Vika, repeat this scoreline, please. :angel:
The only think that worries me about Niculescu is that she's a junkballer and gives no rhythm and that can be very annoying.

wat do u guys think, can she reach the final? I am so excited as well as scared about Venus in the quarters:scared:
She definitively can and will do it, I'm convinced more than ever that this her moment... but always that but, as always with Vika it really really depends to her head - form is ok, tennis is ok... - Pironkova IMO has the perfect anti-Venus game at the highest... Svet gives the American absolutely 0 rhythm, pace and height to work with she really bugs Venus' contact points thus her rhythm with her different mixes... Decoturf is perfect for Svet since she doesn't need to generate her own pace since the balls come very fast perfect for her thats why I think that match if it happens will definitively be an indicator for Venus furthermore Svet with Kvitova are the upset queens just to only suck till the next slam and upset...

P.S Btw do you all play the USO bracket challenge ? I always play that but never come out with the good draw. :o I hope this very time I get this right with a predicted Vika/Rad final. :angel: My quaters Masha/Anna C., Vika/Pennetta, Sam/Kimmie and Rad/Görges - my upsets Lil' Maria def. Kuzzie and Kanepi def. Jelena. My secret upset Ana def. Kimmie that would be nice for Ana and a gratifying help to Vika's quest for the trophey. :worship:

I've not got anything against Safina, I just meant if Vika had any aspirations of winning USO doubles you'd think she'd partner someone she has a decent record with or even someone she's at least partnered before. It'd probably be a bad idea for her to go far in doubles anyway if she's going to have a good singles run because she'l need the days rest inbetween matches particularly if she's struggling with a blister :lol:

Drama for nothing, that second set is just world class lol Vika really seems to struggle against players like Nicu junking tennis style... Dulko hopefully has a more common style of play so Vika I hope will show a more convincing win than this. Vika you almost crushed my dreams please keep your head under control ! Come on ! :cheer:

Nice third set, Vika. :yeah:

allrounder
Aug 30th, 2010, 10:58 PM
I dunno about Vika but i'm glad i've got 2 days to recover from that ordeal :lol:

I thought originally that I couldn't see her making as many unforced errors against Dulko on a hardcourt as she did at RG, but after the performance in the second set i'm a little more worried but still quietly confident Vika will get the job done :) It was strange how she was passive in the second set and when she did go for something she more often than not UE'd when she had looked in a different league in the first set and Niculescu didn't exactly raise her game much if at all.

The root of her problem was her serve again and her lack of confidence in it and when that happens the rest of her game seems to get dragged down with it as soon as the DF's start to mount. Luckily for her though Niculescu wasn't really aggressive on the return of serve and she got away with just puffballing it in the middle of the service box for most of the match. Needless to say she's got to up her game in round 2 though.

hurricanejeanne
Aug 31st, 2010, 12:52 AM
It really seemed that her serve fell apart in the second set, especially in the later stages, after Niculescu started to hit really high moonballs/lob attempts and Vika shanked everyone of those and it hurt her confidence and trickled into her serve when she was trying to stay in that second set.

I do think Vika thought that it would be easy again today like their previous matches and she let off the gas in the second, that Niculescu would just moonball and defend and she could just power her way to the win, which she did in the first and third sets. The second set I feel like she, on top of getting anxious about the serve and overheads, got confused in her game plan. She stopped going for it when she had chances too.

Against Dulko, she knows she has a tough one, and that this isn't some junkballer (yeah, Dulko will moonball Vika :p) but she knows Dulko will be confident against her since she won their last match up. But I feel like if Vika plays like she did in the bookended sets, she can beat Dulko. She just has to avoid a service hickup that lasts for two games.

Aug 31st, 2010, 12:58 AM
Okay so this was my take on it being there.

Niculescu was a fucking WALL. Excuse my English :) but seriously. THE GIRL GOT EVERYTHING. It was unbelivable. I was sitting next to a rather large and rowdy group of Romanian fans so that didn't help matters. I don't know if you guys heard me on the stream :lol: I was trying to shout over them...I was the girl saying "Vika, put her away." "Vika, you got this" :lol:
But seriously she's really annoying. I felt bad for her and I wanted to see her win a game :lol: BUT THEN THE FAKE GRUNTING STARTED. Ugh. Enough said. And I really can't figure Niculescu out. She was warming up with two hands on both sides, but all she did was slice and junkball her FH the whole match. She came over about 5 in the whole match, and THEY WERE ONE HANDED. I was extremely confused. She was moonballing the whole time, and Vika was dealing with it...up until the second set. But we can pretend that never happened.

And looking at these pictures, my friend was right. I'm not a very good picture taker. But they're not awful! Enjoy guys. :)

Oh and by the way, I liked her outfit. I thought it was cute. :)

I am so happy I'm not the only one who thought she was fake grunting and it seemed as the match progressed she was trying to mock Vika's grunt. Niculescu is a junkballer, I guess that's the best way to describe her. She's extremely lucky Vika went off her game for a few games in the second set and gifted her that set.

You and me both. I've seen people collapse with their appendixes before and I personally have fainting issues and that was way too similar for comfort.

Did anyone think she just looked dead in warm up? And then she stopped grunting which I don't recall her ever doing in the past. It just cannot be the heat, she's only had one other heat related incidient in her past and she's always done well in hot conditions.

If her appendix is fine, I pray that it is, then her heat illness could be so far gone that her body is rejecting everything she put in it.

Poor baby, please, please get well soon Vika. :hug::sobbing:

She went out on court, and after the third game it was 0-3 the doctor and trainer came out. They were checking her vitals and someone else posted their commentators said it could be an appendix problem. at 0-4 she went to serve and wiffed at it. Like swung and missed at the toss. Then 1-5 was when she fainted and had to be wheeled off court.

Apparently the diagnosis is heat stroke/exhaustion but we aren't sure yet.

Victoria Azarenka collapsed and fell to the ground while chasing down a routine forehand and had to be taken off the court in a wheelchair Wednesday, a half-hour into her match on another steamy day at the U.S. Open.

The 10th-seeded Belarusian was trailing Gisela Dulko 5-1 in the first set on the Grandstand court, where the temperature had reached 90 degrees with 42 percent humidity by 11:30 a.m.

Tournament officials gave no immediate update on her condition. About an hour after the match was called, her agent said Azarenka was being transported to the hospital. Dulko said Azarenka was conscious and responding when she walked over to make sure everything was OK.

Wearing an all-black tennis dress, Azarenka had been moving slowly throughout the match and didn’t appear to twist or sprain anything when she fell to the ground. Medical personnel rushed out and yelled to the sideline to bring water. After a few minutes on the ground, being sheltered by an umbrella, Azarenka was helped into the wheelchair and moved off the court, with a trainer placing his hand on her neck to check her pulse.

“I was scared,” said Dulko, who advanced to the third round. “She went to the floor. I was worried for her. I went to see her, brought some ice, did whatever I could do to help.”

Dulko said the conditions were, indeed, brutal, though as of 12:30 p.m., tournament officials had not put in place their extreme weather policy, the way they did on Tuesday, when temperatures reached into the mid-90s. It was expected to be as hot Wednesday.

“It’s tough to play out there,” Dulko said. “It’s really hot, really humid. You sweat so much, sometimes it’s impossible to hold the racquet.”

To be honest me too I also had that feeling at first thats why I was doubtful on the heat... I clearly felt like Vika was desoriented... when she did that half volley she just stood their dribbling, staring or I don't exactly know what she was doing... when she was asking for the balls too just not conscisouly there... these conditions really didn't help either...

When its sunny and rains in the same time which often happens in the carribbean... the water evaporates with the sun and its very difficult to breathe like you're suffocating... even in the shade you're having problems... we generally have very dry heat but bearable almost just like in Australia.

Naturally Vika would have wanted to play, but if someone falls in an odd way would they not consult a doctor immediately to see if she was alright? Or maybe they did but didn't think it was that bad.

From the tournament: "She was taken to a nearby hospital for diagnostic testing. Out of respect to her privacy, we can not give any more details. However, we can say that this does not seem to be primarily a heat-related illness."

Privacy reasons makes it sound like she hasn't been diagnosed at all. And the USTA can't say anything unless Vika (or if she's unable to, her next of kin - her mother) allows them to.

I would think concussion when I hear headache. But, "Out of respect to her privacy..."
That's the one that gets me. I never know what that means. Like is it something they don't want to share or do they not know?

I know you didn't mean it but I kinda wish you hadn't phrased it that way...:help: I'm getting way too paranoid.

Hopefully she just had a huge migraine.
I have these terrible migraine often and I can say that my vision gets blurry. But nothing to say about my arm.

I didn't feel like posting about it but actually I almost fainted in quite a similar way like 3 weeks ago. Felt dizzy, almost couldn't see and starting falling down, luckily the person I was with caught me. But that was because I forgot to take a painkiller during my period :o As JJ would say, "It's not easy to be a woman", but I am just mentioning it trying to find less dramatic reasons for Vika's collapse :sobbing:
Wait. "Out of respect to her privacy" might be something related to her period. :unsure:

It's just that she's probably still in the hospital and they can't give any detailed information until she/her team allows it.

:hug:
I'm a chronic fainter because of low-blood sugar issues and usually I don't realize I'm about to faint until it's far to late. But the few times I've fainted and realized it was happening I get really dizzy and my vision gets blurry and I start to "zone out". And the next thing I know I'm on the ground, confused, and usually really sore. It's the worse feeling in the world not having control over your body and it puts so much doubt in your head everytime you get a headache or move too fast and get dizzy. I'd be relieved if Vika only has hypoglycemia like me, it's extrememly managable.

The privacy makes me more think that it might be too serious of a situation to share with the medias and puclic in the immediate times... I really don't know what to think anymore... I just hope by the end of the day things will be clearer.

I'm extremely paranoid, I hate doctors and hospitals myself so the idea of them scares me. But I meant it more along the lines of Vika being too out of it/on medication and IV's and she can't give an official statement because most hosptials don't allow people outside of family in the rooms, especially in the emergency room and sometimes they won't even allow that. So odds are, Vika's on a bed with a bunch of IV's in her going from test to test while her mother and coach and camp are sitting in the waiting room scared just as much as we are.

Don't worry about it. My cousin walked by as they read that statement and her comments were probably along the lines of what you're thinking. Or not.

Yes it was someone's Twitter. Nothing official. Just gossip.

Anything's possible at this point. I expect a lot of gossip as long as there's silence from Vika's camp.

If that is the case, aboslutely unacceptable. Even Natasha Richardson when she fell skiing. Look what happened there.

There have been soooo many instances you'd think they'd take precautions.
