Eastbourne 2008: Andrew's eyewitness report & photos

I recently became a demi-fan of Vika, and as such, it's time for me to share with the Victoria Azarenka community the reports I have written on some of her past matches. I start with the first time I ever saw her play (such as it was): Eastbourne 2008.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S OPEN (Eastbourne, England; grass; WTA Tier II)

1. My photos
2. First-round eyewitness report: Azarenka v Rezaď

I have uploaded all my photos for Monday 16th June 2008, in one big zip-file, to:

Monday's players:

Victoria Azarenka (10)
Aravane Rezaď (6)
Amélie Mauresmo (2)

2. First-round eyewitness report: Azarenka v Rezaď (Monday 16th June 2008)

+ Aravane Rezaď d. VICTORIA AZARENKA [5], 6-2 *0-0 retired (left-knee injury)

I had been waiting for some time for my first chance to watch Azarenka play, but I still don't feel that I really have, as she was *2-5 down and taking a medical time-out when I came onto Centre Court after watching Gisela Dulko's match on Court 1. The marshall told me that Azarenka had had a nasty fall.

Azarenka tried to continue with her left knee heavily strapped, but it was obvious that she was in pain as she hobbled through her service-game to drop the first set. After a set-break in which Azarenka discussed the situation with her coach and the trainer, the umpire announced that Azarenka would not be able to continue.
