Apart from the fact that Serena plays? And that they probably spend all their budget on her and Venus.

That and playing on green clay isn't advisable. She doesn't like clay and green clay is probably the most dangerous surface around. Playing on it a week after hard courts seems a recipe for disaster. It doesn't even prepare you for anything, as it's the only green clay event on the calendar.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

According to early entry lists she is not wasting time on Stuttgart, so hopefully she stays away.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

She's obviously not skipping Cincinnati or Doha and she's required to play Rogers Cup + confirmed anyways. She also made the Rome final last year and skipping would make no sense anyway, so since she's not required to play Wuhan this year there's a good chance she won't.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

Never followed WTT before. How many matches is she likely to play during this?

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: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

As many as she wants to play probably. It's not really a serious thing. I highly doubt there is much commitment to this at all.

The format if you don't know it is best of 1 set. First to 5 games. Tiebreak at 4 all. No-ad scoring. I think the tiebreak is best of 9 points too.

Didn't know that, thanks.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

Yeah it's not too serious, but it is a time commitment in what would be an off season. And she doesn't live in or near Philadelphia. Seems quite bizarre.

Yes it's a bit bizarre. But I doubt Vika will play more than a couple of matches. It's just a bit of publicity for the event I imagine.

She last played in 2011 (?) I recall she played in shorts and t-shirt she would normally wear for practice

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

According to the tournament sub-forum Vika wants to play Tokyo. It's not THAT surprising as she needs another Premier and seems to really like that tournament, but I thought she wanted more of a break after the US Open after last year.
