It just looked like a mild tweak. She couldn't kick off her serve but lateral movement looked fine. Like I said on Twitter, it looks to be similar to her wrist injury in RG. It will probably be fine tomorrow.

Now go on your much deserved vacation Maria. :cheer:

Don't think it was as bad as Tokyo last year. If it was a competitive match I think she'd call the trainer and tape her ankle and continue. Something like Miami last year. But I don't know. Hope it's not serious. She still has that Samsung event in Moscow tomorrow. If she's still able to go, then it should be ok.

Someone mentioned Petra saying Maria had no friends.. I don't understand Czech but from the few words that I did manage to catch she was saying that Maria doesn't hang out with girls on the tour.. Which is a fact...

A few funny moments were:
- Maria pretending to hit the ball hard when she was hittin puff balls... But sometimes she did play seriously and they had some nice points but Petra made way too many easy errors on balls that Maria was setting for her to hit in. :help: I think Petra was a bit nervous and even Maria became uncomfortable with it. So when Petra finally won her game, Maria went to her chair crossing over the net, not walking by Petra as a sign of "protest"... Then Petra did the same...
-During one break Maria opened a bag of Sugarpova, handed it to Safarova and she gave it to a man behind her... He put it in his pocket... And since he was having some extra kilos Maria looked and said: "what is it?" when they told her she said: "He doesn't need it!!"
-They had one exchange of balls with the racket handle...
-The end - epic!!! There BitchyPova made an appearance... Petra had troubles with her serve and Maria told her to serve anywhere... Petra faulted, Maria gave her a chance to serve again.. And told her: "Come on! Give me an ace! A Wimbledon match point ace!" there she raised a bit her eyebrows and had a certain look on her (and that's the moment when I thought, oh noes, she is not joking)... and continued: "Believe me, I remember it! It gives me nightmares."

At the very least, I wouldn't be surprised if this injury puts an end to Maria's Exhibition season. I realize people pay good money in advance to see her play in these kinds of matches and a huge star like Maria is counted on to promote the women's game. But she needs to look out for herself first. Better to be cautious and prioritize.

As for the match, I love Maria's sense of humor. It can be a bit biting and direct. I think she was playfully needling Petra, trying to have some fun and pump her up a bit. She probably sensed Petra was a little down with the way she was playing and her health issues. But I can't be sure unless I see some video.

And I like how Maria can joke about that painful loss to Petra at Wimbledon.

She also manages to be funny without the shade when it comes to Petra. Cause her sense of humour is dry and sarcastic, its hard not to shade.

Yes,but if Serena can play an exhibition the day after cutting her foot and receiving stitches and later surgery,surely Maria can turn up to a couple of exhibitions even if she has to completely tank them

Serena probably injured the foot more by playing on it.

And I feel like Maria will show up seeing as how she's made a commitment and it's not like they can find last minute replacements after they've sold all those tickets.

Safarova was great with the kid as well, and I like her ponytail.

Seeing Maria smile and joke on court is plain weird and unnerving though. Also, its definitely a good thing she does that ice queen thing on court, cause when she's smiley and jokey she definitely looks cocky :haha: in the best way of course.

I should? Well, I documented them with lousy screencaps... If anyone can teach me where to upload pics to make them here available in thumbnails and having them clickable I can try to do it tomorrow...

Hate to spoil the party here. I am glad that we get to see Maria during the off-season but does anyone else feel that this may inhibit her off-season. I mean after her vacation she'll have about 2 weeks before she's trotting around the world for these exhos.

I know in theory it offers her the chance to try out new thing in her game. But with all the travelling involved it take a chunk out of her off-season as well.

Plus she'll have to fit her shoulder rehab in too, taking away from time on court.

jamesshazza, I agree. I am worried about that too... I think it won't allow her to have a full working off season. It will be great for us to see her here and there and in relaxed atmoshphere hopefully (like the Czech exho was), but still..

Yes, I did some digging and just disovered it myself. Even more outrageous: "At just 19, the Serbian tennis player is already close to eclipsing Miss Sharapova: “What do I have that she doesn’t? I’m a nice person…”"

Exos must be so fun. You get to play a fake match and smile and be rich and stuff. Plus the crowds always act like it's the greatest, most exciting match ever played.
