As the saying goes, "one match at a time".
However, 2013 AO was weird. Maria missed Brisbane because of collarbone (shoulder related). Then she raced through AO without any resistance until she played a "2013 Wimbledon Michelle Lacher de Brito match" with Na Li.
In retrospective, Maria was bothered by her shoulder all year in 2013. We know her shoulder will never be 100% again, but let's hope at least it's better in 2014 than in 2013.
