On whether she’ll play the season-ending WTA Championships: “That’s my goal. I really want to finish with that tournament this year. But I also want to heal my shoulder. It’s going to take as much time as it needs. Bursitis is a bit tricky because there’s not much you can do for it except wait for it to get better. I’m not a patient person so that makes it extremely difficult.”

If i can believe the Larry King-interviews,Twitter,FB & some other "info", ALL she'll play will be the above.

Fans of the Asian events regret she won't play there...not yet 100% sure about that, but i'll follow this...

FIRST QUALIFIED FOR ISTANBUL...and yes, MASHA is on the list !!!

Maria Sharapova, Agnieszka Radwanska and the doubles team of Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci have all qualified for the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Istanbul 2013, to be staged at the Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul from October 22 to 27, 2013.

The Top 8 singles players and Top 4 doubles teams will compete in Istanbul for a record-setting $6 million prize money purse and the most prestigious title on the WTA calendar after the Grand Slams.

"We are excited to add Maria, Agnieszka, Sara and Roberta to the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Istanbul player field, although Maria continues to rehab from her injury," Stacey Allaster, the Chairman & CEO of the WTA, commented on the announcement on Monday. "We are less than a month away from the Championships and are eager to continue building towards what will be another sensational tournament for the fans in Istanbul and tennis fans around the world."

Sharapova's 2013 season has been highlighted by Premier-level titles at Indian Wells and Stuttgart and three more finals (Miami, Madrid and the French Open). This is the seventh time she has qualified for the WTA Championships - she is a one-time champion (2004) and two-time runner-up (2007, 2012).

The Russian's participation this year remains questionable as she recovers from a right shoulder injury.

Radwanska's year has been highlighted by a Premier-level title at Sydney and two International-level titles at Auckland and Seoul, and she has been to one more final (Stanford). This is the third time she has qualified for the WTA Championships - her best result was reaching the semifinals last year.

Errani and Vinci have qualified for the doubles event for the second straight year together - Vinci is actually here for the third time (she qualified alongside Sandrine Testud in 2001). The Italians' year has been highlighted by their third Grand Slam doubles title at the Australian Open and two more Premier-level doubles titles (Paris [Indoors] and Doha). They have reached three more finals (Sydney, Rome and the French Open). They have been No.1 in doubles separately or together since last October.

Following two successful, record-breaking editions, Istanbul hosts the WTA Championships for the third and final year in 2013. In 2012, the tournament attracted more than 73,000 fans during six days of competition, the highest attendance at the year-end event since 2000. Broadcast coverage reached 167 countries, and the overall hours produced increased 25 percent, including live matches, match replays and highlights. Nearly 42 million fans followed the on-court and behind-the-scenes action via WTA social media and digital platforms, and it was a record-setting week for the official WTA website that week, with approximately 4.8 million page impressions and nearly 500,000 unique visitors.

Li Becomes Fifth Qualifier For Istanbul !!!! YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS:) (sings Bowie's "Chinagirl":)


Li Na has qualified for the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Istanbul, to be held from October 22 to 27, 2013. She is the fifth player to qualify for the eight-woman singles event, following Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Maria Sharapova and Agnieszka Radwanska.

The Top 8 singles players and Top 4 doubles teams will compete in Istanbul for a record-setting $6 million prize money purse and the most prestigious title on the WTA calendar after the Grand Slams.

"Congratulations to Li Na on securing her qualification for the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Istanbul for the third year in a row," Stacey Allaster, Chairman & CEO of the WTA, said of the 2011 French Open champion's qualification announcement. "Her personality and exciting brand of tennis endears her to tennis fans around the world, as Li continues to inspire generations tennis players."

"I'm so happy to have qualified again for the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Istanbul as one of the Top 8 players this season," Li said of the announcement. "I had a great time in Istanbul last year and I'm looking forward to coming back and playing my best tennis for the fans in Turkey."

Having finished 2011 at No.5 and 2012 at No.7, Li has had another fantastic season on the WTA, with some very strong performances at the Grand Slams (finals of the Australian Open, quarterfinals at Wimbledon and semifinals of the US Open) as well as winning her seventh WTA title in Shenzhen.

This is Li's third time playing the season finale, and all consecutive - 2011, 2012, and now 2013.

Following two successful, record-breaking editions, Istanbul hosts the WTA Championships for the third and final year in 2013. In 2012, the tournament attracted more than 73,000 fans during six days of competition, the highest attendance at the year-end event since 2000. Broadcast coverage reached 167 countries, and the overall hours produced increased 25 percent, including live matches, match replays and highlights.

Of course I didn't know! What do you mean? 


Yeah, I asked it special, because when we check Maria's tour we see she will play at China Open after some days, NO Maria at that tournament! Then Tokyo and again No Maria


So When will she play? I think that Brebis is right, we won't see Maria's match at this season any more! Maybe 2014...
