Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.
As someone who knew Ben before he was special, and just making fun of big names and pretending to worship scrubs on another forum it doesn't surprise me he's still pressed about last year. He reads this forum including this thread in particular because he quoted me verbatim in a private message on Facebook. I'm ridiculously happy Vika shut his weak ass down. Asking such a question is the epitome of being unprofessional.
Vika needs to patient and agressive vs. Sloane. She needs to be willing to take balls out of the air and end the points fast when the opportunity is there. I really enjoyed that she had to hit a lot of balls and play angles. I do think that Yvonne's flatter, more consistent strokes may have helped her dial in a bit more after the two previous matches. She needs to get a lot of well placed first serves in. She really needs to trust that shot. She needs to keep Sloane pushed far back and on the baseline; forcing her to rely on her movement. I can't believe I'm pulling a page out of Brad Gilbert's ass but Vika needs to take Sloane's legs out from under her.
That said, this will probably go three and be a fuckery buffet. I just hope Vika gets through.
