Is Vika a Tennis Cheat ?

Hey, Anyone here seen her semifinal win over rising teenage star Sloan Stephens ? I saw parts of the match but not the last game where Azarenka rushed off the court in a state of panic. Her after match interview at one stage Vika says she thought she was about to have a heart attack. Found this from the american ESPN coverage -

That behavior was pretty lame. As many tennis gurus have said, they really need to look at the "injury" timeout bs. What she did was within the written rules, but wayyyyy out of bounds in the unwritten rules of an athlete.

Victoria Azarenka is either the Lance Armstrong of tennis or a misunderstood aloof player during her interviews. Take your pick :wtf:

I wouldn't put her anywhere near Armstrong status. What she did was just kinda rotten. I understand that gamesmanship is a part of athletics, but this went beyond that. She is too talented a player for that stuff, in my opinion.
