Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.
Yeah, the draw's not too bad. Although I still have nightmares about that Hampton match.
Vs Stephens again...would be quite the match for the media.
It´s a nice draw. First two rounds look pretty straight forward. 3rd and 4th round potentially tough with Hampton and Stephens/Kuznetsova, but also a chance that this falls apart due to the injury problems of Hampton/Stephens and the general unpredictability of Kuznetsova. Radwanska/Wozniacki is a good quarterfinal draw as long as Vika is close to her top form. I also prefer Maria over Na Li at the moment. The depth in women´s tennis is improving, so nothing will be easy from the 3rd round on, but it looks fair enough on paper.
I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
