Re: Where does Azarenka go from here?
What are you talking about? in supposedly 2011 GOAT year by Petra she has reached in slams other than Wimby QF at AO, 4r RG, 1r USO and in this 'bad' year she reached SF at AO, SF at RG, QF at OG, 4r USO and even win two premier titles on NA HC and reached SF in another snatching USO series where she never was good just because Rena's great run, Sharpies CGS and Vika's 1st slam win overshadows her overall improvement you can't said this was bad year just because she didn't win a slam in back to back years
I understand your reaction, but 'less-than-stellar' doesn't mean bad. She's #5 in the world, she obviously hasn't sucked. But she showed no sign in any of the slams this year of winning. She showed no threat of becoming the top player on the tour, or even close to it. Even the Radwanska haters (and they are legion) don;t argue Kvitova should be ranked ahead of her.
This was a disappointing year from Kvitova.
But I will offer you this. I can think of a similarly disappointing year following a first slam win. Serena Williams 2000. How'd that work out?

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.
