I think we're almost guaranteed to get that final excusing any possible injuries/unexpected upsets, even if these days for Serena to make a USO F is much easier to predict than for her to make an AO F if that makes sense.

It was a good match. She could improve her BP conversion and she had some problems when being stretched on the FH side but that was mainly in the first set. But more importantly the serve looked pretty good, as did the rest of her game. Next match against Vögele!




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.

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

i thought overall was a good start. came out with ambition and focus. returns and serves working decently. second set was more aggressive once bagging the first set. as mentioned, FH was stretched but it was to casey's credit, she was drilling the corners very well in the first set. good serves placements, the speed was rather slow mostly around 150s+, need to improve with other players. only broken once, but then the last one when serving the match. i thought she was a little soft there. i like her play and attitude. she means business in australia. yay.

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

This was probably close to best you could hope for in the first match of the season. She took half a set to get going and there were still a few hiccups along the way but she's in the right direction.

Note improvement in serve, it's not considerably faster (although 160kmh+ serves were plenty) but they're putting her in a winning position more than most of 2013 I would suggest.

First win, good. Don't think this match said much how the season will be. I think we will see first sign of that in the semi final. (If she doesn't reach that it will of course not be a good sign).

I don't think it's a big deal if she doesn't, though I fully doubt that.
