Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

About the Fed Cup it was probably the same reason why Vika gave up playing doubles with Maria Kirilenko in 2011. Basically she wanted to concentrate to singles matches in tournaments. Only few top 10 players like Serena Williams with Venus Williams (in Grand Slam tournaments) and Sara Errani with Roberta Vinci (in most of the tournaments) play both singles and doubles. Even Maria Kirilenko has decided to stop playing doubles in this year. http://www.tennisworldusa.org/WTA---...icolo8414.html

Besides Belarus would need larger roster of players in top 50 to be successful in Fed Cup. For instance the Czechs have one of best doubles team ( Andrea Hlaváčková & Lucie Hradecká) and 3 other top 30 players (Klara Zakopalova, Lucie Šafářová & Petra Kvitova). It is much easier to build a team like that when it is not only based on how well Petra Kvitova plays in Fed Cup.

I agree, Vika's kind of screwed with being the only big name/top player for her country when it comes to Fed Cup. And let's be honest here, the only reason top players play Fed/Davis Cup is to qualify for the Olympics. Fed Cup lost its prestige eons ago.

About the fed cup thing, i only followed Vika since late 2011. I cant remember her playing fed cup ever since then. Anyone having information to share why not?

Vika's fed cup activity
http://www.victoriousvika.com/FedCup.php

you can see she used to play. And I am guessing that her body doesn't allow her to play. She has to prioritize. Just last week she pulled out of a WTA tournament, did that several times last year. She can't play week in and week out.

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

Could someone translate her two last tweets please

victoria azarenka ‏@vika7
Ochen priatno poluchit zvanie sportsmenki goda! vsem bolelshikam ogromnoe spasibo! skoro podgotovliu video dlia vseh bolelshikov

kotorie podderzhivaut belorusskij sport i ne tolko tennis! tak zhe pozdravliau vseh nominantov i pobeditelei nominacii!

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.
