It really depends on the draw and whether she has a waist or not.

No. Azarenka is a more talented player than Sharapova who will win more majors and surpass Sharapova.

Re: Do you guys think Maria will ever defend a major like Victoria just did?

But, tbh, i really don't care if she defends one or not. Example, i don't care if she'd win FO 2012 and 2014 or 2012 and 2013...it simply doesn't matter.
I don't want to say that she WILL win FO, it was just an example.

We'll see in one more slam later but I think no.

She doesn't have to and I don't think she cares as long as she wins them.

Why do you care? Thank you for keeping Maria relevant even if a Slam final has just finished and there are many other things to talk about!

Maybe. Depends on the draw.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Re: Do you guys think Maria will ever defend a major like Victoria just did?

If she gets the same kind of draw like she did last year then it's a given. I'm not saying she can't defend without a super easy draw but it sure helps.

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.

Azarenka has a shot at two out of 4 titles. Maria, neither her fans are worried about Azarenka at all.
