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

I don't know why people are surprised that she ended up in Serena's half? I thought that was something we already knew?

Apart from that, when your highest ranked opponent in your quarter is Errani, then that's enough to feel comfortable about her making the SF. Serena's not unbeatable either, always a chance she'll struggle through a round or two.

Pretty satisfied with this draw.

Good draw to SF. If she faces Serena there i'll give her ~30-40% chance to go through this time.

Everyone's going to tip a straight sets smashing, but deep inside you know Vika doesn't roll over in slams very easily.

Lets look at it this way, if there is ever a slam that Vika can beat Serena in it's going to be the Australian Open

I still get sad over the 2009 4R to be honest.

Another Serena/Victoria SF -- yikes, that's going to be the 8th freaking major and 3rd consecutive where they meet. Seriously at this freaking rhythm they could meet like 11 000 times in a single calendar year.

Victoria is bound to beat Serena one of these times, like The Vikasaurus said, her best chance would be in Australia -- it's her best tournament/event. Let's hope -- she'll definitively make the SF with this draw, there's no one really relevant to upset her before the SF.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Definitively, she can beat Serena but her main problem is she always freaking falls short, it's pretty annoying when you take AO 2009, 2010 with US Open 2011. She needs to resolve that, it's not as impossible especially that she's been close already 2 times in Australia self.

She's making the SF here almost for certain even with her B-/C game in this draw so it's hard not to project in the future -- but anyways he really has no choice there probably that will make her transcend herself for once and for all to not lose the title here.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Tough luck to get Serena in her half AGAIN. (seriously?)

But she did manage to avoid her nemeses like Cibulkova and Li.

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

Draw is ok. The other seeds in her section are so weak that it's really hard to anticipate who she might face in R3, R4 or QFs. She's there to win the tournament, if she's gonna do that she'll most likely have to beat Serena at some point, whether that's in the final or semi final is not a big deal.

(The only nightmare scenario is Vika beating Serena in an epic semifinal and then being tired/unfocused for the final and gifting Sharapova the number one spot)

Agree. Going out in SF or final against Serena doesn't really makes a difference except for the rankings. Maria got to a lot of finals last year and got some shade because she lost so many of them. As it is now i think Aga has slightly better chances to reach the final than Maria btw.
