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

Angie would be a perfect Mutley, but maybe too perfect. Vika and her fans have pretty thick skins, but I think Angie's feelings would be more easily hurt. I would feel sorry for her.

Maybe you should ask Max if he'd mind you borrowing his Wicky as Vika's sidekick

I cannot confirm or deny whether Wicky will or will not be appearing in TftLR or indeed whether she will or will not be behaving badly should she make such an appearance [/DOUBLESPEAK]

She's definitely top of my list of players that need to be included but I don't have a script ready yet. I could probably shoehorn her into a cartoon in a supporting role but it wouldn't be right. When, not if, when, Venus appears she'll be the star. That much I can promise.

Perhaps I did this cartoon all wrong. Maybe it's Serena who needs to hire this guy to hypnotize her into believing Cornet is Sharapova

We all should to blame bobito for all this mess

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

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.
