I for one am struggling with tennis withdrawal. I just CAN'T WAIT for the new season. I think it'll just be even better than last year for some reason. There's so much at stake right now and especially between the big 3, they must all be uber motivated to face each other off and off-season work will definitely show that.
Regarding Brisbane, I don't think Serena will show up at all. So a Povarenka final to start the year off is all I could ask for
