Wow, guys, don't give yourselves heart attacks now.....
Azarenka deserves respect for showing up and playing all the way to defending her title an No. 1ranking, questionable MTO or not. Blame the tour for making the rules so easily taken advantage of.
Compare this to the multitude of whining, self-loathing headcases that comprise the WTA with Masha being the banner-carrier.
There should be more players like Azarenka on the WTA and then people might start viewing it as a legitimate sports tour rather than the soap-opera it usually is.
