Re: Clay season!
It's funny people keep going about how bad she is since start of year. I wouldn't blame them because she has not played to her seeding in any of the tournaments.
But... if you compare her results with last year's, it's not terribly far off.
Sydney - 1R (2010), 2R (2011)
Australian Open - 4R (2010), 3R (2011)
Fed Cup - 2 wins (2010), 2 losses (2011 playing much tougher opponents)
Dubai - 1R (2010), QF (2011)
Indian Wells - SF (2010), 3R (2011)
Miami - QF (2010), 4R (2011)
Defending Charleston is a tough ask but I hope she at least gets to SF/F.
