Understand she's singing in the rain; plays Hsieh first and the rest is not that difficult for a "claypova":)

No comments on the draw yet ?? 1. Serena is lucky again , 2. Maria might face Azarenka in the semi final. Let's hope for a good tournament but have my doubts about Maria's motivation. She looks a bit flat. Have fun all between the rain showers, thunder storms and hail !!!

Dartagnan: Yes Maria looks more relax this year at Roland Garros. The pressure of winning the Roland Garros tournament past the last year.  I don't say that Maria will be relaxed during the matches...


Sharapova Gets Korean Test at French Open


Permalink voor ingesloten afbeelding


MOSCOW, May 24 (R-Sport) – Maria Sharapova will start the defense of her French Open title against world No. 42 Hsieh Su-Wei of Taipei, with a possible semifinal against Victoria Azarenka, Friday's draw revealed.


Sharapova and Hsieh have encountered only once, in the third round at last year’s Wimbledon, when the Russian won in straight sets.


The world No. 2 has a possible semifinal against world No. 3 Azarenka, who will play against 36th-ranked Elena Vesnina in round one.


In the other half of the draw, world No. 1 Serena Williams, on a 24-match unbeaten run, will face Georgia’s world No. 83 Anna Tatishvili.


World No. 4 Anna Radwanska is a possible semifinal opponent for the American, whose only title at Roland Garros came 11 years ago.


The season's second Grand Slam tournament starts on Sunday.



"I'd love to open a tennis school for children in my hometown of Sochi." said Sharapova Maria.

PROUD TO DEFEND HER CROWN

If ever a defending champion had the right to feel proud of herself 12 months on, it must be Maria Sharapova.

Roland Garros was always the least likely scene of a Grand Slam triumph for her (remember her own quote describing herself as a “cow on ice”?) but last year she lifted not only the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen but recaptured the world number one spot in the process – a long road back from the career-threatening shoulder injury in her service arm after surgery in the summer of 2008. The global top spot may no longer be hers, but nothing will ever change the fact that Sharapova was French Open champion in 2012.

“It’s very meaningful to come back as defending champion,” smiled Sharapova. It means you have done something pretty good, and you’re coming back to try to defend it. I think it’s one of the best honours you can have as a tennis player. Of course, there’s always a bit of pressure coming back. But the draw looks good.”

But not what you would class as a breeze. True, her opening opponent Su-Wei Hsieh has not been beyond the first round on the French clay in four previous attempts. But possible opponents include Jie Zheng in the third round and the charismatic American Sloane Stephens who made the fourth round here last year before losing to Samantha Stosur. Speaking of whom, the 2011 US Open winner is a face Sharapova might see across the net in the quarter-final, or the 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova. As ever, the Russian does not under-estimate the task.

“I didn’t wake up one day having simply become a good clay-court player,” she says. “I always knew I’d have to work extremely hard to get where I am today. It never came easy and it took many years. But I did feel every year I was getting closer, and last year everything came together in so many ways. I haven’t been back here since that victory and it’s been nice to practise here again.”

Why not? It's possible and also difficult ,but time will show us that she can or not. There is a lot of great players and they're also competing for title . But personally I think she has ability to repeat it again, only thing we can do, is just waiting . Let's see what will happen this year, but if she wants to do it, before everything she must find a solution for Serena problem .

Don't pay attention to Brebis and her "lamentations". She always does that before a toournament:)

She must be so excited and at the same time fears Masha will loose she takes her "precautions"...it's funny

Hé meisje, altijd jammeren voor een tornooi of een wedstrijd; écht niet nodig én slecht voor je

gezondheid:)...moest ze eruitvliegen,nou...dat is het leven héh. Slecht voor je hart wat je doet...DOEI:)

He Tiger, je hebt me door ! Neemt niet weg dat mijn gevoel zegt dat ze er niet klaar voor is. Jammer, want dit zijn de jaren dat het moet gebeuren. Hou deze mail in de gaten en wrijf het maar onder mijn neus als de uitslag anders is. Aan de andere kant neem ik mijn pet af voor Serena als ze wint want je moet het dan toch maar kunnen onder al die druk.  Doei.

We know that Maria will do her best to reach the final. She will defeat several tennis players but her victory at this tournament also depends on the results of other participants at least during the semi-


final, if they will play their best tennis or not. 


So let's make a wish...
