This sounds like a Wozniaki fans argument for consistency now.
What in the blue hell is part-time about a 51-4 W/L this year to date?

Serena will be snatching a blonde wig on Saturday, and then she will be the indisputable player of the year.

And when speaking about accomplishment H2H is irrelevant. Serena lost in the 1st round of FO and 4th round of AO and can't compensate it with her H2H vs top players.

If Serena wins US Open , her 2012 achievements will be greater than anyone's in the tour this year..
Wimbledon used to be the most prestigious tournament, now it is just a fast and slippery surface. You have a future in politic as spin-master.

This year's USO will bring quite the excitement the WTA needs with three of the top stars of the game literally competing for POY - and I think the winner deserves to have that year-end title...

Are you a kid ? Victoria was on rate that she obviously was never going to keep for whole of the season -- you sound ridiculous especially that all the SF Victoria lost this year were against the winner and relative top heavy favorite for the title.

Victoria's last F was in Madrid, on grass she's far from being the top favorite and lost both times to Serena -- since then, she's played one joke match against Paszek and she's yet in another SF in the US Open -- so what exactly is your point, we have no idea.

Maria, vika, Aga, Petra . Top 5 except Petra

Serena is out of the question for Player of the Year...1R at Roland Garros 4rd Australian Open. The winner of Azarenka/Sharapova should get POY.


Just because u said so don't make it so particularly if they fail to win 2 slams. POY is in the bag for Serena should she lift the 2012 USO trophy. What more, tennis pundist and those that count in tennis world will state exactly just that. They never fail. IT'S HOW THE GAME ROLLS. WATCH AND LEARN.

Lastly, can u show us the thread/post, article, blog or whatever where a Serena fan claimed the Olympics is just a glorified exhibition?

Even if Serena doesn't win this tournament (she will, but still) she's still the only one of the big three who has won titles on all surfaces. Azarenka has won, what, 4 titles this year and all came in the first three months of the year on hard courts and Maria's three titles all came on clay.
I don't know if it's her cooling off or everyone else picking up, but I think it's interesting that after starting the year at 26-0, she hasn't been to a final since Madrid.

I would even argue that Maria's having a better year even with 1 less title

The gap in accomplishment between finalist and winner is greater than that between a 1st round loser and a finalist.

If Serena wins, she has POY on lockdown. It'll be interesting if Maria or Vika win USO but Serena manages to win YEC.

I see that as hard but fair. Winning another French seems an almost impossibility for Serena now, but you never know, she may surprise us -- I personally think she needs 18 and RG, but don't really care about YEC.
