Chipper Maria Bounces Back
While the legions of Sharapova haters (you know who you are!) may have twittered with glee at last weekend's news that the defending U.S. Open had to bag her semifinal in L.A. against Nadia Petrova due to a painful shin injury, it looks like the schadenfreude party is already over. In her ever-amusing "doodle" posting, the hard-hitting star reveals that her leg felt completely normal after two days of rest and that she's already back out on the practice courts. Racqonteur was happy to hear about her recovery, as well as the arrival of her pre-season orders from Peter Som and Thakoon, which are certain to cause a stir when Maria hits the scene in Manhattan next week.
