I'll admit that wishing players not to win is an awful attitude towards sports, but like all of you here I just can't stomach Vika having 3 slams. So Sarin winning is a good result.

Yep. Look at how Vika struggled in Cincy and this USO and basically the whole 2013, but brought some of her best (relative) game against Sarin. Clear game plan, focused mind, and good execution, she has Sarin as her ultimate goal for 2013 and is inevitably inching closer to solving this riddle. Sumyk deserved more credit than he's given, while OTOH you have people like Mouratoglou...

Spot on. I really see that prototype now on both tours as represented by Djokovic and Vika.

I used to think Sarin has lots of respect for Martha, hence that laser like focus against her. We all know how Martha can make a comeback if you give her an opening. But perhaps after the nth beatdown, Sarin is just too confident to even entertain the thought of losing games, much less matches against Martha
