Azarenka's behavior is appalling

I thought over the off-season she might have learnt to tone it down a bit, but if anything she's got worse. Shocking behavior from her today.

BOTH players had what looked to be some very dubious decisions but she constantly had a sook about each and every one of them. Some were clearly in but she still had a sook, some she had a right to complain about but by constantly complaining it doesn’t reflect well on her. She all but implied that the umpire was cheating; she dropped the f bomb which should have got her a warning, she clearly said 'f you people' in relation to the crowd getting on her case for booting a ball away.

Not to mention she’s a complete hypocrite. She complained to the umpire because Gajdosova was ‘taking too much time’ between points. She’s normally pretty quick, just on a few ocassions she somewhat slowed it down. But what I find funny is that Azarenka is the one always wandering to the back of the court, always holding up her racquet to make her opponent wait. Hypocrite of the highest order.

I can just imagine her as a junior, she would have belittled her opponents with all the line calls.

Re: Azarenka's behavior is appalling

I'd rather players show emotion and their true selves on court, however, taking it out on the crowd...well, it may work against her in the later rounds, especially if it were a french crowd

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

I'd love Poutchek and Azarenka to play doubles at FedCup one day.

Re: Azarenka's behavior is appalling

Believe me, anything she's done is nothing comparing to how her compatriot Poutchek behaves. But at least she has an interesting game, which Tatiana lacks.

Re: Azarenka's behavior is appalling

From what I have seen, her behaviour seems to differ from match to match. Sometimes she is very sulky and complains about almost every line call and even moans to her self for missing first serves. Other days she can be completely positive and show a good attitude. I guess today, playing against an oppenent she should have been sweeping aside easily, in front of a crowd that is firmly against her, it all got to her. That is understandable, she is only 19 let us not forget.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Azarenka's behavior is appalling

I've only seen a couple of her matches but I agree, a pompous bitch. She makes for good entertainment but I struggle to see why people support players of this caliber.

Re: Azarenka's behavior is appalling

Yea i sore her complaining to the umpire about him favouring Gajdosova because she is Australian and so is the umpire... she was a little cry baby out there, but yea she is 19... so hopefully she does mature a bit.

Re: Azarenka's behavior is appalling

Funny thing about Azarenka's comment is; the crowd really didn't seem to know about Jarka, her ties to Australia, or her relationship with Sam Groth. When the girls stepped onto court, Gajdosova was introduced as a Slovakian. She got less of an applause than Azarenka initially.

By the end of the match though, the entire crowd were against Azarenka and with good reason.

Poutchbitch

OMG. Best moment of 2008. Sromova vs. Poutchek at Wimbledon. Both totally looked like they did not want to win, and Poutchek looked almost apologetic to Sromova when she did.

I can't imagine it.

But Sromova is really amazing off the court.
