Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 5.

I don't really care about the draw. All I wish for is that she can complete a few matches and doesn't show any signs of an injury. Let's hope someone tweets from her practice today.

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 5.

I wonder what is in store for us now. She is the clear odds favorite but i wouldn't bet my money on it. Hopefully some signs that things are moving in the right direction at least.

Only having Larsson to follow is just too damn trying.

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 5.

Some of the comments on twitter are not really promising. But we can only wait and see.

Here are two short practice videos.

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 5.

I honestly don't see how she's supposed to be anywhere near prime level. Just two weeks ago she was wearing that boot...it would be a miracle if she was in sharp form.

We have to go step by step..she's back on the courts..that's something to go from.

From those videos she doesn't look too bad, her footwork looks alright aswell. Like Jimmie said, we can'texpect great things from her so soon.

Lauren Davis will play Yung-Jan Chan on Center Court tomorrow for a chance to challenge Vika. Hopefully it's long?

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 5.

from the practice video she looks okay. but i think the balls sent to her were softer than the opponents when nowaways everyone wracks the balls pretty hard. she needs to run down the balls if she plays her game. she needs to be sharp, and i am not sure about a injury timeout, it often puts her in a mental block for slow starts. haha. let's brace ourselves. but it is great that she intends to play.

Hard to gauge the quality of her movement from the basic forehand & backhand drills in those videos. The end of the practice session - when players usually play "mini matches" with their practice partner - would have been more telling.

Confusion will be my epitaph

TennisTV says they'll broadcast starting tomorrow, apparently even for the WTA-side. I remember that first round coverage for WTA matches at IW used to be horrible in recent years but maybe there's an improvement now and we actually get to watch her match?
