Re: Official Australian Open 2014: New Season, New Coach, 'New Shoulder' and New Slam
A big no. It would result in her being fatigued for her singles. Maria is not Serena. Remember in USO 2012, Maria just played 2 3-setters before, and she looked a little tired in her semi against Vika already. Well and I'm sure if she had got through that match, she would have got humiliated by Serena in the final cause she got nothing left in the tank, just like her QF against Domi in RG 09.
That's why getting through many 3-setters is already tough for Maria, let alone playing doubles.
