Should be easy win for Vika. I don't see what can possibly hurt her in this match.

People will be hyping Sloane now but I reckon Vika will do it in 2.

Azarenka 6-2 6-3. This is not a good match-up for poor Sloane; every single player who beat Azarenka last season had more firepower than her, and Sloane doesn't fit that category.

Sloane has played wonderfully this AO, but I think she's a bit too inexperienced to take out two of the top 3 on back to back days.

Sloane will probably break her serve a couple times, but it'll be mostly one-way traffic for Cakewalk-foo.

I'm really hoping for a repeat of last year's final

This. Vika seems to have the right game to take on Stephens. But Stephens had some impressive moments against Serena so it may be closer than your scoreline.

Vika's gonna win unfortunately. Her endless CC BHs will kill Sloane.

Repeat as in matchup or repeat as in result?

Kidding, I'd like to see it too, I can almost guarantee it will be much closer than 2012 if it happens.

Fine with me . A bit less confident about the outcome this time though.

I mean, yeah. The only way for Maria to beat Azarenka is to play her

Plus it'd be great to see 1 and 2 face off in the final.
