Were you guys satisfied by Sharapova and Azarenka this year?

It's been a long time since the World N1 and N2 have performed this well an entire year but Maria and Vika have reached each 8 finals.

Maria WON : Stuttgart, Rome and French Open
FINALS of OZ, IW, Miami and OG.

Vika WON : Sydney, OZ, Doha and IW.
FINALS of Stuttgart, Madrid, US Open

An amazing consistency and an amazing rivalry as well with Vika having the edge and leading 2-1 in finals and 3-1 overall but she is the world N1 and the supposed better player this year especially on HC so it's kinda expected.

If one of them also makes the final at the YEC, they will have the most finals in a season of anyone since Henin in 2007

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

I have been very pleased with Maria this year, especially her results off clay considering she's been far from her best a lot of the time. Just hope she can capitalise on this season and continue to improve because there's still A LOT of room.

I also respect Vika's season, she's done her job well.

Yuryevna,
Always

Yes, both of them have performed fantastically well. Especially Maria, given her somewhat limited game and talent. Exceeded all expectations.

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

Even despite Serena's dominance, I don't think it overshadows the seasons of Azarenka and Sharapova. There is now at least some stability at the top which is pleasing to see.

Especially looking forward to seeing Azarenka get better next year.

Sharapova's like Rihanna...no one quite knows why she's successful but she is.

On a serious note, what about Aga, she may not have won a slam but her results prove she is perfectly ranked right now. Her game gets a lot of criticism but she has backed it up on court and I think rounds out the top quite nicely. Hopefully she will improve next year and get that maiden slam and the #1 ranking.

Stupid poll. Serena's wins this year overshadow Maria/Vika but I think their seasons are still more than satisfying. I think we finally have something everyone here has bitched about since '08 (having order at the top of tennis). Hopefully Petra and shit get on board next year and we can start having some premier rivalries, something we also haven't had in ages.

Perhaps in the 0.001% chance that Azarenka, Sharapova and Serena will all simultaneously drop dead at one of the slams, then yes, that's a slight possibility.

She won a set in a Grand Slam final and she was very close on several occasions to taking the #1 spot and that was all while Aza, Shara and Willi were still living and breathing. So I think with a little improvement she'll be able to do it!
