Sorry for the delay in this report (I could not find this thread):
I was at the match against Glatch in the Open final. I am glad that I caught it. Had never seen Vika before. What a player. Glatch has been hyped up by the American Press and is pretty good.
But ... Azarenka was just better. A lot better. She really smokes the ball. Powers it where she wants it to go. And a very hungry player. Every missed shot [and there were not many] made her angry. It seemed like she did not just want to win. She wanted to rout Glatch. Make sure she knew that it wasn't close. I think that she has some fine tuning to do with her game. And does need to be able to keep her cool when things go wrong. But she will be a very good one.
Oh yes, and signed every autograph that was requested after the match. Every single one. This will make her popular with the NY fans.
