Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

Vikalanders, I need to travel to another town on Monday and take care of some family matters next week. I probably have to make some other trips in February and March too. I shall naturally take my laptop computer with me, but I can't spend as much time here as usually I do during those trips.

So, I hope the other active members in Vikaland could look after Livescore Thread when Vika plays matches, and keep Pictures and Videos threads updated too.....

Just wanted to let you all know that I'm around and ready to complain about Vika's fuckery again.
I don't know you since I'm still quite new here but just wanted to say that forums like this one are indeed a nice outlet but also a huge source of study evasiveness. So instead of apologizing you can be proud of yourself you sacrificed your forum time to focus on your study. I wish you lots of success!

Well yes I don't think she's a strong number two but this is still a shocking loss.

I've said this so many times now, but she is a joke. The way she played against Vika at the US Open was an anomaly. Every defensive shot landed on or near the baseline. Every BH DTL attempt caught edges of the line. She has never ever come close to playing like that, because she is usually a pretty useless player as evidenced by the way she butchers (easy) Slam draws so many times. Don't get me wrong, she is more talented than Wozniacki definitely, but she relies even more on physically outlasting her opponents, which is disgusting.

Her multiple MTOs during many matches are embarrassing. Something about Halep just seems off to me.

BBC just published an article that eight players in the AO have been flagged for match-fixing and claim it's fairly common though not prevalent. Still interesting though.
