And even last year in Rome, RG, Cincy she never called the trainer, yet...

Anyway, I personally reckon that she has some discomfort at the least -there was a moment in the McHale match in which she made a face that reminded me a lot of that Cincy match- and also how she looks nervous as soon as her serve is not working. To me it speaks more of a " I know something is not right" situation rather than a worrying about losing the set/match so to speak.

And as another poster noted, it's not the percentage that is indicative, but the speed and boy if she's serving weak. Maybe she's doing it to protect her shoulder, but the thing is that she doesn't raise it when in danger, as if she isn't capable of doing it, not not wanting it.

Even last year against Vika at RG, when we now know she was in pain, she hit several high speed serve (180 and more km/h) that bailed her out several times. Now they are MIA.

In a nutshell, I think she still has problems, but she has them since her comeback this year. Obviously at the end of the day we will never know, just like we don't know the full story of what happened last year and the state of her shoulder. But for example I think her being emotional in the Stuttgart win has a lot to do with that. Just my two cents.

Hes right you know. If the serve speed is in such disparity as compared to stuttgart tomorrow vs stosur, something is wrong

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

I have thought about how to ask something I have wondered about....try not to be offended.. I admit....seeing Maria play against McHale, along with a couple photos from the match reminded me of the question. Do women who play tennis at this level, ever have their performance affected because it is that time of the month....their period affects them either physically or mentally? I would be surprised if it does not happen to some players, some times. Even if only for ten minutes.

SgtTimmy would write that she's pregnant with Radek's kids if he could. Take everything he says about Pova with a grain of salt. I personally didn't see any difference, not even the HQ pictures Jimmie posted.

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

That's fair enough....I remember running a you tube last October to show how ridiculous the rumours were about Maria being pregnant........I do wonder about my basic question.....whether time of the month ever affects anyone. If somebody could limit it to about ten minutes in a tennis match through sheer will..it would be Maria.

Well, being a woman - and I guess you being a man- I can tell you that yes, it can affect you. Just like a cold, fatigue, illness can affect you. Obviously it depends from woman to woman and even to the specific month.

Moreover, keep in mind that during that time of the month you are more prone to anemia, and that means being more tired/weak/difficulty to concentrate.
Obviously being who she is she has the best doctors/advisors who can give her the best medical options (advil, painkillers, diet, etc.) for her and also to plan in advance. So I think given that she's playing tennis every week even before she hit puberty, she knows how to handle these situations.

But to answer your question, yeah, it can be a bitch, especially if you are someone who has a painful cycle.
Also I remember an interview (the journo asked why at one point she started played badly so asked what happened) where JJ (who else? ) spoke about that saying that in the middle of a match she began feeling sick and had fits in her stomatch like knives and that she was lucky to have finished her match in two sets because in no way she would have endured that for another set.
She said " You know, it's not easy being a woman, you have to play even during that time of the month"

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

Thank you so much for such a straightforward, plausible account of possible situations. In this case, I thought all the stuff about the shoulder was maybe a little overdone.....Maria seemed to lose her focus for several minutes during that match against McHale.....no need to automatically say..."it is that time of the month", but like several other possibilities, it should not just be ruled out. I hope it is not....she would be about due again around the quarterfinals of the French. But, if so, it would not keep her from winning.
