She has a good coach... if he can get her head together in this off season and early next year, then maybe. But her head is the only thing stopping her.

Re: Now Think Again.Will Azarenka Win A Slam?

1975 US Open semi.

Guillermo Vilas leads Manuel Orantes 6-4, 6-1, 2-6, 5-0, 40-0 in the fourth set. Triple match point while bageling the guy. Only Orantes comes back and wins the match 4-6, 1-6, 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. In your book, that makes Vilas a 'mental midget' right? But he went on to win four slams singles titles, competing against Connors and Borg and McEnroe.


One match, however dramatic, is never predictive.

Such a headcase. Needs to get that together if she has any chance.

Re: Now Think Again.Will Azarenka Win A Slam?

No... The only thing she she's proved so far is that she can play one incredible first set. (AO vs. Serena, RG vs. Dinara, YEC vs. Caro) and then totally collapse.

Yeah that's true she really needs to learn how to control a match and her level of play from start to end and stop believing that a match is only one set and a half.

She'll slam cuz Kuz is not a mentally very tough player and foretime she's fought herself to 2 GS. But Vika will correct that I guess because she's allways willing to get better !

Re: Now Think Again.Will Azarenka Win A Slam?

She will win a Slam when no one expects her to especially after her 2 meltdowns in Doha this week(understand Caroline but no excuse for Agnieszka as she lead 6-2,4-0 and served for the match twice in set 2 at 5-2 and 5-4)

Re: Now Think Again.Will Azarenka Win A Slam?

I think she will her serve definitely needs beefing up a bit to help her close out these sort of matches she's been losing easier and she needs to stop taking her foot off the pedal when she's in control of a match and hoping her opponents will hand it to her. The forehand needs a bit of work doing to it too as it often drops far too short or can produce a fair few errors. She also needs to control her temper and use it to fire herself up, not implode. If she improves these though she'l definitely be a slam contender in the future , she is only 20 afterall.
