Some very impressive stats. She won 80% of her net approaches, hit 23 winners and 86% break point conversions. Well done Victoria!

she's well capable of beating Sania Mirza

come on Vika
good luck Vika a win there and she's close to top 100

pretty sure it will be on one of the big courts as Sania is from Asia and Aus Open promotes those players also.

Good luck to my favs

hey everyone, i've watched Azarenka's last 2 quallifying matches, and gotta say, it's brilliant watching her play - the girl's got talent! and she is a VERY nice girl off the court aswell.

Hopefully she has a good match against Mirza, and that her leg injury wont hurt her chances too much.

will post some pics when i get back to christchurch on the 30th.

hey all, Victoria had a gut wrenching loss today (recieved a nasty line call at set point in the tie break, which ultimately cost her the match. nevermind, i'm pleased with the way she's fought her way through the quallies, and very nearly past mirza - whilst injured! looks like a very promising future.

btw, anyone know if she's entering the Girls Singles this time around?

did you see the match ?

Vika
she hopefully wont need to qualify for Roland Garros or Wimbledon.
got about 35pts to defend before RG entries made.

Vika has finished with juniors, she's sticking to WTA and some ITFs.
she was World Champ last yr and only played 6 tourns.
she doesnt need juniors and would be wasting her time now.

Good luck to my favs

Tough loss. And they didn't even show it on Eurosport... sad.

Good luck Vika. You've proven the rest of the world you have a place on Top 30 already!

okay, thanks for the info.

Yip, i was at the match - had a bloody good seat too (will post some pics when i get home next week sometime).
As i said earlier, this leg injury she had made her chase down fewer balls than she normally would, hense i feel she would've comprehensively beaten Mirza had she been fully fit.

of concern though, is her ability to hold serve on the important points, like in the qualifying and in the tie break against mirza, she had her chances, but let herself down with way too many DF's and UE's. However with a bit more fine tuning on her serve - she will be a force on the tour very quickly.

do you have a list of the tournaments Vika has entered for the next few months?

Hopefully she comes back to Auckland next year so i can go up and cheer her on!

her serve didn't help her at all against mirza, she hits the ball well but doesn't use enough strategy imo, doesn't think out her points and tries to hit through players too much. but that could have only been in this match? first match i've seen of her. looks like she should be top 50 now imo, she has the power just needs to work a bit on the strategy and serve. didn't see her volley so maybe in the future that could be something she could work towards.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.
