Vika is on fire... she just crushed Stosur 61 62 to win Doha and extend her streak to 17-0. She broke Stosur from 40-00 up to seal the title. ROS was lethal. Nice to have a "real" #1 :)

I'd be shocked if she doesn't withdraw or tank Dubai, though; given that she tweaked her ankle in the semis vs Radwanska.

Roger beat Del Potro to win in Rotterdam. Good week for Delpo, though.

Whee! Milos Raonic wins the SAP Open again in San Jose! :D Beats Denis Istomin to win his THIRD ATP title. Unfortuantely I fell asleep so I missed it but this is fantastic for Milos and he's on to Memphis where he was a finalist last year. Congrats!

Vika! :cheer2: Great to see her carrying this form on.

WD Delpo and Milos too!

Kvitova is out of Dubai with a viral illness.

Maybe it's because I'm home sick that this is causing me great amusement, but Radwanska "angry" at Azarenka (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hZQWYGd7S4BpUs3TgbQOq3bhwAEw?docId=CNG.ebb61 e737ff59f86354987a2da8e6ceb.d1)

The 22-year-old Pole said she was"angry" and had lost respect for the superbly in-form Belarussian, alleging that Azarenka's behaviour in Doha lastweek had not been good for the image of the game.

She replied: "Well, to be honest, I don't think this is worth a comment. But I think after this match....just lost a lot of respect. That's it.
"If you do this in the match, if anyonedidn't see the match, I think it's just aquick look on YouTube and you'll know what was going on," she continued.

Basically, Azarenka tweaked her ankle, but continued playing. Aga alleges Vika was faking, because she was moving fine. Azarenka beat Radwanska 62 64, and then went on to win the title. She then withdrew from Dubai citing the same ankle injury. On the one hand, Azarenka was pretty dramatic over it; on the other she was crushing Aga without needing to resort to a medical time out. The handshake was classic (http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0efT5Y9eM62KY/610x.jpg).

Vika then tweeted this:

victoria azarenka ‏ @vika7 Reply Retweet Favorite Open
just laughing out loud….thats it what i can say….its getting more and more funny…have a good week and enjoy girls

I think Aga is coming across as BITTAH. :shuffle:

Ooooh, petty WTA drama :P I think the whole Radwanska/Wozniacki/Azarenka friendship was kind of doomed to fall apart once one of them started becoming a lot more succesful.

Wozniacki loses to Julia Goerges in the Dubai SF (3rd win over Woz in a row for Jules)

Caro really is struggling.

Caro really is struggling.

I read she only hit 8 winners to Julia's 47...and both players hit tons of UEs as well. Caro is defending Indian Wells, too, and with how she's playing, I can't see her going too far.

Radwanska has lost only to Azarenka so far this season. She's been playing well and she plays a lot...I think she will be top 3 soon.

According to a Polish speaker at tennisforum (I know, I know), this is what Piotr told Caroline during the medical time out:

- you're not thinking at all
- you're standing like a piece of meat
- do not discuss with me
- ending this with: this is pathetic, ****

:scream: :yikes:

02-24-2012, 10:02 PM
Although I take EVERYTHING I read at TF with an enormous pinch of salt, it wouldn't surprise me if that's what Piotr said. The guy's a money-crazed lunatic :rofl: And now that things aren't going so well for Caro, it's pretty plain to see.

02-24-2012, 10:10 PM

There it is.

And this is (apparently) what is being said:

Piotr: you aren't here, you aren't there. those framed balls, no 1st serves in - you know why you don't have them? How could they be if you are not thinking what you are doing. You are standing here like a piece of meat that wants to do something but doesn't know what. (showing with his finger) Why didn't you hit that ball? Because you didn't see it.
Caro: I did see it
Piotr: Don't discuss with me now. This is a complete bullshit/rubbish. Now I will tel you what to do: while serving watch the ball, with new balls go lower on your legs, stand on baseline. She is not running, she is playing you high with backhand. And why you are doing? You are not hitting the ball harder. At her second serve you have to cover the ball (umpire saying time) hit it,and you are (showing it to Caro ) here and here, you are nowhere. Understand? you are nowhere. The racket low, hit with spin, close with elbow. Oh and Carolina, did you play backhand down the line? This is really laughable/pathetic. ****...!

Hey, del Potro wins his 10th title in Marseilles. Good going!
