There's no way Azarenka is losing this.

Azarenka.

Sloane played good today but let's not pretend Serena was anywhere near her recent form.

Vika will destroy her. Serena was the only one in her way to a final, she's not losing to anyone now!

Sloane might as well make the final now.

Re: WWW Australian Open SF: [1]Victoria Azarenka vs [29]Sloane Stephens

One of my two favorites in the AO final

Honestly, I only became a fan of Sloane during last year's clay season. I had no idea that she would already be in this position

I think Vika will win though... she looked more inspired and motivated in today's match than in previous matches.

I'll of course be rooting for Vika.. but what a dream match

Please, Vika.

Re: WWW Australian Open SF: [1]Victoria Azarenka vs [29]Sloane Stephens

The only comparable match stylistically I can think of is Stephens/Petkovic. That was a long time ago, but Stephens struggled to keep up with the consistent hard hitting and lost something like 2-6 2-6. Nevertheless she has nothing to lose in the semifinal and these 900 points will go a long way of putting her into the top 10 this year.

- 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.

The only reason Sloane made it to Vika is because Serena is injured. Vika will have the eye of the tiger. If Sloane proves me wrong I will support her for the remainder of the tournament.

Most likely Vika, even though she's been dirt this tournament.

I would be surprise if Sloane even take a set against Vika. I hope she doesn't have the let down that usually comes after such a big win.
