It's not like your previous cartoons had much in the way of a script anyway.

It's a good job she didn't read the French Open episode in that case.

Sometimes it's the details that can really give a player the upper hand over her opponent.

Threatening to switch to Babolat is a perfect example of Vika's ability to play mind games. First of all, she throws her opponent completely off-guard with her sudden willingness to speak well for a rival company. Secondly, she shows that she's willing to put her tennis aspirations ahead of her marketing potential. This is a great tactic for gaining a psychological advantage and a prime example of what it can take to become a mentally strong professional.

I think Vika's tantrums are one of the most underrated nuances of her game.
I have to say Vika's racquet smashing technique was much improved yesterday. Plenty of forward weight transfer and destroyed it with a single throw. Marat Safin himself couldn't have done much better.

Her tennis left quite a bit to be desired but that's another matter.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Episode 19, Asderaki Lays Down the Law!

Chris Evert's commentater portrayal cracks me up, my favourite is...

Carrilo: (on Azarenka) She hasn't dropped a point on serve yet. she's held to love 3 times in a row.

Evert: Kuznetsova's real problem here is she hasn't been able to take advantage of the break point opportunities she's had.

Carrilo: (gives Evert wtf look)

Ok there was enough speculation about this match last year, it's time to get it on.
