I'm certainly planning in watching her matches. Question is: is Eurosport planning on broadcasting her matches?
Anyway, I wish Maria all the best. I hope she learned from her loss against Myskina...

Maria's draw has now been modified due to the withdrawl of Serena.
Her first match, which should be Wednesday, is a 2nd round encounter with the winner of Brandi v Grande (played Tuesday).

If Maria gets through her 3rd round opponent is likely to be Vera Zvonereva.
Lena D, Sugiyama and Mauresmo remain in the same half of the draw!!

I think Zvonerava and Dementieva should be easy enough if she's on it. She certainly has the measure of Dementieva's game... She'll jump all over her serves. Sugiyama will be tough just like Wimbly, and Mauresmo will be very tough. I don't know if Mauresmo and Maria have ever played. I think Mauresmo could baffle her if she tried a serve-volley game, as Maria is clearly a match for most baseline hitters.

I have been lurking on this board for a while...
Anyway where did you get the information about Sharapova playing not before 13:00 local?

I am asking this because I'm planning on going tomorrow!
As of now I still thought it was undecided on whether sharapova's match will be played in the afternoon or during the night program.

I came on time to see Maria practice today. She is very tall in person!
I Felt a little sorry for her since everybody wanted a piece of her.
eveybody was crowding near her to get her autograph.
I snapped some pics but with a normal camera, not a digital one.
so I don't know how they will turn out.
I was pretty close to her though

anyway Saw her match today, she kicked ass!

Dementieva needs to work on her serve though.
At this level of play, it is a major flaw.

Anyway I am happy Golovin won.
I wanted to see her match but after staying 4 hours in the sun watching sharapova, petrova's match I wasn't prepare to wait an additional 2 hours to see Golovin play.

Tickets here are cheap though
specially with the 2 for 1 promotion on tickets
so maybe I will go see Sharapova again tomorrrow night the match looks exciting

I think Maria will be working quite hard during those 3 weeks to get her serve back to the level it was at Wimbeldon.
Without seeing the game Im sure Marias confidence may be down a little now too so hopefully some good practice will help get that back and she'll be good as new at New Haven! :)

good ol' Robert Landsorp needs to give Maria a good kick in the bot-bot… get her training real hard! Maybe she can do a repeat of the grasscourts and win New Haven, then the US Open? Hope so :p
