Sharapova stays silent, Safina happy to chat

Maria Sharapova kept her lips zipped, while another former world No1, Dinara Safina, wasn't so shy as the big guns came out to play in Auckland yesterday.

After rain caused her to miss out on a hit at the ASB Classic venue on Tuesday, Sharapova made the most of the fine conditions by spending three hours training on centre court.

With her two coaches she practised between 11am and 1pm and then again for an hour from 4pm.

But although her preparations for the tournament have begun, Sharapova continued to give the silent treatment to the media and won't do any interviews until she's contractually obliged to on Saturday, two days out from the tournament opener.

It's disappointing that the highest-profile player to play at the Classic has chosen to snub local media because it damages the buildup for the tournament.

But Safina didn't have the same issues and chatted away after an hour on one of the back courts.

There is none of the hype around Safina that there is with Sharapova, but it's arguable she should be considered the tournament favourite. Safina may not have a serve as good as Sharapova's, but she possesses a devastating backhand and, now injury-free, has her eyes set on quickly moving from her lowly world ranking of 63 into the top 10 at least.......

Wow she did a lot of practice

Probably staying silent for a good reason.
