Well said! They are bullies, its their playbook, almost worked, watch the first set. Crowd even bood on her when she walked in she ignored it with Ipad listening, she was bullied on all fronts and overcame at the end and won, so nice to see.

Is Australia the 51 state? Did you even see the bad press she got in Aussie papers? Unless the Aussie press is controlled by the U.S. gov!

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

And it's funny how one minute we have a slamless #1 and the next we have a #1 who got that ranking PRECISELY by winning slams and you people still aren't happy

This is literally the only thing that needs to be said. Good thing because he would have jumped onto Na's

Exactly. The useless McEnroe and Mary Zero Slams Fernandez can eat shit. About the only redeeming quality the useless McEnroe has is his first name.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria

Well, at least, she is able to defend a slam title, unlike other "experienced" multi slam winners

Kudos. Li

Mainly devoid of high quality tennis, but that was quite the captivating final I must say, respect to Azarenka for keeping her composure and overcoming a tricky atmosphere to play in. She really knuckled down towards the end of the match and was ultimately a worthy winner.

Fabulous effort from Li, of course. She's been so good for this tournament in the second week and it's a shame she just couldn't quite elevate her game to the required standard today. Here's hoping she'll build on this and become a little more consistent through the season, rather than slipping back into 'a good performance every now and then' mode.

Career Grand Slam.

The reaction to Azarenka's antics against Stephens was global, not just US press
