yes she withdrew from clay warmup tournaments that wouldve gained her more points (she played none last year) which would get her closer to justine in teh rankings and give her better preperation for her worst gs. she also faked getting a cortisone shot just so she could excuse a few losses.:lol:Made final of Australian Open and now into another slam semifinal... Do you think she is/was really injured in the first place?
Or just used as an excuse by Maria and her fans?
exactly both rome and charlestson are tier 1s and she wouldve gained points at both. im sure being number one is more important than makign excuses for a few loses.Why make us an excuse to pull out of tournaments? Don't you think she would rather get practice and ranking points by playing Charleston and Rome?
Obviously her injury was real, you don't take cortisone shots for fun.
Why are people so suspicious? Players dont have much to gain by lying about an injury. She never even used it as an excuse.
USO 2006Seeing as Maria went from an average of one double fault per match
