She won at least 1 of those challengers too, Sea Island. Kournikova played too.

Maria plays IW & Miami, then she usually takes a break.
Skipping Miami and playing this is a big change.
I think she will withdraw from Charleston.
She played a lot this week.

Which is why the boobs who always write her off in the clay season really have no idea what they are talking about. SHe is a work in progress on clay, and the more she plays on it, the more dangerous she will be.

Well really with today's schedule, the top player only plays 3 or 4 events on clay per year (Berlin, Rome, RG, and maybe Charleston). Maria has been a top player for the majority of her career, and she's been unfortunate enough to be injured in some of her past clay seasons, so it's no surprise the number is so low. It's not like Maria spent years trying to break through playing lower tiers in Estoril or Prague.
