I hope she can do well. Is she using her protected ranking?

Is she using her protected ranking?

She doesn't need to as that is just for entry purposes and she was ranked within the cut off when entries were done.

She will lose in the 1R I think. Sorry Maria. :hug:

May 15th, 2009, 02:43 AM
I hope she draws Safina in the first round. :hearts:

Is she using her protected ranking?

protective ranking doesn't work on seedings only on entry. At least that is what i think what you thought when you typed this.

Depends on the draw.

May 15th, 2009, 04:21 AM
3rd round, give or take a round.

May 15th, 2009, 04:57 AM
Depending on her draw, she could go as far as the 4th round, or lose in the 1st round. I say 3rd round.

May 15th, 2009, 05:15 AM
It all depeneds on the draw. If she gets a hard draw she might be out before round 3 but if she gets a soft draw she may be able to play her way into form and match fitness and could make the quarters.

May 15th, 2009, 05:23 AM
I don't think we can really tell what round she will make unless we see how she is playing before hand. Her form in Warsaw will probably be a good way to predict how far she may go in RG. I would guess maybe she could reach the 3rd round or so depending on her draw but it's really a stab in the dark.

May 15th, 2009, 05:28 AM
1st round unfortunately.

May 15th, 2009, 05:30 AM
She loses in 2nd round.

I agree..but she'll retire the match. :sad:

May 15th, 2009, 05:31 AM
Who voted that she'd win? :help:

May 15th, 2009, 05:36 AM
She'll most likely win the tournament.

May 15th, 2009, 05:48 AM
She'll most likely win the tournament.

totally agree.

May 15th, 2009, 06:08 AM
3rd, maybe 4th, and if she gets a cake cake cake draw QF. But no further.

What if she won!?!?!? TF would legit explode.

May 15th, 2009, 06:22 AM
FTW :rocker2:

May 15th, 2009, 11:51 AM
totally agree.


Or 4th round.

May 15th, 2009, 11:58 AM
She'll most likely win the tournament.

delusion, much?:worship:

May 15th, 2009, 12:01 PM
I'm feeling generous today so I voted for 2nd round.

Lots of delusional Pova fans who voted in this poll. :spit:

May 15th, 2009, 12:09 PM
Semifinalpova :worship:

If Sharapova is able to complete her 1st match and make it at least reasonably competitive I would say she would have had a decent Roland Garros and she would have made the right decision to play. If she is able to actually win a match I would consider it a major triumph. Hard to guess what sort of form she will be in but I suspect winning a match is not out of the question if she gets a kind draw. But the most important thing will be whether or not she is able to finish her matches and how she feels physically after them.

Providing she returns to fitness, winning will come later. For now I wouldn't expect more than baby steps.

May 15th, 2009, 08:15 PM
I said 2nd round

May 15th, 2009, 08:59 PM
How far she goes does depend on her draw simply because she hasnt played but honestly.... she should make the quarters of course she could lose first round. Although clay isnt marias favorite surface the amount of pace she hits with should still allow her to hit most of the girls off the court. Theres a reason Maria only loses to great players at the French (Safina 2x, Ana, Justine) ..... Best of luck Maria!

4th Rd:shrug:

May 16th, 2009, 03:43 AM
Will she play? The website says about her playing Warsaw. It does not actually mention RG. I am not sure she is certain to play it at this point , to be honest.

May 16th, 2009, 03:50 AM
4th round, beating Safina along the way. :worship: First number 1 scalp on clay. :hearts:

May 16th, 2009, 04:01 AM
3R and then power through Wimbledon.

2nd round.

It is a shame that this poll didn't provide the names of those making the selections. I would be very amused to see who were the 16 people who are predicting Sharapova is going to win RG.

There are numerous very sound sensible Sharapova fans in this forum who will simply be hoping that Sharapova gets through the next couple of months with her shoulder getting healthier and stronger without having any expectations that she will win more that a small handful of matches. Then there is the lunatic fringe who think Sharapova is going to win RG or Wimbledon or, goodness gracious, both. :help:
