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

WD Vika expected... So now Safina !!? H2H indicates 1-4 and the last time they played was in 2009...

Most of the wins Dina has on Vika were when Victoria wasn't even yet really a top player... so 1-1 (2009-2011 : IW, RG) is more convinient IMO...

Dina has found the light again but Vika is really confident... this is a good match...

I say 70-30 Vika. Cmon...

Genie - Victoria - Kristina.

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

Just read on twitter, Vika is in a good position for cracking the top 5 for the first time.
Probably because of Sam not defending her Charleston title, and Vika's recent good results.

Not sure exactly how many points she needs though

ETA: With Sam's loss today she will have 4606, Vika at the moment with 4470.

Potential Points:

SF: 4530
F: 4600
W: 4680

She has to win the tournament to do it this week, but if not this week a good chance to do it later in the clay season!

It'd be so much easier to figure out if the WTA site had a ranking breakdown like the ATP does.

This is kind of inevitable... Vika is knocking at the top 5's door while Sam and Franscesca both actual top 5 themselves have plenty to defend...

Vika in her actual form should give maybe her best clay season this year anyways better than what she has offered the last 2yrs hopefully... the combination of both factors will make her a good top 5.

Genie - Victoria - Kristina.

I think after today's win Vika IS number 5 next week, no matter what. Or not?

Don't think so, because she will now have 4530 points, whereas Sam still has 4606 points. She has to win the tournament this week to pass Sam.

Sam has to defend a Stuttgart F, Madrid QF, RG F. Plus she is playing Rome this year and she didn't last year.
Vika on the other hand has barely anything to defend.

Being ranked number 5 or 6 doesn't really make a difference to draws but still it would be nice for Vika to reach a career high ranking.

Was hoping for a much better win than this... Hopefully Dinara gets better... her back just doesn't give her a break.

Sad way to win But hopefully now Vika can push on and win the whole thing Back-to-back titles will do the world of good for her confidence.
