Vika plays her first match here, Sam her second after beating Sharapova. H2H 4-0 to Snickers without losing a set.

Prior to this tournament many people were saying, Sam would never beat Pova but would be able to beat Vika. I disagree, I think it's the other way around (I actually also thought Sam would never beat Pova...nor that she would ever beat Vika). Sam has beaten Pova, largely because the latter couldn't deal with her serve and slice at all (due to being rusty). Azarenka will have none of that, she'll redirect her BH slice junk and kicker at will + is in much better form coming into this tournament in comparison to Pova.

Vote + discuss.

Vika will be another story for Stosur... Vika doesn't give as much as Maria from the back court and second of all Vika's consistent aggressive returns a contrario to Maria's aggressive but risky if not very risky ones should really give Sam a different look... we'll see.

Vika is not having any of of Stosur's serves, she'll send it right back to her.

It feels like anything can happen now :lol: But Vika seems to be in good form so it will be presumably much more difficult for Sam to deal with her. I think Vika will prevail.

This is a tough one to call. I never really understand why Azarenka was such a tough matchup for Stosur to the extent that I understand why Sharapova was. I also have only seen one of their matches. Stosur will be feeling very confident after beating her nemisis Sharapova in straight sets, and is not likely to have any mental trepidation of this matchup anymore (if she ever did). Still Azarenka is playing well now and will probably feel like she can go 3-0 in this group now.

Still Sam in 3 I guess.

Well...I was wrong in the last poll (Sharapova vs Stosur with Stosur in 3). This time I would say Sam in 2 - 6:1 7:5 :lol:

I want them both to get through to the Semi...
I guess I want Vika to win the one, and both to win thier next matches...

Is it just me who thinks this scheduling is unfair to Sam? How come they made her play the last match and then the opener in the next day against an opponent who hasn't played at all? I know Vika isn't that fresh, but still... :shrug: Considering how bad her H2H is against these two (Masha & Vika, even though she managed to win today), it almost looks like they wished Sam to get knocked out in the group stage as soon as possible. :o :tape:

Fanboyism at its best. :hearts: If we all followed your logic, Azarenka would win every single match she played. :lol:

Sam has outdone herself this year, winning a slam final, beating players she's never beaten before, so I guess anything is possible. If her game clicks, probably another straight sets win.:eek:

Well nobody thought Sammy could beat Sharapova, so anythings possible. :eek:

That said, Azarenka has been playing superbly of late, so i've gone for Vika in 2.

Hope im wrong, go Sam! :cheer:

Vika hasn't been playing mug tennis like Masha lately.So yeah,Vika. :angel:

Tough one to call, I voted for Sam in 3 but to be honest anything is possible. As some have pointed out Vika poses different challenges than Masha, but if Sam has shown anything the last couple of months is that she's no longer the 1-dimensional player she used to be. She has different game plans for different opponents, and it won't surprise me if she plays quite differently today compared to yesterday. Whether that'll be enough to beat Vika is anybody's guess. I hope so.

I am so delusional that I am rooting and praying Stosur to bitchslap Vikaria in 2 so that my Mashenka still has a chance to reach SFs :sobbing:

Sam will cruise today. no need to beat herself up trying to win this with one win already and a 5-0 h2h over Na Li. 2 wins should secure qualification.
