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

Nice words from Alizé.

Alize Cornet ‏@alizecornet
Vika is a great champion, I couldn't do much better today, I gave all I had, but it wasn't enought! Amazing crowd on the Armstrong stadium

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

No way. I watched parts of her match today, it was awful as well. It might be a total crapfest but Vika will win this.

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

I might remember it incorrectly but some parts of her game is worse this year. (Probably because of injury breaks)

She is still so strong mentally she will raise her game when she needs to, and win most matches. I think she played ok today, it was not too bad. (Or she played great, but compared to what she can).

I would give her a 80% chance or so to win the next match.

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

Ajde barely scraped past McHale so I'm not particularly worried about that. One thing you start to get used to is that 9/10 times, Vika will lift her level when she really needs to.

I still, however, don't quite understand how Cornet's been able to take 2 sets off her. I suppose this comes down to Cornet not being as bad as TF paints her as.

If she only got broken once I'd consider that a very good sign.

Oh Thank you guys. I couldn't bare watching after 1st set. She played so bad....So glad she pulled through. Now I can rewatch if on YouTube.

Her fm groundstrokes seemed off, she was not aggressive enough and was not better in defense in the first. What did she improved later?

Kind of a crazy day at the US open. Vika is still standing. Get rest and she still has every chance here to do something great.

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

I think one thing she has to really commit, is taking chances early in first set. Sha had multiple bps and didn't convert, and then came back to haunt her every return game. The outlooks would have been entirely different has she got it in first game. Cornet may not swung so freely and vika so limitedly.

Fair to say perhaps she needed that wake up call, it usually ends up boding pretty well for her in the end, like the Hampton match at the AO and again the Cornet match at the FO.

True, but totally unnecessary for almost a 3 hour play. And she should be a bit more considerate for her fans not getting heart attacks ....

Put yourself in the shoes of a Na or Kvitova fan and you'll thank Vika for being Vika forever.

Vika second on Ashe tomorrow...not sure if I'll be able to watch.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.
