Good Luck To Maria. I just hope the ankle is only a minor knock because it could be difficult for her as it is her first clay tournament. Possibly the worst surface for Twists etc.

haha, I was wondering when this thread might appear, nice work Jakim

With any luck the ankle won't bother her too much . Despite the stellar field, hopefully Maria can go deep into this tourney and repeat or better her excellent performance in Rome last year.

I can't wait. So excited with this tourney and I don't now why.
