Re: Will Sharapova have to play Q for AO?
If anyone thinks that Craig Tiley won't give Sharapova a WC (if she needs one) is delusional.
The AO has a ticket called "ground pass" which means you can see every court except RLA and MCA. If you have Sharapova on Show Court 3 on Day 2, that's a huge sell. The Australian general public don't know she's awful, they just care about seeing a big name with their ticket, her name and seeing her. This year, there was a free warm up match on MCA with Sharapova the Friday before the AO started and it was packed.
If she wants a WC at AO, she will get one.
