Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

A win over Garcia will be a good sign for her shoulder. After all, she lost to Michelle Lacher de Brito at 2013 Wimbledon when her shoulder was non-responsive.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Hmm, not sure what to think. She does seem genuinely relaxed and optimistic in her interviews (whereas I still think she looked stressed and on edge for much of last spring, even before we found out about the injury), but at the same time, it just seems a bit too good to be true that the issue could've gone away completely. Plus, a few things in that New York Times article worried me (it said something like her shoulder was too vulnerable for her to even do push-ups?).

I have pretty much no expectations for the Australian season, but hopefully, with luck and if she stays healthy, she hits her stride by the IW/Miami swing.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Her shoulder doesn't need three-set matches. I hope to see Maria finish quickly in the early rounds.

"Its important to get as many matches and get the rust out.
"Its nice to be here in Brisbane. I felt like I finally made it last year (to play a first Queensland tournament) and then had to withdraw with an injury - but I am feeling really good this time."

I approve

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Waiting for Masha's first match there are some matches in Brisbane worth watching through StreamHunter (if you can be awake that late/early)

03:00 CET - S. Lisicki vs M. Rybarikova
05:30 CET - A. Petkovic vs B. Mattek-Sands

Nope.

She plays on Monday.

He/She meant we can at least entertain ourselves watching those MD matches for today while we wait for Maria's debut the following day.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Pat Rafter Arena (Not Before 7:00 P.M Brisbane Time)

[3] Maria Sharapova (RUS) VS Caroline Garcia (FRA)

Check the times according to where you live so you'll get to see Masha's debut in 2014.


Oh, and Dimitrov plays Robin Hasse immediately after the conclusion of this match.


EDIT: ^ Beat me to it. oh well. Two is better than one.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Sad to be missing Maria's first competitive match back, but hope she closes it out in 2 with a positive winners:UE ratio at least
