Never much liked Azarenka. Always found her screeching really off-putting for starters. I was maybe coming to appreciate her more as a player in the last year as she developed. And she seems nice off court.
But today's episode just adds to a catalogue of PR disasters for her in the last few weeks (remember the pedicure excuse). That to me looked like gamesmanship yesterday. She maybe misheard the question about her MTO in the on-court post-match interview but the crowd were clearly having none of it and maintained a stony silence followed by polite applause.
Li Na on the other hand is doing everything right. She's playing well and she's engaging the spectators with her personality in the interviews. It's excellent news for the WTA, who are investing so heavily in East Asia, that Li has made it to another final. I think the crowd will be really behind her. I hope she can take the title.
