It didn't help that her collarbone injury kept her out of Brisbane.

I agree with this. I think if everything had gone smoothly and she had played Brisbane the AO would have been much different for her (or if she had some more challenging opponents before the SF )

Anyway a loss before SF here would be a disaster

But, as it stands now, I'll be Mr. Negativity again and say I don't think Maria will win another major, based on what I've seen. The way she's flopped time and time again against Serena, Vika, and Li Na points a dire picture about her chances. And there's still Petra, who is showing signs of improving again. If Maria had at least shown to be just reasonably competetive against those players in slams, I'd have more hope. But her continually getting destroyed by them leaves me with only doubt.

Maria could always hope for another dream draw like last year's French. Then she could squeeze out another major.

Re: INDIAN WELLS 2013- Hunterpova seeks revenge!

I think she has the talent to win 4 more slams before retirement, but 1-2 is definitely more realistic. I really hope she ends up winning another slam soon! She deserves it and I want her to!

Re: INDIAN WELLS 2013- Hunterpova seeks revenge!

I don't know I'd give her 50% chance to win a slam this year if someone takes Serena out I like the way she's playing there's definitely room for improvement but I'm positive because I do see improvements in her game constantly even though we are so critical all the time. One example is her serve, she's improved tremendously in that department and she has only a few matches under her belt so I think it's too soon to judge. I just think she was really unlucky with the collarbone injury and that's why she's had kind of a slow start to the year and lost to Li...about the Serena loss I mean did anyone expect her to win (everybody got so depressed about it afterwards only because Vika won the next day) but it's a different match up and a different mind set Vika was hyped to beat Serena ever since the USO Final,while Maria hasn't had a three setter against Serena since 2008

I know that Maria hasn't beaten Serena in a while but the same can't be said about either Vika or Li or Petra.

If healthy, Maria's career is ahead of her not behind her because she has continued to imporve. Remember, a short two years ago this time Maria had just lost to Petkovic at AO and Razzano at Fed Cup.

The question is whether she'll stay healthy and how much longer will she play.

It's not easy to predict if and how many more slams she could win in the future.. But I don't think it's a thing you can be sure of, or rule out completely... There's so many variables, who knows. What I know is that I'll be happy whatever she wins because I'll root for her in every match I would be happy anyway if she ends up even with only 1 more slam

Sorry, I guess that's the one area where we're not compatible.

But we'll always have Maria and the opportunity to bring smiles to others' faces with our incomparable knowledge on the ins and outs of her game.

Being the voices of reason can be a tough burden to bear.

If you have such little faith then why bother being her fan?
