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

Not before 9 pm CENTRALE.

I know this tournament is not the most important and i shouldn't look past Goerges. But don't like that she got the latest start of any player in the tournament. Not sure she is yet up to speed to play many matches in a row if she wants to go deep. (Still a bit irretated about the WTA championship last year and the scheduling there).

Crazy results today btw.

Yeah, Aga is out, Caroline is out, Ana is out. After Urzsula Radwanska beat Ana Ivanovic, it also means that Vika's possible third round opponent will be either Ula Radwanska or Ayumi Morita.

If Vika and Redfoo are supposed to be in Malmö, tonight is the night for the first semi-final of Eurovision Song contest: http://www.eurovision.tv/page/histor...song=29593..:D

But I sincerely hope Vika is concentrating in Rome for her tomorrow' s match against Julia Görges.....

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

I think that Vika could have a very good chance to get at least to the SF. She shouldn't be much troubled by Georges or the winner of Morita/Radwanska.

The QF will be a good measuring stick for her. If Stosur is more or less back in form she should beat Petra, who is looking to me more and more dreadful every time I see her play.

WTF they put Vika on court 2 tmrw & no TV pics there. She has to win tonight 1st

Seriously?

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.

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

That's as comfortable as she's been with her game since the later rounds at Doha. Some of those returns off first serves were awesome.

I know Julia's return game is filth but great to see Vika not even facing a break point.

Shocking that they've put her on court 2 tomorrow, having her on last on centre tonight was ok as long as her subsequent matches were also around then. Now 18 hours or so until the next match but if she plays like that she'll be fine, although Morita is an underrated player.

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

This was nice. More of the same against Morita please and then we´ll get a good measure of where her game is at against Stosur/Kvitova. I always wanted to see Stosur/Vika on clay.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

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

Vika played very well tonight and she looked focused and fit. Her head-to-head stats with Julia Görges are now 5-1, and the only loss happened when Vika retired in 6-4 lead.

As we know her third round opponent tomorrow is Ayumi Morita (WTA #45). They have played previously 4 and 3 years ago, when Vika won 6-0, ret. in Rome 2009 and 6-0 6-2 in Stanford 2010. If Vika plays like tonight, there shouldn't be much worry about. http://www.wtatennis.com/head2head/p.../player2/12089

Much cleaner play today, good to see she's worked hard between the Makarova fuckery and this match.

But what the hell is Gasquet/Janowicz doing on Pietrangeli while Vika is dumped to Court 2?

I can only think the WTA are only down to show 6 televised matches a day, because otherwise there is no reason to have some doubles on Pietrangeli court over another match you could televise.

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

Vika hitting the ball well again. Ball striking came back faster than i expected. May not be steady enough for every match here, but now i got good hope for RG.

Crap we can't see the match tomorrow. As long as she doesn't care and just focus we should have a good match to see on friday.

Tomorrow´s live streams: Li vs Jankovic, Vinci vs Halep, Errani vs Kirilenko, S. Williams vs Cibulkova, Kvitova vs Stosur and Sharapova vs Stephens. Yeah, but no Azarenka vs Morita...
