stuttgart, Moscow, Zurich and YEC, she plans to play three weeks in a roll again, I expect her to withdraw from Zurich though.

Stuttgart is a new one....no Beijing this time either
Wouldnt be surprised if Zurich wasnt a certainty

Maria Croft

Yeah, if she goes far in Moscow she will probably withdraw from Zurich.

Thats a pretty good schedule, Im not so sure about Zurich, it all depends on how she feels.

Stuttgart will hopefully be good. very fast surface.

I think it's a good choice not to play the China Open and focus on the indoor season instead.

Can't wait to see Maria in Stuttgart, really fast surface so she should go well there. I can see a potential problem with her playing Moscow the week after cos last year Moscow had the slowest hardcourt known to man, if it's a similar pace this year then it could be tricky to adjust. Can't see her playing Zurich.

Sharapova said she would take four weeks off, then return to play in Moscow as a two-time major champion.

Does that mean Maria will not play Stuttgart?

This year they've changed the surface in Moscow (after Masha said last year that it was quite dangerous ;) ) So probably it will be faster.

By the way, Masha withdrew from Porshe.

she already withdrew from porsche grand prix, how much will that cost her?

Maria Croft
Sep 13th, 2006, 01:07 PM
So Moscow will be her first tournament back?

morningglory
Sep 13th, 2006, 05:31 PM
a good decision... I still dunno if she can handle 2 weeks in a row if she goes deep :unsure:

Maria Croft
Sep 13th, 2006, 07:58 PM
Well, Moscow doesn't have that many rounds as San Diego or Los Angeles, the same can be said about Zurich, the draw is smaller.

Too bad she plays so few tournaments, I wanted her to finish ahead Momo in the rankings

Would love to see Maria go well in Moscow :cool:
having this long break gives her every chance

Maria Croft
Sep 14th, 2006, 06:26 AM
I also really want her to do well in Moscow, and if possible win the whole thing :yeah:

A pity Maria isn't playing Stuttgart but she's giving herself a great chance to do well in Moscow, good to know it might be faster this year. :cool:

I agree about that, although my guess is that like last year, the Russians will once again raise the "not Russian" issue, create so much bad vibes around her campaign, then let an outsider win.

~lollipop_girl~
Sep 14th, 2006, 12:26 PM
She just won another slam & if she wins in Moscow I think they would drop the not Russian thing... Although they might not like her American "background" they will still want to be associated with the best! ;)

A pity in my view. she would have liked Stuttgart, while Moscow is a slow court, and she can expect a lot of gruelling matches against fellow Russians in front of a crowd that will largely support the Muscovites.

She probably should play Moscow, but Stuttgart is one of the tournaments most suited to her game.

Yeah i agree Idealy for her Stutthart and Zurich would be great but she is sort of forced to play Moscow.

I guess the new surface in Moscow this year will be faster.
And we'll try to support Masha as much as possible!! At least me and a dozen of my friends :hearts: .
Also hope Maria won't be so nervous as last time and there will be no injuries :worship: :worship: :worship:
You said she is forced.. probably it's so.. but she told in the interviews she liked Moscow a lot, how it changed, and liked the support of the fans. Hope it's true...

I think Maria really enjoyed playing Moscow last year and as I recall the crowds were pretty suportive.

Apparently Maria has entered Linz which is the week of October 23
http://www.generali-ladies.at/

So she'll still have 3 weeks straight and then a week off before Madrid...

thats a bit of a shock,will she really play all,Linz is a pretty fast surface and should suit maria.

Maria can only play a max of 8 matches at Moscow/Zurich and the conditions will be pretty good. Maybe she'll see how it goes before turning up to Linz.
