ROTFL NO

Azarenka believes she can beat anyone (and she can), even Serena.
Maria too, even Serena. It's called winning attitude (even if Serena is better she has to go there thinking she CAN win or she'll never win).

Quote:
They are pretty equal at the moment,
yes

but Azarenka is the tougher player mentally.
LMFAO NO, have you been sleeping with Jimmie48?

Quote:
While this is another slamless year of Maria,
still one slam to go
Quote:
Azarenka has managed to defend the AO and win her 2nd Slam
so what
Quote:
(and will be the favorite at the USO if Serena loses early) so I doubt she is worrying about Maria
and Maria isn't? Loot at RG

So, using that criteria, Serena Williams is a REALLY bad match up for Maria, as we all know. No matter what Maria does, it's a huge uphill battle.

But that's not even close to being the case with Vika. If Maria plays well, close to her capability, then Azarenka loses, pure and simple. Unlike against Serena, Maria can dominate Vika anywhere on any surface. Vika is the one that needs help in their matches. She's the one that needs a subpar Maria, making errors, not serving well, and looking a step slow. Maria, on the other hand, doesn't need a lousy Vika to show up to win. Azarenka didn't play that badly in Stuttgart, Istanbul, or Roland Garros. Maria was just better than her and imposed her will because she's more talented. Vika doesn't scare Maria at all. She respects her, but she loves facing her and relishes beating her. She wants to crush her so badly, that's why you see her get tight and error-prone sometimes in their matches.
^ see, you make me quote Mexicola and agree, look how far you make me go! :P
