Re: American Spring 2013 - Indian Wells, Miami, Charleston
I don't understand the hype around the actual no.1, really.
Her movement is just slow, she wins only because of that powerful serve and because of her name and bad attitude on and off-court. 80% of her opponents lose the matches with her before they hit the first ball. Sorana one of them, obviously, as in last years's Stanfords semifinal she only took 3 games from SW.
That's how she manages to reach the high stages of tournaments. First rounds byes, then a couple of scared monkeys as opponents and the next thing you know she's in the final.
Even her "friend" and "protegee" Sloane said about her that she's disrespectful, and I'm pretty sure Sloane was being a lady for saying this little about that animal who is capable of threatening with death the line judges and the umpires and then lie about not doing so in front of the crowd.
Was she a good player? No doubt about that, but nowadays she's only an intimidating bully. And the days when she'll lose to whomever aren't that far away.
So yeah, maybe Sorana will lose that one IF she even gets there, but I still want to see that clash. Who knows? Sloane did it, and Sorana beat Sloane in her first match after the AO, so...
