Now, we are all know that Maria's chance to qualify for Doha this year is 0 (zero), I really hope she would play Bali! 375 points in offer if she wins there.

Maria has qualified to Bali according to this article: http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/sports/bali-womens-tourney-trims-roster-to-eight/399835

Top players such as Li Na, Maria Sharapova and defending champion Aravane Rezai are among those who have qualified to compete in Bali.

But the remaining three International Series tournaments in Linz, Osaka and Luxembourg this month could still produce new qualifiers.

^ Remember 2007? She played like crap too before the YEC and suddenly reached the final of YEC and almost won it. And then went on to win Aussie 2008 in spectacular fashion.

We gotta have faith on her I guess :sobbing: Besides, if she can perform well, it is a good chance to improve her year end ranking and set up a better seeding for Aussie next year.

She needs to play if we want her to comeback to her best level, I'm obviously not super excited about it considering her recent matches :unsure: but oh well at least we'll get to see her play anyway and she'll still be training, I guess.
And if she does bad then I'm sure she'll work very hard during the off season.
Plus, if we don't want her to play so she doesn't lose, do we want her to retire then? :shrug:
