Maybe Vika´s old doubles partner Makiri will beat big bad Masha in semifinal. That would be at least a little consolation after today´s sad news. Then Vika would remain at No.2 spot which is a valuable thing for the forthcoming draws.
I am a bit worried if she has enough time to recover to play in Miami.
