Thanks for the info! Good to hear that it was something like a wake-up call for her after all.

I really do hope that's what I heard on TV while they showed Vika training.

It's solid top twenty level and Vika was wrong to think she would necessarily cool off.
I saw the Hampton matches you mention and, as you say, her performance against Vika really should not have come as a surprise at all. This kind of makes me question Sumyk's merits as a coach. It makes it look like he was either being disingenuous or covering up for a botched scouting job.

It will be interesting to know what kind of ideas Nadal's PR person can come up with.

Speaking of publicity (or lack thereof), there's something I noticed on the AO website that's been bugging me. Whenever you click on a link, a random player picture gets loaded at the top of the page. Now, after a full week of clicking, I must have seen all the top seeds (male and female) on my screen dozens of times, even the less famous ones - around 20 players in total. Every top seed, that is, except for Vika, current world #1 and AO defending champ. Since I couldn't think of any legitimate reason for not putting her picture in there, I've just taken a look at the source code, and lo and behold, there *is* a Vika banner (link here), it just never shows up for me for some reason, even after hundreds of clicks. Baffling. Either I've been incredibly unlucky, or there's a glitch preventing her picture from loading, which would be rather unfortunate.

Maybe he can't get lost while he's there.
The Queen of Fuckery does not need the attentions of the Rainbow Peasant. Such attentions simply create more fuckery.
