WWW US Open QF : Sam Stosur versus HC Genius Victoria Azarenka ?

The H2h is 6-0 and Sammy hasn't taken a single set to Victoria on this surface. Their closest match was Los Angeles 2008 Victoria won 6-4 7-6(4) since then Victoria hasn't lost more than 3 games.

Can't see Sammy giving problems to Victoria in her prime on this surface. A routine win for Victoria though Stosur shouldn't be dissatisfied. She would have made the most out of her difficult draw. Let's do this Vika.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

The only one that can possibly stop Vika this week is Serena, she won't lose to anybody else.

Sharapova could. She plays that court like it is clay. And I´m not completely writting off Stosur either. She seems so at ease with her game at the US Open, when she is not wasting nine matchpoints against Robson.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Sharapova has her hands full getting past Petrova first.

You`re clearly right, they`re both dangerous opponents. But Vika has been so stable so far, just look at today's match. Tatishvilli made her work for it but she still won with a comfortable scoreline, most other players would have at least dropped a set to her.

I really don't see any of these players hurting her this week. Just Serena, because she's the only one who intimidates her.

I agree that their h2h is pretty lopsided but nothing is ever that certain in SEWTA. Sam has had a much tougher draw than Vika and has come through it pretty well.

People didn't think Stosur could beat Williams last year, look how that turned out
Sam will be the under dog, Sam will have the crowd on her side.
Hopefully Sam, but it's going to be a great match either way
