Time will tell but I am bit worried about

these last couple of years are fundamental for here, Serena is not young anymore and if she doesnt face Maria her chances to be always the first will start decrease...this is the moment to take advantage of this, before she will be the old one, and she is "already" 26
Masha's problems are similar to those after her surgery - Same serve problems - that is problems with her toss and bad timing which resulted in lots of DFs which in it's turn had consequences for her whole game - Remember that it took her more than a year to regain a stable and reliable serve and when she finally had come that far her game also improved to her former pre-injury level if not even better

Now all we have to do is to have patience and hope that she'll find her serve faster this time - Whining about her serve and game and blaming her coach(es) probably is uncalled for - Thinking that her second shoulder injury should pass by unnoticed and without effecting her game isn't very clever either - Masha needs to find her serve in her own time - It's a matter of the toss and the timing - Once she's comfortable with her serve again - her game will improve automatically to it's former glory
