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

Is Vika injured? Vika's odds have near trebled in the space of about 30 minutes. Hundreds of thousands opposing her...

What?

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.

There is seemingly an infinite supply of money willing to oppose her at crazy odds. No-one is doing that unless they know something. They better be wrong .

Go to an exchange. Bookies are always slow because they have retirement protection.

Great another Indian wells/Miami/Wimbledon moment before her match. Let hope this time it works out better. But i agree, very suspicious when the odds start to change a lot.

Good luck Vika, final in sight!

1.35 seems fair. I donīt think Pennetta is a good match-up at all. She hasnīt dropped a set yet either. More likely that people feel Pennetta is a good bet at 5.0-6.0. If she drifted to 1.5, Iīd be concerned.

Mouratoglou telling Pennetta to go after Vikaīs serve.

Its gone somewhat normal now. It's the approx Ģ500k that out of nowhere decided it wanted to oppose her that is somewhat worrying. There are a number of theories you can take from this, but that's not normal.

Now just an aggressive ROS doesnīt guarantee you victory, but it is a strategy Vika needs to handle in the future and tbh, if she can develop a 20-30% better serve because of it, sheīd be in great shape for the next few years.
I'd love to see Vika play her cloned self to see if either can hold serve in the match

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

That was nice of Pennetta to reduce herself to playing like Cornet. She was far too passive. In the 2nd set she also appeared to tire, so not sure what the gameplan was there. Whenever she was down she actually showed how she could have done her damage. As for Vika, waste of time to talk about the serve. I was positively surprised that she can actually open the racquet head and hit forehands with an outward trajectory to the backhand of her opponent. Thatīs a shot that has sorely been lacking. Bad timing on the volleys. Always stuck in no womanīs land.

Return of serve great again. Her service games were not great again but the last service game was solid- she finally got some good first serves.
