Plain delusion focusing only on this. Like the Azarenka matches, AO SF or Miami final never happened (just examples from the last 12 months).
Her goal should be to be better player, and the results would come against EVERYONE. The way she is doing, mentally or technically/tactically, not looking that bright tho. Of course its still way better against anyone outside top5-10.
