Vika Made Front Page Sunday Times!

I can't remember the last time a non-Wimbledon slam women's champ made the news here in the UK. The Roland Garros champs are lucky to be even mentioned in the back pages!

Yet here is Vika, photo and headline 'Victor Victoria' - those old enough will recognise the pun on an old Julie Andrews movie musical! - slap bang on the front page of the main paper, not even just the sports section!

Congratulations to Vika on finally raising the profile of women's tennis. She could be a real asset No 1 like the big stars of before!
