this is what maria had to say today at a press conference:

On the status of her game thanks to two months off Tour because of a foot injury… "I don't think I'm as perfect as I would have liked to be. But, you know, I'm giving it my best shot…Hopefully, with a few miracles, things can get better and I'll be able to play. Definitely won't be 100 percent, but we'll see how it goes."

this does not sound good at all and it seems as though she doesnt know if shes going to play! well all i can say is for maria to do the best she can and get better by the time the grass season starts! good luck maria and get well soon!

hopfully but we might be wrong what does everyone else interpret this interview to mean, shell be lucky if she gets to play kinda thing, or shes keeping the pressure off kinda thing, i hope its the latter!

Maria never wants to give up but I hope she doesn't play if her foot isn't completely healed.

Sounds okay to me, Maybe she will be like Kim at the AO and every round she was on her death bed but yet mad the Semi and took it to the 3rd set :lol:

That doesn't look promising, and hopefully it's ok for her to play without reaggravating her injury. Good luck, Maria! :)

Well, at least she is playing again. I hope she has a good run at RG.

The same thing was said at the US OPEN and she did just fine, I expect her to go to lose in the quarters for the third straight year (though i would expect her to fall to Kuznetsova on clay even if she was healthy)

It will be nice to see Maria back on court, I doubt she'd risk major injury justto compete at RG.

Exactly, Wimbledon is more important for Maria, as is the hard court season looming.

Good lord, mshara! When I saw the title I thought Maria had withdrawn! :lol:
Hopefull her foot holds up nicely and she can shake off the rust fairly quickly. It would be nice if Maria could at least be through to the second week. :cool:

Go Maria! :)

Maria will probably be in the Qrts or Semi's, she'll be ok. Great GS performer.

Il Primo!
May 26th, 2006, 10:14 PM
Not concerned at all..I mean,I only expect her to reach the quarter..If she can beat Schiavone or Kuzie in the semies,it's only bonus. She's better than all her oponents of the firts rounds,even Safina who plays a game who should suit her pretty well.
In Australia,she wasn't perfectly in shape but she produced some good tennis so.. :angel:
GO MASHA :bounce: :bounce:

even if she's not 100% she's still far better than most of the field

i'm not going to get too worried. she performs well at slams. unless she's REALLY struggling, I hope she stays focused here instead of already thinking about wimbledon.

May 26th, 2006, 11:14 PM
She is one of the few top seeds that has a great draw...She has a good shot at working her way into the quarters so I wouldn't get too worried>P

Dont scare me like that i thought you were going to say the W word. Its OK Masha will compete with all she has and play herself into form

I tend not to believe these pre-Grand Slam "I'm injured... not 100%..." arguments... :rolleyes: Kim AO 2006... :scratch:

Maria's a great player, not a mover on clay court, but her skills on an average day can blow away the lower ranked players on any surface.

Maria will make the QF's - Sveta will be tough, though. From here on it's up to what happens on the match day.

(Lindsay made it to many SF's at RG with her mobility).

Lindsay made ONE semi

She'll be ok remember Maria's draws always allow her to make it to the Semi Finals.

Maria hardly ever goes out early in a torunament, even if she hasn't played in a while i still say she can make it to the quaterfinals

Here is a statement, things are not looking very good i must say :sad:


Maria Sharapova, twice a quarter-finalist here, does not think she will be offering much of a threat in 2006. Her father, Yuri, looked particularly depressed yesterday as he discussed the latest MRI scans on his daugher’s damaged ankle. "Hopefully, with a few miracles, things can get better and I can play," she said. "I’ve been working, training, doing a lot of therapy. It’s been pretty boring these past few weeks."

I honestly don't understand the extent of the injury, but it really doesn't sound at all that serious... maybe Maria is a bit soft? Just a thought (not a knock on Maria), but I mean adrenaline alone should get her past the 1st few rounds I would think.

I just hope she doesn't make the mistake that Serena made by playing to protect points. MARIA, your health is WAY more important. If you don't feel that you can play to your best level, don't play. I mean clay is kinda dangerous when it comes to making injuries worse. Play if you think you're confident enough to go deep! Good Luck Mash!

:mad: annoying ankle injury....these really take a while to heal plus she'll also have to get over thoughts of 'having to be a little more cautious' even if it's completely healed as it wont feel very strong.

jacobruiz
May 27th, 2006, 08:22 AM
Sigh - I hope Maria knows what she's doing if she does play. It sure sounds like her ankle injury could be aggravated here.:sad: If they don't think it's healed, I hope she doesn't play.

Maria's a bright girl. She wouldn't play if she didn't think she could handle it. She dropped out of Rome and Istanbul because she wasn't ready - and even though she's not 100% right now - I am sure she's fine and able to play a good standard of tennis. She's a tough cookie!

I think (and hope) that they just exaggerated the stuff posted on the official Roland Garros site, because except the Yuri stuff everything is the same, just some lines changed, and let's face it, Yuri always looks depressed :lol:

But, if Maria isn't ready she shouldn't play! It's not worth it!

Yeah, but look how long she played with that misdiagnosed displaced rib :shrug: Except that turned out all right and Maria's ankle/foot injury could worsen and keep her out of Wimbledon.

Well, that's a worst case scenario anyway and I believe like you that Maria will make the right decision in the end.

"Her stupid exhibition matches"? Maria injured her foot practicing on clay. For the clay season. The exhibition matches which were scheduled during clay season have nothing to do with it.:rolleyes:

By the way, Maria is hardly the only player to play exhibitions.

She didn't play the exhibition at all, she injured herself while practising, so what's your point :rolleyes:
