Hmm, this should be close. Assuming Azarenka is 100% I think she has a slight edge but it could easily go either way. I'm hoping for three sets and that we do not see the Wozniacki that lost to Zvonareva at the US Open.

Match is on Vika's racquet like most times they play. She can outplay Caro like she did in Memphis, but it depends whether she can finish her off or whether it will be like the YEC match where Vika was much the better player but choked.

Ironically you're one of the posters who open the most WWW threads. Its like you're slapping your own face.
Pushniacki has become Caro's nickname and has been used widely on this board.

The reason for a thread title to be changed doesn't neccessarily have to do with its insulting content. In this case my title was probably unclear cause not everyone knows who is Vuvuzela or Pushniacki.
And why the number of my posts in this thread has anything to do with your accusation that I'm desperate for attention. :confused:

Its a wierd match-up.

Vika doesnt normally lose to players who can't overpower her (unless her name is MJMS), sadly there are too many who can overpower her but Wozniacki is not one of them. Wozniacki does have a hard time against players who can manoeuvre her around the court, like Bepa, Marion etc. So it should be a bad match-up for Wozniacki.

But in this instance, Wozniacki does just about everything better than Vika, the only place where Vika has a marginal advantage is her returning and forehand (mainly because Wozniacki's forehand is that bad).

The Dawntreader
Sep 30th, 2010, 08:14 PM
I can't see Azarenka hitting through Wozniacki at all. It rarely happens against top players that Azarenka is put in a position of the 'aggressor', but in this instance, there is a bit of an illusion at work. Azarenka is an accumlative ball-striker, in the sense that she pounds from the baseline with above-average depth, until she finds an appropiate ball for a winner. It could just play right into Wozniacki's hands, giving her a suitable back-court rhytm, and eventually letting Azarenka slip into UE mode, trying to break out of her usual comfort zone.

It's not like Azarenk will be out-serving her either, so the immediacy of a weapon (that is needed against Wozniacki) is gone.

Wozniacki in 2. Unless Vika plays a stand-out match. And by stand-out, actually hitting out-right winners with regularity, which is increasingly rare for her.

When can Azarenka ever do this effectively? Her game is too rigid for this kind of gameplan.

She has done it plenty of times this year. She used this strategy a lot against Zvonareva at the AO and against Pova at Stanford. That's what she worked on during the off-season, what she is trying to imply in her game now and she does it pretty well if you ask me.

I counted the top 10 players' stats for this year about two weeks ago. Caroline was 4-4 against top 10 players at that stage. Yesterday's QF counts as a win, so she is now 5-4 for the year against the current top 10.
