AO R4: [9] Na li def. [8] Victoria Azarenka 6-3 6-3

The most impressive performance of the tournament by any player. Na wasn't just hitting really cleanly, she was actually using her brain too, loading the shot with topspin whenever it was really deep and using some great angles!

Tremendous tennis, so refreshing to watch.

Australian Open R4: (9) Li Na def (8) Vika Azarenka 6-3 6-3

Badass from Li. Well done.

Vika's serve needs more explosiveness.

AO R4: [9] Na GOAT def [8] Vika Azarenka 6-3 6-3

Na Li defeats Vika Azarenka in straight sets 6-3 6-3!
Her second Quarterfinal at the Australian Open in a row. She's been playing very well lately showing Na-GOAT play rather than Error Na play. She faces the winner of the Petko Masha match.

Re: Australian Open R4: (9) Li Na def (8) Vika Azarenka 6-3 6-3

Loving this result. Gorgeous, controlled aggression from Li Na. Reminiscent of Mary Pierce in '95.
It would make my month if she could win the Aussie Open. The geopolitics of that win would be phenomenal.
And she and her game (as it is now) are quite likable to boot.

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

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Re: AO R4: [9] Na li def [8] Victoria Azarenka 6-3 6-3

Azarenka is so overrated and I will never understand it. Expected. Azarenka has NO ANSWERS to this in her game.

Against top players she gets broken at minimum 2x a set even when playing well.
She's underpowered and gets overwhelmed off the ground.
Her side-to-side movement is not sufficient for someone who has no capacity to dictate points.

I think for the forseeable future Azarenka has maximized her potential as a solid 9-12 player.
She has shown 0 qualities of winning a grand slam at the present time.

Vika didn't play badly, but Na had one of her days. Not much she could really do.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.
