Oh my god Arantxa! loool I love you! Not because you hit Maria, but because you are so funny on a court! And look at those volleys and smashes ! Vamos!
Yes ASV looked in great form on those points. In fact that whole video was just ASV hitting winners
She looks in good shape. I really hope we do see her play some tournaments this year as she can still be a force in doubles, especially with Sveta.
It's unfortunate that Maria got hit in the face but that's doubles. If you are not used to fast reaction times at the net that comes with playing regular doubles then that is liable to happen. Also doubles in the 1990s when ASV played a lot, was different to now. All 4 players would very often be at net at the same time meaning you need fast reactions whereas now you don't always need the same quick hand-eye co-ordination because shots are coming at you from the baseline and not right in front of you.
