Aussie Open Quarter-Final: Vika Azarenka defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5 6-1

Thank you Vika!! Great warm up match to get ready for the semis

That first set was amazing and was a breath of fresh air for womens tennis

Great tournament for Sveta and she'll certainly be back competing with the best on a more consistent basis

Thank you Vika

First set was filled with long games, Vika stepped it up towards the end. Came back from 1-4 down.

End of the line in the SF but SF

Got a headache watching Sveta waste chances! Get your crap together, girl.


I cheer on scrubs.

Vika really stepped up her level at end of 1st set
some great play from both

Sveta was on fire at start of match

Neither were impressive.
Hope Sveta builds on this but Vika will really need to up it.

Yuryevna,
Always

Yep, Sveta is back alright Typical 4-1 brain fart but a good tournament nevertheless. Vika just too solid in the end.

I don't think Serena has too much to worry about though.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

People who thought Sveta would win.

People who thought Vika is a pusher.

Good stuff. Won't make it past the SF but still a decent result.

Sveta Great to have her back in the latter stages of a slam. She played great in that first set.

Rest up for the SF (and cheer your ass off for Sloane)

Annoying.

Well done to Azarenka. She stepped it when she needed to.

I don't think this means Sveta is "back" though. So many parts of her game have deteriorated.

Sveta should be a factor in the clay season if she keeps improving
