How Long Before Azarenka Folds Under Pressure?

I have a feeling that the pressure maybe haven't gotten to her yet. The more she keeps up this wining streak, the more pressure will build upon her. As she keeps on winning, people will expect more and more of her and eventually I think she'll fold. Especially since she's not the strongest girl on tour mentally. I mean looking at her last 5 tournaments it's been quite impressive, her only loss was a close 3 setter to Kvitova at the YEC. How long can she keep this up before her fragile body or brain give out?

Luxembourg - W
YEC - F
Sydney - W
AO - W
Doha - F/W?

She'll carry on doing well until the end of miami, and the clay courts will allow for different tactics against and that is when her dominance will be over. At least I hope so

Aga already did that for her.

She should act as as true number one and stop her silly "celebration" everytime she destroys a mediocre journeywoman.

She will definitely be feeling it by the Time the French starts.. unless her form takes a nosedive before that time.

Re: How Long Before Azarenka Folds Under Pressure?

I actually don't think she will. She'll dip off a bit during the clay season but nothing too major, like VIP

Re: How Long Before Azarenka Folds Under Pressure?

I really think she's feeling very confident but has yet to run into anyone that will give her a hard time. She's the hottest player at the moment. Let's see until another big tourney where there will be better competition for her.

IMO, not much longer. We'll see how she does in IW. Miami is where the real competition will be.

Re: How Long Before Azarenka Folds Under Pressure?

If you mean to suggest that Vika is too physically fragile to keep winning every tournament, then fine.

But if you think the streak is going to get to her mentally, I doubt it.

Re: How Long Before Azarenka Folds Under Pressure?

I don't really expect a mental meltdown, but the laws of TF dictate that the whole purpose of praising her into the heavens as some kind of invincible wonderwoman is so that it is then so much more satifying to lay the boot in when it turns out she's only human after all.

I am a bit more concerned about how she's managing her schedule. I don't think she has yet adjusted to the fact that she's winning a much higher proportion of matches than she used to. If she doesn't want her body to break down she should cut back on the number of tournaments she's playing. It would make sense for her to pull out of Dubai now, but it would have made even more sense, and been fairer to the fans and the tournament organisers, for her never to have entered it.
