If people were smart, they'd just petition Nike for better outfits for Vika.

We shall need some Grandmarenka powers today against Pennetta. No shades of the Dark Time.

I don't think there will be an easy way to beat her either, she's too adaptable unlike Caro.
No doubt there is no simple masterplan to beat Vika, but attacking her serve makes a lot sense. It also seems more players use Vika´s own ROS tactics against her and try to return deep through the middle. Noticed a few times Vika´s footwork is not ready and she leaks short balls from there that the opponents can attack. Now just an aggressive ROS doesn´t guarantee you victory, but it is a strategy Vika needs to handle in the future and tbh, if she can develop a 20-30% better serve because of it, she´d be in great shape for the next few years.

Is Vika injured? Vika's odds have near trebled in the space of about 30 minutes. Hundreds of thousands opposing her...

There is seemingly an infinite supply of money willing to oppose her at crazy odds. No-one is doing that unless they know something. They better be wrong .

Go to an exchange. Bookies are always slow because they have retirement protection.

Great another Indian wells/Miami/Wimbledon moment before her match. Let hope this time it works out better. But i agree, very suspicious when the odds start to change a lot.

Good luck Vika, final in sight!

1.35 seems fair. I don´t think Pennetta is a good match-up at all. She hasn´t dropped a set yet either. More likely that people feel Pennetta is a good bet at 5.0-6.0. If she drifted to 1.5, I´d be concerned.

Mouratoglou telling Pennetta to go after Vika´s serve.

Its gone somewhat normal now. It's the approx £500k that out of nowhere decided it wanted to oppose her that is somewhat worrying. There are a number of theories you can take from this, but that's not normal.

I'd love to see Vika play her cloned self to see if either can hold serve in the match
