Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

-Stay healthy and fit
-Win at least 5 tournaments
-Stay claygoat (winning Rome, RG would be perfect)
-Win at least one slam
-SF at all 4 slams
-positive h2h against Vika.
-Stay in top 3
-Improve serve

This are just some of my wishes. I know she is capable of doing all that I wrote.

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

I want her to win a grand slam - that is all 4 slams in one year - That would make her even better than Serena Williams

Winning a slam makes a season a success, I'd prefer AO but any will do.. defending RG would be great.
Win a HC title, Miami maybe and the most bold of all: win a match against Serena

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

Wasn't here at the end of last season or the beginning of this one..


But for the remainder of 2013, I would love:

Win a Grand Slam (Just USO left) or a win against Serena, or both in the same tournament of course

Lets go for the 2013 US Open

The YEC would be nice too

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

1. start beating Serena. not all the time, but at least every other match, before Serena becomes really old or washed up and any victories over her become "doesn't count"
2. win Miami, for obvious reasons
3. win a major in an odd number year. there's still time left in 2013.
