Now that Maria is gone from the top 10, Vika entered it. Their games are kinda similar, powerful groundstrokes side to side, spiced up with grunting.

Most players powerful groundstrokes side to side these days. Vika is not any more similar to Sharapova then any other player, so just lay off with the comparisons.

Vika is her own player, and Maria is hardly retired so it's not quite the time to be looking for the new Maria.

Seems like everyone is in a hurry to label her the next someone. Maybe she will do her own thing. I don't like all the comparisons either. When she beats a defending Wimby champ then maybe we can start talking about her being the next Pova...

no, Vika is Vika, Maria is Maria.

When Azarenka wins 3 grand slam titles, we would see if even to compare them

no I don't like Masha, I like Vika, so to me there's a big difference.
Also at age 19, Masha had 2 slams I think, and a YEC. Vika has, well two internationals and that's it.
I am getting tired of Vika this, Vika that. Vika is getting a lot of hate which she doesn't deserve. Also, all these theads are not even from Vika fans.

She has a nike deal. If she wins a couple of grand slams, picks up a few more commercials to get her over the 20 million a year hump, does a few Letterman appearances, establishes a scholarship program, and gets named one of the week's ten best dressed women in the world by Vogue magazine a couple of times, she really could be the next Sharapova.

She has a way to go, yet.

Vika also needs a lesbian relationship with a hot actress friend.

I hope Vika takes it a step beyond Sharapova. She's improved very quickly. She'll have to be careful in balancing the celebrity status and her devotion to playing. Sharapova's taking her sweet time getting back while schmoozing with Mr. Ebersol and her countless endorsements. I just don't want Vika to be another Anna K.

Hey gals and guys, I watch mens tennis but am starting to watch womens tennis as well. Can you tell me more about this Victoria Azarenka, I saw her at the aussie open and at Indian wells and she gots a nice fit body and she's tall. Her face is ok but maybe as she gets older, she will get hotter. I think she has the talent to become #1.

WowWow

Here, here. Vika to a lesser extent... I wouldn't say she had an annoying personality, but I'd say Maria could do with a reality check. She thinks she's the effing Messiah. I've read the articles... we all know she's a rude bitch, fan or not.

Well obviously Vaidisova and Azarenka are the Sharapova clones - Victoria: how do you hit a traditional volley? Nicole: I don't know, Daddy didn't tell me how, it's all his fault! Maria: Maybe if you scream even louder at the ball that'll work.

You are just making it impossible for Vika.

Even if she wins a couple of grand slams, appears in Vogue magazine, etc., finding a b-level actress in Hollywood who is hungering for publicity and getting her picture taken often, sending out that "may I am, maybe I'm not" vibe, will be a tall order.

Which is precisely why Vika will never be another Maria.

Azarenka is far from being Sharapova. I'd put her even behind Zvonareva.

What Vika misses are some clear winners. She beat Serena with 10 winners and Maria with 2 (!) winners in Moscow. I don't think this kind of luck goes on forever.

I'm sure Victoria and Nicole have been cloned from Maria but I think they've advanced the cloning technique so that we don't have a repeat of the last cloned superstar Dolly the sheep.

for NIKE she is the new Sharapova until Maria comes back, anyway. She's got the tall, thin, blonde thing going on--it's probably time for her to renegotiate her contract with them--she may be the next big thing for them.
