Sharapova's Dubai Draw!

Masha vs. Szavay in the first round!

Not a great draw for either of them I'm afraid.

Re: Sharapova's Dubai Draw!

Should be a comfortable win for Maria, if Agnes's current form is any indication.

Re: Sharapova's Dubai Draw!

Well for some reason Maria tends to do better in tournaments with harder draws. So I guess it is not that bad for her. probably it is goiing to be easier to motivate herself

Yeah after the Australian Open, short of having to face Justine in the first round, Venus in the second, and Serena in the third round, any draw will seem like a cupcake one in comparison.

Re: Sharapova's Dubai Draw!

Anyways Maria has had tough draws in the past, not only AO 08... Remember last year in Miami, she had Venus in 3rd round and Serena in 4th round?? She also had Venus in the 4th round in Wimbledon..

Re: Sharapova's Dubai Draw!

The draw isn't great for most since so many top players are playing a tier II tournament. I think it's better than playing someone like Vaidisova in your first match like Ivanovic (it's Ana's second match but she has a bye so technically Nicole is her first match). I just don't know what happens to the draw in case Ivanovic withdraws.

It's actually a good draw for Maria I feel. She does better with tougher draws too if you've noticed. She's just playing for the title in Doha, that's why the Dubai draw and upcoming tournament seems a bit much. Two tournaments in two consecutive weeks with good opposition. She might feel tired next week. Hopefully not. But Maria can do it.

Yeah I think it's because she knows things won't be easy for her so she'll be motivated from the start. Easy draws have to potental to make players relax too much.

Re: Sharapova's Dubai Draw!

Viewing the draw, I know Mauresmo is not at her best but I think thats her bigger opposition to get to the finals.
