Otherwise she'll have to improve on Grass

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

BMS completely imploding, too. I wish this was her Wimbledon or US Open draw.

- 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.

You would want her to have an easier draw on her worst surface surely Patrick?

Of course I don´t mind the easy draw, but at a tournament with a legit shot to win it would be much better. But I mean if Zheng beats Pova and Vinci beats Serena I might reconsider my position.

Sharapova hasn't looked too hot herself the last 2 matches.

Well if I said I think Zheng would beat Vika you´d call me a pessimist again.

Hmm, as a Maria specialist I'd say her form before matches with Vika don't really count for much. She was pretty dire at the US Open then played a great set and a half against Vika out of no where. She also played probably her match of the year in Stuttgart against Vika after really playing okay in the SF. YEC too, Maria almost lost to Radwanska, playing dreadfully at times, then was really good against Vika.

On the contrary, she played pretty well to beat Petra at AO, then collapsed, a similar story with Indian Wells, she played okay to beat Ana, then didn't really execute as well against Vika.

Well they say she exposed Bartoli´s poor movement and outsmarted her, so nothing to worry about with Vika, who was like a cat called Einstein today.

8 dfs from Maria. Well vika still beat to it today.

Kind of glad she doesn't have to Bartoli to play against the French crowd. But schivone no easy opponent.

Ok so fourth round it is then Schiavone full of variety on a clay court will make Vika clueless

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

From RG article. This is quite sarcastic and funny from vika. She knew how bad her serving was.

"I don't think I was playing the right way to take my chances in the first set," said Azarenka. "She definitely took advantage of that. It didn't go my way. I felt I was playing very comfortable for her. So I changed that and that's what brought me victory in the end. I left my serve at home. But if I can win serving like this, it's pretty remarkable."

Vika will win if she dictates, plays her normal game. Schiavone's clay court skills are irrelevant if she isn't in a position to use them. Avoid getting sucked into Fran's style of game.

I don't think Vika should be aspiring to this mythical clay court tennis. She destroyed Errani in Rome with her normal hardcourt game.Step into the court, dominate the points, if it takes 2 more shots to get the job done big deal.

So put away the slicing, dicing, chipping, moonballing. Use the dropshot sparingly. Get stuck into schiavone's serves and bully her off the court.

Agreed. She needs to bully Schiavone and I kind of think she can.

0A/10DFs. I´m not sure she hit a f´n sverice winner. That serve is depressing, because it gives her nothing. No free points, no set-up for easy follow-ups. It´s basically Errani-esque at 20% lower percentage and with 10 DFs.
