Julian, great opener:) I can't wait for this tournament more than usual. Really wonder if we will see some changes in her game under Connors guidance. And yet we won't have seen her playing like 6 weeks by that time. :eek:

I just want to see her use more approach shots and come to the net to do some damage. Bring back her winners on the run please.

Quite surprising that Maria didn't play the Canadian swing at all from 2004-2008 :angel:.

Really hoping to see a more determined Maria out there and hopefully something changes in the way she goes about her matches here.

Win the title Masha :cheer:.

Looks like Masha will have official Sugarpova release event too in Toronto :lol:






Kinda funny cos it's actually already available for a few weeks and I've already bought 2 bags of Sugarpova :lol:

The tennis geek in me REALLY wants her to win this tournament :sobbing: If she does, then I think the only historically-prestigious tournaments she'd still be yet to win are the Olympics and damn Miami.

But Rena plays there as well. So I don't want to get my hopes high. But she must reach the final!

Maria needs to bring her focus in every tournament from now on if she wants to really add to that number of tournaments won. She needs to get in this to win it.

Yeah, she must be hungry after that Wim loss.

Good luck Maria. Hoping for Quarters here :cheer:

Please don't withdraw :help:

I don't think Serena/ Maria will win this one, but good luck anyway.

Re: Toronto 2013: About time to finally grab the glass racket, eh? (SharaConnors Chap
 
She's already lost in the finals of AO, IW, Miami, Madrid, FO, Wimbledon, Toronto, Cincy, Beijing, YEC and Olympics.

She only needs Rome, USO and Tokyo runner up trophies to complete them all :eek:
