Masha‘s nine-month layoff from singles play possibly ends at next week’s Warsaw Open, where she shares the same quarter as top seed Caroline Wozniacki and Alona Bondarenko (Alona upset Kuznetsova at Madrid this week).
In the same half of that draw are Jelena Dokic and Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Lurking in the other half are Dani Hantuchova and Zheng Jie.
Sharapova, who enters the tourney as a wildcard, has been sidelined with a shoulder injury since August of last year. She played doubles at Indian Wells this year and lost in the first round.
