Now what I think is the pressure. The pressure as the favorite, the pressure of history if she could defend it. She played conservatively she was asked to pay.

She can deal with Serena's serve and not aga's. Clearly not thinking straight.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

If Na can't win this final, she'll never win the AO, which would be a hell of a blemish on her career since it's by far her best slam. Pomenika proved, however, that Aga didn't do anything special against Vika. Of course, unlike Vika, Pomenika's shots were landing in. Sure she played a few trick shots but she only did that once she had Vika down double breaks and was full of confidence; showing off. Vika delivered a bushel of fuckery and Aga said thank you. If Aga can crumble to a nervous opponent like Pomenika and can't put any sort of scoreboard pressure on her than she isn't going to win a slam.

I think the reason people got so freaked out about the Wimbledon upsets last summer was because A. the grass was clearly tampered with, B. a lot of players went out in a short span of the first few days, and C. it's Wimbledon. It's not supposed to happen at Wimbledon.

If the final is festive enough, I might return to spread my bitterness to GM.

Wait what about the grass being tampered with? I was without internet for most of Wimbledon too so everything I know about it is just after but I never heard that .

WOW for Stan!!! Even though Nadull wasn't playing that well all tournament I didn't think Stan had any shot. Nice to have someone different there too!!

That booing of Nadal after his MTO was a bit unexpected?

Very happy Stan won, cool guy, finally making the most of it.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

What did everyone think about this AO? For me it was seriously the worst major I remember, and I've been following the tour since 2006.

I haven't seen the men's final, but it sounds crazy. They had one great match, of Novak and Stan, but the rest was generally unmemorable, at least for the ATP's current standards. The WTA truly had zero great matches! Most people think Lady Aga's third set was brilliance, so fine if they want to think that, and Fistpump's big upset was a decent match, but nothing else. The semis were extremely boring and the final was worse. I'd love to hear other opinions .

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

It was a bit mediocre, but both sides had deserving winners. On the WTA side the SFs were pretty one sided, definitely not close to the drama/thrill of the 2012 SFs. Apart from Stan's wins, very little that stood out. I quite enjoyed the first set of the Na/Pome final, but predictably Pome couldn't keep up in the end. The Stan/Nadal final went from exciting to farcical and then settled at just average for me.

Out of all the AOs this decade so far, this is probably the most underwhelming.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

The Sharapova matches were quite entertaining In general I thought the early part of the tournament was quite good, can't remember specific matches, but decent quality and few one-sided scorelines. Later part of the tournament probably suffered from a lack of Vika and Serena

Don't watch much ATP but thought Federer played a good tournament. The main problem with the final was Nadal's poor level / injury. Stan played a typically up and down match, and I made a typically quality prediction about his chances a few pages back:
