Maria Sharapova announced on her website that we’ll finally see her play competitively, and this time in singles, unlike her brief return in March. The Russian has received a wildcard and will compete at next week’s Warsaw Open.
Here’s what Sharapova, who has fallen to No.65 in the rankings, said about her comeback and how she’s been spending her time:
I am very happy to report that I will make my singles return to the tour in Warsaw Poland, the week of May 18. Although it has not been an easy process these last few months, I really believe it’s made me a much stronger person in so many areas of my life professionally and personally […] I have been training quite a lot in Florida and as you may well know, there’s not much to do here except train and cook. My cooking abilities have certainly risen in the last few months, and I actually find it quite therapeutic.

Finally!! I’m gonna have to wait to really believe it but that’s some really good news!!
Me too, Cath. But we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
I’m finally going to get to see her play. Whether she wins or lose, I’m still happy to see her back on her the court.
I think that this will actually be her true comeback, but still I’ll have to see it to believe it. It’s great news for the tour.
Bróna, I also have a feeling that this will be her true comeback, but I hope it will last, I hope that the injury won’t reappear or something.
God bless her in this comeback
