Which is the better shot for Azarenka,her forehand or backhand? I love her forehand motion and took a good pic of it at AI. Thanks for the info.

That's a hard question. :p
She's so solid off both sides.

She opens up the court more with her forehand, but her backhand is automatic.

I'd say her backhand. ;)

I`ll tell you this, both the backhand and forehand were tearing up Franny today. Vika doesn`t seem to mind which side they hit to. Nice droppers. Great touch at the net. This is a great player. There are slam titles in her future if she stays the course.

Wow. Judging from the scores and stats, Vika's level of play has been absolutely amazing so far. :hearts: I just wish I could have seen at least some of her matches :bigcry:
Only 6 UEs against Schiavone for the entire match according to the tournament website (and the RG stats seem to lump the unforced and forced errors together). That's VERY impressive for someone with her style of play. :eek:

Vika showed in Miami that she has the game to take out Sveta, as long as she believes in herself. I just hope she can keep it together mentally.

Go Vika! :bounce:

From Yahoo (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news;_ylt=AkO9KHSNq6ELAlyou_.PyBI4v7YF?slug=reu-openazarenka_pix_graphic&prov=reuters&type=lgns):

Azarenka blazes trail in Paris

May 31, 9:19 am EDT

By Pritha Sarkar

PARIS, May 31 (Reuters) - Until this week, Victoria Azarenka had never won a match at Roland Garros.

The Belarussian teenager had slipped under the tennis radar in Paris as her two previous visits had both ended in first-round defeats.

This year, the 18-year-old has been blazing a trail at the French Open, reaching the fourth round by dropping a total of just six games in her three matches to date.

“I feel very good. The last two matches I was in the zone,” said 16th seed Azarenka after setting up a last-16 showdown with former finalist Svetlana Kuznetsova.

After dropping four games against her opening-round opponent Edina Gallovits, she followed it up by handing another Romanian, Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea, the dreaded 6-0 6-0 double bagel.

On Saturday, she kept up the pace with an almost equally ruthless 6-1 6-1 win over seasoned Italian campaigner Francesca Schiavone, the 18th seed.

The run of results means Azarenka has dropped the fewest number of games among all her rivals this year.

Asked to explain the secret of her success, she said: “Well, when I entered the court today, I was just focused on playing my game and playing point by point.

“I think that what helps me to play that good, because I just focus on every point and I’m not focused on the score.”

Azarenka started the year ranked 30 in the world and has quickly climbed up the standings to 17th after contesting finals in Gold Coast and Prague. During the claycourt season, she also reached the semi-finals in Berlin and hence arrived in Paris in confident mood.

“This year I improved a lot my forehand, which was my weak shot before. Now it’s like my weapon, which helps me a lot,” said the Arizona-based player, who took six weeks off after the Australian Open to recuperate from knee surgery.

She is now relishing the chance of facing Kuznetsova.

“Sveta is a great player. It’s always tough to play against her. She’s a big player. But she’s also human,” said Azarenka, who took a set off Kuznetsova the last time they met.

“I’ve played her two times already. Probably won’t be that scary anymore. I don’t think I’m going to have any nerves because I experienced a lot of matches, big stadiums, good players. I just look at it very different now than I used to.

“I’ll just try to do my best. I feel pretty confident now, and I think I can do a good job.”

Kuznetsova added: “She’s tough. She can play good. She has nothing to lose. She hits the ball really strong… I’m really looking forward to this dual.”

Sveta was VERY solid from the baseline tonight, and her serving was outstanding. Still, Vika had quite a few chances in the 1st set (0 of 7 on BPs :o). She showed some frustration near the end of the set, but honestly I was pretty impressed with her overall attitude. A year or two ago, she would have completely lost it. She seems to be controlling her temper a lot better now, a sure sign that she's maturing (unlike some other players :tape:).

They were tightly locked in battle when play was suspended. It's hard to say what will happen tomorrow. It could be over quickly, or (hopefully) we could be headed for a deciding set.

Go Vika! :rocker2:

Saturday, May 12, 2007

I'm excited to go back home to see my parents and my boyfriend. He's playing a tournament this week - he's a tennis player too, it's a futures tournament, and I'm going to support him! He said that I never talk about him in the blog so here it is: I'm coming to support you in Minsk :)

Don't know if it's the same guy or not. I suppose so.

Jun 4th, 2008, 08:56 AM
Vika :hug:

Honestly, from what I've seen of it (that is, most of the 1st set + beginning of the 2nd), Sveta was just too good. Her defense was outstanding, so was her serving. And she was hitting winners all over the place. Vika didn't play a great match, but she didn't play poorly either. This was NOT as easy as the score would suggest, though. Vika had 7 BPs on Sveta's serve in the 1st set (including a 0-40 lead when she was down 2-3), but she couldn't convert them. There was no major choking from Vika this time (unlike in their previous match), Sveta just raised her level when it mattered most.

The loss in doubles to Dellacqua/Schiavone is pretty disappointing, though. But she's still alive in the mixed competition.

Jun 17th, 2008, 08:54 AM
from what stefi wrote, it could be serious :scared:

again the knee injury which kept her away for 6 weeks

I attended the match. Aravane played quite good, and Vika could do nothing about it. At 4*-2 40*-15, Vika took a long break because she cut herself at the hand. Like 10 minutes later, play was resumed. Then, on the last point of the set, Vika suddenly fell like she had done earlier this year in Paris. The trainer that was still there after the cut thing immediatly arrived for her. She stayed lying on court for like 10-15 minutes, and then she withdrew. I heard her cry. I knew immediatly she would not go back to the game, it reminded me Paris so much.

What the hell does that supposed to mean?! 2nd weak at least?!

Vika goes till the end.

I also watched the match and she was bloody marvelous throughout. However all going well, she is seeded to meet Sharapova in the 4th Round. If Vika can keep this level of play up, we're in for one hell of an amazing match!

Lets not talk about Sharapova until we see them both one to one at the 4th round draw.
I don't like to talk about stuff we didn't get to yet. VIka is a great player. Its her tournament to rock on (:
I am really sad I'm missing her games. Its just unfair. Its boring to watch Federer, Ivanovic and Williams. I want some more contest games.
Anyway, Today is Cirstea (:

Don't start whining. She caught Petrova in a great day.
Don't forget Vika is just 18, the tie-breaks were so solid and hard, Petrova is full of experience, being 3rd in the world before. Vika will have tones of chances in the future, She had a good tournament and I hope Shahar Peer will be able to progress further, also their team in doubles (:

Good luck!

Vika you had a good run here, just caught Petrova as she is coming back in to form sadly! Good luck in doubles :)

It was a very close match, which could have gone either way. Vika had her chances, but Petrova served VERY well on the crucial points. "Petrova" and "mental toughness" are not words you usually find in the same sentence, but her attitude has improved tremendously since that pathetic performance at the French Open.

I was pretty pissed off after the match though. It seemed to me Petrova pulled a Serena Williams on Vika (remember last year's match against Hantuchova?). Towards the end of the match, especially during the 2nd-set tie-break, between points Petrova was acting like she could barely move, and right after that she would hit a great passing run on the run. Vika was getting visibly annoyed, and so was I (my keyboard suffered a bit from it :lol:).

Spiritof42
Jul 1st, 2008, 07:16 AM
I watched Vika's latest doubles match earlier today, and enjoyed it quite a bit. Vika and Shahar make a good team.
I'm glad they're still playing by the traditional rules at Wimbledon and are not using that "no ad scoring" crap that has become the norm in WTA tournaments.

Black/Huber (#1 seeds) are next. :unsure: Good luck!
