Its pretty hard to lose to Martinez-Sanchez on a hardcourt especially when she is serving under 50%.

Still, Azarenka's serve is so mediocre, that anyone can hit return winners against her.

She really needs to get more pace and placement in that serve, she is tall enough and has strong shoulders :shrug:

Best result of the tournament!!! This was the first time these two girls have played each other and clearly Azarenka was not prepared to handle a player like MJMS who attacks the net like nobody else in the game. To have won this match Maria Jose must have attacked the net at every opportunity, early in the point, often off the serve or even the return to take Azarenka out of her usual game and nullify the quality of her groundstrokes. That she clearly pulled it off is pretty amazing.

So great to see a player prove that if you are good enough you can win even against the best players in the world by rushing the net.

MJMS can be a real handful for youngsters, particularly those facing her for the first time. Wozniacki had her share of problems losing to her in the final of Bastad last year. Sometimes MJ plays poorly and makes lots of errors, but when she plays well her game makes demands on players they are not used to. Vika is not really a ballbasher- I would define her game as one that relies heavily on strong baseline rhythm. She is a steady and slightly aggressive groundstroker. Against MJ this kind of rhythm does not exist, unless you impose it on her.

Also, Vika's serve, as I noted a couple of years ago, definitely lacks the power to help her set up aggressive rally situations against such players. She has been going for percentage serving for a good while now, and I think a change of direction is in order- she needs more free points from the serve to improve her level. She also, surprisingly to most, needs a little more power off the ground in order to be able to hit more clean winners on both sides.

However, given how psychologically uncomfortable it is to make real changes to one's game, there is a good chance that her passive percentage serving and her temperament- which needs to be calmer- will continue to prevent her from reaching the next level in her game.

I wish I could have actually seen the match though, in order to appreciate exactly what happened.
