She remained positive, upbeat, and full of confidence and sure of herself that her time would come. And that patience and perseverance paid off today. She believes she's going to win every time she steps onto the court.
All that being said, I still can't stand her.
I don't want to like Vika but i can't help but admire her. That today was just a fabulous performance. Well deserved champion of Doha again.
Maria i feel on her day can beat Vika and Serena but she needs to believe. At the moment she just has a mental block when she plays either one. They are no better than Maria they just think they are. Big difference.
