Well, from a betting standpoint, she's still one of the favorites in the eyes of bookies, ranking behind only Serena and Vika. So, technically, what Maria said was kind of accurate.
But, yeah, conventional wisdom, even amongst many diehard Maria fans, says she isn't going to be much of a threat in this tournament, given her form and severe lack of match play in recent weeks.
Maria will always believe in herself even when others don't, though, so her confidence isn't surprising.
