Re: US OPEN 2011 Champ: Viktoria Azarenka
I don't see Azarenka winning a slam on a fast high-bouncing hardcourt. She needs time to set up and time her loopy shots, and doesn't have the strength to be decisive on quick high balls. Speed of court also makes it difficult for her to impose her underpowered grinding game - she's not all that fast of a mover either. The strength of her game - her return - is neutralised on the US courts, while her weakness - the serve - is magnified.
Wozniacki has a much better shot. Bounce of the court helps out her higher rally shots, speed of court allows her to be that bit more aggressive.
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
