Guys, I saw the end of the match and Vika is injured! She hurt her knee badly on the last serve. I saw her after and she had walking sticks. Does not look good at all, sorry for the bad news...

oh! Im kinda glad that Vika didnt lose while she was healthy but kinda worried for her now. Hope its nothing too serious & she will get back on track soon.

According to her official website, Vika is "currently recovering from a minor surgery on her knee and is hopeful for a return at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami".

I didn't know about the surgery. Even though she has some points to defend in Miami and I very much miss her presence on the tour, I hope she'll wait until the knee is fully recovered before making her comeback.

Get well soon Vika! :hug:

Miami main draw is out:

Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) [3]
Bye
Yung-Jan Chan (TPE)
Ioana Raluca Olaru (ROU)

Tatiana Perebiynis (UKR)
Gisela Dulko (ARG)
Bye
Victoria Azarenka (BLR) [25]

Last year, Vika lost to Vaidisova in the 3rd round. She should be able to defend last year's points, but will then almost certainly face Kuznetsova, and we all know how dangerous Sveta can be (except when she's playing finals, that is :o).

Anyway, I'm not expecting too much from Vika here. I just hope the knee is fully healed.

Good luck Vika! :bounce:

It's such a frustrating loss :sad: :sad: Poor Vika :( I didn't see the match but don't think she was injured,I think she was disappointed/mad for blowing such a huge lead and a MP at 5/3 and wasn't herself in the third set :sad:. In any case, I'm afraid this loss will haunt Vika for some time :(
Better luck in doubles :hug:

:sobbing:

Was cruising towards victory, had a MP at 5-3 in the 2nd, and then everything fell to pieces. Almost got there, but "almost" is not quite enough. :sad:

This has to be one of the most disappointing losses of her career. I really do hope she can get over it and keep in mind the positive aspects instead of the fact that she choked her lead and tanked in the 3rd, but that's easier said than done.

Vika had 61 52, 53 and MP, is obvious that she lost for inexpert.

Here's her section of the draw...

Victoria Azarenka vs. Sara Errani
Qualifier vs. Dominika Cibulkova
Nathalie Dechy vs. Qualifier
Anna Chakvetadze vs. BYE

Both Errani and Cibulkova have been playing quite well lately.
Chakvetadze hasn't been at her best.

Vika played Dominika in Gold Coast earlier this year, I remember following it on livescore. Vika was very lucky to win that one!

I must say thats actually a very good result for Vika. I thought she may crumble after being down a set and 5-5 in the second, when your in that sort of position its incredible difficult to win! (Speaking a bit from personal experience, I lost probably 90% of matches in that situation!!!)

I think Eggy raised a valid point in another thread when he mentioned Vika is just simply struggling for rhythm/confidence since the return from injury. Its just going to take some time for that to return.
Disappointing to lose today ofcourse, but she can only learn from the experience.

Spiritof42
Apr 10th, 2008, 04:31 PM
Cibulkova never gives up, so I knew the 1st set wasn't over even at 4-0. Still disappointing, though. :sad:
Vika was broken 8 times for the 2nd match in a row. :( That, along with the blown leads, certainly points toward a lack of confidence. Let's hope she can find her groove back sooner than later.

Apr 12th, 2008, 04:37 AM
Azarenka, with her style of play, is bound to get more frustrated on clay. But from what I saw of her matches this week, she badly needs to get her emotions in check. The frequent acting out reminded me of the way Zvonareva used to be. I`m sure this isn`t helping her. Once that is taken care of she can challenge for the top as she has a lot of game.

I've yet to see Kvitova play, but judging from her recent results she's a dangerous yet unpredictable player with good firepower (not unlike Vika :)). I mean, she hands Peer a 3rd-set bagel in front of her Israeli home crowd and then loses in straight sets to Obziler. :scratch:
That said, Vika can definitely beat everyone in her half of the draw. A final against Vera Z would be nice.

I can't wait for Vika to finally win her first WTA singles title, but to be fair, she clearly wasn't the favorite in today's final, unlike Tashkent and Estoril last year (where she lost to Parmentier and Arn). Those were the most disappointing losses.

Great start from Vika. :bounce:
Had lots of BP opportunities today, and I suspect she'll also get a lot against Anna tomorrow. :o

Anna and Vika have met twice before. Anna leads the H2H 2-0, but has been struggling so far in 2008.
Anna has only played one match on red clay this year, beating Vania King in straight sets in Fed Cup, but it was a pretty hard-fought win against a lesser opponent. If they were meeting in a final my money would probably still be on Anna, but since this is a 2nd-round match I won't be surprised if Vika pulls this one off.

Good luck!

According to her website, she "suffered a left hamstring injury" during her last doubles match in Berlin (played on Saturday, only a couple hours after her loss to Safina in singles). She hasn't had much time to recuperate, but I suppose she knows what she's doing. At least she's not playing doubles this week.

Methinks Vika could reach the top 10 sooner than later, as long as she stays healthy.

She indeed looked very nice in the short "Superheroes" promotional video. Generally speaking, I tend to prefer women au naturel, but it's interesting to see her under a different light. She seems to have enjoyed doing it quite a bit. She hasn't done a lot of modeling so far, unlike some other players who are probably getting a bit jaded by now. :lol: I'm glad they decided to include many of the young up-and-comers in the campaign instead of limiting themselves to the more established glamour girls.

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.
