Maria Sharapova has said she is happy that she will be able to compete at the WTA Finals and it will be a big thing if she manages to stay healthy. The world number three thinks that Serena Williams’ withdrawal from Singapore does not increase her chances of winning the event.
Sharapova accepted that it was frustrating for her to stay from some tournaments during the last few months and it will affect her chances in Singapore but at least she had the privilege of having a break as she had already qualified for the event.
When the Russian was asked to comment if Serena’s absence for the event has increased her chances of winning the event, she replied, "Look, it's a big step for me to be here and feel that I am healthy. It will be a bigger step that I'll be able to compete in those three matches and finish them off healthy.
That's my goal". Sharapova added "Everything else I just have to take the positives out of because I feel I've committed myself to being here and done everything possible. If I can stay healthy and work my way through the matches no matter who I'm playing, in this particular situation I have to worry about myself a little bit more than who I'm playing against".
