Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.
I saw it live and vika's emotion was very subdued. Can't wait to see her interview.
As in all rounds, she had slow start and good for her to finally wake p in the mid of 2nd set. Oh we'll rain delay helped Maria. But again, 3rd set with 3 dinners and 13 UEs are no excipients for her. Her fighting spirit there to fend off 4 mps. But with her form to miss those very Matabele shots is in no way a chance to win this all. That said, she had the very good chance to win this. Only if she held serves. He didn't take opportunities as much as Maria. She played too safe in my opinion and let Maria dictated most of the rallies. A little fire would have got her further.
Good news, no dfs. Actually her serve didn't Ke her down, her rallies did. What an irony.
There is still eastbourne in between, vika didn't play right last year. Did Maria? Is vika entered into that this time?
