Re: IW Chat Thread
Vika drops the first set to Flipkens 6-3.
I still expect her to turn it around and win and I honestly hope she doesn't lose before the final. As subpar as I think Maria's playing, I don't want her to get free passes and an easy road. To win a prestigious title, I want to see Maria take down at least a couple of elite players so it feels like an earned win. This tournament is already without Serena and Li. Losing Vika early would make it empty.
