WWW Beijing SF: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

H2H 7-3 Azarenka

But Marion has beaten Vika 2 out of the past 3 times. She also stopped Vika's 26 match winning streak in Miami QF's.

Based on their current form, you'd have to say Vika in 2, but Marion is generally a dark horse in big matches and we know she is capable of an upset.

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

Azarenka in 2. Vika was dead tired in Miami and was trying to lose in Istanbul. Marion also looked pretty sketchy today. Would be surprised at anything other than a routine Vika win.

H2H is 8(!)-3. And it means Bartoli is Vika's punchbag. But nice try though ...

Had to check the head to head as sure Cake was still Vika's punchbag. She is, Vika leads 8-3

Re: WWW Beijing SF: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

Vika has been pretty solid all tournament (played a very good match today), so she's the safe, likely pick here. 2 tight sets.
oh yeah i guess is offline

Vengeance is due

Their YEC match is still one of my most-watched matches...pure gold. You don't often see pro tennis players being angry and pissed after hitting winners

Re: WWW Beijing SF: Azarenka vs. Bartoli

As usual Im just hoping it isnt a big beatdown. Court is a bit fast so heres hoping Marion hits it well tomorrow.
