Without this meaning that Maria can't keep the H2H balanced and of course we can't know who will go down as the greater one eventually.
The only thing little better before surgery was her serve. Even yesterday her serve was good for the most part. 194 km/hr
serve... the thing is she doesn't like to improve anything in her game. She might have been thinking that some random scrub might take off Serena/Vika/Someother she has trouble with then she can give a beat down to them and win title. FO-2012 was a good example for that. Otherwise how can one who won a grandslam a month ago gets a beatdown she took from serena in Olympics final in front of thousands of fans that too playing for your country and being a Flag bearer. Very embarrassing. I am feeling bad for Hoggy because he said in one of the interviews that coaching Masha is most easy because she dont listen to him instead goes in her own way
