She's doing OK. Its only one week in and it takes a rising player who has just cracked the top 20 to beat her. Its better than that because Dinara, Francesca, Nadia and Patty all reminded us that the players in the top 20 lose to lower ranked players too - underachievement is common in the top 20 and, if Martina can get to the top 20, draws will still open up for her there. We have also already got two of the very top players injured just one week into the season - which also eases her opposition and reminds us how the top players have suffered lately.
More interesting though is why she ran out of steam. If its the natural consequence of coming back and playing a lot after being away, or a one off heat reaction like her AO final loss to Jencap, fine. if its a more general problem racing around at the required intensity for long enough she may have a problem or at least something to work on. Too early to tell by far there.
