Wooow, we are getting slow here. None of us did start a topic for next week's Grand Slam ??  Let me open the comments by saying that I am very exited about this season. 3 girls fighting for the highest ranking and a Grand Slam win. Pressure is on for Maria, as she needs to defend lots of points. There must be a way to bring down that Serena wall   Were it comes to deal with pressure , Maria unfortunately is the weakest of the 3 ladies but when in love, she hopefully can beat the world !?! Let's hope her injury is over, have not seen any practise pictures the last few days.

I just rang the organisers of the Australian Open . They realise that it is necessary to put Azarenka and Williams in the same half of the draw , to get the best final you can think of ; Williams - Sharapova. Outcome to be official on Friday.

Maria Sharapova practises







The Russian world No.2 was hitting well from the baseline with hitting partner Vladimir Voltchkov, the former Wimbledon semifinalist from Belarus, and occasionally with coach Thomas Hogstedt.


Sharapova, the 2012 Australian Open finalist, was constantly encouraged by Hogstedt, who said, ‘Great shot!’ and ‘Perfect Maria’.


As the rallies intensified in the hour-long session, he said: ‘Hit it like it’s match point.’


During the breaks, Sharapova sat alone and periodically flexed her shoulder.


Sharapova is the first of big-name players to arrive in Melbourne for the first Grand Slam tournament of the year, which gets underway at Melbourne Park on 14 January. 


They will be practising in hot conditions, with the temperature in Melbourne expected to reach 41 degrees on Friday, and in the high 30s early next week.

Actually, the first GS is about to begin, and I agree that everyone is excited about this season. All the fans can hardly wait to see the professional tennis players performing on the courts. Maria´s last year performances were outstanding, as it was evidenced in winning the French Open, which is one of the most demanding tournaments due to the fact that all the players have to have the ability to play in clay, and now I believe, without undermining the other pro tennis players´ abilities, that Maria has the maturity, the character, and the preparation for succeeding in every tennis match and for overcoming all the difficulties that might appear in the way. It will be such an extraordinary year for Maria and all the fans

Anyone any news out Maria's injury ? Fully recovered or playing the tourny with less power. Few more hours before the draw comes out. Hope the tournament directors stick to the made arrangement, Azarenka- williams in the same half ! See you tomorrow. Will Grigor join Maria during the Sugarpova launch ? We'll see.

Draw good and not good. Maria in the stronger half of the draw, Li, Kerber, Stosur,Radwanska,Venus but Serena with Azarenka in the same half. They did listen to me !!! Match by match and we will see. Venus in the 3rd round, tough one. Maria just doesn't like to play the 2 Williams ladies.

Take a look at the AO homepage. Gossip  about Maria dating Serena's  ex.  A memo has been sent out to the press who will be at the launching of Sugapova today....... NO QUESTIONS about it.


Exerpt:  










Grigor Dimitrov is reportedly dating

WELL
this is awkward.





Multi-faceted tennis princess and famed grunter Maria Sharapova is reportedly
courting a new beau.




The Russian is believed to be dating 21-year-old Bulgarian up-and-comer
Grigor Dimitrov. However there's one interesting footnote: Dimitrov is a former
beau of Sharapova's greatest rival and former world No.1, Serena Williams.




It's understood Williams dated the much-younger Dimitrov briefly last year
following her public split from US rapper Common.




 




The tennis pairing later went their separate ways; Williams is now linked to
her French coach, Patrick Mouratoglou.

Good catch , right ?? Ex boyfriend , I don't think so. They were playing for the same acedamy, so therefore you meet each other more often.  Grigor seems nice, well dressed, down to earth, looks hot, is positive. What more do you want. Let's hope they get along together. My only worry, age difference. Bye Philli, jealous ?

Jealous???, are you crazy.  They got nothing in common.  Cradle snatching...she's filthy rich, he's poor as a church mouse. He's handsome, she's getting old and wrinkly.  He seems like a nice guy...she's a bitch.  I posted it because I thought somebody might be interested.

Would say nothing about this AO-draw but can't deny our friend "C.T." did it again.

Clearly a "Russian quarter" and some other hanky-panky that hits the eye...oh well, used to that by now.

  Oh Philli, definately jealous at Maria having no wrinkles after you looked in the mirror yourself, LOL. Couples with nothing in common are most of the times having the best marriages.   Do us all a favour and admit that you wish them the best.  Can't wait to see a pic of the two together.
