Vika Made Front Page Sunday Times!

I can't remember the last time a non-Wimbledon slam women's champ made the news here in the UK. The Roland Garros champs are lucky to be even mentioned in the back pages!

Yet here is Vika, photo and headline 'Victor Victoria' - those old enough will recognise the pun on an old Julie Andrews movie musical! - slap bang on the front page of the main paper, not even just the sports section!

Congratulations to Vika on finally raising the profile of women's tennis. She could be a real asset No 1 like the big stars of before!

Re: Vika Made Front Page Sunday Times!

She sort of became just as famous in Britain as the Wimbl champs because of shriek and now everyone I talk to about tennis knows vika.

Re: Vika Made Front Page Sunday Times!

I think people in Britain first took real notice of Vika this last Wimbledon when she gave Petra that tough semi. Good for Vika, she deserves it!

Re: Vika Made Front Page Sunday Times!

People know about her for years now. Mainly its about her grunting rather than winning matches. Anyway, nice change from that.

Re: Vika Made Front Page Sunday Times!

It's so exciting!

I remember at school telling classmates Justine won The French for the 4th time yet no one had heard of her, now everyone knows Vika! My friends didn't even know who Lin Na or Petra were, but they all know Vika!

Another pun on an old movie, A Star Is Born!
