Sharapova Throws Football In Preparation For Bammer

Myles ValentinContributor IAugust 19, 2009

On Monday night in Toronto Maria Sharapova won her opening round Rogers Cup match 6-3, 6-4 against 10th seed Nadia Petrova

Despite Petrova's high ranking she was a heavy underdog. Once again on Wednesday Sharapova comes in at -375 favorite against a decent Sybille Bammer.

Bammer recently defeated Serena Williams in the Western and Southern Women's Open and advanced all the way to the quarterfinals.

Its tough to say who to bet for on Wednesday as we do not know if Maria is back to her peak form.

So instead I'll just provide practice footage of her throwing a football in preparation for her big match.

Maria > Favre

You're welcome, everyone.
