Azarenka has no staying power and will be put back to the ordinary player she is.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

I see her possibly lowest at 4. I really don't see the top 4 dropping out anytime soon.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

Based on her performances in the first three rounds, Azarenka is definitely far from her 2012 level. She'll probably be surpassed by Serena, Maria and Aga before long.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

No way she's going to fall badly. Just look at the lower echelons of the Top 10...Azarenka is still miles ahead of them.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

I was surprised how poorly Wozniacki handled dropping from #1.
Ivanovic, Jankovic, Wozniacki all took big falls. Safina had back problems, so we'll never know how she would have handled it.

I think it will be a test of her mental toughness, if she's not #1 and not holding a major.
A lot can go wrong after early success. The true greats keep cycling back to the top. Vika might be a great. Lets give her time. Hasnt lost #1 yet, or dropped at all so far.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

LOL, Jankovic & Wozniacki took big falls because they were never that good to begin with.

They had to play 100 tournaments/year to keep the n.1 ranking and they burned out pretty quickly

Jankovic was a good player late 2006-2008. If she was that good the last 2 years, I think she would be right near the top. I would like to see 2008 Jankovic in the last 3 FO's. I think she would have been a strong contender
But its a mental game, and probably easier to get wins and move up the rankings than stay there.
Wozniacki is still 22, 3 years older than Stephens. Vika is young too. Its how they handle the mental part.

Of course, even if Serena loses in SF she is still gonna be ahead of Vika ( wether Vika wins the tournament or not)

Serena won't be N1 if she loses in the semis though and that Maria wins the title.

Don't think so. She will remain under the top three and even win a GS this year.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

Is there any player that has no "the fall cometh" thread?

Cuz I wanna open one myself (since opening such threads seems to have no relation facts on the ground)

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

Don't judge this based on one tough match. It is very likely she will definitely not be as strong as she was last season, but I don't think she will become fall cometh, at least not during this season. She will remain in top 5, maybe will drop out from top 3 but that's that.
