Uhmm, Azarenka was much closer to beating Serena than Sharapova has been in the last 8 years
And I hate Azarenka so you know I'm not biased.
i don't really understand these "last 8 years"..... Azarenka never beat Serena as Masha did in 2004 , never , not only in her last "___" years .. Masha's Wimbledon and YEC is what is in history books , and even epic match in 2005 at AO is there .... Can't say it about 2012 USO Final , which will be forgotten very soon, because the quality of tennis was really poor that day
Unless, they relax the AER, I'm not sure we will have a new double digit champion anytime soon.
Serena was MORE restricted than the AER, by her parents.
The AER is NOT the problem.
