If that wouldn't give her a lot of confidence, nothing will. A good start of the season could set the trend for the rest of her year. She did well in her last few events in 2012 (at least compared to what came before) and if she does well in Brisbane - let alone if she beats Azarenka or at least makes it a competitive match she may feel that she's back in business. If her adorable ass gets a whipping in the first or second round it's a bad omen for what's to come later on.
