As long as I've been waiting for this, it just so happens that I'm in the middle of training right now so I'm gonna miss it


Hope you have fun down here ^_^


 


btw...if you wanna try to contact my soon to be boss to request a weekend off for me, just say the word I'll point you in the right direction ;)

It fits right into a date slot which prevents her from Playing Stuttgart. An ideal excuse. Get it through your head, Maria is lazy and doesn't like playing too many tournaments, especially tough ones if she can avoid it.

Business, is what this is. You notice she's playing with Gisela Dulko again? Maybe the same interests that promoted their South American exos a couple years ago.


Everyone here has heard of the venue. The "Atlantis" resort has had regular US TV advertising since it opened.

Get it through your head , Maria has never played a tournament in Germany and I don't blame her for that !!

By the way, what will be Maria's next tournament before Roland Garros? She'll play in Madrid right? Is that her only clay court warm up? Or she'll also play in Rome and defend her Strasbourg title?

If you check under "TOUR " on her main website page , you can see Maria's upcoming tournaments !

i would like to see her playing Rome...it's a nice tournament and traditional

and, about the exo, i think it's a form to test her skills on clay (i think that match it's gonna be on clay, rss)

I dunno much about this event, really, so I searched a little. The venue is at the high-profile Atlantis resort:


 


http://www.atlantis.com/promotions/tennis.aspx 


An Atlantis page says: "Play a round of tennis on one of the three har-tru courts and three hard courts."


about.com says: Har Tru is a very popular brand of "green clay" court surfacing material made of dark gray-green, crushed stone.


If it's a little more grainy than the top-coating at Charleston, that's a good thing!

Hello from the Cove in the Bahamas!! What a place!! Training hard and having fun!! My long time sponsor TAG Heuer just gave me the best birthday present, the Lady Steel and Ceramic Chronograph. I had worn a prototype at a photo shoot a few months ago and fell in love with this watch immediately. I am such a lucky girl!!

María Sharapova beat Gisela Dulko 6-3 6-1 at Atlantis in the Bahamas.


María traveled with her team, her fiance NBA star Sasha Vujacic and with her father Yuri.

Apparently, when a foreign word is assimilated into the English language, all accent marks are removed. Don't ask me why.

Here are a couple videos of the event in the Bahamas. While watching the exhibition match, I was amazed at how quiet (relatively speaking, of course) Sharapova was. Why can't she play like that all the time?

Great stuff.  Thanx, Teddy. HD quality.


Well, it's a small venue--don't need the full 101.2 decibels to fill it...
