Good first set! Keep it up.

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.

Interesting final. Greg Rusedski described it was "one of the best tennis matches he'd ever seen". I didn't think it was near that. It was full of ebbs and flows, in general I felt like there was a lack of both players playing their best tennis at the same time for long periods. Nadal totally dominated the first set and looked in control, but gradually lost control as the 2nd set went on, then a mixture of Nadal's level dipping (his forehand went completely AWOL for a period) and Djokovic's level rising led to Djokovic dominating for a period. It was in this period that Djokovic really failed to take full advantage. He had chances to go up a double break in that 3rd set that probably would have been set over and he ended up paying for it when his level dropped off. He had a chance again to regain ascendancy at 0-40 at 5-5, but then once he lost the set it seemed to fill Nadal with confidence while Djokovic appeared deflated.

Nadal #13 .

Sooo happy for Rafa!

I'm really hapy for Rafa. Like Vika, he was youngster I kept my eye on for a while. It's always satisfying to see them come good.
If Rafa can stay healthy, I definitely think he can match Roger's 17.

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

Ha I had an exchange with Matt Cronin on twitter earlier. The first tweet has gone now, basically he wrote an article on the race to Istanbul, but he was basing his judgments off the WTA rankings.

Quote:
Oliver ‏@Razor_Oz 2h
@TennisReporters Why do you use rankings and not race when talking YEC? You talk of Caro "falling out". She's 500 pts away from #8 in race.

Oliver ‏@Razor_Oz 2h
@TennisReporters Stephens is also a lot closer to Istanbul than you say too. Using the rankings rather than the race is heavily misleading.

Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters 2h
@Razor_Oz Not trying to mislead: most people read rankings rather then race, but I see your point even though same players in mix

Oliver ‏@Razor_Oz 1h
@TennisReporters The bit about Caro is a bit misleading. You make out like it's in her hands. Reality is she has to do a lot to make YEC.

Oliver ‏@Razor_Oz 1h
@TennisReporters Probably 2 free slots (3 if Sharapova doesn't play). Kvitova, Jankovic and Sloane are probably the lead contenders for them

Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters 1h
@Razor_Oz Your "challenge" stands. I just changed it. & you are right about Caro: likely must play at same level or better 2012 Fall

Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters 1h

@TennisReporters Ha it wasn't really a challenge. You done a good job on changing it though. Most journalists wouldn't bother . Good read.
I give Cronin a lot of credit here. Most journalists would have just ignored me and persisted with what they had written. Impressed that there are at least some journalists out there that are still open minded.
