IW: V Azarenka def D Safina 6-7, 6-1, 6-3

Went from an error-fest in the first set to a display of strong hitting and positive point construction from Victoria.

Dinara's game is just not there. DFs all over the place. Over-hitting. Collapsing from 3-1 up in the 3rd. Seems like she's put all this pressure on herself to back up a great season in 2008. And it's not letting her dig herself out of holes as she used to.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Didn't Safina lead 3-1 in third set?

AMAZE Probably should have been in straight sets though. Vika served for the first set twice I think and still managed to lose it.

Azarenka might be FINALLY breaking through
Everyone's been waiting on her to wake up for like three years now

Dinara was serving *3-1, 30-15. Then hit 2 df's and fell apart. Just awful the last 3 games. She didn't force Vika to go win it.
Vika is definately a future top 5 player

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I brought Wika some good luck as I woke up right when she broke back for *2-3 in the final set. Well done!
Dinara You'll get your top stop anyway... just a few weeks later

Ana Ivanović.

I'm really impressed with Azarenka. I didn't expect her to be able to hold her nrve or for her to be able to constuct points as well as she did when it really mattered.

Dinara's game just has SO many hitches.
