SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah, I think she was playing last year too and she pulled out and it worked for her, so maybe she thought it was another good strategy for her. I just found out, so...One thing I can say about Maria is she's a great competitor. I've never not seen her play for any reason. I hope she's okay going into Australia. She's great for the tennis.I think she probably made a wise decision for her just to get herself ready for Melbourne.
