vika played well, congrats.

Didn't see the first set but stupid errors cost Vera the 2nd. It was nice to see her play aggressively though. Good luck on the clay.

Maybe the 1st set went by too quickly, but I was dying to see another Bepa meltdown. She seemed shockingly composed for her flat performance and the embarrassing scoreline. Well done by Azarenka. I was more impressed with her game yesterday, but in this form, Sharapova has no chance.

My only complaint with this match was the empty stands.

what do you expect when Zvonareva is playing?

gaurentee for empty stands = Vera, Jankovic or Wozniacki match

and if any of them are playing each other, a 5 mile radius is empty

Hell yes! Vika was awesome - she was hitting very deep, not missing and making Vera's positioning really awkward. Granted, Vera wasn't playing well, but I like to think Vika's play had to do with it. Hope she can win the title!

tennis commentators and experts who interview her always try to compliment her new found "mental toughness," but I just don't see any changes if things aren't going her way. She is just playing better technically but the volatile emotion is always there. Bepa is not as clownish as Rafa because she doesn't fake crap which I love about her. If she hates the situation she is in mentally, that racket is going to know about it.

What the hell? I havent seen the match either but the one against Clijsters Vika was amazing. Thatīs the best Iīve seen her play. She took the ball so early, defended and attacked great, returned brilliantly - put so much pressure on Kimīs serve, moved well. There was absolutely nothing in the match you could be not happy about in Vikaīs game. If that was far away from her best then Serena will be the second best player very soon if Vika ever plays her very best :lol:

I'm so disappointed in her. Such a good chance to finally win her first Tier 1 in over 2 years and she loses to Azarenka of all people. Just feel like going to sleep and forget about this result. I'm totally shattered and feel like crying after seeing this result.

A certain blonde likable sheila(as opposed to one of her fans) is like Bepa when a little off her game ,always vunerable to a good, hard hitting player who is on and painting the lines, so if Vika had just kicked Caro's rounded ass,would tennis have triumphed :confused:
Funny that Zvon had more winners than Vika,where are the winners mean everything brigade :confused:
Some going on about her crying, I didn't see much crying, she seemed to be taking it too calm for me smiling at the end and even waving to the crowd when walking off a rarity for her after an ass kicking,a thing I have criticised her for not doing.

Apr 1st, 2011, 10:10 PM
Zvonareva's generic game nearly always brings out the best in her opponents, but I don't think I had seen such a textbook demonstration of that since last year's Charleston final.

Great match from Azarenka regardless. Everything she had done well vs Kimberley, she did even better yesterday. Flawless 1st set, with a couple of needless UEs at most. She rallied superbly, beat Zvonareva at her own game of shifting the direction of the ball, was thus allowed to play more aggressively, and even flattened out her FH a few times.

Once Zvonareva realised that she wasn't winning any of the long neutral rallies, she began going for more. And since she was somewhat off her game, it rarely worked. Dismal on ROS and unsuccessful at mixing it up.
