I will say this however, I have never been an Azarenka fan but she is starting to win me over because of her winning at all cost attitude. She had everything going against her at the AO but she managed to find the strength to pull off a win. Now in Doha, she came out and competed aggressively against Serena and pulled it off, something Sharapova has not been able to do to Serena in nine years!
point1- i'll say this when she shows up(both literally and figuratively) she gives serena a fight.....which can lead to a great rivalry which is great for tennis.
point2- i give her this- she is no joke #1. she seems to have embraced being at the top. and she seems to be working on her game...
