Re: R16: [4] Kuznetsova v Azarenka [16]

Azarenka has been torching everyone in her path so far at RG. Kuznetsova is a totally different player from anyone Victoria has faced yet though. Kuznetsova likes to be aggressive, but she knows when she plays someone like Venus, Sharapova, Vaidisova, Safina and Azarenka that she'll need to be a little bit more of a steady counterpuncher than a first strike player.

I wouldn't be surprised if something like Miami happens again-where Azarenka gets on a hot streak in the first set and for the first half of the second set, but then Kuznetsova wears her down to totally turn the match around.

Kuznetsova really is one of the top clay courters, and unless she doesn't play well tomorrow, I think she'll manage to stop Azarenka.

Kuznetsova pretty easily, Azarenka will still be thinking about that Miami match, knowing her...

Re: R16: [4] Kuznetsova v Azarenka [16]

Kuzzie doesn't seem to have too much trouble against Sharapova, so I don't see a reason for her having a problem against Sharapova 2.0 (with updated grunts).

If you keep saying it, maybe you'll start to believe it.

I see no reason why I should hype up some girl whose idea of constructing a point off on clay is hitting the ball as hard as possible.

Kuznetsova has the all court game. She has every shot to pull this girl off the court and finish off points at net.
If she uses it, Azarenka will find herself on the inside looking out.

If she doesn't, she'll find herself out of the tournament for the same reasons as Venus.

I'm sure that Kuzzie will take full advantage of this situation.

And I find it hilarious that it's always the people calling me ignorant but then they say nothing in the thread besides commenting on me.
It's a pussy mechanism. Say something about the thread at hand and then come after me.

I'm shocked at how you think a tied H2H is "not having trouble with" someone.

I'm shocked you can't recognize differences in Azarenka and Sharapova's game.

No wait, I'm not shocked. I should expect it from someone of your intelligence.

Kuznetsova in straights.

Although most people here seem to think Vika is primed for an upset.
