She isnt due for another slam until 2010 anyway. That is her pattern.
if her shoulder is healthy she should be playing
Let me get this straight, did she just have an injury or did she have surgery?
Shes in rehab and shes not fully recovered from that shoulder injury since last year.
Pretty sure she had surgery.
Can you say 2010 French Open Sharapova for the win. I wonder if they take patterns into account for betting. Like is Serena's odds upped for the Australian Open in odd numbered years?
I have that feeling also, but why the big secret? :?
This isn't politics, Venus Williams had wrist surgery back in 2006 and she never mentioned it, until her mother stated it in an interview sometime last year. Either way, Maria Sharapova's comeback will be a great stimulus for the WTA tour, whenever she does come back healthy.
Sharapova's ranking takes a dump now. Probably down to #15.
At least that's more bonding time for her and her new boyfriend. Anything to make the MASHA fans go WAAAAAAH!
omg she has a boyfriend? what sort of a deaf guy could be so lucky
I'm in two minds on this: I think it is great that she put the rehab before the tournament, that is the way it should be. However, it means that there is one less "good" player around.
Thinking of it, it may mean that I'll be able to watch some more AO matches with the sound turned up.
She did admit to it (I knew I had seen it somewhere) http://www.usatoday.com/sports/tennis/2008-12-30-sharapova-reveals-shoulder-surgery_N.htm
ah no! ohwell it's Kirilenko's for the taking now.
I don't know about how her shoulder is doing, if it's healed she should play, even if she's not exactly "ready." if she's physically ready, why not?
Unlike Sarah Palin, I don't read all of the circulations, and I have never seen this article. Hope she gets better soon and makes comeback when her body is ready. Speaking of which, when is Capriati coming back?
Well, that is an even more important withdrawal than Davydenko on the men's side.
When Masha is on there are very few players on the WTA tour who can beat her. But the recurrent injuries she is struggling are really hurting her carreer.
The WTA can never get all its stars together, and that is what is destroying the WTA and making it the sad mess it has become of late. The best it was was mid 2003 when the Williams were at their peak, Henin and Clijsters were starting to enter their primes and seriously challenge the Williams, Capriati and Mauresmo were still very strong and threats, Davenport was also still a big threat. Since then the talented Sharapova has joined the fray, but the majority of them alternate being hurt and injured or slumping or bored, including Maria herself. By 2004 Henin is out much of the year with illness, Clijsters almost the whole year with injury, the Williams are not back up to snuff yet. By 2005 Capriati is gone for good, Henin not back up to her former form except on clay, Williams even more out of it. Now we have the Williams coming back to their best form in many years, but Henin is now retired at only 25, Clijsters having retired a couple years ago at 23, Mauresmo is close to retiring probably, Davenport is done, and Maria is hurting.
Oh NO. The last thing WTA needed, and the last thing I want to see. Although I've feared this would happen already.
Until she ditches that lasso forehand, she'll continue having problems on that shoulder.
lol good one.
Everyone does miss Sharapova a lot. Poor Maria . WTA need you to spice up the tour.
According to her ex, the only place she is loud is on court... :lol:
Who is Sharapova boyfriend?
Whats up with people saying she should play? If she is injured she is just that, let her fully recover first....when she is better then she would obviously play!
The shoulder must not be that great if she is not going to attempt to defend any of those ranking points.
the usage of cotton wool is underrated. ..
he probably began with only 50% of normal hearing to begin with when they met and now 25 % left to go,so thats the reason...
It's not you sir, here is hoping she gets well soon. I miss the little pointless banter.
Dick Ebersol's son, I can't remember his first name.
I fear the end is near.
Me too. I just don't like the feeling of this. I suspect the shoulder is not really OK.
Yes, an acute injury is one thing. But a chronic injury, one that is so important to her style of game, is another to overcome. I really wonder if she will be able to overcome this. Maybe short spurts here and there, but I fear this is the injury that will hamper her career, and possibly end it too short.
She should play lefty. Might turn out like someone else I know....
Hahaha Manz, for a moment i thought you were someone else i know.
Anyway, sorry to burst your bubble but Masha isn't as talented as him.
i think she's finished.
even if she comes back, the shoulder will constantly bother her again.
Are you Nadal Freak? Have you been all along :shock:?
He's my long lost cousin.......
Ahh...good. I was wondering if I needed to bring earplugs to my matches at Rod Laver Arena. Now I guess that's one less thing to worry about.
I think her serve is the real culprit.
