I wish she’d just suck it up and play qualities. It’d be a good look, and clearly showing up to big tournaments with no match prep isn’t working out for her. She’s in a tough spot though with how fragile her body is.

This year she beat the third seed and very nearly took out the player who would finish 2019 ranked #1 🤷

she'll never play Qs. imagine the embarrasement if she loses, which could very well happen, i mean she lost to the likes of diatchenko

The 128-qualie draw could bite here. It results in a cut-off 4 places higher than the old 96-draw, making it more likely that Sharma just misses DA.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

People forget that Maria was playing very well in the beginning of 2019 - beating Wozniacki and was close to beating Barty who went later to win slam title, Miami and will end up as a Number 1.

Sharapova - Halep - Kvitova

There's only 5 WCs after the French/USO reciprocal + Asia-Pacific playoff, then Kim is probably getting one if she requests for it. So 4 left.



Then, those playing in the FC final are probably getting one too (Sharma, Hon). Gavrilova too. So out of Birrell, Inglis, Aiava, Cabrera, Hives... and Sharapova.



If Sharma makes DA then I think Maria will probably get one. Otherwise I can't see only 3 Aussies getting WCs... but I wouldn't be surprised if Maria gets one either way.


It is 4 , there is also an Aussie playoff for the main draw WC

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

she belongs to the past, hopefully they'll give WCs to younger players with a future

That's even worse. So 3 left assuming Clijsters asks for one. Interesting decisions ahead for TA to make..

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

The Aussie women in the 100-200 ranking bracket are all fairly young (19-24). They aren't veterans who have had dozens of WCs. Assuming one of them gets the play-off WC, and Sharma doesn''t get DA, there are more sensible candidates than WCs available.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

1 x champion (2008), 3 x runner-up (2007, 2012, 2015), 3 x semi-finalist (2005, 2006, 2013), 1 x quarter-finalist (2016).

I think, on those stats alone, MS deserves a WC more than the likes of Priscilla Hon or Ellen Perez, thank you.

Anyway it doesn't matter, both she and Azarenka are well and truly at the end of their careers and both women need to face facts. Golovin and Clijsters are even more deluded.

Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?

obviously she's gonna get one - organizers are not a bunch of haters on TF, they know that Maria will glue bums to the seats as long as she is playing professional tennis...
