It's still a continuation of last summer. She remains far superior to everybody else and nobody is in her zip code. Her health is going to dictate what happens in every tournament she enters in 2013.(Of course, players need to take advantage of tourneys she doesn't play) If she's close to 100%, she's going to win all the big ones. If she's hampered by something, the door opens slightly for Maria, Vika, Na, Petra, Agi, and maybe a few others to vulture whatever titles they can. And Azarenka already did just that in Melbourne and Qatar. Maria did that at IW. Pounce when you can.
so true, but it's not like Serena is playing like GOAT , she hasn't been playing like GOAT since Olympics with her only GOAT match at YEC Final , all the rest was far from high quality tennis , definitely below Serena's capacities ... But current top 10 of WTA are complete mugs , just a bunch of "Ferrers" and Masha who might have had chances is unlucky to be the one who motivates Serena to return to GOAT mode for the match against her.
If we have Serena-Maria match in Miami, Serena will serve 10 aces , and will have 25W- 14UE stats
