Re Maria Sharapova, it is true that she did not play a tune-up this year but she did not play one prior to the AO last year from what I recall and she made the final, so who knows. The second half of the draw is a crap shoot.
Radwanska sucked last year after SW19 in NA on hard courts, she not only lost to Li, she lost to virtually anyone she played back then. Now however, she handled Li and Vinci in straight sets, I can see a difference here, don't you?
