By the way, did anyone here watch Vika's R2 AO match vs. Voegele that was uploaded to Uploadbox.com?

Tough times for Vikaholics like us :lol:

Is Henin going to be seeded in IW, or will they be content to let her land anywhere in the draw, like at the AO?
If so, I hope she won't be drawn too close to Vika.

Henin can't be seeded. She isn't even ranked yet. You need to play at least 3 tournaments to get a ranking

Spiritof42
Mar 8th, 2010, 12:13 PM
I know that. I was simply wondering whether there should be some flexibility with the seeding system in cases like this (I'm thinking of Wimbledon, where players are not always seeded purely according to ranking). Henin is a former world #1 and IW champion, and has reached the finals of the two tournaments she's played since her comeback. She'll probably be one the betting favorites.

Well she avoided both Kim and Justine in the early stages which was the main worry. Wickmayer was probably the best 4R she could have got out of the possibilities other than maybe Petrova. From the QF onwards any tier 1 will be tough though really unless the draw opens up bigtime. Compared to draws she was getting after Wimbledon last year this one doesn't look bad at all :lol:

Vika appears to have chosen Marbella as her MM tournament for the first half of the year as TBE said she's on the entry list for it. This'l mean she'l be playing 5 weeks out of 7 up until RG (Marbella, Charleston, Stuttgart, Rome, Madrid) and will also mean she'l be going from Miami to Marbella, then back to US for Charleston the next week. What is she hoping to gain from doing that? :weirdo: unless the WTA have forced her to play at least 1 MM as a promotional commitment for a top 10er but Serena is also playing Marbella :confused: I hope she see's sense and withdraws if she can after she's retained her Miami title :lol:

Should be easy for the first three rounds. Wickmayer, Hantuchova (IW GOAT), and Oudin can be tricky in R4, but she has a great chance at defending her title. Ivanovic, Zvonareva, and Pavlyuchenkova in QF's, all semifinalists or better last year :scared:

I'm not sure Vika's path to the QF will be as easy as some people seem to think. Call me a pessimist, but I believe Martinez Sanchez could potentially give Vika some trouble in R3. I don't think Vika's ever played her before, and her unusual style (leftie s & v, dropshots à outrance) could give her fits if she's not ready. Wickwayer could be a challenge as well, though the quality of her performance is often hard to predict... at the AO she came very close to losing against the likes of Sema or Dulgheru, and yet gave Henin a real run for her money later on in the tournament.

Bit disappointing that Vika's not playing doubles this year. I suppose teaming up with Zvonareva to defend last year's title might have been a bit awkward because of the coaching situation, but I was expecting her to play with Kuznetsova, like earlier this year. Sveta isn't in the doubles draw either, and meanwhile Vera is partnering Safarova... that one looks like a last-minute arrangement to me.

Spiritof42
Mar 10th, 2010, 07:47 AM
On a different note, I see Vika's still very active on Twitter. Her latest post:

i also did bag check after my practise!for tennis channel! its gonna be funny when u guys see it:)
about 12 hours ago via mobile web

So, something to look forward to. She seems to enjoy interacting with fans, often asking random questions and such. It's almost enough to make me create my own Twitter account. Almost.

Every time she writes "love u guys", I can't help but think of this:

I don't think anyones suggesting it will be easy, this is Vika we're talking about afterall :lol: As i said in my previous post it's more of a relief she hasn't got any of Justine, Kim or Sharapova in her path before the QF stage because that would have made it far worse. Vika should really be able to beat MJMS on a hard court though unless she plays a really bad match, if it was on clay i'd be slightly more worried. As for Wickmayer, isn't she currently on a 3 match losing streak if you don't count FED cup? She also has the possiblity of facing both Safarova and probably Hantuchova/Oudin too before getting to Vika which could both be very tricky matches for her which there's no guarantee she'l come through with her current form.

Marbella :help: Does she really have to play one? She should play Copenhagen in the 2nd half :angel:
I'm not sure what the rules are on top 10ers with international events but i think all of them apart from Sveta played at least one last year. There seems to be some confusion on the tournaments forum over whether she's actually playing Marbella or not because TBE said she's on the entry list but according to the tourny site she's not on the player list that's been released :confused: I really hope she isn't playing there because it makes no sense with her playing Charleston the next week. No chance of her playing Copenhagen though i'm sorry to say, I don't think Piotr will want another top 10er there who's a serious threat to Caro winning her home MM title in it's first year :haha: She's playing in San Diego that week I think.

a top10 player is allowed to play one international before Wimbledon and one after Wimbledon. No more than that and they don't have to.
I really hope Vika doesn't play Marbella, it is very unlike her to play that many tournaments in a row. Last year she withdrew from Charleston with what I am guessing was a fake/not-so-serious-injury because getting to SF in Indian Wells and then winning Miami was a lot of matches in short time. I don't see her going far in those two events and then playing for two more weeks. I would be very surprised

Break My Rapture
Mar 10th, 2010, 05:21 PM
I agree with Christina, Marbella would be a bad decision. :shrug:

I think we won't see Vika playing a MM tournament before Wimbledon this year. After Miami, I think she's playing every Premier clay tournament (Charleston, Stuttgart, Rome and Madrid) except Warsaw. And those 4 clay tournaments alone must be enough preparation towards the FO.

My best guess for Vika playing a MM tournament would be either one of the grass MMs or Seoul. :shrug: But I think the chance is very slim she's playing 1 this year.

Vika has big chance to gain a lot of points at Charleston, Stuttgart and Madrid too with basically nothing to defend at any of them which would make playing Marbella seem even more silly. The Marbella tournament site released the player list with only 23 players on though with Vika missing so hopefully she already has withdrawn.

Actually, the very first time I saw Vika play in person was against Bammer, and Vika lost in three, basically self-destructing after dominating the first set :o. But that was a long time ago (2006), when Vika was still very young and, dare I say it, a bit immature :angel:. I was also there the last time they played each other outside Fed Cup (2008 Rogers Cup), and Vika won that one handily; I expect more of the same tomorrow. I hope it's not too windy though.

It was actually one of the reasons why MoritaMania got banned according to him, I've spoken to him outside of TF ;)

According to some people on Yanina's forum here and on her official forum, most people in Belgium don't know that she wasn't home to see her letters and they just think she cheated :shrug:

And if you don't want to know a lot, then I doubt you know about her horrible draws, since I'm assuming she wasn't famous in Belgium a year ago. Everyone talks about her cakewalk draw at the USO, but she deserved it since she got so many bad draws in other tournaments :shrug:

Well, TennisTV's match schedule for tomorrow is now available, and they'll only show the two WTA matches played on center court.
Naturally, on the men's side they'll cover every singles match from the three stadiums, as usual. :rolleyes:

Stadium 2
11:00 Juan Monaco v Juan Carlos Ferrero
Fb SEWTA Match - no TV
Fb Guillermo Garcia-Lopez v Thomaz Bellucci
Fb Tomas Berdych v Fernando Verdasco

Stadium 3
11:00 WTA Match - no TV
Fb SEWTA Match - no TV
Fb SEWTA Match - no TV
Fb Brian Dabul v Ivan Ljubicic

So they won't be showing Vika's match (or Vera's, or any of the WTA matches on court 3), but on the other hand I'll get to see the likes of Garcia-Lopez vs. Bellucci and Dabul vs. Ljubicic. :woohoo: :weirdo:

Seriously, if I were the WTA I'd be more than a bit embarrassed right now.

Apart from the fact that Vika is the highest seed in action tomorrow, I think Stadium 1 is the only court to have hawkeye video replay. That, IMO, is reason enough for wanting Vika to play over there.

Told you Martinez Sanchez might give Vika trouble.

But the really painful part was seeing her come back from a double break down, only to lose in a tie-break. Vika was barely winning any points off Martinez Sanchez's serve early on, so that was an amazing come back from 2-5. But then it all went wrong again. :sobbing:

I don't think I'll ever follow a Vika match on a live scoreboard again. The emotional roller coaster of the first set almost killed me. I could literally feel my blood pressure rising.

This tournament has been :weirdo: so far, especially on the women's side. Unlike most of you, I'm also a Wozniacki fan, so I still have something to look forward to (though she almost didn't make it past R2). But I'm still really depressed right now.

Can't believe she lost though as she rarely loses to anybody without a fight especially players ranked outside of the top 20 :sad: It feels like a big opportunity lost with the seeds that have gone out, i hope she can get back to form in Miami because she needs a SF there at least really and possibly a final to keep a healthy lead in the top 8 going into clay season.

I think we can agree that Vika in all likelihood didn't play a great match. I'm just saying that her opponent's particular style must be factored into the equation, especially considering it's an opponent she had never faced before. Vika likes to get into a good rhythm rallying from the baseline, and MJMS probably didn't give her a lot of that. Instead, what Vika probably got was a lot of drop shots, slices and leftie serve & volleying. MJMS's overall 1st serve percentage wasn't great, but I think it was higher in the beginning of the match. It clearly took a while for Vika to get a better grip on it, and by then she was already in a pretty deep hole.

Vika did a somewhat better job on return as the match went on (MJMS's nerves might also have played a part when she was trying to serve the 1st set out). I can certainly imagine Vika having a bit of a mental letdown in the beginning of the 2nd set, after expending so much energy on her ultimately fruitless comeback. That said, that 6-2 scoreline is still very disappointing. Vika's own stats on serve are worrying, especially in the 2nd set. Almost 90% of first serves in, but barely over 40% points won? We all know the serve is not the strongest part of her game, but these are almost Camille Pin-esque numbers. :help: What were MJMS's tactics on return? Going for dropshots (even on ROS) and other no-pace junk right from the start, like I've seen her do before? Whatever it was, it worked. I hope Vika has learned from the experience and comes better prepared the next time she faces her.

allrounder
Mar 16th, 2010, 11:49 AM
Vika's serving stats are indeed worrying, it's the only area of her game IMO that's stopping her being a big slam contender at the moment. 84% of 1st serve's in is nice but only winning just over 50% of the points on it suggests she was probably just puffballing it down the middle of the service box like she often gets into a habit of doing and not going for cheap points :mad: Everyone's allowed a bad day every now and again but i just wish it wasn't at a PM :sad: A lot of pressure on her at Miami now :scared: Only positive is the players likely to be climbing the rankings fast (Henin, Clijsters and Masha) also went out early.

Anyway i'm sure Sam will inform us of what happened in the match when he's back.

HowardH
Mar 16th, 2010, 12:00 PM
I don't like this super high percentage serving thing. It's so passive and wastes the opportunity you have to take control of the point with a good first serve. 84% is too high, it's on the point of being greedy- you have to give a little to get some. You have to be willing to miss a few- 65% in is fine- in order to get more free points. Will she ever learn this? She obviously really dislikes missing the serve and isn't that hungry for aces, so maybe she won't. :shrug: You also need a strong enough second serve to handle having to face a few more second serve points- the weakness of her second serve is probably one reason why she does not dare to go for more on the first. If her second delivery was stronger she could go for the first without fear.

Having said that, MJMS is a very uncomfortable opponent to play. She can play very poorly and miss a lot sometimes, but when she plays well she makes demands on players they are not used to. Caro had her share of problems against her when she lost the Bastad final last year.

allrounder
Mar 16th, 2010, 12:10 PM
Sometimes theres very little difference between her first and second serves - like between about 5 and 8 mph :o The problem with serving is that it's something that often just comes naturally to you and you're either good at it or not and it's hard to make radical changes to it and feel comfortable with it. If she's going to improve it she'l need to probably refine her service action a bit because at the moment she's not really putting her full body weight through it to give her the power she needs to make it a weapon. When i watch her play sometimes i'm often more confident of her breaking serve than holding unless she's playing the like's of the WS :help:

Welcome1
Mar 16th, 2010, 12:58 PM
Really, this is a big problem. When she was playing her last match with Serena, there were a lot of moments where Serena just kill the balls after Vika's serve, especially in the 3rd set. Vika just did'n know what to do. Of course, Vika won't be able to serve like Vee or smth, but she has 1.8 and it's enough to have a good solid serve. Sam must do smth.

I think when she was younger her serve was not necessarily much better than now, but it was pretty good for her age. The rest of her game has improved quite a lot but the serve has not, it has possibly even gone a little backwards. Basically, Vika has practised a lot of high percentage serving. It has become a core part of her game plan and it has worked well, taking the pressure off her second serve and allowing her to rise to a career high. Her percentages have gone higher and higher so clearly this is something she has worked at. But she has not worked so much on hitting harder more deadly serves.

Now she is at the stage where this percentage serving cannot take her any further. Even Caro is learning to go a bit more for the serves, and she really hates missing anything. But after a couple of years of using this strategy it is very difficult for her now to imagine going for the serve. She has become accustomed to the feeling of tossing it up and just safely starting the rally, it's a comfortable feeling, whereas actually going for the serve is scary. It's like if you have a good serve and you play fed cup or davis cup with a hostile crowd, they cheer every time you miss a first serve, but you don't succumb to them and start just spinning the first serve in to avoid the jeers and cheers, because you know that hitting powerful first serves is an important part of the gameplan, you know that you can handle the pressure of hitting second serves anyway, and in the end you still land enough good serves to win.

Vika played really bad last night. All her shots were going either long or in the net. She kind of looked uninterested in the first set but started getting into when she fought back. But a lot of bad calls (and trust me they were bad :rolleyes:) got to her and she played an awful TB. Then she was completely out of the 2nd set. She kept looking at mom, so many missed easy volleys, and stopped moving well. She let out a few bad words and this douche bag said "warning" and Vika's mom looked at him and said something :lol: Yeah most of you can see it, her serve was really ineffective, so few points. But to be fair MJMS played really well, she was defending well and seemed to be hitting harder than Vika at times, and she got a lot of free points on her serve. That's all I have for now, I'll try to think of more later and give you guys some juicy pics :p

Her serve has been all over the place these last few months. In Sydney, she was doublefaulting all over the place but it looked a lot better in Melbourne and in Dubai. And it didn't help that MJSM is one of those wacky, old school variety time of players who give even the great players trouble.

Just meh. I agree she doesn't get her body weight into her serve (which in general is a nice motion) and that's why she has the capabilities of having a great serve and yet it's just decent. I just hope she's in a better place mentally come Miami, so many freakin' points to defend. :scared:

Victoria Azarenka

INDIAN WELLS, CALIFORNIA

V. AZARENKA/S. Bammer
6-1, 7-5

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. How did you feel about your performance?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Um, I felt pretty good today. You know, first match, especially here is always tough. But overall, I think it was a good match.
Sybille is a good player, and I was happy with my performance.

Q. So what's the key about her? She's a veteran player, plays a little bit of a different style.
VICTORIA AZARENKA: I think that these courts really suit her game because the ball bounce high and it's pretty slow. So for her, I think it's one of the best surfaces.
So for me, I had to adjust my game a little bit and try to not let her play the way she likes.

Q. So did you play a little more patiently and wait for your opportunities to hit the bigger ball?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Um, yeah. I did that, and I also tried, you know, to step into the court, try to take some volleys, and obviously she doesn't feel comfortable with that.
But, I mean, she battled pretty good in the second set.

Q. So coming to net and taking volleys is sort of a new step for you, to do it consistently. Are you feeling more comfortable doing it now?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Definitely. I've been doing it since the beginning of the year. If you saw any of my matches, I do that more and more. I think it makes me a tougher player.

Q. You're doing it because you feel like what, it's the next stage or it's easier to close out points or what? Be more all around?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Well, I think I'm just getting more points sometimes this way, and I'm -- I think I'm pretty good at the net. I just haven't used it as much.

Q. So do you have to force yourself to get up there, or is it starting to come more naturally?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: No, it's more natural now. You know, your choice is always to do the best, so if you choose to go to the net, you gotta go.

Q. So talk to me about your results this year. You've had pretty good results, but some tough losses there. Just where do you feel you are in general?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: You know, I'm in the very happy place myself mentally. I played really good this year. I lost to top 10 girls, and, well, you know, it happens. I lost to pretty much three champions of the tournaments, so it was good, you know.
Even the losses I took a lot of positive things from it, and just extra motivation to work, go and work harder and just work on your mistakes.

Q. So do you feel like you're really close to beating Elena or Serena or Venus maybe on a consistent basis, because you're a top 6 player now, too.
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Yeah, I think so. I have very close matches. I beat Serena and I beat Dementieva before. I think I'm really close to there. It's just another step that I have to take, you know, to be able to play good matches more consistently. I don't know. I think I'm doing pretty well. I'm happy.

Q. So is it more experience that you're looking for more than anything?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Yeah, definitely. There are some -- there are a few more things that I'm learning about myself that I have to, you know, use it more. So we'll see how it goes.

Q. With this event so close to Arizona, do you have some friends and family that are able to come down and cheer you on locally here?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Oh, well, my friends, which are my second family, are not in Arizona right now. They are in Edmonton in cold weather, and it's too bad they cannot come.
Actually, that's why I haven't been there for a while. But a lot of my other friends came from New York, and my mom is here. So it's good.

Q. Do you feel better playing when you have friends and family around, or is it easier if you don't have the friends and family around?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: No, I always like to have them, you know. Tennis is my job, of course, but the family and friends is the most important. So whenever they're around, it's always pleasant for me to have them.

Q. So I guess it's going pretty well with Sam. It's going well your coach?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Yeah, it's going really well. We have fun. We laugh all the time, and the results are pretty good.

Q. Great match. I watched it. You were very focused today and really had control of what was going on. So I wonder, second set, 4-2, and then you got down about three games. What was going on in your mind then?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Well, you know, everybody can miss the ball and everything. I was really focused, but I think I just lost a little bit of focus because she made couple of mistakes, and maybe I shut down mentally a little bit myself.
But I got back right away after those three games and pumped myself up to close out. I think it's not about how you play during the match, it's about how you finish the match. I finished the match well, so I'm proud of myself.

Q. It was great to watch.
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Thank you.

Q. Are you going to be playing more doubles in the future? I know you're not playing this week. Are you going to play doubles in Miami?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: No, not in Miami, but definitely more doubles in Grand Slams and stuff. It's just, you know, hard if you do well to play singles and doubles back to back four weeks in a row.
From here on my schedule is going to be pretty hard, so I have to save some energy.

Q. What are you doing in the clay court season schedule-wise?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: I'm playing Marbella after here, and Charleston next...

Q. Marbella is going to be your one smaller event during the six months?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Yes.

Q. Marbella, Charleston, and then Rome, Madrid...
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Stuttgart, Rome, Madrid. So we'll see. We'll see if I can handle it.

What a :weirdo: decision. Surely the WTA is not forcing her to go there? Are they paying her a $500K appearance fee?
"We'll see if I can handle it". Is she trying to burn herself out before the French Open? If she absolutely insists on playing such a heavy schedule, she should go to Ponte Vedra instead of flying to Spain and coming back to the USA the following week.

Dam i was hoping it was just a misunderstanding that she was playing Marbella or that she'd withdrawn when she wasn't on the player list released to the press :( I'd rather she skipped that and just played Charleston because she needs as many points as she can get now she's dropped a few in IW and will probably lose a fair amount in Miami too. Charleston doesn't have an amazingly strong field for a premier event and she can only get a maximum of 280 points from Marbella. Her bodyclock is going to be about as stable as her head during one of her tantrums :help: The only good thing is Marbella does tend to be 1 of the internationals that has a live stream from the beginning until the end of the event, or did at least last year.

It's still a lot especially on clay which is probably the most tiring surface with all the long points. She'l be changing surfaces each tourny aswell from Miami to Stuttgart. Playing that many times before RG could really make her feel a bit jaded if she has good runs in some of them. Charleston and Stuttgart are good opportunities for her to gain points too because she has next to nothing to defend there. Rome is the only place where she has anything of note to defend during the clay season so Marbella's probably a bit unnecessary inbetween with all the travel and little to gain other than $ i imagine.

wow heavy schedule for clay, I wonder why! I am seriously thinking about going to the tournament in Stuttgart right now.
Why not, it has a great field for a tier 2 this year :hearts: Stuttgarts always been 1 of my favourite toruny's too but i prefered it when it was on indoor hardcourt :sad:

Well with Marbella she would get a head start on the European red clay court season. Charleston is green clay and won't be much in way of preparation for Roland Garros. That's why would rather her cut out Charleston over Marbella.

The courts at Miami usually play a lot quicker and lower bouncing than IW so it should suit Vika's game a lot more.

I really think Vika can get revenge on MJMS. Like Craig said, the Miami courts are a lot faster than the IW courts which is in Vika's advantage now.

But first let's focus on her R2 opponent: Ralu vs Dulgheru is on today so Vika will play on Thursday I think. :)

USO wasn't easy :confused: hers was the half of the draw that didn't collapse, even if she hadn't lost to Schiavone she would have still had to have beaten Li Na, Clijsters and Serena to make the final. IW was probably the kindest draw she's had at a big event for about a year though. If Laura Robson can beat MJMS in straight sets i see no reason why Vika shouldn't be able to.

It's Dulgheru, who beat Olaru easily. Dulgheru is the equivalent of a bye on a hardcourt. Really. She's a bit better on clay. MJMS is the first serious challenge. I will be shocked if she manages to lose more than 3 games in any set against Dulgheru.

5 games lost against Dulgheru is still too much. :o

I didn't follow the match, but looking at the stats there was a noticeable change in Vika's numbers on serve between the two sets.
In the first, she was apparently happy to just put the ball in play, as she usually does these days. In the second the 1st serve percentage went down quite a bit, but she won 16/17 1st serve points. Did she suddenly decide to start serving more aggressively?

Lucie is very dangerous....but I am much happier Vika is playing her rather than MJMS.

Agreed. Safarova can be very hot and cold, but she plays a much more straightforward brand of tennis than MJMS. A brand of tennis Vika is more used to and, I think, more comfortable with. Still, it would have been interesting to see how she would have dealt with the Spaniard this time.

Yeah she's gonna need to make a lot of first serves. I don't trust her second serve at the moment. And she needs to be patient and not let Kim's great defensive skills frustrate her.

That's a good confidence-boosting win against Lucie, Vika. :yeah: well done!

Good luck against Kim, take revenge. :hearts:

Rain again ? :bigcry:

Really the climate in Miami sucks.

Probably not, Andreas said that they will show Venus vs Dani now and even if it's a short match, I doubt that they will stay to show Vika. :sad:

The match was moved to court 1. No transmition at all! :mad:
Damn Venus e Hatuchova! Just because you can't play a fast game, it has to be a more than 2h one. :fiery:

court 1? where did u see that?:o

I was watching venus x hantuchova match here in Brazil and this guy said that her match would be in court 1. This channel would broadcast the match, now they broadcasting other thing that I don't want to see what is.

VIKA?
