@ Vikapower: great post.
I was not sure, but now she is out.

Btw regarding Kerber and grass. The match Vika played against Kerber in the olympics i find very underrated. One of the better grass matches i have seen the last years. Vika keeps hitting the baseline over and over while Kerber run and counter.

I agree the olympics was a great match. I've been less impressed with Kerber's counterpunching here though. Mainly she's just retrieving, when she's really on she's reaching those wide shots, flicking her wrist and the ball flies off for a winner.

Vika needs to find some damn form. Katya and Jo-La are not up to snuff as the temporary leaders of the LOB.

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

If she does well in the US she will put herself in with a good chance of qualifying, which should motivate her for the Asian tournaments. Last year she was in a good position to take advantage of her relative freshness going into the late part of the season but she wasted it with a poor attitude. Right now her attitude seems very strong so I expect her to pick up a lot of points in the coming tournaments.

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

She really needs to vulture the fall season, play the required tournaments and then a couple extras to get some momentum going. Everyone else will be exhausted and there's no reason she cannot take advantage.

So, according to Twitter Vika has travelled to Malibu, California. I guess she will be in North America next two months, at least in Los Angeles, Philadephia, Montreal, Cincinnati and New York City.

I don't understand this logic at all, let alone the conversation leap.

Just because you aren't a fan of/personally don't like a certain player doesn't remove that player from being a factor on the tour. Serena is still the best player in the world and she's still an extremely dangerous opponent for everyone else. If Vika (or anyone else for that matter) wants to win titles of any variety odds are they're going to have to go through Serena to get there. So yes people are going to worry about Serena even if they don't like her. People are going to be concerned about where their favorite player lands in the draw in connection to where Serena is. Look at the last two slams and how everyone freaked out over Serena and Pova being in the same quarter. That's a tough as draw on paper and Pova was lucky in Paris that Serena went down early and Bouchard was lucky Serena went down early at Wimbledon. Those are just the facts. That's the nature of Serena Williams in this game.

Just because one doesn't like Serena doesn't magically remove her from this sport. She still remains a factor whether one likes it or not.

Vika is a true world citizen, does she ever stay at a single place longer than two weeks in a row?

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

So the thread about nicknames for Petra got me thinking about how many names we have for Vika. So I thought I'd make a list of the names I could think of:

Vika (well, it is a nickname)
Darth Vika
Snickers
Azza
Temperenka
Queen of Fuckery
Sith Princess
Vikasaurus
Bratarenka
Vuvurenka
Shriekarenka
Vika the Shrieka

That's all I can think of. What did I forget?
