    Karolina Dumbniacki failing yet again at an impression, this tme at Serena.

    She is a desperate attention seeker.

    I hope Serena hits her FH at about 5% power at her next exo, imitaing Wozniacki, that'd be lol.

    But that's not going to happen because Serena see her as a good friend. Remember Caro visited Serena at her home during her suffering from pulmonary embolism.

    Also, Nole impersonates Sharapova on court and she doesn't take any offense.

    Don't be too sensitive.

    Serena does not need to do that--Wozniacki's overhyped career has been the ultimate shame up to this point. She tries too hard to develop a personality she was not blessed with (on or off court), and seems like a 10 year old screaming for popularity.

    Further, she is supposedly friends with Serena, so there's no harm here other than your ever-true point about Wozniacki's attention seeking issues.

    Bepa Zvonareva has withdrawn from the Aussie due to a right shoulder injury.

    Is someone going to come up with another Sam Stosur winning AO thread like last year?

    Vera's had that same shoulder injury for over a year. Look how long it took Sharapova to get over hers at age 20. Vera's 28 and has been quite the brittle one for many years.

    Seems many of the prominent Russian players have had the injury bug over the years. Petrova, Dementieva, Myskina, Likhotseva, Safina, Sharapova, Zvonareva, Golovin, etc. Makes me even more mad Kuznetsova hasn't been able to do more being healthy for the most part.

    Nice prediction.

    The problem in trying to predict the results of Gen Suck is that they're all a bunch of losers. None of them are the next Serena/Graf/Navratilova/Evert/etc.

    They'll be dominated by Serena until she retires and also dominated by whoever the next GOAT will be.

    She won 2 slams. Considering that is the same as Mauresmo and Pierce who are on the whole better players than her, I would say she did fine.

    The three big hitters are so boring to watch baseline smashing of the ball all the time. I prefer to see some creative play like Maria Kirilenko, great hands good volleyer and strong at the net. She may struggle against the big hitters, but she along with the likes of Aga, Tamira and Zvonareva provide far more entertainment value than Kvitova, Pova and Azerenka. I get way better action photos of players who use all the court. They may not win the majors but they are very entertaining to watch.

    Not really. Safin when he was on was almost unbeatable. Kuznetsova even at her best is still quite beatable. The 2 slams she won she certainly didnt dominate, in fact she should have lost that U.S Open semi to Davenport and French Open quarter to Serena but for Lindsay`s 2nd set injury and Serena`s 3rd set choke from 3-1, 40-15 serving up, and that was with both those ladies in mediocre form those days. Not saying she didnt deserve her 2 slam wins as she definitely did, but that 2 slams is definitely not an underperformance for her compared to others, if anything a slight overperformance. If she somehow ever wins a 3rd slam (highly doubt at this point as she looks way below her 2004-2009 or even 2010-2011 level and not a real contender anymore) she would be the new Capriati, someone with shockingly relatively speaking poor stats in general to ever imagine being a 3 slam winner, yet somehow is.

    You have only described Maria there. Vika and Azarenka both have all court games, and consistently move forward.

    Not sure on Peer. I forgot the last time I saw her play. Does she even care when she plays? Major letdown when she had 3 chances to crack the top 10 a while back.

    I think it was after the olympics where she cited 'injuries' and decided to take the rest of the year off. She seemed fatigued and lost all of her motivation so maybe it was good to take a few months off. I guess we will see in 2013.

    I know Wozniacki is non-factor but lost to Pervak ranked outside the top 100 in Brisbane in 3 sets -- 7-6(1) in the third. Wozniacki well for 2013 is still the same repugnant defensive player that she's always been -- TBH the girl has 0 improvements left in her game, she's really made the best of her extremely limited skills/talent and one ought to admit that she's the worst player to have ever ever ever taken control over the WTA.

    Here's by the way the unique high-light of the match -- a 72h Piotr monologue in which includes mocking Pervak's height and demeaning her daughter from translations I've read here and around. Lol

    Wozniacki started 2012 number 1, and ends s on the verge of leaving the top 10, and a loss to a sub 100 player.

    She needs to spend more time on the courts, and less time courting.

    Yes but even if she did so, what exact improvements does she have left in her game ? Her forehand is just technically so bad that she would need to take like a 6 months or more off the tour to completely break-down her actual motion and rebuild it from scratch.

    Wozniacki has simply made the most out of her game.

    She's tried being offensive and it doesn't work out (she even took beat-downs playing that style against Kerber for example in Stuttgart...) - her results have worsened, she's lost all confidence and her defensive/retrieving game has been figured out since ages. Even if she came back to her old form she'd still be taking defeats as illustrated with Pervak [who isn't the best offensive player out there neither, she made 21 W for something like 60 UE's lol and still won].

    That said, her defending is really back to it's peak IMO compared to her 2012 form.

    Kvitova out to Pavlyuchunky. Maria withdrew. Hantuchova notched a win over Errani. WTA picking up right where it left off.

    I see both as saving themselves from too much wear before the AO, as each realizes the field poses threats so grave, they need to be at 100% efficiency in order to have a chance.
