Given Maria's coaching issues lately, I just wanted to comment on how happy I am that Vika has found a solid and successful coaching relationship with Sam. He seems to compliment her personality well and has really improved many aspects of her game including her emotional stability on court.
I think that having a committed camp (Sam and Meilen) has helped her grow into a great player. I hope she sticks with them for the remainder of her career.
Random rant over.
Oh I agree. Sam (and Meilen) have really balanced her.
I feel like when she doesn't have a lot of matches or match rhythm, the first thing to go is her serve. Hopefully she gets it sorted before New York.

I agree, this was more recognisable as the Vika we're used to seeing. Dominant on return, second set I don't know how many points Magda was winning on serve in that second set but it can't have been many. Felt like Vika lost every deuce game on serve though, I wonder if other players have been analysing her serve patterns because it looked awfully predictable at times.
Totally. Let's hope she'll she'll keep improving even more as the tournament goes on - we can thrust her on that.
What a night of tennis this is going to be with Rafa vs Fed and Vika vs Caro.
Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.
I would like to see Vika serve to a reasonable standard, she's going to need to do so to win in New York. Vika needs to dominate the return games, Wozniacki's serve is attackable, and should provide an opportunity to dominate the point from the offset.
