She probably saw (and we have seen) how ball boys were bullied all the time on court
Or she just meant Azarenka is a bully on court. Fits with the H2H.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

so? because of this she isn't free to express her ideas towards them and their attitude?

people are clearly over-reacting here IMO

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

So the thread starter can use bully instead?
Clearly you do not speak Italian.

the experts....

Prepotente is exactly the same in both, italian and spanish and it means just that, arrogant, not bully.

Vinci just became one of my favourites.

Please change the thread title.
Thanks. I was just going to ask if there were any native Italians willing to do a correct translation It was obvious that the OP was going for the troll aspect.

I don't speak Italian, but I can google a dictionary that gives a definition of a bully. I think we can all be clear that Vinci is not using this as an adjective from what I read with prepotente.

http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dic...ish/prepotente

In any case I have already edited my sig to include all translations

La bielorussa Viktoria Azarenka, prepotente

From what I can figure out - from the very link you gave - this means "she is overbearing", "she is patronizing" or "she is arrogant"

La bielorussa Viktoria Azarenka, un prepotente would mean "she is a bully"

Ouch!! She's the last person I expected this from Roberta's grown long horns since posting that top 10 win over Petra, now she's tryna lock those same horns with the top 3 in anticipation of the clay court season. What a brazen statement, she's so gonna pay for this shit

Yep Azarenka is the arrogant and your handshakes are not arrogant AT ALL.

If that's the case I would go with what the Italian journalist wrote until Vinci makes a claim to deny.

Da Vinci has officially beaten Aga the Oracle with this article by asking troubles from the top 3

Ooooh boy!! (If true)
This is NOT gonna be good.

And "Choose" what, I wonder?

Even so, I wonder which of the top three will behead her first?
