I honestly don't think she's tanking here, although you never know with her first clay tournament. She's playing here cus Madrid sucks and she sucks even bigger at it, whereas a lot of players have stated the courts in Stuttgart play identical to RG.
I don't want to waste my time over worrying about Maria during my exam period
BUT i'll be back for French Open, which is the most important!!!
I know the feeling cus I'll have to do the same, I'll be able to watch Rome fully but by Madrid and Rome I'll probably still watch most of the matches (I'll know for sure when the time comes) but won't be able to spend hours on TF. I've a two week exam break during RG so will be able to watch all them and come on here with plenty of time to study
