Maria Sharapova in Rogers Cup 2008

Rogers Cup 2008 is knocking at the door now. The Tier I tournament on WTA tour will be held at the Uniprix Stadium in Montreal, Canada from 26 July 2008. Since Wimbledon 2008, Rogers Cup is going to be first major tournament where top 3 players of WTA ranking are going to take part. The tournament is presented by National Bank. Defending Champion Justine Henin will not be bale to defend her title since she declared her retirement from professional tennis earlier this year.

World no. 3 Maria Sharapova will take part in the tournament. As I mentioned earlier, the Russian star is going to play her first tournament since her disappointing performance in Wimbledon 2008, where she was eliminated at the second round after a shocking defeat to Alla Kudryavtseva. The 21-year old Russian was unimpressive at French Open 2008 too as she failed to reach the quarter final after losing to fellow Russian Dinara Safina at the fourth round.

However, Maria Sharapova started the year with wining her third career grand slam title at Australian Open 2008. Now, ahead of U.S. Open 2008, she must look for a confidence booster performance at Rogers Cup 2008. Sharapova fans are eagerly waiting to see Sharapova dominating the courts. Maria Sharapova will also represent Russia in this year Beijing Olympics Games.

World no. 1 Ana Ivanovic and 7th ranked Venus Williams have also confirmed their participation at Rogers Cup 2008.
