Re: Were you guys satisfied by Sharapova and Azarenka this year?
I think it's impossible to not be satisfied with the year Vika has had. At the beginning of the year, everybody was expecting Kvitova to become the new #1, nobody even talked about Vika.
She won her first slam, there was zero post-slam slump, quite the contrary as she went on an impressive streak after winning her first slam - when's the last time we saw that from a first-time slam winner?
The closest thing to a drop off period she had all year was her mediocre RG but if that's the worst you`ve done all year you know it has been a stellar season. Depending on what happens tomorrow and at the YEC, she can end the year with up to 7 titles, the YE#1 and a comfortable lead in the ranking - There's just nothing bad that can be said about her season, she has exceeded all expectations.
