Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Episode 19, Asderaki Lays Down the Law!

If there's a Mutley then it's surely Sam Sumyk.

When I cast Vika in the role of villain, she was being widely vilified in the media and had been booed onto court in a grand slam final. Frankly it had gotten more than a little over the top. The original Vik Dastardly episode was lampooning the media portrayal of Vika rather than sending up Vika herself. More recent episodes have been a bit of both.

I think that's why her fanbase haven't come after me with torches and pitchforks yet.

Casting another player as her partner in crime wouldn't really work. Nearly all of Vika's dastardly shenanigans take place on court. There is simply no role for another player as her sidekick.

I thought it would be straight forward, having done the "Smash Your Racquet Like A Pro" guide last year but it turns out that Vika's racquet smashing technique is very unconventional and really rather poor. Feet together, no forward weight transfer, bending at the back and bashing away at the ground with a semi-western forehand grip. It's no wonder she gets so many injuries.
Her style is unorthodox but it works rather well. She can smash rackets on any surface--she has serious career grand "slam" potential. And she has lot of variety--you never know when she is going to just silently go about her business or add a tantrum to really mix things up and keep her opponent guessing. Sometimes it's the details that can really give a player the upper hand over her opponent.

Threatening to switch to Babolat is a perfect example of Vika's ability to play mind games. First of all, she throws her opponent completely off-guard with her sudden willingness to speak well for a rival company. Secondly, she shows that she's willing to put her tennis aspirations ahead of her marketing potential. This is a great tactic for gaining a psychological advantage and a prime example of what it can take to become a mentally strong professional.

I think Vika's tantrums are one of the most underrated nuances of her game.

It's really funny how you get her oncourt behaviour precisly. The pitchforks stay for the moment

Back when I did that first Vika episode I had a backup plan in the event that her fans did take umbrage. My avatar at the time was a chimpanzee. I was going to post a cartoon showing a chimp wearing jeans and a sweater and carrying a sketch pad and pencil, running for his life pursued by an angry mob, brandishing the aforementioned torches and pitchforks and carrying placards that read "VIKA'S NO CHEATER" and "THE CHIMP'S A CHUMP".

But you were all such great sports that I never got to do it.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Episode 19, Asderaki Lays Down the Law!

Angie would be a perfect Mutley, but maybe too perfect. Vika and her fans have pretty thick skins, but I think Angie's feelings would be more easily hurt. I would feel sorry for her.

Maybe you should ask Max if he'd mind you borrowing his Wicky as Vika's sidekick

I cannot confirm or deny whether Wicky will or will not be appearing in TftLR or indeed whether she will or will not be behaving badly should she make such an appearance [/DOUBLESPEAK]

She's definitely top of my list of players that need to be included but I don't have a script ready yet. I could probably shoehorn her into a cartoon in a supporting role but it wouldn't be right. When, not if, when, Venus appears she'll be the star. That much I can promise.

Perhaps I did this cartoon all wrong. Maybe it's Serena who needs to hire this guy to hypnotize her into believing Cornet is Sharapova
