Brisbane Final - WWW: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

Big fan of both players, but I gotta root for Vika in this one to win her first title - and I think she will in 3 sets.

Thoughts?

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Re: Brisbane Final - WWW: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

Marion vs Vika in a final I love both but my loyalty has to stay with Marion for this one. I desperately want both to win the title though, as Marion has lost her last 3 finals and Vika her last 4.

I think it will come down to what can Vika do to break up Marion. If she goes out there and tries to hit with her, Marion will just say merci beaucoup and send it back harder.

Re: Brisbane Final - WWW: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

definitely azarenka in 3. i just have a feeling.
and from what i've seen, azarenka is the most determined player i've seen in a long time. i hope she gets angry so she can use it to be good.

Re: Brisbane Final - WWW: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

I'm torn. I want them both to win the title.

But I have to root for Marion in this one since I've been a fan of hers longer.

Marion wins this in 3 sets.

However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I don't want to jinx her but I chose Vika. I really want her to win her first title and give Cake a nice beat down

Re: Brisbane Final - WWW: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

Hopefully Vika.

my feeling says Marion in two tight sets but my prediction abilities are pretty hopeless.

this time, i'd like to be wrong though.

to new beginnings.
