Same here. After ten years of this crap it's starting to show. Gray hairs are awfully depressing for a 29 year old.
The sad thing is, you'd think I'd be over it. Vika isn't my first favorite. I'd just get depressed with Lindsay's losses (because they were always big slam matches) but Vika I just get angry. Like I damn near threw something through the tv last night.

This is pretty much the same here, and it begs the question, is it healthy to support a player whose performances make me nervous and angry rather than give you something to always look forward to? It's a bit unhealthy, and I wish I still didn't feel annoyed over that dumb match yesterday.

Haha I was fine with the first set, because I can understand flat/bad matches, but it was when things started to fall apart in the third set that I got so annoyed. But as soon as Doha comes around I'll be wanting more of it.

All players would do that to their fans at times, and I'd expect vika less so than 99% of them. Its normal to be annoyed after she plays a bad match, it just shows you like her and have high expectations for her.

I'll be annoyed the rest of the week, but at the same time Doha can't come soon enough.

I reckon I'll feel a bit better if Na wins, especially after losing in two AO finals.

I am also a Venus fan I think it makes ones character stronger

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie

Well on the bright side there's no way Vika would've beaten Pome today .

Quite often you'll see a player following up a match where everything turns to gold with one where everything goes wrong.

Cibulkova's not that impressive, just nothing working for radwanska.

OMG this tournament . Pome in the final is a new low for me. Besides that, the latter rounds of this tournament have been complete shit too . Pome is playing GOAT right now but I can see the final being another beatdown too .

Oh my GOD. If NaNa wins this AO, she will have not faced a single top twenty opponent .

I feel bad for some of Aga's true fans on this board.. but all the Vika haters can kiss Domi's butt.

Assuming Li makes the final (edit: and she did, haha) it will probably be another rollercoaster scrappy match like last year

Kinda like the final. I'm rooting for Li and if she wins it it's really deserved imo. But if Domi wins then I'll just be LMAO at the randomness of the women's tournament and accept the fact that we will probably have a lot of similar random results in the future.
