    I didn't make any comments about either Serena or Azarenka's appearance, so your comment makes no sense. The real lowlifes are people who like to lecture others on an anonymous internet forum.

    Close first set, and some good play. Until the second break in the second, the match was fairly close, but it just hasn't been THAT exciting. Don't know why, something is missing.

    what I'm saying is that many of the players are ridiculed, chastised for their looks! not just Serena and not just the women!

    pay attention.

    Wow Azarenka. Hard to see how she'll win now. Finally had to mute the TV too. That hooting is just nuts.

    Isnt it obvious why not. The conditions are terrible for tennis. Both players are doing a good job adjusting considering, but for Azarenka the frusteration of the early missed chances and the conditions combined became too much just now.

    then why watch at all.......you tennis snobs think nadal and joker play any better. those golden retrievers will play a 5 hour 3 set match of baseline ballbashing. at least vika plays with variety unlike rafa. and serena isn't a choking brat when the crowd roots against her like djoker. god i miss fed.

    You're all missing my point. At the end of the day I'm just telling everyone to shut up about it. I'm not trying to defend the honour of every tennis player who is ridiculed. Their fame, accomplishments and wealth speaks for itself. I'm just tired of reading it in every other post, that's all.

    Why do you only get mad when a WTA player gets critcized? I remember you were equally fired up during Wimbledon when people called Bartoli fat. I guess all those rude comments about Murray's ugly teeth and his girlfriend only being with him because of his money didn't offend you?

    You should not let one match form that kind of opinion. Azarenka is a fierce competitor, and unlike others in her generation (talentless Woznoacki, overrated Radwanska, et al), she's already made a breakthrough at the majors.

    She's here for a reason.

    Azarenka breaks back. Let's see how close she can keep this set.

    Azarenka not covering her right far court. Several DTL and CC winners for Serena in that corner.

    People who think Djokovic and Nadal are better than Azarenka are snobs now? Really? If you think Djokovic/Nadal have no variety and are just ballbashers, you clearly don't watch their matches.

    Listen all you people who disagree with my posts:

    I truly despise you.

    'If you ever see me walking down the hall, look the other way because you're out of control, you're out of control.

    'You're totally out of control. You're a hater and you're just unattractive inside.

    'Who would do such a thing? And I never complain. Wow. What a loser.

    'You get a code violation because I express who I am. We're in America last I checked.

    'Can I get a water? Or am I going to get violated for a water?

    'Really, don't even look at me. I promise you don't look at me because I am not... Don't look my way.'

    Thank you Serena for helping express the way I feel. LOL

    Just because Serena was ranked higher than Pete-and, btw, why don't you provide the link for that poll-it's not definitive, nor does it mean that she is the GOAT(for that matter, Pete isn't universally regarded as the GOAT either), so, once again, your point is dumb. How many easy shots can she miss? Did you start following tennis an hour ago, ALL players miss easy shots, hell, Nle is the world's Number One, and these days when he sets up for an overhead, I hold my breath. You still haven't answered how she could have accomplished what she has-especially lately, as in, oldest player in history to be ranked Number One-and be a "choker. ALL players choke, but the great ones do it less than others, and her record says it all. you're just bitter your choices can't beat her, DEAL with it...

    Ain't that a trip? I wish I had a dollar for every time I've seen "A" insult the intelligence of "B" and misspell a simple word-often, as in this case, the key insulting word-about their intelligence.

    We agree, Serena is definitely not GOAT! There really never was a disagreement here.

    you mean they play tennis in between djoker's ball bouncing,nadal's wedgie pulling and their other forms of time wasting?

    Serena should have won the second set 6-0. What a choker. Vika has no serve and Serena has the best serve ever, how does it get to this point. Answer. Serena chokes and Azarenka looks better than she is

    I said, she's not the GOAT yet, and you're so busy lying-where's that link on the Sampras poll, btw-you can't keep your lies straight: first you say, GOAT never complain-already a lie-and when I mention players who complained a lot, you say, they don't count, they're not the GOAT like Serena is. But now, suddenly,she's NOT he GOAT! So,what, exactly is your point? You don't have one...

    Why do I have this gut feeling that Azarenka will come up with the break here to stave off elimination? I feel like she's got it in her and Serena might get a bit tight.

    Azeranka really has earned even more of my respect!

    she would be truly world class, and not just in this weak women's era but any era, if she further improves her right side (serve and FH) and increases her foot speed...

    Come on this is pathetic, Azarenka has held serve 3 times the entire tournament and Serena can barely win the match.

    You're hilarious, twisting yourself into knots. DID she win the first set? Oh, she did? Then, yet again, you're making a fool of yourself.

    Serena had a rough day at the net 2/7, but her stats are extremely solid. Almost doubled Azarenka's winner count.

    Knew it. Although Azarenka didn't really have to come up with anything clutch. Serena helped her out with the errors.
