Can believe most of them picked Vika's fat @ss.

And the fool that picked Ana for the DH win.

Re: Australian Open 2016: ESPN Predictions

So much pressure surrounding Vika. She is in pretty good form but I have a feeling she'll go deep but fall at QF or SF. She could win it all though.

Re: Australian Open 2016: ESPN Predictions

Surprised at how many people picked Vika. I think it's more of a hopeful choice, than a realistic one. She will lose to Halep in the SF.

Congratulations on winning your 21st Grand Slam Serena!

All the pressure is on Serena. Vika is under no more pressure than Halep, Radwanska or anyone else with a chance

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Australian Open 2016: ESPN Predictions

What the hell with all of them picking Vika after she had one great tourney. Would love to see her go deep/win, but not sure if she has the stamina back for that already.

+1. Also doubts about Serena and Maria's fitness (injury-wise) and doubts about Halep's GS fortitude. Think Vika is the best bet.

Oh God I know. I've been a fan for years but the hype is unreal. She's literally beaten 2 relevant players in the past year - her pigeon Angie and Ludmilla - but we all know that Ludmilla is relevant 3 weeks a year and that was not one of them. I'm happy she's playing well but hope it doesn't get to her head.

you actually do know though that it is a mere folly in the graphics as his picks are just moved by on spot?

Azarenka wil not win it, she did actually win Brisbaine after Cinci 2013 as her only first next won tournament afterwards: that bad is she - thats actually a big fat tragedy (as her body right now). When I only remember, how badly she was demolished by Lucie in Doha who was 0:6 against her before that. Questionable fitness of a lady almost looking like my mum is probably the main reason, why she will fail again. Besides that, beating Kerber in a final is a must, nothing else.

All those pseudo-experts who think, she is the real deal, will be soooooo much disappointed seeing her cry again (as so many times before).

Unfortunatelly, as its the rule in the last 2 years, Azarenka is a piece of history and this AO will change nothing on it.

Serena is a given. It seems as if her win at Brisbane got everyone's attention suddenly and she's hyped once again at her best major.
