Serena has not played now for almost 2 months now, sidelined by a persistent knee injury which she seems to have had since October. I know she only plays a limited schedule but she always plays well in Miami and I think the tournament will miss her. She always brought her A Game and the draw suffers a bit. I would have loved to see her vs Kim/Justine/Masha here, though it does give others a time to shine. I'm wondering how this will affect the CC preparation, which she had a great chance to rack up points before and during RG (she only has 500 from the French to defend). So, is anybody else missing her?
