Hey Guys and Gals!

I posted Maria supporting threads in the "Upcoming Tournaments" section in the Pilot Pen and US Open threads. If you want to, go there and show your support for Maria! Maria needs our support after her last two losses!

Yes, but nowhere near as big as a grand slam. I mean would you rather have a wimbledon title or 10 Tier I titles?

I wonder if attending smaller tournaments is not better for Maria. Of course she's got to play the GS's, but sometimes I think some Tier I's are tougher than GS's. At least in GS you have the 3 or 4 earlier rounds to get accustomed to the surface and adjust your game against "average" opponents. Maria still needs this because of her lack of experience.

Good point you have there.
