Has anyone seen anything about Maria training for the exho?
Yes. She is in Italy and training with Piatti, visited Tourin and had a hit there too. She's also posting pretty regularly about her trainings on her IG. Mostly from the gym but I think she's on court too.
She had a Q&A on her IG a few days ago and she's definitely playing in Abu Dhabi :)

Dark mode is definitely better for the evenings but I hate it - and no smilies? Awfullll.

Looking forward to Maria playing Anisimova in Abu Dhabi because I've wanted that match to happen for a while, so at least I'll get it in some capacity.

She didn´t play any WTA event before Melbourne?

Yeah I’d love to know if how her schedule is for Australia. She’ll need a lot of help for WC since she can’t gain MD direct entry. I don’t see her playing qualifying rounds at all.

When will the forum restore the social media buttons in the post editing box? Now you have to type the codes yourself to embed a youtube video or a tweet.
Well I was wrong, you just need to post the link if you want to embed a social media post. But other problems are: you can't edit a post after 24 hours; you can't delete your posts.

Amanda talks about Maria in this article


Since the Nike deal, Anisimova is now spoken of in the same way as Sharapova, whom she idolized as a kid. She even had a poster of the Russian superstar hanging in her childhood bedroom.

“I love her fighting spirit on and off the court,” she said.

As a budding athlete, Anisimova watched Sharapova play at the Miami Open, and, when she was 8 years old, her hero signed her favorite hat.

“[It was] an amazing moment for me,” she said.

Anisimova isn’t sure where the autographed cap is these days, but she and Sharapova have forged a more tangible bond. They share an agent, Max Eisenbud and sat together at his 2018 wedding.

“I was like ‘Wait, Maria is at my table!’” the teen said. “It was a really fun night.”
