Montreal should be a good tourny! Pova will be jet lagged, a lot worse for wear from the massive Pity Party, uncomfortable on HC and more interested in showing off her Silver Medal than getting to work playing tennis.
Hogg will earn his keep if he can get her to focus enough to win the first match.
Well, Sharapova played extermely bad in Toronto last year due to windy conditions, don't know how the weather will be this year at Montreal, hope it suits her better and that she'll go deep.
This is a good occasion for her to take back world number one spot, and, to save us from Agg1e (Please, let this never happen Mar1a) !
Maria should withdraw and just focus on Cinni instead. She's gonna be mentally and physically drained after the Olympics. I don't want her to crash out in r3 or r4 of us open. She should practice like hell on the hardcourts and try to go deep in cinni and I think she will be good for US open.
1PM Montreal time is 7h from now. I'd really like to see the draws, I just hope Maria is not tired from Olympics, but I'm sure if she decided to play she is fit for it.
I see only Federer and Serena aren't playing Toronto and Montreal, all the other top players are going, so I guess it's ok.
And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight
And silence that speaks so much louder that words,
Of promises broken
