Where does Azarenka go from here?
Young, got the slam, got the #1 ranking, the basics are out of the way. In other words, she's Ana Ivanovic.
The distance between Azarenka and the only player better than her seems vast.
The distance between Azarenka and the next best player after her seems vast. (At least not on clay.)
What does she do now?
Perfect her style, do what she does even better, and wait for Serena to age out?
Start working on approach shots and getting to net?
Improve her serve?
Work on her clay court game?
When you're a defending slam champ, and the #1 ranked player in the world, the fact that one 30 year old player is better than you isn't cause for panic. But if you aren't getting better, you're getting worse.
What's an Azarenka to do?
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.
