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

I wouldn't bet my house on it tbh...

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.

A mixture of Serena was playing poorly, wasn't moving that well. Sharapova was playing well and playing a better tactical match than she normally does vs Serena.

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

I think it's fair to say that's the closest Sharapova will get to beating Serena in a long time.

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

Sharapova played so well at the start, still it just felt like it was a matter of time before Serena found her game. I think this might be as close as it gets between them.

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

For a set and a half Maria was the better player. Surely and slowly Serena woke up and took her game to Maria. And then Maria completely went away in the third. Since 2012 a couple of times even though maria played as well as she could, she is usually the one to blink under pressure.

Another competitive final between the top players. Welcome to the party Maria.

Although I find Sharapova awkward to watch it was good to see a competitive match. Maria using her "claypova" style on hard courts (in the set she won she had only 5 winners but controlling most of the points) is the way forward for her I think. Trying to just blast at the top players is not really going to get her anywhere.

Serena's serve is not what it was in the second half of last year. The rest of her game is still great, once her forehand clicked, but it means she has to rally a lot more on her service games and things can break down. In this form Vika, Sharapova, Kvitova (grass) and Li (clay) should feel they have a chance to beat her. Vika more than just a chance

Talking about the tournament as a whole I thought it was pretty good on the women's side. I enjoyed Rybarikova's and Flipken's matches, and Serena's. The bottom half was dull but to be expected. I haven't watched any ATP matches.

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

From my post on GM.

Since 2012 :-
ATP top 4 % of matches lost to outside the top 4 - 7.65%
WTA top 3 % of matches lost to outside the top 3 - 4.42%


Yet the general consensus would be that the ATP top 4 are a lot more bulletproof in the media. I think the triumvirate at the top of the WTA deserves more recognition for their dominance.

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

In recent times I always got the impression that the likes of Federer and Djokovic would drop matches to lesser players more so than Vika or Serena would. For Vika, losing to anyone outside of the top 10 is almost a rarity these days.

Interesting stat! It really shows how consistent the top 3 have been and that they deserve to be called "big 3".
