American media would not have given two single fucks if she were playing Jovanovski and you all know it.

I just love how Vika can give two fucks about everything.

Defend your title gurl.

That wasn't meant as shade. She was very friendly towards Hampton at the net. Vika hardly ever takes MTOs unless she basically retires later on in the match.

And since when is taking an MTO for having trouble to breath cheating?

Not a good match from either, and I'm not sure about that medical timeout from Vika....still glad she's in the final I guess.

Does the Aussie crowd even cheer on Azarenka's winners?

Re: AO SF: Azarenka def. Stephens 6-1, 6-4

My thoughts:

1) Vuvuzenka was within her rights to take that timeout. But really, she should have known better. She's not some catty, mid-ranked journeywoman who is desperate to win her first SF of a 25k in Mali or something. She's the world #1, with plenty of experience at this level. Honestly, if you need a 10 minute break to disrupt the momentum of some rookie who isn't close to your level then you deserve all the shit that you get.

And the crowd are going to be dead silent if she wins on Saturday. She's not even a pantomime villain; crowds just genuinely dislike her, and her generic brand of tennis doesn't do anything to help that.

2) Stephens has a long way to go before she starts contending regularly deep into the second week of slams. She deserves credit for holding it together in the 3rd set against Serena, but gamewise, apart from being super athletic, and having a decent 1st serve and FH, she needs to put in a whole lot of hard work. Really crap BH, non-existant ROS and the inability to play consistently aggressive from the baseline. She was clearly a few levels off the pace for most of the match today.

It's great for the game that she made the SFs, but unless she improves quite a few things in her game, I don't think she'll be making this sort of thing a regular thing.

Thank you Vika! Sloane's win over an injured opponent was just overhyped, thanks for straights setting her ...which makes Robson's win over a fully fit Clijsters at the USO12, more valid

Re: AO SF: Azarenka def. Stephens 6-1, 6-4

Cry me a river... Stephens is American no surprise like per usual they're so quick to criticize and cheer their next 'Oudin'. As for GM, filled with frustrated people whom for various reasons and the main probably can't accept the Victoria-era anyways doesn't matter or influence her trends in majors, 3rd consecutive slam SF, 3rd consecutive HC slam F, 4th or 5th consecutive SF any tournaments counfounded [...] for all the predictions that she was going to assuredly flop in 2013 during the off season [...] hope she's 100% for the F and the title will be hers.

I'm seriously though worried about her nerves, I would have believed after 3 HC slam F, the USO experience and the past season these kind(s) of thing(s) would kind of definitively be sorted, yet she almost cracked serving for the match againt Stephens, ugh (!) -- I really pray that she doesn't do a Stephens or a Serena against Li when she serves for the title [...] another F lost in this manner would be really disheartening when she should already deservedly be at 3 slams. Glad she's turning the prediction of being the next Clijsters to reality [...] but would also be glad if she also came to doing the same on clay/grass.
