As you say, when she played Sydney she'd usually just want a couple of matches to get her feet wet and then tank against an irrelevant like Dementieva. But she's not going to want to tank to Maria or Vika or anyone else she knows can actually beat her at a Slam (maybe Petra too?), so she's not going to tank to them and give them a confidence boost -- so she'll either tank in the early rounds of Brisbane or go all-out for a win if she plays one of those, imo.

And yes, even though I've been willing the offseason to end, I really CAN'T believe the new season is just a week away First Brisbane matches will be taking place literally this time next week, right?
