Why do you suppose the Anglo-Aussie-American commentariat are incapable of recognizing that Azarenka & Vera Zvonareva HAVE TRADED COACHES? Yeah, we know Antonio van Grichen is now pemanently with Vera & now we clearly see Samuel Sumyk attached to Vika. The mouthpieces note who they are individually but it seems to beg no comment at all.
Well, I'll tell you why: [;)] You knew I was gonna.
They're too busy shierking that Vika speaks English with an American accent and has clearly become a Yank.
Remind you of someone else? [:P]
Gimme a freakin' break. Vika has been in Scottsdale Arizona for not quite four years, mentored by a RUSSIAN HOCKEY STAR & living with his family. That sound like a virtual Yankee to you?
How long will people have to listen to the same threadbare scam before snapping how the commentariat jacks them around.
By last night's match, they were finally yammering about the coach swap--trying to make something negative & divisive of it as always. I don't even feel like repeating their crap.
I guess I'm good with last night's outcome. [^o)] Vera will be bummed 'cause--just like in the match--she still has trouble moving past things. But I felt there was at least a marginal chance that Vika (assuming SHE can keep a grip) might freak Serena, and I just don't see Vera pulling that off right now.
Davaiii, Vika!!! [H] You got on top of the old broad before, you can do it again!
Does she have a chance to beat Serena ?
I'm not sure, would be nice if she could.
Vika continued to play really well, and knows it. Venus edging her out of the second set with net cord luck did not impair Vika's confidence in her game at all. Let's be clear: Venus had to play her BEST tennis to win this match--even Mercer & Croft admitted that.
They have to take Vika very seriously now and, because they've already started the "Amerikan Vika" chorus ("Amerikan Masha" verse two), I'm gonna explode this bullsh!t right now. Consider, Vika is clearly working very well with Sam Sumyk. Now, how tight must she be with Zvonareva to successfully trade coaches?
Right. And Vera is arguably the most ideological of the Russian players. Think about it. [H]
Seen this before? I think it's from around this time last year--the article, I mean. Picture, who knows?
wow.. i thought it was 2-3 yrs ago!(based on the pic.) but [8-)] havent seen this before..
Congrats to Вікторыя Азарэнка, Tsarina of Stanford! [8-|] Not to mention: guys, keep an eye on "Image" postings the next few days. Even on ESPN2--when Vika breaks to 5-1 in the second & goes to dump the remaining ball--skirt-lift with major buttcheek, major, I say! I know someone will post captures of that.

LOL.. [:P] but congrats to her..
Congrats to Вікторыя Азарэнка, Belarusian Tsarina of Moscow! Hail to the Union State!
amen! haha.. congrats!!! trophy looks like a GS trophy.... hahaha
well said! with her iron steel and shrieking aplomb, vicci the bella-rus will be number 1
Not fair that noone talks about this girl. She's just won another major title after beating world #2 and #3 on the row. Who can do better right now???
I don't like the way she plays tennis because she's just another hard hitter. I don't appreciate her grunting on the court because it sounds so vulgar and because I always think the women tennis should be all charm and classy to make the difference with men's tennis.
In spite of that, I gotta reckon Victoria Azarenka 100% deserved her win today. She played smart, solid, consistent. Her arms didn't tremble when Sharapova fought back in the 2nd set.
Good she will be ranked #6 next Monday. My hope is that Vika does much better than Wozniacki and takes the #1 with a GS victory!
I can recognize that she played better at this tournament than Masha. She is a good example.
She defeated the stronger tennis players. She surprised Vera with a 6 0. Vera was totally disappointed by the result of the first set. VIKA has the potential of a tennis champion.
