I'm sorry but in all the matches mentioned as the best or most dramatic or entertaining last year Maria was mentioned in near half and more than anyone else.
AO vs Petra
some mentioned Miami vs Woz
Stuttgart vs Sam (best match of year IMO)
Rome Final with Li
OG vs Bine was great for large parts too
All of her R4, QF and SF @ USO were entertaining.
YEC vs Aga as well.
I know what you said was about Finals, but only 4 of her Finals last year were absolute shit IMO, AO, IW, OG, Beijing. The rest weren't any worse than a typical WTA Final.
