll be resting after Fed Cup. She won't grab as many points as she wants to because she'll be resting after Fed Cup and won't play in some events where other players will and sooooo......................... That's why I think it's stupid to play the thing after UO.
