2-2, close to 10 minutes on that game.
As long as Vika keeps holding fairly comfortably and Maria struggles I think she (Maria) will eventually become frustrated and start making more mistakes.

Vika really needs to get aggressive again.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Vika impersonates Caroline

From 40-0 to Deuce...not good.

From 40-0 to Deuce. Well, so much for Vika holding comfortably.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Great last point to squeeze out the hold

I think every game will be as close now..

Whew. Vika holds for 3-2 3rd set at Ad Vika from 40-0 to 40-40. Good scrambling by Vika on her 4th game point to somehow win that point and the game.

Sharapova doing surprising well on her defensive shots today.

A comeon by Sharapova on a missed 2nd serve return by Vika.

Vika supporters don't get to use the eye rolling emoticon to lament when other players display a "bad attitude." Glass houses..

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Generally Azarenka is really serving quite effectively. As long as she keeps this up I can't see her losing.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

It is kind of strange that Maria is only two and a half years older than Vika (Maria was born in January, 1987 and Vika was born in July, 1989).

It's because Sharapova looks older. No idea if it's the hair or her facial features but she could easily pass for 30..imo.
