What do you all think would be the best strategy for Serena's 2013 Clay Court Season? Should she play the same schedule as she did this year or try something different?
Well skipping Madrid technically isn't an option, but it's not like Serena follows the scheduling rules if she doesn't want to.
But I completely agree that her main focus for the French warmup next year should be Rome. Even Stuttgart is an anomaly of clay.
