But why do I say anything can happen? Look at numerous exaples; look at the latest - Petra Kvitova! Strong in 2011, disappointing 2012...Same goes for Caro... Some players improve drastically like Vika did, others fall in form... It is a cycle... Maria has to focus on staying strong and healthy and work on the weakness of her game - *cough* serve placement *cough* and movement back and front... - because she has a fair share of points to defent through whole year!
There are a number of speculations about how Serena at 31 is running faster than Azarenka
I've seen enough biathlon, cross skiing , cycling etc and don't have any illusions about cleanliness of sports, especially when it turns to the experienced sportsmen
And it's not like i speak about doping, because there are a plenty of legal pharmaceuticals and substances
