Wow, I didn't realise that Azarenka had such a dominant head to head with Stosur. 6-0 with none of the matches going to three sets and only one of them being competitive (Los Angeles, 2008 6-4 7-6). In their other five matches Azarenka won sixty games and Stosur won fourteen. I was hoping for a competitive match today but given their previous meetings that seems unlikely. Still, Sam did finally defeat Maria at the YEC last year so she could give Vika a tough match.
Bartoli/Sharapova...eh, I really wanted to see Petra and Maria, I don't think this match will be very good.
Stosur also served for the match at 5-4 2nd set in the quarters of Stuttgart this year. Stosur hadn't faced a break point in that prior to serving for the match.
Well you did get your wish. I kind of thought the Vika/Stosur match would be a lot tougher than most of their matches but I certainly didn't think there'd a 3rd set tiebreak. I wonder what effect this match will have on future matchups between these two.
