Pathetic behavior from the audience, even the German Eurosport commentator is pissed.

Thank you Vika!!!! Sloane you will be a big girl when you beat top players back to back and fully healthy.

Not big applause for Azarenka. I think some are thinking gamesmanship. Why didn't Sloane's coach encourage her to get up and move around?

Azarenka ruined her reputation with the US media.

Well, understandable nerves from Sloane but a great run to her first GS SF

You could hear a pin drop. Her PR needs to go on overtime.

Vika always plays well with injury, it is known. This would make her destruction of Na in the final akin to a phoenix rising from the ashes! Win it all Vika

Supporting useless players before it was cool.

Sloane just wasn't there or ready mentally. I think she would have liked a day to rest, as she was sloppy and missed numerous chances. Hopefully Sloane will use this as a learning experience for the future. It's hard to tell how well Azarenka was playing before the injury happened, as she was being solid and Stephens couldn't do much. I think Li is the favorite in the final for sure.
