Re: how would you like maria to end 2013???
I think she should return back in Auckland, play a MM before AO. Nadal with his MM serias in Latin America had a good strategy and it worked. I absolutely hate an idea that she may have her first match after a break at a Slam
as for YEC, I'm almsot sure it will be again dull competition between Serena and Azarenka with Masha's announcement of skipping it 1 day before the start of competition
