Re: Sharapova signs with HEAD - official debut in Auckland on Monday

JAN. 1 2011- Maria Sharapova will announce a new deal with HEAD rackets on Monday, TR has learned. The five-year deal is similar to that she had with Prince, somewhere in the range of $2 million annually. Sharapova will have her own signature line of rackets with HEAD, as well as a junior racket line.

The former No. 1 announced a couple of weeks ago that she had ended her 10-year relationship with Prince. She has been play testing her new racket since early November.

Sharapova is scheduled to play Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro in the first round of Auckland. If the top seed wins the match, she will not accept a wild card into the next week’s tournament in Sydney, as she’s figuring that getting at least two matches in Auckland will be enough before she heads to Melbourne for the Australian Open, where she won her last major in 2008. -MC

Is she serious with this shit? Two matches going into a major is not enough, especially for someone struggling with her form. Yes, I know Serena did it in 2007, but that is the exception not the rule. Good luck with that Maria, I hope for your sake, you don't have a first round loss again.

Re: Sharapova signs with HEAD - official debut in Auckland on Monday

2 matches are definitely not enough. If she looses before the semifinal, she should play Sydney.

Re: Sharapova signs with HEAD - official debut in Auckland on Monday

If she wins against CSN, it doesn't mean she's tanking the 2nd round. Sydney is an emergency precaution, if Cronin has this info correctly.

Re: Sharapova signs with HEAD - official debut in Auckland on Monday

Even if she wins the Auckland 2011, she should play in Sydney, just to figure out the real level she'll have to deal with at the 2011 Aussie Open, as Sydney's field is really tough ...
Prince was a perfect choice for Sharapova, HEAD is not enough classious ...

She may think she likes head. But she doesnt love it half as much as Sexlana.

Re: Sharapova signs with HEAD - official debut in Auckland on Monday

I wonder who of Svetlana, Victoria or Maria will be HEAD's major figure
I think it will be Maria, but a little doubt keeps on.

Head Hierachy:

1. Djoker
2. Murray
3. Masha

The rest are really just fillers.


The only thing I'm really excited about is the official press release // what Masha's (well, her team) is gonna post on FB. Are they gonna admit that Prince f*cked up her shoulder or are they gonna praise HEAD as a "leading brand in racket sports" yadda yaddda blah blah blub?


Ok, so if Masha loses her first match, she's gonna play Sydney, if she loses her 2nd she's not? Oh well, better win this tourney than, Mash.

Maria always does this though, as she normally goes to Hong Kong and plays 2 or 3 singles matches. And with the exception of last year, she always did well in Melbourne.

She should come to Sydney to get used to her new racquet.
