maria sharapova ao 2010 practice Maria Sharapova is finally back at the Melbourne Park. The Russian star has arrived in Melbourne, 7 days before the start of the Australian Open 2010.

Maria missed last year’s Aussie Open edition, as she was still recovering from her shoulder injury. She came back to official competitions in early summer of 2009, but never managed to achieve her great shape back, the one that allowed her to win 3 Grand Slam events.

With Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters back in strong shape, Sharapova needs to upgrade her tennis level in order to obtain another major performance.

The 2008 Australian Open champion should be never ruled out though. Maria’s best Grand Slam performance since her 2009 come back is the quarter-final match played at the French Open.

Maria started 2010 with a good exhibition victory against Venus Williams. Sharapova defeated the American in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4.

Sharapova has been selected as seed nr.14 at the Aussie Open. More, she has a streak of 7 wins in a row, caused by her 2008 success. Let’s wait and see if she can keep it up.
