Re: Maria Sharapova in Linz 2019

Maria played once in Linz (2006) and won the title :yeah:

She won the title in 2006 beating Ivanovic, Schnyder and Petrova :worship:
QF: Maria def. Ivanovic 7-6 7-5
SF: Maria def. Schnyder 7-5 7-5
Final: Maria def. Petrova 7-5 6-2

Back then when she used to be mentally strong and her serve was a big weapon :sobbing:
Outside of her Slam titles, the European indoor season brought out the best tennis in Maria IMO.
I will always remember the great tennis she played in these European indoor tournaments :)

Re: Maria Sharapova in Linz 2019

I remember that I watched these matches. Also watched these highlights now.

Maria served a lot better.
She hit the ball harder, more powerful.
She moved better and faster.
Her crosscourt forehand was a weapon.
She was a lot more consistent with less UEs.
And mentally stronger. Maria won the important points.

2006 was an amazing year for Maria :hearts:
Linz was her 12th SF of the year !!! Impressive :worship:
She lost only to players like Henin, Hingis, Safina or Dementieva.

Re: Maria Sharapova in Linz 2019

Maria withdrew from Linz :sobbing::sobbing::sobbing:

https://www.laola1.at/de/red/sport-mix/tennis/wta/news/wta--maria-sharapova-sagt-teilnahme-beim-turnier-in-linz-ab/

Bittere Nachrichten für das WTA-Turnier in Linz (6. bis 13. Oktober). Superstar Maria Sharapova muss ihre Teilnahme am "Upper Austria Ladies Linz 2019" absagen.

Die 32-jährige Russin ließ am Mittwochabend Turnierdirektorin Sandra Reichel wissen, dass neuerlich Probleme mit der Schulter aufgetreten sind, die ihr geplantes und mit Freude erwartetes Antreten in Linz unmöglich machen.

"Es tut mir natürlich sehr leid, dass Maria nicht zu uns nach Linz kommen kann. Aber ich habe Verständnis dafür, denn die Gesundheit der Spielerin hat Vorrang", wird Reichel in einer Aussendung zitiert.
Maria told Linz director Reichel that she has new problems with her shoulder :sad:

The fuck :facepalm:

Didn't she say that she plans to play as many tournaments as she can after her loss to Serena at the USO?
