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

I plan on getting my PhD in history and then getting a teaching/researching professorship so I can fangirl academically and still get summers off and get grants so I can travel.

The quant/math is just so stressful. I can barely subtract so you can imagine the uphill climb it's been.

Is anyone watching this Fistpump-Masha match? I think it's even more bizarre than the Vika-Empress one last year.

Is her agent Meilen married (dating) her coach Sam??
How did she meet Meilen?

Yeah, they're married.

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.

Wow, I had no idea. Saw her instagram and I wasn't sure it's Sam, thought maybe his brother He looks quite old in those pics.
So did she become her agent because she was Sam's wife?

Other way round I think, Vika met Sam through being friends with Meilen. Sam used to be Meilen's coach

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

Who do you guys think will win tomorrow? It's hard to bet against Reehanna, but she seems to be so nervous about majors this year. She was a wreck at the end of the Kanepi match, and I didn't watch but I know the Kate match got very close too. Sunshine has had two extremely close matches against her this summer too. I would love to see Sunshine get a major (from completely out of the blue).

It's also funny that after the epic shitshow of upsets early in the Open on the women's side they basically got the highest profile final possible after the Serena-Sunshine "rivalry" and BFFing this summer, while the men have gotten the lowest profile final in at least a decade.

I can see woz winning, unfortunately. I strongly believe in fate and it appears to be her time, and if her fate is to Win, then all the Stars will allign tonight for her to make it possible.
It would be catastrophic for me, as it could be the beginning of a domination, with her winning many gs, a nightmare for me as I dislike her.

Nothing against wozniacki but she just doesn't have the game. Everything really depends on serena tonight, and as for future grandslams, caroline will always be an outside contender in melbourne and new york but not in the picture in Paris and London.

Serena's form this year isn't spectacular, her foot movement and shot preparation seems slower and more prone to breaking down. From mid 2012-13 she was so on top of everything technically that even minor mental meltdowns couldn't really throw her off. Now her game is less stable.

More interested in Nishikori/Cilic to be honest, and it's not often I look forward more to an ATP slam final than I do a WTA slam final.

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

same here... will cheer for nishikori though, but considering cilic: he was able to serve three consecutive aces in his ultimate service game at 5:4 in the third set, and to me that effort was almost absurd. against fedex? in a slam-semi?? beating the GOAT in straights???


Азаранка. Plíšková. Đoković.

cheering for crowd favorites is so fedal.

Such a random final on the men's side. Hoping that Marin can go all the way.

I see Serena winning. I don't really see the 2 matches in Montreal and Cincinnati as positive for Wozniacki. Serena was sub-par in both matches, the first set in Cincinnati was about as poor a set as I've ever seen Serena play, if she couldn't get the job done on those occasions, it's hard to see her getting the job done here.

I had a weird dream tonight Vika was playing against Petra and lost the first set but was about to turn it around in the second set when she hurt her foot and had to retire from that match. She then had a discussion with her mother and told her she wants to get pregnant. Glad I woke up from that mess.
