If she does, or goes deep in the event, she should consider pulling out of Stuttgart although it's been brought to my attention that its clay would be more beneficial for her game.
On paper she'll play Marbella-Fed Cup-Stuttgart-Madrid-Rome.
That's a lot of tennis, I really hope her body is able to hold up. And she only gets a long break again after Wimbledon (unless she gets injured, which I sincerely hope doesn't happen of course) so she could be tired as fuck by the time FO or the grass season starts.

BTW in talking about streaks she never won a title on clay... she made 2 finals and her last in 2007 and almost 4yrs.

Hopefully it must have to end sooner from now.
I think she made the final of Prague in 2008?

Vika's next opponent is Laura Pous Tio, another Spanish dirtballer. Is she the one who took out Clijsters last year?

That's what I'm worried about. She's played a ton of tennis in the last month and clay isn't the nicest to Vika as it is. So hopefully, she considers pulling out of Stuttgart so she can pay the two manditories and then the French without being exhausted. Also, I hope she doesn't play doubles again until the French. I don't really have any expectations for her on clay, but Wimbledon and the US Open Series this summer are another story.

I'm sure the main reason she entered so many pre-RG tournaments is because she knows she struggles on clay so she probably doesn't expect to go very far in the events, but still, if she does have a good week here in Marbella, she should take a break.

I agree, she should definitely consider withdrawing from Stuttgart if she goes deep in this event. Maybe even if she doesn't go far here in Marbella too.
Also, I hope the Palace of Sports in Minsk will be hosting a clay court for the Fed Cup tie but when Vika and Caro played that exho there last year it was hardcourt or something like carpet.

Yes ECM Prague in 2008 and Estoril in 2007... well it's still about 4yrs. she hasn't a final on clay and Marbella will be very good for that hopefully.

I think it would be better not to participate in the Fed Cup. Who cares about the Fed Cup? Seriously. Besides in Minsk will be carpet, I'm sure. Those court changes ...

Marbella, spare week, Stuttgart, spare week, Madrid, Rome, spare week, RG. It would be just great!

6-3 6-2 against Laura Pous-Tio. Same as yesterday, few sloppy errors here and there but mostly solid and some jaw-dropping winners occasionally.

Safina next.

Broken a few times again, but still super solid, which is good against the classic dirtballers.

I'm really nervous about her playing Safina, who owns Vika

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 3.

Hmm I don't know, I'm fairly confident about Vika's chances.
Safina still really isn't playing THAT well, plus her serve might seem to have solidified because of the increasing amount of match play she had but those were all against scrubs (and an out-of-form Pironkova), I think her serve will completely collape if Vika bombs Dinara's serve. Vika's hitting pretty well of the ground now too so like I said I'm fairly confident but there's also a possibility that she might tank. Although I don't think Vika is one for tanks. We'll just have to wait and see.


I really hope Vika's next match is the last match on. I REALLY want to watch it but if it's one of the earliest matches I won't be able to.
