Re: Any thoughts on why Sharapova isn't playing any Wimbledon tuneups?

She doesn't need one. She did very well at last year's Wimbledon and this year's Australian without playing any warm-ups, so she's obviously found an effective pre-Slam routine. And even if she doesn't go in with any grasscourt matches under her belt, she's had PLENTY of matchplay this year (I think her matches so far this year is a personal record for this early in the year), so she certainly isn't going to be rusty from a mental standpoint.

Much as it pains me to say it, I think we'll only see her play Birmingham again if she loses early at RG one year (and let's be honest, Claypova won't be losing early ).
