All credit to Vika for coming out and ho,ding her nerve. It couldn't have been easy.

Li Na will kick herself. A missed opportunity.

Despite all the brooha over Vika I still felt pleased for her in the end. I just wish she'd get a classier looking support team. From sweet Sergei to those skanky muppets! Talk about dredging the dregs after such a nice young man!

No one has to pretend anything when the fact that it was Li who got this match in control and was bullying Azarenka behind the baseline most of the time. Not to take anything away from Victoria but it was Li's errors that sealed her own fate, and those unfortunate accidents just made things much worse for her.

Or were you watching a different match perhaps?

Re: AO F: Princess Vika def. Li Na 4-6 6-4 6-3 DEFENDS TITLE!

I still remember when Toria was the unluckiest player on the circuit, and I was all " poor girl can't catch a break".

As for the match, I thought that Toria would be all over Li's serve and wouldn't give Li as much time on the ball as Claypova's high % ground game did as Toria hits with more depth and makes better use of angles - but that it still wouldn't be enough to draw enough errors in rallies from Li, given the latter's excellent aggressive footwork, for Toria to win this, so I expected something like 4 and 4 to Li.

What I didn't anticipate was that Li would blast away Toria's "serve" throughout and that Toria would struggle so much to hold in each and every one of her service games. For a while it seemed this would be a "nasty, brutish and short" blowout. But then we had the DRAMA.

Average quality overall. Not enough TurboToria, Li even at her best doesn't do much for me as her game is still basic, generic high % baseline bashing most of the time, but they still managed to play well at the same time in patches. Far from an embarrassment, when compared to some of the shit we had to endure in the Void Era.

Re: AO F: Princess Vika def. Li Na 4-6 6-4 6-3 DEFENDS TITLE!

Amazing set of events during this game.

I can't believe such a vile, disliked, over-matched (when playing a legitimate opponent), PUSHING, No Serve, untalented of a player has 2 majors already.

Vika didn't deserve to win this match (though she did).

The match was in Na's hands all along, until she got hurt and made some inopportune, key UE's (even before she twisted her ankle 2X and banged her head on the ground, causing 2 medical TO, as well as the Fireworks display, possibly stiffening her ankle), where she could have taken charge and won the 2nd or third set. Na had her chances then setbacks.

Neither player played or served great. However, Vika did nothing. She had about 17 winners and 20+ UE's? I'm sure somebody will provide the proper stats, if they haven't already. Na had 40+ winners, with unfortunately 50+ errors. But I think her percentage of UE to W was still lower than Azarenaka's.

It didn't feel like Azarenka really won this match. That's my problem. I really didn't. As a viewer it just felt, "what else could go wrong with Na, to give this match to Azarenka".

Na did not play great during the third set (ankle or no ankle). However, she played better through out the match than Azarenka, who appeared to be a bystander most of the time in my opinion, and ended up a survivor. She was really exposed again, playing a proper attacking player during a major semi or final (sans Sharapova last Aussie Open).

Nonetheless, Vika is the champion. However, she did not play Championship tennis; either during her previous game or in today's game, where she was just SURVIVED for the victory--it seems.

Yeah, she won two majors. It goes on her record for sure. Fabulous and congrats to her. But color me un-impressed!! She's still a pusher and Wozniaki 2.0 at heart.
