Re: Vika Crying: Not Because She Won, But She Felt Bullied

So apparently Azarenka was now "bullied"?

Just like in the past when she bullied umpires, linespeople and ballkids?

Lol at playing the victim when it fits the agenda.

Next thread please.

Oh Boo Hoo. This is pro sport, and this was entirely of her own making. More importantly she just won a Slam, why should she be crying over this?

It was a battle between Light and Darkness. Thank you Australian crowd for channelling thine inner Light and recognizing the true face of the Cheating Shaitan.

Honestly, much as I respect Vika, anyone suggesting she's some kind of victim in all this beggars belief.

Re: Vika Crying: Not Because She Won, But She Felt Bullied

Did the crowd boo her in the final? I haven't watched the whole match yet.

As for the timing of the MTO, it's not the first or the last time a MTO is called at a crucial moment, and yet no MTO never was followed by such a backlash. The whole thing was emphasized by American media and American pseudo-journalists on twitter. A lot of people who found it easy to trash a 23 yo girl for something allowed by the rules while none of them talked about the dubious sportmanship of Federer who behaved like a total jerk the next day. Doubles standards much ? Oh yeah, Federer was not facing America's next Superstar.
You're right. Taking that time out due to nerves and choking was within the rules, but don't blame the American media for what ensued because that is 100% on Vika and her team. Of course, there was going to be backlash because most people do consider what she did "cheating within the rules". Nevertheless, it is allowed and at least she was being honest. So why did her story change by the time she got to the press conference?


After meeting with her team for over an hour, Vika told the press that she had a rib injury blah, blah, blah...which completely contradicted what she had said about choking in numerous live interviews. Taking the time out due to choking IS within the rules, so why didn't she continue to say that???? Because her team knew that, despite being allowed the TO, Vika had fucked up by admitting that she used it that reason.

Look, Vika won the title and clearly these facts are irrelevant to you. You're a Vika fan who chooses to blame others for her actions and believe what you want to believe. But honesty is the best policy. Had Vika not changed her story, the press/public wouldn't have been nearly as hard on her. However, the attempt to spin it REALLY pissed people off and made her look shady as hell.

Re: Vika Crying: Not Because She Won, But She Felt Bullied

And yet anyone who has eyes saw the trainer beginning to manipulate her back on court before they left. So her "back story" is hardly a lie.

...and yet Vika didn't say jack shit about her back or ribs when asked about the injury TO. VIKA SAID she took it because she was choking a fact you choose to ignore and it speaks volumes.

I feel for Na so much in this match and really wanted her to win, but enough is enough.
She should've got over it, a crowd booing you doesn't matter if you're mentally tough and could block it out, which she did. Serena did so against Clijsters at IW and won regardless

Except the question on court never was "Why did you take a MTO ?". And as I already explained, Vika, in the heat of the moment probably didn't know what was happening to her and thought she was having a panic attack because she was choking. She probably still was not sure of what was happening after and had trouble explaining it. In fact, French Eurosport made an interview of her coach Sam Sumyk who explained that Vika was too involved in the match to pay attention at what was going on during her MTO and that he was the one who went to the trainer after the MTO to ask what happened and the trainer told him it was the rib and that she had to manipulate her back.

I would like to hear more about this hatred. The Fed Cup team has two Eastern European females who seem to get a lot of support. Tennis is about the only female sport which gets much attention anyway. Her behaviour is more American than Eastern European and she surrounds herself with Americans.

Re: Vika Crying: Not Because She Won, But She Felt Bullied

Cry me a river. Seriously, if she thinks anything other than just sucking it up and winning the title (which she did) is going to do her any good, she can stamp her own ticket to popularity hell. Bullied? Her on-court behavior is pretty dire, harrying/bullying poor ballkids and umpires, frequently looking like someone pissed in her last bowl of cereal 5 days running (even despite the 'maturity' she has apparently developed), not to mention crowd-displeasing antics like imitating a siren on steroids.

She ought to know that her tactics in the SF were seen as shady and trying her hardest to spin a convincing story and pretending to be a victim will only come off as admittance of guilt.
