Serena withdrew from her Thailand exho with Vika, Li Na will play instead.

Serena has surgery on her big toes, will skip Thailand exhibition match

She needs to win best Belarusian athlete of 2012 tbh.

No.2 in the poll is a biathlete Darya Domracheva, and for instance in Germany a biathlete Magdalena Neuner had twice as many votes for the award as tennis player Angelique Kerber in second place. In Finnish sporting news Domracheva is mentioned quite often, because she is one of the main rivals to Kaisa Mäkäräinen, a Finnish biathlete. But Vika should win this one!

I hope this year she’s finally going to be The best women athlete.
It’s a shame she’s never have won this award. Last two years she was second or third behind Domracheva and Herasimenia (swimming WC). The most dangerous is off course Dasha, she’s very popular here in Belarus (I also always cheering for her, but for me she’s second behind Vika ), more popular than Vika , but that’s another story, why it is so...

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

I'm still at a loss at how a biathlete could possibly be more popular than a top tennis player with a GS?

In addition, I've never understood why Belarusians seem to love biathlon so much.
oh yeah i guess is offline

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

If you like to vote various Athlete of the Year polls, I found this site: http://ussa.edu/ballots/athlete-of-the-year/#

There are 12 male and 12 female athletes as nominees and 4 of them are tennis players (Vika, Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray) and one of them is Caroline Wozniacki´s boyfriend...

Cronin's article on Vika.

TR Year-End Top 50: The Women, Nos. 1-5
December 19, 2012 By Matthew Cronin

1.Victoria Azarenka
Without question, 2012 was the Belarussian’s best season to date as she grew up, became less emotional on court, a more sure-handed volleyer and more clear- headed player. When it comes to pure ball striking from inside the baseline, she’s right there with anyone, including Serena, who owned her all season long.
But where she can’t touch Williams is in the service department, and she does return first serves that well even though she can scald second service returns. She also does not have Williams supreme confidence in meaningful matches against super elite players..like..well…Serena.
But maybe, just maybe after she nearly bested Williams in a terrific US Open final she’ll come into Melbourne thinking she has a real chance against her and actually pull off the win. But she may have to get to through Sharapova first and while she proven herself to be a better outdoor hard-court player than Maria was in 2012, she did take two losses to the Russian (both indoors) and the four-time Slam champ isn’t exactly scared of her.
The 23 year old was hands down the best player of her good generation this year, leading Radwanska, Kvitova, Wozniacki in her year view mirror (although Cibulkova did shock her at Roland Garros). But Caro has ways played her tough, she didn’t get a chance to show Kvitova – who owns a winning record against Azarenka – her much improved self, and she has really gotten into Radwanska head and game.
All those players will take a run at her next year and it will be fascinating to see if Vika can stay composed, continue to improve, win another major or two and finish the year at No. 1 again. I suspect that Azarenka will be in the fight, but she’ll spend part of the year battling not only her rivals, but herself and her critics too.
