Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Not a shock to me
Ofc I would've loved to see her somehow magically power through the draw and snatch the YEC title which would be hilarious. But in all seriousness, having a lengthy injury time out and then your first match back is against a guaranteed 8th seed If she didn't come back until IW I still wouldn't be surprised. What's better - coming back too soon a la 2009 and putting us through utter drama, or giving it time and starting fresh next year? And in no way do I discount her dedication to the sport, no doubt the naysayers are touting that she's finished/practically retired/in it for the money etc etc. But more fool them tbh

I agree she definitely needs matches these days to perform well at majors but like Andy said, she can very well play Auckland or Brisbane she was on the entry list this year before withdrawing because of injury so maybe she will play .

She is stubborn about it no doubt but she would have played this year if it wasn't for the injury I'm sure.

She only opted out of playing AO warmups the last couple of years because she was just coming off full seasons both times so could get away with it. I'm pretty sure even she wouldn't be stupid enough to go straight into a Slam having not played in nearly 6 months and being in sucky form even before that IF she's healthy enough to play the AO (which obviously is still a big "if" at this point), surely she'll play a warm-up this time.

Anyway, even though I was still deluding myself into thinking she might play the YEC, I guess realistically it wasn't going to happen. I guess on balance it probably would've been stupid rushing back and jeopardising her recovery "just" for that.

I don't think it will be that bad. At least there's no op to recover from this time.

Maybe, maybe not. What worries me most is that this bursitis won't wear off traceless which shortly may lead to another surgery, that case her career is over for sure...

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Sigh. Expected but still disappointing. I just really hope she's healthy for the AO.

I would rather not watch her play then to watch her flop to the likes of Greta Arn, Petkovic, Date-Krum, Cibulkova, Wozniacki, etc. actually

Well Cronin tweeted her shoulder is much better but not ready for YEC. And she'll be back on the practise courts in two weeks

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Guys, maybe everything is not that bad
Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters 35m
Sharapova camp says shoulder feeling lot better but not enough time 2 get ready 4 Champs. Scheduled 2 be back at practice in 2 weeks-ish

@TennisReporters: Sharapova will name a new coach in early November and no I don't know who (yet)
