Re: Beijing F: Azarenka def. Sharapova 6-3, 6-1
Sorry to burst your bubble, you're on a roll of pretty good posts but there's no way she would, nor would any professional athlete at that level, go into a slam with that mentality. They want to win it, they think and believe they can. She wouldn't say to herself right well I have a chance, need a lucky draw, only 2 players can beat me. No way
Well maybe I phrased that wrong. Let´s say from a fans perspective that is a good place to be in, although I think there is a sense of realism to professional athletes that they obviously would never transport to the outside. You especially would have to be an advocate of the "psychological factor". Afterall it is never anything Azarenka does, it is always Maria self-doubting and falling apart.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 24 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 24 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)
