I kind of suspect her and Connors' strategy is just to practise up until the US Open and then "surprise" the other players with whatever new wrinkles she has to her game. But going in with no match-play would be so risky...
do you really believe a completely healthy Maria would lose a slam match to friggin De Brito no matter the court conditions? Of course she was injured during that match - she was barely moving to balls after she took that MTO. It's obvious that healthy Maria wouldn't be skipping Premier events one after another just before a slam - she's not that stupid
