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

LMAO at listening to commentators saying "Sloane Stephens gave Azarenka ALL she could handle in that match last year; Azarenka had to use all her experience to get through that match." 6-1, 6-4 much ?

Coming up soon, I'm getting excited .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Well guys, I don't bet most of you will be watching Maria, but I don't think Vika has anything to fear. In fact I think Vika will destroy her on current form.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Maria
Venus
ANA
Petra

She's played well at the start in both her past two matches but can't maintain it at all. And she's in a fair bit of trouble with Pome right now. I really think Empress could come through and shock everyone, she is in pretty good form and has gotten no attention so far.

Even if Sharapova gets through, her on-court time will be a dramatic disadvantage once she reaches the SF. When this is over, she'll have spent 7+ hrs on court for her last three matches alone...and all during the day & heat.

Yeah true. Even if she gets through Domi, I doubt she'll get by JJ.

And Sharapova is gone.

Well, everything but the final would be a disappointment now pretty much.

Well, well, Maria and Serena are out of this tournament. We just have to keep our heads cool and think about one match at the time....

True. Besides it's not like Domi hasn't given Vika trouble before...but we shouldn't be looking too far ahead anyway.

Yeah it's just that everyone will be focused on her now. ESPN just called her the "overwhelming favorite" and we all know before yesterday barely anyone even thought she had a shot. Somehow there also seems to be zero focus on NaNa even though she almost beat Vika last year.

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

In general though, I think Vika will respond well to pressure. I don't think it goes to her head and she's one who's smart enough to realize these exits don't affect her anyway since she wasn't slated to play them until much later. Also, there was HUGE pressure at the US Open when everyone was talking about that rivalry and she held up well. I'm just saying it will be very different from the first week.

If you post about it enough it might really happen.

I really hope we can FINALLY stop hearing about that semifinal after this every time Vika plays.
