Re: It's dead obvious Azarenka is going to flop this season

If she loses to anyone not named Serena in Brisbane than she's a flop.

Vika has been super-consistent, I don't think her level will drop significantly, but it's a question of if she can keep/raise it if Maria/Serena can produce another good year.

Please just dont let Aga finish YE #1.
This! Except for the Aga part

I mean, seriously, why is almost everybody assuming that Serena and Maria will have a great year? I can see Serena becoming more and more part-timer and Maria loosing her focus. Besides, they are older than Vika and in this sport it may be important. It will be hard for Vika to be so dominant as in the first part of the previous year, but come on... she's proved herself last year.

Re: It's dead obvious Azarenka is going to flop this season

I don't think so. She'll probably have a worse season than the 2012 one because of Serena's dominance and consistency, but she'll still have a pretty good one, ending the year in the top 3.

Re: It's dead obvious Azarenka is going to flop this season

With Vika's metronomic crosscourt intense but high percentage game she aint leaving the top 3/5 for a long time. Think Lena D but with the balls to win.

But anyway, I don't see Vika keeping her #1 ranking but she will no doubt stay in the top 3 all year long. & I think she will win one slam, probably the Australian.
how can live anyone with such username.

Why does a nonsense thread from an obvious hater and troll get 50+ replies?

If WTA would be a decent organization, they would just ban this Shevil from any sport event.

We shall see anyway.
I don't think so. If she couldn't deal with the pressure it would have shown immediately after she won the AO and took over the #1 ranking. Instead of crumbling she went on a 26 match winnig streak. Even a loss like the USO final will actually encourage her because she came so close to winning it. In a way the pressure is off her somewhat because everyone expects Serena to destroy the field in 2013. That doesn't mean that Vika will win another major or end the season as #1. But I wouldn't be terribly surprised if she ended up achieving one or even both of those things. Unless severe injuries make it impossible I would be very surprised if she ends the year out of the top four though.

Re: It's dead obvious Azarenka is going to flop this season

I agree. She has shown time and time again that pressure does not bother her. Right after the AO or the USO final would have been the moments to crumble but she didn't, quite the contrary...she went on to win big titles just weeks after.

Yeah I don't think she's bullshitting when she says the pressure doesn't really bother her all the time in press conferences.

Yes, if anything, I think she only gets more motivated by being number one.

Re: It's dead obvious Azarenka is going to flop this season

To be honest, i think she had way more pressure when she was a rising star but she didn't do that well at GS.
Now she is a Slam winner, she showed that she can compete with anyone, if she were mentally tougher the US Open final would be a different story, but at least she knows she can compete against the best players.
If she doesn't do well this year, it will be for different reasons, being out of form, injuries, but if all goes ok, i think she will win a Slam
