are we all sure shes gonna play it?
I mean the conditions are too different comparing to RG and Stutt. Madrid Rome and Paris...isnt too much for her standard?

Its a Premier Mandatory. So I guess she HAS to play. Though she can skip it of course.

But the more matches, the better?!

many matches are certainly better than few matches. but the more the better? I dont think so

I thought she would've tanked Stuttgart :lol: so my feelings are not to be trusted, but I think she may not want to go that deep in this tournament, which is really atipical (blue clay, altitude, still so many question marks about the surface).. I don't think she'll skip it, but she will probably play without caring too much. Rome's next after all!

@Rerun: yeah I agree with you. I don't like Madrid in the first place anyway. :tape:
But I don't think you can skip a PM just like that. And I guess Maria would play here. :o

blue clay is some thing special and i think maria wont miss it. I want she gets a tough draw, maybe Barthel in early round

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012
 
I would actually like two easy opponents in the earlier rounds at least. :unsure:

The conditions at Madrid don't suit her, so playing easier opponents would actually get her some practice to defeat the tougher ones, IMO.

JoPova Apr 30th, 2012 11:51 AM

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012
 
Will she have a BYE in the first round?

Steven. Apr 30th, 2012 12:00 PM

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012
 
no byes in madrid. 64 players to round off the draw.

JoPova Apr 30th, 2012 12:01 PM

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012
 
^ Ok, thanks! I'm hoping for a kinder draw than the one she got in Stuttgart, so that she won't have to waste too many energies in the early rounds!

She lost a set to Rus last year? :tape:


I am really excited for this tournament... Can't wait to see the blue clay in action.

Maria rocks Apr 30th, 2012 12:10 PM

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012
 
Maria will win this tournament. :)

Mr.Sharapova Apr 30th, 2012 12:35 PM

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012
 
Maybe she decides to skip this :shrug: and have a go in Rome.

She won't reach back-to-back semis in Rome and Madrid that's for sure :shrug:.
