You don't understand the hysteria when she's won 1 match in nearly 3 months and has played two of her worst matches in years back to back?
This forum often overreacts, but I don't think is an occasion where it's fair to say that.
The main thing is, Maria relies on having her focus at 100% for her to do well. Therefore, even IF she started hitting the ball amazingly in practice over the next couple of weeks (which itself is a huge "if"), then I STILL wouldn't fancy her chances, with all this turmoil and instability behind the scenes probably meaning she wouldn't be mentally 100% at crunch time.
