Azarenka wins OZ open
January 26, 2013, 20:35:18

 Showing huge courage Azarenka fought back from a set down to win the Oz open. The biased Oz crowd showing a bad lack of sportmanship was on Vika's case. Their press had torn in to her because of her medical time out. This dispite her limping very badly earlier  and having a doctor allow the time off.

The oz crowd were clearly sucking up to the chinese as hard as they could. all they can see is big sponsorship bucks!

Li Na played very  well but had to have two medical breaks. The crowd would have loved her too win. Li is the big boss in her home. He husband is truly under her thumb. he practices with her, and does all the fetching and carrying. He admits she is very much the boss at home.  A classic hen peck husband.  I guess that is how Oz oaks like their women?

Li Na embarrases and humiliates her husband when ever he comes up in an interview. But the oz crowd loves her. Strange people these oz oaks. nz oaks are probbly the same  I suppose?

Azarenka is a down to earth bubbly young women who showed plenty of  guts to win in partisan environment. Why the oz dont like her and adore Li Na is a mystery.

Li Na showed lots of skill and courage but to no avail.

 Couldn't agree more about Azarenka. The kid was probably stretching the rules in her semi. But Serena Williams has been guilty of gamesmanship many times, even in her match with young Stevens. Tactical time outs are part of modern tennis

 

Following the lead of their own gutter press, Azarenka was jeered when she questioned a call against Na and cheered when she double faulted. The Aussies make a huge thing about sportsmanship, but they broke their own rules. I have never seen such hostility towards a tennis player. The Aussie tag of the friendly slam is gone.

 

Say what you like about the Poms, such poor sportsmanship would never have happened at Wimbledon.

 

Azarenka is just a young girl, but she showed stupendous guts out there. As did Li Na on her injured ankle.

 

The crowd didn't deserve this final.

Bean Brain cheating might be acceptable in yr neck of the woods given the fining and suspension of yr cricket captain for cheating and yr country being synonmous with corruption so not suprised you describing Azarenka as courageous given your perverted value system.

 But choking (  and I know you as a Stormer supporter are perfectly familiar with this concept) is only a medical emergency if there's something obstructing your airway, not if you can't close out a tennis match because of nerves.

Azwrenka 's excuse for taking a time out in her own words was because "she did'nt want to lose" and only later amended to "back problems" then breathing problems after realising she was being ex[posed as a dirty little cheat.

 Showing such dishonesty and lack of integrity it is then completely understandable the crowds hostility towards such a blatant cheat.

The woman is a joke and not suprising she dates a dude from the band LMFAO.

 You obviously never watched the Serena Williams game.....where she could hardly walk at one instant, but was running down wide balls the next. They all do it .....Azarenka's problem was she provided too much information.

 

But Chris Evert, as straight a competitor who ever played the game deplored the crowd's behavior. 

 

No worries for Azarenko though, she's won the damn thing twice....some joke hey?

Two wrongs don't make a right in my book and when you say she provided too much information you mean she admitted to being a cheat and should of kept her mouth shut instead.

Azarenka, is a role model for young tennis players. So teaching them how to cheat has just corrupted a generation of up and coming players and brought the game into disrepute. Dunno whats worse.

 Therefore she should be stripped of her title, forfeit any prizemoney, then she should be horsewhipped and banned from the game.

I was once watching the Memorial at Muirfield Village.  Payne Stewart hit his ball in the right rough on one of the closing holes. Trees impeded his swing, but his feet were in casual water. He got a drop, but still couldn't swing. So he  turned around left handed and found his feet still in water....so he got another drop. By then he had a clear shot to the green and his playing partner, Tom Kite,  walked away in disgust, saying he couldn't believe the ruling.

 

That's professional sport. Cricket is no better . It's a reflection of society. Don't get me wrong, it was a regrettable incident in the Stevens match and a blemish on Azarenka's tournament. But I hardly think the hostility to a 23 year old girl was appropriate and consistent with good sportsmanship.

 

But I gather you whip young girls when they don't conform? Let me guess, you aren't a big success with the fairer set.

 

I did enjoy Shane Warne's one handed catch in the Federer match though.

We don't whip girls when they don't conform but Azarenka is not a young girl. She's a young women so qualifies in this case. Obviously yr too accustomed to justifying the despicable behaviour of sports people given all the eye gouging, head butting, hair pulling ( thats just the Stormers) and flying elbows we see coming from yr sportsmen.

BTW How much was the match fees that yr cricketers were fined for cheating the other day. Some are saying 10grand each. Would be interested to know.

To say it's okay cause everyone does it makes you sound like Lance Armstrong and we all know what a  snivelling, lying, cheating little wretch he is.

But you whip women.....or do you prefer using the cudgel?  All this puffed up righteousness! Surely the Andrew Hore incident, in my view the worst of 2012, has given you pause. Or are you still buying all that garbage your press gives you, that the ABs are angels and the Boks are thugs?

Certainly would in Azarankas case just for all the ridiculous pig squealing . Honestly don't know how anyone can watch womens tennis with all that fken screaming going on. Bean Brain's probably gunna tell me it sounds orgasmic and thats the only reason he watches tennis ibet.

 Not sure what a cudgel is  - sounds like another reference to golf pehaps which is not even a sport i might add. What would you use that for?   Is it a bedroom accesory or something?

Brycy

Calm down my friend.

I am not a great watcher of women tennis - but you could laways be sure to find me watching when Steffi Graff or Gabrielle Sabatini played and I am an absolute watcher whenever "Legs and Tits"  Sharapova plays.   Maybe I am looking more at the legs and tits  issue in thoise cases than is really appropriate.

After all - there could be arguments of whether Graff was the best female tenni player ever - but there can never be an argument about whether she had the best legs of any female tennis player.   Sabatini was an absolute beauty and there can be no argument as to Sharapova's "assets'.  LOL

Hi there brycy (Named afte bryc larence !!!)my good friend getting a bit uptight again - allow me to assist you to reach greater hights.

There are a number o fthings to consider. Firstly take the words of Li Na who didnt appear to find what happened a problem. She said only the palyer knows her state and further that a doctor has to sanction the time out. If you know your tennis it was clear something was not right. A few games earlier she had been limping badly and had grimaced more than once.  There appeared to be genuine concern.

Also there have been a number of time outs etc. Why the over reaction to this one one wonders. A time out can work either way also brycy. 

Now look a tthe final. Azarenka had to dea lwith two time outs. Each time Li Na came back as if nothing had happened.  Its a thing a player has to dea lwith Ni La dealt withth times outs ver ywell and possibly better than Azarenka.

The Oz oaks have been congratualting themselves on how wonderful they ar but to bring them down to some reality I note that the womens final was interrupted for 10 minutes for a fire works display!!!! (Thi sfrom the oka swh owre slamming Azarenka for a 9 minut emedical time out authorised by a doctor!!!) 

This is an international event and the world has little interest in australai day so I suggest they get over themselves. Also I do suggest that they get some air conditioning going. One wants to see who the best players are - not who best survives searing heat - a fatally is bound to happen one day.

One also noticed that guys palying a five setter in the latter part o fthe tournament were sunk. Giles Simon, Federer and Murray. Murray was the more fortunate in having 2 days rest but clearly he was not physically right. Not saying he would have beaten Doks but the playing fields were not level. Somehow there needs to be a rule that if you play a five setter you get two days at least. Try and improve the scheduling

But I do notice my comments about Li Na giving poor old Denis a hard time was not answered. Poor guy is there simply to fetch and carry. Maybe its a Chinese sense of humoir but she does denigrate her husband. Anyhow it clearly appeal to the oaks down under!

On the other side we have the charming bubbly down to earth Azarenka. No mailce or guile there. Well done Vika you are a true champion.

Oz need to apologise to Vika for their uncouth behaviour.  Fair go mate etc!

Congrats of course to Doks who after his usual slow start saw off moooorie with increasing ease. The man seems set to dominate 2013. He gets better as games get longer.

Not much between him and Murray as players tecnically and ability wise. But Doks appears better mentally and as far as fitness is concerned.

My man Federer is not out of it yet with Wimbledon being his best bet  - faster surface. Maybe he has a chance at Roland Garos if Nadal is still not back to form

Bean Brain why do you keep backing losers all the time.? 

Azarenka is another one to add to yr list as the self confessed cheat will be associated with cheating for the rest of her playing days.

  Why is that you ask?

Well because she admitted to it ?

You must've missed that bit i think. 

She wore headphones to the final because she knew she was going to be booed for cheating.

 No real difference between Azarenka and Lance Armstrong - both cheats and both cheated their way to titles.

What message does that send to up and coming young tennis players?

Basic behavioural psychology tells us behaviour that is rewarded is repeated as Armstrong has shown us so expect more of the same from her i guess.

brcy  ya nutter Azarenka misunderstood the question as she expalined. THis left more egg on low brwo oz critics. OZ wil ljust have t oaccept they embarrassed themselves on thre wolrd stage sucking up a shard a they can to the States and China.  THeir behaviour towards young Vika wa disgsuting and at the ned they were red faced and rightly so.

Now as fo ryou talking about cheating brycy well we all know your rediculous take on bryce lawrence  -boote doff the elite refs panel but mad nz ref of th eeyar Bwahahahahahahahahhaha please brycy any foray of yours into the wold of ethics is doomed! You clealry lack consistency.

Its like when you are calling for cricket to be stopped being played in nz and then the black caps win a few ODI games and you are trumpeting their success. Hhahahahahahahahahahaha - no consistency brycy. a fair weather friend.

No hands of Vikdea the OZ open CHAMPION for a second consecutive year and already a fabulously weathy and successful young women even if she never wins another tennis match - which is not likely now is it brycy.

Beeno has ou brycy all sussed out.  

One can only hope the uncouth ozzies have learnt a lesson and will eventually admit their behaviour was boorish in the extreme. They must also realise their national day means zip to the international communty  - oh the arrogance of it all! 

Again the silence as why Li Na is so popular with the down under types given her repeated humiliation of her hen pecked husband who is there to fetch and carry for her highness. Does she represent the modern down under women perhaps? What ou brycy aspires to? Hahahahahahahahahaha

Its all a mystery to us.

RE: Azarenka wins OZ open

here i ssome info tha tmay help the one eyed brycy and his very unsporting oz friends realsie what twits they hav been

In post-match interviews the world No.1 twice blamed breathing difficulties that felt like a heart attack for leaving the court during a 6-1 6-4 win over Stephens, but by the time she faced the media over an hour later a mysterious back and rib issue were the source of her pain.

David Nainkin, the coach of Stephens, said Azarenka acted against the spirit of tennis.

"I thought it was very unfair - cheating within the rules," Nainkin told USA Today. (how do you cheat within the rules?)

"It was unsportsmanlike (What i sshocking Nannykin is your unfounded slur on Azarenka's character!!!). I don't think you should be able to leave the court before the opponent serves for 10 minutes for whatever reason. (Oh you dont - so because you dont agreee with the rules Azarenka is unsporting - wha ta clown! - Ho wabout th eoz fireworks dispaly - Bwahahahahahahahahaha)

"You'd better have something pretty good. I think there's a grey area in the rule book that shouldn't be allowed. End of story." 9This is amixed up turkey!)

Azarenka said the issue flared two days ago and had returned a few games before she called for the doctor after failing to serve out the match at 5-3.

"I cannot control how long it takes to fix my injury," Azarenka said. (Tell the buffoon Vika)

"I just regret that I didn't take it earlier.

"There was a little bit of my bad (Note brycy English is not Vika's first language). But just a rib got locked and kept getting worse. I had to have it adjusted. (Please note brycy - everything consitent)

"I'm telling you what happened right now honestly, that my back was bothering me.

"It took me too long to call the trainer, which was my mistake. I took it to the point where I couldn't breathe.

"When I play and somebody takes a medical timeout, I don't doubt them." (To the pure all things are pure but not to some oz types and an nz oak!!)

It was the decision of the tournament doctor to take Azarenka off court
, but the 10-minute treatment equated to two medical timeouts as her knee was also assessed from a fall in the third game of the second set. (We all saw her hopping on one leg and one wondered if she would continue)

Azarenka did not deny her initial claims of choking and the onset of panic, but insisted there was a genuine physical ailment behind her obvious psychological failure.(She is a patently honest young women - doesnt even think of lying)

"When you cannot breathe you start to panic," she said.

"I was really panicking, not because I couldn't convert my match point. That's not the case, I'm experienced enough to go over those emotions.

"But when you cannot breathe, when something's really blocking you, the stress, that was the stress I was talking about. I just couldn't realise what was going on with me.

"I couldn't breathe, I couldn't swing. I think it was pretty obvious that my shots were a little bit different.
Azarenka (
One coul deasily see something was wrong)

"It was just so stressing me out the pain that I had that you know, maybe it was overreaction, but I just really couldn't breathe."

Azarenka closed out the match on the Stephens serve with her first opportunity, capping a remarkable recovery, but it left a sour taste in many mouths.

To her credit, 19-year-old Stephens refuse to criticise Azarenka and actually wished the world No.1 would win tomorrow's final against Li Na.

Stephens admitted she wouldn't even know how to call a medical time out and when told it was a breathing issue she said: "You just get an oxygen tank or something.

"If it was one of my friends I would say, 'Oh my god that sounds like a PP,' which is a personal problem," Stephens said.

"I love Vica and we share the same agent. We actually are pretty good friends. I'm sure I will see her and we'll talk about it. (hardly the words of someone who feels grieviously hard done by!!!!)

"I hope she wins the final, so I hope if that's the case she should figure it out, something, get it together."

This teenager showed more decency and maturity than ou brycy and his howling hounds

Away with ou brycy and his ilk with all their vain pretences to ethical behaviour! No more throwing stones at Vika.

Man did she get the last laugh. Fancy having the grace to wish these oz whingers well for oz day which caused a 10 minute disruption in her finals match. Hahahaahahhahahahahaha - they have no idea how arrogant they were! When ever has a grandsalm final ever been interrupted by a  fireworks display!!!!! And these twits complain that Vika has a medical time out authorised by a doctor, with visible evidence of at least the knee problem and all within the rules of the game!! Nannkin should abjectly apologise. Stevens should have a straight word with her coach and set him staright.

Hahahahhahahahahahahahaha the down under types sure came cropper there. Bad sportmanship and not knowing the rules etc. Huge egg on Oz journos and gullible fans.

 Bean Brain yr wasting yr breath whinging about NZ refs to Kiwis when we grew upwitnessing SA refs that similarly to Azarenka admit to cheating but their excuse was 'because they have to live in South Africa".

 But Bean Brain your reaction to Azarenka is perfectly natural though for someone growing up in a segregated society for the Caucasian to be superior to the Chinese and African american. Something to do with a misguided notion of cultural superiority.

The American that took out Williams whats her name was the better player at the end of the day and deserved to win. Anyone that follows tennis is embarrassed by the whole affair and admit it's a very sad day for tennis.

....And Bean Brain I still hate cricket  i was just trumperting yr demise..Much more fun ....after all that chest beating about the World Champions only for them to lose a historic series at home LMAO.

Sorry to pop yr bubble Bean Brain .

Brycy keeping it real.

Although many down under folk sfailed to show the decency o fSloane Stevens som were fair minded enough to give Vika a fair deal.

  • Simon A of Canberra says… January 25, 2013 at 8:54 AM
So you can cheat but still be in the rules? Well um thats not cheating then is it.
  • Jacki Babbs of Australia says… January 25, 2013 at 9:16 AM
An American on the losing side complaining the opposition cheated. There's a surprise. It wasn't even close Go Victoria
  • Mik T of Canberra says… January 25, 2013 at 9:21 AM
Why do you have to separate breething difficulties from chest pain. Isn't it the matter of cause and consequence? Victoria has won fair and square. Sloane didn't really have a chance. Media just looking for sensation and didn't get it. Agree that grey areas should be avoided. For that you could legitimise timeouts as in other sports so player can take it whenever they are entitled to regardless how they explain it. They are not politicians. Also I don't think it would be better outcome if any player defaults due to medical condition instead the skills contest that any true tennis fan would like to see.
Ah that rare find a fair minded down undr type - reminds me of that great man Marshall.

Well brcy the old race card pulled out but in vain.

If you look I praise Stevens for her graciousness. She says she love Vika and Vika is a lovely bubbly young woman so that is understandable.

Oh if only brycy would follow Stevens example of decency!

A for Stevens winning the game or having the better of it - well brycy she did lose the first set 6-1 and Vika was romping home in the second before various injuries caught up with her - starting with the very visible knee injury.

No Stevens is a fine young player but no ways would she have won this match. Neither would she have beaten a fit Serena.

Beeno keeping it real.

You still have not commented on why you love Li Na so much!    Bwahahahahahaha

Bean Brain i think it was Bob Marley who sung - if the cap fits...let him wear it ....you crazy bald head...

Obviously you've been doing some cherry picking when it comes to comments on this travesty of justice given i've got you on the back foot and you've found all the ones favourable to Azarenka - which we can count on only one hand so not very convincing mate..

Stevens deserved to win no question and deserves a medal for being so gracious about Azarenkas cheating but she was only being polite. A concept you probably would'nt be familiar with Bean Brain.

 Azarenka is a cold calculating manipulative little wench. Did you see what she did when Li Na bashed her head on the court. Could've at least gone up to see if she was okay don't you think.? That would have been a more sportsmanlike thing to do. Cold as ice.
