Re: Were you guys satisfied by Sharapova and Azarenka this year?

I'm satisfied that there is actually a rivalry between them, I like both of them but not as much as I like Serena. So i don't worry when I watch their matches against each other.

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.

She was 14th and reached the top 10 by winning the tournament.

Re: Were you guys satisfied by Sharapova and Azarenka this year?

I am very satisfied with Maria's year. Its the best year she's had on tour. Not only managed to win a slam, but the slam to complete her career slam with.

As for Vika, I am surprised by her year. Never thought she would win as much as she did. I always thought she was a second tier player.

DEAD at the fact that Kerber needed 3 sets to beat Niculescu and Wickmayer but beat Maria in straights

Azarenka and Sharapova both had very satisfactory AND Serena overshadowed them.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Her Copenhagen run was even more hilarious. She lost sets to Keothavong, and Foretz-Gacon.
