Before this, there was so much talk about how deep Miami's field is and how she'd lose to one of these players. There's so much criticism about how she hasn't faced Serena, Petra, or Kim, but really it's not her fault they aren't playing up to standard to face her in the later stages of the tournaments.

Petra OUT
Kim OUT
Serena OUT

Who's left:
Maria - her pigeon
Aga - her other pigeon
Woz - toss up
Venus - I can't believe of all people, it would come down to Venus to stop Vika's streak :eek:

Venus - I can't believe of all people, it would come down to Venus to stop Vika's streak :eek:

I agree venus is going out to radwanska tomorrow, it always happens when one williams loses so does another one, always in the same rnd, wimbledon last year.

Wondering how she'd play Caroline this week.

Lots of people hope that Caro will make the final and win against Azarenka there, it would be the perfect ending, especially a beatdown.

But a Sharapova trashing by Azarenka would be good too :oh:

Vika's not in peak form this week, streak in some danger. I called a Vika-Maria final before the tournament began, it's getting closer.

Despite her troubles vs Cibulkova, still have a feeling Azarenka will win this week. A potential match up vs Venus could be interesting (and lets be honest we'd all rather see this than Azarenka thrashing Radwanska again), but I just don't think Venus is at a high enough level to beat Vika right now.

Nah I think she is overdue for a loss. If she finds a way to win this tournament, I´d be amazed. It is especially tough with an apparently in form fighter like Bartoli nexz and two more potential match-ups against pushers, who are most capable of taking advantage of physical and mental fatigue. Only way I see Vika taking the title is over Venus and Sharapova. She doens´t make it through Bartoli, Radwanska and Wozniacki. No way.

Marion gets no respect.

The H2H is pretty damning against her though. Vika is what 8-2(1) (Hard to really count Bartoli's WTA Champs win as a real match). She may not be playing at her best yet in Miami, but her confidence has to be even more sky high after the match vs Cibulkova. So in that respect its not that surprising people are overlooking Marion.

When, Serena was on one of her many hot stages Marion was the only players who beat her. She did the same to Venus once. I wouldnt be surprised if she pulls another upset. Vika's looked rough this tournament, but luckily for her shes #1 and benefits in the draw as #1.

Last time they played it was for, what, $100,000?

That was hardly normal circumstances though. Vika just didn't give a crap about that match. As soon as she lost the break she led in the 2nd, she just threw in the towel. Sure it was for $100,000, but Vika had bigger fish to fry (the semi finals the next day).

LOL Vika totally threw that match and it was obvious to everyone. :rolls: The crowd was not very appreciative IIRC.

IMO Bartoli is not as talented as Cibulkova so Vika should be OK tomorrow.

oh yeah i guess

And Bartoli's only other win was a retirement, no?

Just some facts :
- winner of yec tie earnt 225 000 $ and not 100 000.
- in Sydney, Marion led in each set with a break up (6-4 7-5 for Vika)
- in Easrbourne, marion led 6-2 2-0 before vika's retirement
- in stanford 2010, marion led 6-3 3-1 before Vika's come back
- in Montreal 2010, marion got 4 set points in 2nd set

Wow, thanks for the correction. If anyone thinks $250,000 isn't enough motivation to win a match, you're crazy. Keep in mind, this is before Vika wona major, became #1, had a huge win streak. She wasn't throwing matches.

She may have played like shit...

She may have played like shit...But Marion defeated players Justine, Venus or Serena despite the fact that they have been major winners. Marion is not like that. That's why she can be dangerous. She knows how to play Vika. She'll try her best, because she likes to fight on a court. I remember that crowd in Montreal became crazy at the end of 2nd set. The fight was absolutly amazing.

I saw Bartoli practice at the outside courts neat Scotch College in Melbourne, it was quite exciting.

But I don't think this will be a big sweat for Vika, maybe a three setter.

Bartoli is easily more talented than Cibulkova, that´s why she is getting more results. Pound for Pound though Cibulkova is one the very best players in the world. She hasn´t exactly been dealt a great hand by mother nature and to make it as far as she has (for all her bubbly happy slutiness off the court) speaks volumes of her determination. Every once in a while on the right courts, she´ll bust out a near perfect match and you completely forget that she is like 4´11. But that level is simply not sustainable for a lengthy period of time, because of Cibulkova´s body dimensions.

Indeed. She really is like the Olivier Rochus of women's tennis, who the exact same things could be said about (cept the slutiness part :lol: ).

Preach.

I am always amazed at how hard and accurate she can hit, especially cause she's usually getting balls boucing higher than her shoulder...it's very draining physically to play like that.

Woow I have no problem admitting that Vika is beating the shit out of Maria lately but so far they've played only twice this year and this is just the beginning, beside we're on a surface who help tremendously Vika and her grinding game now come to me during clay season and fast season. Hopefully you won't hide during this part of the season or jump on someone else's back.
