Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Yh if JJ fails to deliver than probably for once in my life I'd want Serena to take the title. Vika has no business winning a clay tournament after Queen of Rome Masha

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Here is the official confirmation:
Link: Sharapova withdraws from Rome
I'm so sorry as well - still - I can't stop thinking that it is a tactical maneuver but I'm not sure how - Does she need rest - does she wanna be in Paris early to practice or doesn't she wanna meet Azarenka and/or Serena as of yet - Maybe she's hoping for a better draw in Paris? - I'm kinda confuzzled?

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Probably a mixture of both, but she never, if ever does this. This isn't like withdrawing 10 minutes before a match a la Serena or withdrawing consecutively a la Vika. She is a professional and she treats her body well, so probably needs some recovery from all the wine she drank last night

Exactly. She shouldn't have played Madrid since she got sick or just play a couple of rounds and then withdraw. That way she'd have been healthy by now and still unbeaten on clay plus Rome>>>>>>>>>>Madrid.
But the positive thing is she'll probably be fresher for Wimbledon still needs to bring it for RG and defend that title

BTW someone with a good record should make the RG thread!

She just tweeted herself, she had illness in Madrid from which she didn't recover yet and it caught on her again last night.
It's just a bad cold/flu.
All this if we want to stick to the "official and serious" news and not going in the "It was Grigor's birthday" gossip territory.

OH YES, forgot she's aiming for a second Wimbledon title this year.
Actually, I like the smell of this tank

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

It's disappointing of course, but at least she's not injured. I agree with everyone else that Rome should be a premier mandatory and Madrid a premier, but as it is you can't blame her for not skipping Madrid. In a way her being a little bit under the weather at Madrid and Rome is good news in that she'll probably be able to play even better than she has done when she feels 100% healthy.

Svetlio is making it, I believe. Which reminds me that I need to make the artwork for that thread!

Maria loves playing in Rome so I think that if she was OK she wouldn't have withdrawn. She probably got worse again last night because she partied too much and decided it's better to rest and be 100% healthy for the French since this virus is recurring.
I doubt she'd withdraw only because of tactics. She's really professional and doesn't tank tournaments this was her first mid-tournament withdrawal since 2008.

Also saw this on twitter:
Beyond The Baseline ‏@SI_BTBaseline 2m
Maria Sharapova on the phone speaking to press about her withdrawal. #wtahttp://instagram.com/p/ZaR1c6N5hS/

So if she didn't even go to do a press conference means she's sick and needs bed rest. Probably has a fever or something. Knowing Maria I think she'd even play if she was as sick as when in Madrid (tissues and all )

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Definitely want Serena to take the title now... though Errani would be hilarious...

Kind of want Azarenka and Serena to play in the final now as well, just to see how Serena responds to the Doha loss, as well as Azarenka wagging her No. 1 finger around, despite the fact she'd lost the No. 1 ranking.

Aaaaawww - I wish she wouldn't have mentioned her illness and Madrid - Now it looks like an excuse for her loss in the final - People already gossip about her illness after the Olympics

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Like I said she must be really sick
@Barry_FlatmanST : Maria Sharapova maintains she felt unwell all night and was far too ill to even turn up at the Foro Italico to explain her pull out
