Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.
I mean Vika broke Sloane seven times in that match and twice in a row before she took the MTO and now people are acting like Sloane lost her last service game only because of that medical break.
The idiots at ESPN should be thankful Vika got injured otherwise their posterchild would have lost 1-6 1-6. The hype they put on poor Stephens for beating virtually nothing, then getting a back/ankle injury and a knee injury gift from Serena/Vika is ridiculous. I really feel for Stephens. Now these idiots will expect her to win Slams and beat healthy elite players, because they can´t and won´t judge the stage of her development and the situation properly. And if she doesn´t deliver soon on these increased expectations, they´ll hammer her as quickly as they pushed her.
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.
