Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.
I started following her at the end of 2011 and start of 2012. And one thing i liked was that she could play week after week without problem.
I think i wised up regarding that though. No way she is playing all these tournaments to the end before US open.
Of course we have no influence over her long term strategy, but if we/i had i would suggest fitness would be the main priority in the off season. Not that she is unfit, but general fitness to avoid injuries. I think some are blessed with a body to not get injuries, and others will have to work very hard or will have serious trouble.
She played as great in the start of 2013 as in 2012, but even if she won i think there was a bit of question about injuries from the start. (Starting from Brisbane).
I will enjoy seeing her play these tournaments though, i guess we will find out in a couple of months if it was a good strategy.
I think the ranking is important (for us, perhaps not the casual fan that only follows the slams). But for now i wouldn't mind her beeing ranked number 3 (or even 4 or 5). As long as she is healthy she will be serious contender for any tournment regardless.
