It seems that Serena's loss to Vika is going to act as a sort of revulsive or extra motivation to Serena. There's a thread in GM with some totally (as expected) over the top posts. If anyone benefited largely from that match was obviously Victoria.
^ my thoughts exactly, everyone over in GM thinks that the Cincy loss has motivated Serena (which it probably has) therefore she is going to 'distroy' Vika and win the title 60 60
. But the win for Vika has defiantly given her the mental edge over Serena, coupled with the defeat in last year's final i think that Vika is more motivated to win it then ever and now she believes she can win it
