She did hit a slum after her FO win but she is with a new coach now and u can already see the results. She has been extremely consistent and that's how she beat Masha like it's a 2nd round match. It was unfortunate she rolled her ankle not once but twice. The Mto's along with the firework gave Vika a lot of time to recompose. She even got extra time to work on her serve. You don't think that plays in a big factor how she lost?
I do agree her service game was no up to par in the final. But Vika was nervous as well. She will get better mentally with the new coach. This is only the begginning of the year! If she stays healthy she will play for another final again real soon. Like in FO.
