Yes, those are the only two matchups where Vika isn't in control of her own faith.

Peak Wozniacki is the better play than Azarenka.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

Oh Lawd Baby Jesus with all the trolls in this thread.

Vika will lose her number one ranking, most likely to Serena who plays her best in Melbourne. That said, she won't fall out of the top 3 unless she gets really injured and misses a large chunk of the season or Petra gets her shit together. And even if that latter takes place, she's still top 4.

And no one is winning any slams next year if Serena stays on form. Period.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

How can supposed tennis fans still seriously believe Azarenka would struggle with Wozniacki? Since when has Azarenka "not had enough power to blow great movers off the court"? She went 9-0 combined against Radwanska and Kerber this year. In fact, every single loss that Aza suffered this year was when she was overpowered. If you don't best her in the power stakes (and I'm assuming noone believes Woz does that), you don't beat her, simple as that. She's just too consistent to give away the scale of errors that Wozniacki relies on getting from her opponent (and no, two competitive 3-setters they played when Aza was more error-prone than she is now, and when Woz was at her zenith, don't prove anything).

Kvitova is a different matter. I do think Azarenka is unlucky to have not met Kvitova this year because she would've beaten her anywhere but grass.......but, if Kvitova does get her shit together in 2013 as expected, I think she's still pretty much a nightmare match-up for Vika. After all, their YEC meeting in 2011 was on what would probably be Vika's surface of choice in this match-up, a slow hardcourt, and Petra edged her out Though admittedly Vika probably wasn't *quite* as good in that match as she was for most of 2012. We'll see.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

The Vika-petra match-up is pretty clear, we all know what happens once Petra gets on a roll. No one except Serena can stop her atleast on grass and indoors. On outdoor hardcourts/medium-pace, it's a different story. Petra needs almost perfect conditions in order to play her game, if not she does not have the patience or athletic ability to stay with Azarenka. If she loses about 20 pounds and strengthens her core than maybe we can talk.

That myth needs to die. Sharapova on indoors already did stop Kvitova and can certainly do it again, the generation suck would be useless though I agree on that.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Victoria Azarenka

I think Azarenka will perform 50/50 ...she needs to stay fit and motivated, but there's the pressure of being #1 by tryna stay on top could result in meltdowns where she pushes herself beyond = physical & mental burn out. She's too good of a player to drop outta top 10, there aren't enough girls outthere atm who are better or equal to her other than Serena, Maria, & Petra!

Her 1st challenge is to DEFEND HER AUSSIE OPEN title ....You're not a true champion until you defend ...Ivanovic, Schiavone, Petra, Li Na all failed to defend their slam titles, actually went into funk after failing to defend ....the last players to defend their slam titles were Serena Wimby 2010 & Clijsters USO2010. Can Azarenka do it??

But neither Clijsters or Serena defended their first slam title.

Serena is more likely to fall out of top 10 than Vika.

In 2012 Petra Kvitova´s last 10 matches from US Open to Fed Cup finals brought her 5 wins (Hercog, Cornet, Parmentier, Hantuchova & Jankovic) and 5 losses (Bartoli, Martic, Suarez Navarro, A. Radwanska & Ivanovic). Not very promising for her.
