I was banking on him showing up at the Eastern section ones, which are held at the BJKNTC.

Del Potro winning this tournament by beating Murray, Djokovic and Nadal would be awesome

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

I went to bed when Djokovic broke for 2-0 in the third set but I was so happy when I checked the scores today and saw that the final was Nadal vs del Potro. I'm totally fine with both winning this tournament, just hoping for a good match.

Wait so you wanted to go see him? Please say only to laugh at the scoreline when he gets thrashed

Btw who are your other faves, I can never tell because your twitter (still not entirely sure which one(s) you are) is really unbiased.

From 3-0 to 4-6 Delpo has found his FH

Such a great win for Rafa! He was over the moon after MP.

DelPo. I hope he continues to play like that.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

Just want to share some thoughts on this tweet:

Beyond The Baseline ‏@SI_BTBaseline
Miami draw: Serena's half full of land mines: Li, A-Rad, Kvitova, Wozniacki, Venus, Sloane all there. Azarenka/Sharapova get softer side.

That just doesn't sound right. The only "land mines" I see here are Kvitova and potentially Li but it's Na's first tournament in a while after all. Serena has never had problems against Aga and she certainly wouldn't have problems against Venus in her current shape. Does anyone actually believe Caro can pull a win like last year? And we've seen how the match against Stephens went when Serena wasn't injured. Vika's draw isn't that much easier imo - she probably has to play against two future American GOATs (), Kerber in QF and IW champion Sharapova in SF. Let's not forget that Serena has only one of those land mines in her quarter which means she has to play against Li in the QF and against one of the other opponents in the SF. It's not like her whole run to the title is mined.

I'd rank the difficulty of the draws of the top 4 like:

1) Radwanska: R3 Barthel (I can actually see her lose here), R4 V. Williams/Stephens, QF Kvitova, SF S. Williams
2) Williams: QF Li/Wozniacki, SF Kvitova (although you never know with her)
3) Azarenka: QF Kerber, SF Sharapova
4) Sharapova: QF Errani, SF Azarenka

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.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

Yeah, I don't see how you can call the fourth seed whose game is well known and predictable a land mine.
Li will be rusty.
Kvitova is not close to the tennisforum hype.

Maybe those two players could beat Serena if she's in average form and they have a really good day, she'd have to play really badly or get injured to lose to the rest.

If Vika isn't fit, and with Sharapova's ridiculously easy early rounds that will give her a chance to adjust from IW, it's hard to see past a Serena/Sharapova final, and we know how that will go.

edit: SIBTBaseline = Forty Deuce = Courtney Nguyen? I get confused with multiple twitter accounts

Yes.

Name-wise the top half is heavier but as you said it's hard to rate Li and Kvitova, both could easily lose early and Stephens hasn't done anything since the AO.
If the rumour that Vika withdrew is true, the bottom half really is quite easy though
