She was in the semis last year and she should have won that match against Vika, so she is capable of a deep run there this year.
But Maria does need to show a focus and hunger to improve her game and do well there. She did say the US Open was her other priority after Wimbledon, so maybe being humbled last week will ignite some determination for the hard court season.
