Perhaps. But that has just as much to do with perception from our end than with whatever the truth may be about her personality. But good or bad for tennis? I don't look at it that way. She won it and I always accept whatever a result may be. So, congrats to Vika. And if people don't end up loving her personality they will at least learn to respect her accomplishments.
I dont think casual sports fans know much about Vika. I'm not concerned with haters in GM. Jimmie48 will have a lot of fun arguing with them. Winning a 2nd hardcourt major in 12 months, also serving for the USO vs Serena, makes Vika a very big deal now. She has a chance to be one of the greats. At least a Davenport career. She's only 1 major away. If she wins a 3rd major by AO 2015, she's still only 25 then. Serena is in her 30's, there could be a wide open run to several hardcourt majors.
I was thinking about that with Caroline before she started being inconsistent, it could be Vika's time from about 2015-2020
