At *5-5 15:40. She was going to change a stick while hearing she just sent the game away herself.

Racquet and Ball abuse are such stupid offences, especially racquet like all you are doing is breaking YOUR racquet so why should the umpire care. :shrug:

Was it not a second time violation?

She was given a warning for ball abuse a point before, so when she smashed the racket, it was an automatic point penalty.

This little outburst did her at the end. The last game went by her as fast as a Venus Williams serve.

Even that is an understatement. :sobbing::tape: I need a GIF.

She deserved it. Not to say that I didn't love it and think it was entertaining, but I really don't believe there is an argument that she shouldn't have gotten a penalty.

Yeah, just like a billionaire can smash chandeliers in his mansion if he feels like it. :o Or a student can rip apart his own book in front of the teacher if he feels like it. Right.

Well I suppose it is theirs. Like my books at school were always graffitied because they were mine and I liked to doodle, it did ruin the books but I did own them.

i really like this Azarenka, an original girl, great effort/attitude on court and no annoying antics - breath of fresh air

hopefully she takes over the game soon.

indeed

How did she abuse the ball?

she hit it away - most likely out of the stadium - LOL

then she got the warning
it was 15-30 at this point
then she missed the next point, and then hit her raquet on the ground, as she walked to the bench to get a new raquet she got the 2nd warning for raquet abuse and since 2nd warning is point for opponent it was the game for Caro
after the umpire said it she totally smashed her raquet - just loved it

even I am a fan of her, I just feel she deserved it. Hey, you got a MP at 5-4*, many deuces to win it at 6-4, missed. 5-5 15-0 then a miss of a easy smash. Throwing a racket CANNOT solve everything.

she deserved it. That temper of hers needs to be fixed. I like that she has personality but when it costs her points like that, well damn it is frustrating.

ouch, she will not like watching this back. But hey :lol:

Is it me, or does she come across like a spoilt child? As in when Serena had her slightly darker moment - she was visibly angry. Vika just seems, well like a spoilt brat kicking off? :confused:

Because it is the wrong way to behave as a sportswoman, and they should know it already. But in case they don't have the self control, then the penalty is needed.

Thanks for that link!

A few things:

1. The video says SEWTA Doha: Azarenka vs Wozniacki. LOL at the SEWTA. :p

2. The Stella outfit makes Caro look like she is fat and wearing a potato sack. Seriously needs to be changed.

3. The "caring" look Caro gives Vika after the kiss. :rolls:

4. Vika's "grunt" is so loud and long. :tape:
