Amazing set of events during this game.
I can't believe such a vile, disliked, over-matched (when playing a legitimate opponent), PUSHING, No Serve, untalented of a player has 2 majors already.
Vika didn't deserve to win this match (though she did).
The match was in Na's hands all along, until she got hurt and made some inopportune, key UE's (even before she twisted her ankle 2X and banged her head on the ground, causing 2 medical TO, as well as the Fireworks display, possibly stiffening her ankle), where she could have taken charge and won the 2nd or third set. Na had her chances then setbacks.
Neither player played or served great. However, Vika did nothing. She had about 17 winners and 20+ UE's? I'm sure somebody will provide the proper stats, if they haven't already. Na had 40+ winners, with unfortunately 50+ errors. But I think her percentage of UE to W was still lower than Azarenaka's.
It didn't feel like Azarenka really won this match. That's my problem. I really didn't. As a viewer it just felt, "what else could go wrong with Na, to give this match to Azarenka".
Na did not play great during the third set (ankle or no ankle). However, she played better through out the match than Azarenka, who appeared to be a bystander most of the time in my opinion, and ended up a survivor. She was really exposed again, playing a proper attacking player during a major semi or final (sans Sharapova last Aussie Open).
Nonetheless, Vika is the champion. However, she did not play Championship tennis; either during her previous game or in today's game, where she was just SURVIVED for the victory--it seems.
Yeah, she won two majors. It goes on her record for sure. Fabulous and congrats to her. But color me un-impressed!! She's still a pusher and Wozniaki 2.0 at heart.
