Not her fault

In her Rogers Cup match against Maria Sharapova tonight, Marta Domachowska served 13 double faults. But wait--Sharapova served 17. The match was not on television here, so I have no idea what was wrong with Domachowska, but Sharapova's problem is no puzzle--it is her now chronically bad shoulder. In addition to having problems with her serve because of the injury, Sharapova also suffers from bouts of bursitis.

The world number 3 always sounds positive when she talks about her shoulder problem, but it is obvious that something is quite wrong. I hope she does whatever she needs to do to make things better; I hope there is something that can be done.
