WWW YEC White Group: [4] Victoria Azarenka vs [7] Sam Stosur?

Vika plays her first match here, Sam her second after beating Sharapova. H2H 4-0 to Snickers without losing a set.

Prior to this tournament many people were saying, Sam would never beat Pova but would be able to beat Vika. I disagree, I think it's the other way around (I actually also thought Sam would never beat Pova...nor that she would ever beat Vika). Sam has beaten Pova, largely because the latter couldn't deal with her serve and slice at all (due to being rusty). Azarenka will have none of that, she'll redirect her BH slice junk and kicker at will + is in much better form coming into this tournament in comparison to Pova.

Vote + discuss.

Stosur in 3.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Vika will be another story for Stosur... Vika doesn't give as much as Maria from the back court and second of all Vika's consistent aggressive returns a contrario to Maria's aggressive but risky if not very risky ones should really give Sam a different look... we'll see.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Vika is not having any of of Stosur's serves, she'll send it right back to her.

It feels like anything can happen now But Vika seems to be in good form so it will be presumably much more difficult for Sam to deal with her. I think Vika will prevail.

Re: WWW YEC White Group: [4] Victoria Azarenka vs [7] Sam Stosur?

This is a tough one to call. I never really understand why Azarenka was such a tough matchup for Stosur to the extent that I understand why Sharapova was. I also have only seen one of their matches. Stosur will be feeling very confident after beating her nemisis Sharapova in straight sets, and is not likely to have any mental trepidation of this matchup anymore (if she ever did). Still Azarenka is playing well now and will probably feel like she can go 3-0 in this group now.

Still Sam in 3 I guess.

Well...I was wrong in the last poll (Sharapova vs Stosur with Stosur in 3). This time I would say Sam in 2 - 6:1 7:5
