Ok, so I've read back your posts (sorry for the wild reaction first off
Masha 2012 - pulled out because of ankle injury - reached the final of Australian Open
She's already stated that she couldn't hit overhead shots because of her collarbone inflammation a week before, so Masha being the perfectionist she is, would not want to enter a tournament just for the sake of it and fuck her chances at slams. Did you not see her press conference like yesterday at Brisbane? She said her main goal was the SLAMS, idk of course its our fave and ofc we'd be worried about her, but in all seriousness I think this was a wise decision. If anything, when she stated she was going to play Brisbane in the first place I was quite surprised!
She's going to be fine for the AO so lets keep that optimistic train rolling
