haha im not trolling hon, it's called logic
vika has alot of points to defend, it is going to be very difficult to sustain the level that she had this year
she has a weight of expectations which may also affect her
add that to the possibility of playing players in form like Serena, Sharapova, Kvitova, Li Na, Sam Stosur, even Wozniacki.......i think dropping out of the top 5 is quite reasonable

Why does everyone have to be so mean? I am such a nice poster....... y'll are just insecure

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

Pressure dosen't bother her much, she has shown that after winning the AO. Instead of slumping she went into a very strong run. She did the same after the Olmpyics which could have caused another disruption of her year..but didn't.

She obviously isn't affected by this much and unless she's getting injured there's no way she's dropping out of the Top 3 next year.

Maria Sharapova has also lots of points to defend in the early part of the year 2013. She was a runner-up in Australian Open, Indian Wells and Miami in 2012. When Vika is no.1 seeded in those early tournaments, doesn´t it mean in theory that semifinalists would be Vika (1) vs. Aga (4) and Maria (2) vs Serena (3)?

Basically to stay No.1 in January 2013 Vika needs to win Serena Williams in AO Final. It was already close in US Open. She probably needs to play something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLQoVphE6Cg

What comes to the other top 10 or top 20 players, Vika should beat them quite safely. For instance Lucie Safarova made me a bigger impression than Petra Kvitova when the Czechs played against the Serbian sisters in Fed Cup finals.

Will people EVER stop with this "points to defend" nonsense?! It means absolutely NOTHING in real terms. Everyone starts the year with 0 points contributing to their year-end ranking.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

In answer to the OP: Nah. Most of the players who have had such epic downfalls in recent years were uber-defensive players who's matches were never in their hands, and so all it took was for players just to figure out how to play the right/smart way to play them, they didn't even need to play at a high level. Whereas, although Vika does predicate her game on defence (especially against top players), she still has a strong offensive element to her game unlike Jankovic/Wozniacki, and so it's not enough for players just to 'figure her out', they still need to execute at a very high level to beat her.

I don't think Vika will do quite as well as she did this year, and I suspect she won't win a slam in 2013, but I still expect her to be extremely consistent in reaching the last rounds of all tournaments and generally only losing to Serena, Sharapova or Kvitova.

Sharapova, Serena, Radwanska....they all have "lots of points to defend." Why single out Azarenka? Anything is possible of course, but if she were the type that couldn't deal with raised expectations I think it already would have shown after her AO win. It's likely that she won't have the start of the season that she had in 2013. It would be pretty remarkable if she managed to do something similar two years in a row, but I see no signs of an imminent demise.

I think she will win one more AO and then will never win a Slam again
