The only place she can add some points is Madrid.
Tbf wasn't Masha ranked like 3 at the USO, making the SF and running out of steam vs Vika because of those consecutive three-setters?
I don't think ranking really matters to her (ofc being a top 5 seed is important) but there's no telling Rena would even make the SF/F - same goes for Masha. But IW is a given that she'll be ranked 2, Paris doesn't matter as she's playing Doha instead - Miami is the only worry. Other than that, if she's really proved her worth on clay than going deep in Stuttgart + Rome shouldn't be too much of a problem, plus she's entered Charleston right? Madrid QF is kind of a breather for her in terms of ranking points. But I see this year as no different from 2012, if anything being a Vika fan I'd be
knowing just how many points she has to defend. Plus, because of the Olympics, her american HC swing is practically non-existent, so she can easily make points up there, and she only made 4rnd of Wimbledon too. So she just needs to go deep until RG and then start collecting points post Wimbledon. I believe in Masha to have a great year again
