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

I always try to stay positive, but if Serena play somewhere close to what she can it will be hard. Every game will begin with an advantage to Serena with how they both serve.

Great result this week for Vika, impressed with her mental strength to reach final when all the best players are playing. Hopefully the quality of her play is just a work in progress that will be done in time for the second week in US open.

And over 600 ranking points from this week regardless of the final result. More than for a slam quarter final.

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

I'm crying so much tears I've never cried after match like this. So proud of her...

I knew she could pull it off and she did. Victoria is such a great champion... incredible. Victoria is coming closer and closer to Serena in terms of fighting spirit, determination etc. so amazing.

One of the best matches of the year.

How the hell did Vika go from playing like shit last night to this? Seriously?

Serena must have played Vika into form.

Oh and that volley in the breaker.

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

I hope this is not too hyperbolic but Vika would have to be one of the most underrated volleyers on tour. That volley to give her MP was amazing considering how grueling the rest of the point was.

Overall, another great unexpected win and you can't go wrong with two wins against Serena in a year.

Excellent fighting spirit from Vika "the Guest" Azarenka! Hope she continues to improve for the US Open.

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

Randomly two things started working for Vika like they haven't for a while - the halfvolleyed groundstrokes standing up to the baseline and the forehand into Serena's backhand corner. Bang she's dominating the long rallies. The first point of the game when Serena served for it was magnificent including that improvised shot off the netcord. And that volley at 6-6

What a great player.

I think everybody who watched her today and isn't a total hater must have become a fan today. She was just so impressive, her whole attitude...it was magnificent to watch.

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

I don't really post here but I had to after watching this match.

She started so bad (well, more like Serena was playing really well), but she regrouped after the first set and started playing her best tennis since Doha. That point at 6-6 was incredible and if she could play more like that she will win many more slams !

Good luck at the US, hopefully she goes one round further than last year.

That was incredible! I'm so proud of her. Another win over Serena is huge, and I hope she can remember that at the USO. I hope I get to see her there.

And yeah, she really impressed me mentally. After losing that very game at 4-1 in the 2nd, she easily regrouped (I think she came back from 0-40 in the next game ?) and kept believing. Same in the third after losing the third. She really has a champion's mentality since 2011
