Agree, she seems nice and has a lot of talent.
I don't get what the big deal was about the injury break. I think it has a lot to do with everyone thought they had a new young american star that could win the big tournaments. They may have it 2 years or so. It is not Vikas fault the journalists were flying away in the clouds about Sloane after the Serena match.
If they allow players to take injury breaks, how can anyone say Vika was not really needing it? If they want to remove injury breaks, fine. Same rule for everyone.
I think it is open season on her because Belarus is a small country. And her playing style is not liked by everyone. ( hard to understand the last part )
Anyway, so very strong to be in second ao final. Remarkable result in the last 5 slams overall. And still undefeated this year.
