This thread is a lot quieter than I expected.
No point thinking of Serena before the Final should both get there. Despite Maria showing great poise to not let Serena's loss blind her vision last year, Maria has shown a lot of times, particularly the past two AOs, that she can still mess up the chance if it arrives.
Even if they meet in the final, Serena has still been vulnerable in all her major finals since she came back, it almost happened in Miami, maybe the clay court can help Maria go that little bit further.
However, there's still 6 important matches to be played before that can even be thought of. Looking forward to the draw.
