Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

Mats Wilander is making out Vika may have taken away Sloane's only chance at a grand slam lol. One thing that seems to be lost in this. If you are good enough for the top you shouldn't be affected by your opponent take a break. Somehow a MTO at 6-1, 5-4* has turned into the turning point in the match for some journalists, like Stephens was controlling the match.

And tbh Stephens said she wasn't affected, and it's not like there was a noticeable collapse in her game in the final game, it's not like she spewed 4 quick errors. The game followed the pattern of about the last 4 games. At the end of the day Sloane held twice in nine attempts, the break was to be expected really (certainly a lot of non-Vika fans were expecting it before she even took the MTO).
