When will Choke Na finally end.
Who can hold serve anymore? Forgetaboutiiiiiit
Is that what I said? I said 'suffering'. She wasn't nervous, it appears she was suffering with anxiety of some kind, panic attack perhaps. The doctors, who were there, said she did the right thing. But you, who weren't, and (I'm assuming) are vastly less qualified medically, have declared without doubt that she didn't.
That's an impressive view of your own opinion.
Li needs to move Azarenka around, she's doing a lot of running so far.
Azarenka's tactic of 'no power, no angle' is unnerving Li at the moment.
Lets see if Li is mature enought shake it off.
. . . . .
Yes,, that's it.
That's how to handle the pusher, Li !!
Keep going at it.
More DF cheering. Ridiculous
BP Li after a DF..... nice serve to get back to deuce.
An anxiety or panic attack is still mental. An MTO is only allowed for physical injuries. You can't combine 2 MTO's, but you know that right? Yet she was allowed to do so by a stupid umpire.
If someone was paranoid and started imagining things, doctors would call that a medical condition. You can't take an MTO for that. And it was obvious Vika was lying.
Li's lob went long. Ad Azarenka and she holds for 2-0.
Great winner from the game from Vika.
Vika consolidates 2-0.
Humm... no good for Li Na. She must hold!
Error Na.... ugh!
Azarenka will be the most unpopular winner ever if she wins this. The Australian crowd is too goo to boor. Just clap quietly while Azarenka misunderstands another interview question.
“No extra time shall be given to allow a player to recover condition. However, a player suffering from a treatable medical condition may be allowed one medical time-out of three minutes for the treatment of that medical condition.”
How do you treat anxiety? Anxiety pills? Tape? or a good slap in the face.
This must not go to 3 sets!
Well, classless behavior from AO audiences is not new.
Regarding the match: there's still two sets left to be played, and for all of the sociopathic behavior on this board about Azarenka, they forget one, lovely thought: she's young, hungry, strong and will be on tour for many years to come. As a self-interesed player, she's won a major and has tasted that success; she does not appear to be of the Vaidisova mind (reitre early for no good reason) or a "shrinking violet"/headcase like Kvitova.
On the other hand, Na will be 31 this year, and as very late bloomer (barely winning a major in 2011), no one should expect her to be cutting through the field for the remainder of this decade. So, for those with some irrational hatred of Azarenka...you better pull up a chair and enjoy the ride, because she will be around.
BP for Azarenka... Li's been struggling since the end of the 1st set.
Azarenka breaks for 3-0. Azarenka has won 5 of the last 6 games.
Vicky has woken up. Li has fallen asleep.
Bottom line: doctors said she was right to take it. If the umpire got it wrong you should be mad at the umpire.
If player serves a foot fault, you don't call the player a cheater, you would be disappointed with the line judge.
Damn it! 2nd set is going to be Vika's. And Li Na is in trouble.
Maybe the above, but more likely a period of time out of the situation causing distress, and some deep breathing!
Vika has changed her tactic now.
She gave up on her normal game as it was brutally destroyed every time.
She is basically pushing and moving Li around.
2 BP for Li.... and she breaks.
Within a year she will be bored with this ugly clown and dump him.
1 break back. Still a lot of work to be done by Na.
Yes,, that's it Li.
Controlled aggression to neutralize moonballing and pushing.
. . . . .
Vika loves a moonball
He's also way older than her. He's 37.
keep applying controlled agression.
don't be a hater just because you can't play tennis and your too unattractive to be able to pull anything of decent quality.
looks like Li finally figured it out here..
MTO Li. Damnnnnnnnnnnnn
Oh my...Li injured. Ankle problem. Sigh.
MTO for Li? Nasty fall there.
oh, nooooooooo !
Now THAT calls for a MTO.
Well this sucks.....
Hope she can bounce back and it isn't too much of an issue.
She wants to be some kind of recording star for her next trick, and he's one of Berry Gordy's sons. So actually, I don't think so.
In not watching at the moment. What's going on?
Girl is cooked now, just yesterday she said, about MTO's, "You know, everyone is different. Because for me, I would never use that."
Sorry, but that was a ridiculous thing to say.
She doesn't seem too nervous.
Tweaked her ankle on a quick change in direction, MTO right now.
This final is Vika's. I don't think Li can bounce back.
The Owl may luck out today.
