After 2-0 in the beginning of the match against Vika, she won only one game. Clijsters wasn't at her best, but she gave Azarenka a match, Aga won a set against Vika, none of these matches were a final. You expect that the other finalist was the best player in that side of the draw. It's not a 2nd round against lower-ranked player, from r4 until the final you don't expect such scorelines. And Maria lost too many finals with horrible scorelines, if that has nothing to do with mentality, then IDK.
