Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.
She played one bad match and suddenly everyone is better than her? Her rally shots were deep and heavy against stephens, it looked like against radwanska she came out and suddenly the shots that were landing a foot inside the baseline were going wide or long. So she took something off them, just to hang in match and hope her timimg came back.
Of course Vika played a shit match against Radwanska. At the same time so did Stephens against Vika. You pull out the return games at 3-5 in the 3rd set against Tolöjanovic and in the 2nd against Svitolina and you´ll see four aggressive returns, you haven´t seen once against Vika. Stephens is mentally weak, completely lackadaisical. She has so much raw talent, but no idea how to channel it. I thought she had it figured out in the 1st set against Rena at the USO, but apparently losing the set 4-6 and the match made her doubt the direction again.
I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
