Hope Vika will win, but i think Clijsters will with how she's been playing so far. Fingers crossed for Vika though :)

Wholeheartedly agreed.
That's why I didn't say Clijsters would necessarily win the match. ;)

Very wise;)

Much slower court than Toronto, and that match was veering in Azarenka's favour too for a while.

They have only ever played one time, with kim winning in 3 sets. So it's hard to say.

This will be a huge challenge for Vika...I really hope she can keep her head together and pull this out.

I could look up the stats first, but let's see what my gut says.

If CLijsters plays the best tennis she's capable of playing, she'll win. Obviously. But let's assume Clijsters plays 'B+' tennis. Good, not great. In that case, this is a pretty good test of Azarenka's mastery of her own game.

B+ Clijsters will nullify the Azarenka's normal game. Can Azarenka take her tools and game and use them in a new way? Can she actually construct points against a player as fast, and as experienced, as Clijsters?

If they both do what they normally do, Clijsters wins. If Azarenka shows up with a game plan, and the will and ability to execute it, she'll win unless Clijsters is 'lights out'.

Vika is all agression nad kim not so. Vika would have to be so patient if she is to win.

Inger67
Mar 29th, 2010, 04:57 AM
I suppose I won't mind if either win. But I would like to see a Vee/Kim final so I guess come on Clijsters! :)

Oh and I was surprised to see that Kim has only lost 3 games for 2 matches. This should be a REALLY good match if both play to their potential, but in the end I think Kim will be too much for Azarenka. After these points come off Azarenka will be #9 and nearly out of top 10 :eek:

I went with Vika on instinct, but my instincts have been known to be more wrong than right. :)

i think kim will win this but a vika win is also not a surprise...

Kim will win. But I'll be happy either way.

Come on Vika, you can do it.
Just be patient and attack on the right ball.

WowWow

Go Vika! :unsure:
I never thought I'd say that :sobbing:

Normally this is Kim's match to lose, especially after her convincing win over Peer, but if she implodes without warning as she did in Australia and Indian Wells...

Kim

It really depends on which Kim shows up. In the past, Kim was consistency personified. You could always depend on her to go far, especially on hardcourts, where her game is just spectacular. However, this year, Kim has been terribly up and down. Losing 6-0 6-1 to Petrova? At the Australian Open? And then screwing up so badly at Indian Wells?

If the normal Kim shows up, she'll win. But if "Get me the fuck outta here" Kim shows up, Azarenka just has to be smart and keep the ball in play to any one of Kim's wings.

Hoping for Kim to win though!

This is interesting.
Azarenka could be either one of Kim's bitches (Sharapova pre-2007) or a major nemesis (Sharapova 2007-now?).

Azarenka is ranked higher and is much more consistent nowadays - Vika in two

Azarenka could be either one of Kim's bitches (Sharapova pre-2007) or a major nemesis (Sharapova 2007-now?).
The difference is that Azarenka does not have Maria's serve. She also does not have nearly as much firepower on the forehand side.

As I said earlier, Kim really should win this. Vika isn't fast and doesn't have a killer serve.

She does, however, have the killer instinct.

Clijsters will have to play awful in order to lose this.

Now there's the rub. Comeback Kim is less predictable and more erratic than the original version, so who can say? I hope Kim will win. She can win, if she turns up mentally and physically on the day ...........................
