Sad as she is such a good doubles player but her body is not able to handle the wear and tear of both. That could also explain the disappointing start to their relationship. Masha was not her normal self in Sydney or in Melbourne on the doubles court. She didnt seem to have the confidence when coming in or in her volleys.
Maybe her knee will get healthy again and she will decide to play again in the future?
If she's indeed done with doubles, I think that's quite a good decision, especially in order to save energy for singles, where she has actually chances to reach top 10. Also we all know she has chronicle knee issues...
Of course I'd like to see her play doubles too (and win) but she's not a cyborg...
