True. When she was under pressure, she came up with a lot of great things and particularly what I appreciate is the fact that she came forward at the net almost instinctively...

Wasn't always effective but these are the directions she much take with her game against these particular types of players...

Another, her 1 handed dropper since 2009 that shot has completely disappeared from her arsenal, she brought it back to life once here it clipped the net I hope she revives that shot on a more regular basis.

She can hit great winners but I don't think she can be able do it on a regular basis, her game somehow is not based around that particular notion...

She's never going to hit more winners than Petra let's say but she can temperate shotmakers like her in a match by moving the ball around better, by destabilizing them with constant and better changes of directions, angles, length etc... that second set against Serena was a good enough example.

A little like how a player like Djokovic does - Vika has the excellent timing, the power and the talent to really be a much more efficient metronome off the ground...

IDK if she loses confidence when she plays them but it's in these phases I think she needs to perfection her game - she really has a lot of talent...

that surprised Serena too She used it more often in Miami'11 finals. She somehow plays her best tennis dere

The winners at 12.32 and 12.52 say she can hit great winners from the backcourt... but as u said she cant hit often like KvittyGoat or Li but she still can produce enough of them to trouble big hitters. She's quite a talent Hope she gets the reward for it soon

And remember AO 2010, she used that shot a bunch of times, was working pretty well... and against Caroline in the masters was a festival...

Yes her game is controlled but just hope she finds the good balance ... in the second set, I saw many glimpse of 2009 Vika - for me, the best Victoria and my reference, hopefully she builds on that.

I mean, when facing players like Serena (Petra, Li etc...) - we all know she owns the "others".

She does have a lot of talent, it has payed a little already but should pay off someday even better for sure (major(s), YEC, Olympics) - she's a hard worker and that's what brings great and'll bring greater successes.

Re: Victoria Azarenka (VIDEOS THREAD)

So the AO R4 vs Vera match hasn't downloaded yet, so I made these meanwhile. I know Vika lost, but it was a pretty high quality match.

I posted this video on GM but it deserves a very special place and more than any in Vikaland.
