Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

Well in the end she would know she wasn't good today and was pretty atrocious when it really mattered in the third. I don't think she gets too caught up about losses anymore which is really good. She shook the umpires hand so I think once she's cooled down she's a lot calmer.

Oh and yeah I doubt she'd go to Eurovision

Oh the fuckery.
I'm sure that 90% of this crap is pure rust. Combine that with her worse surface and how she isn't the most patient creature on the planet and voila.

I guess it's a good thing I'm used to my favorites sucking during the clay season.

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

Patience is not her virtue, yet. If there is a big challenge for her, patience on clay is it. I thought she learnt how to cool her head but I guess the worst surface brought it out. I think she is frustrated with herself, off so many weeks, coming in early to feel the courts and her strokes deserted her and lost her mental balance.

Two things I see, she must learn how to adjust her action-reaction balance. She can't rely on her fast reaction and by taking balls early to draw errors from opponents, on clay everyone is given time to defend and set up shots. She should be more aggressive in power and employing more angular shots. Second, got to learn how to slide to defend better.

Sigh wanted to see her play a few more matches but now not too optimistic in this clay season.

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

At work so haven't seen the match but have seen some highlights, sounds like the switch flipped for the first time since Cibulkova at RG? Other matches when she's been playing poorly she's managed to find her 70% game and muddle through.

That's probably the reason why those rumors developed (posted on May 6):

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

Couldnt see the match, likely i will skip the replay as well

Not the end of the world, but i have seen in some other matches she doesnt seem to care that much this year. Yet she find a way to win them. (No idea about today).

I still think she should be able to reach good result even on clay. Hope this was more lack of matches.

Exactly, Skip Malmö and play Båstad some year in the future instead.

Btw, she didn't seem to upset in the interviews on the wta website, onwards and upwards.

Any signs about the injury in the match today? I much rather take a loss now and that she is healthy for most of the year from now.

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

Here is a couple of news stories about the match.

Victoria Azarenka crashes out to Ekaterina Makarova after row with the umpire at Madrid Open

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/ten...drid-Open.html
Quote:
Azarena, who was coming back from a two-month lay-off forced by an ankle injury, had only just sneaked past Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the previous round with the help of two lengthy tie-breaks. After Wednesday’s 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 defeat, she attributed her poor form to ring-rust.

“I think it was really noticeable. I made mistakes that I don’t normally do, but that’s what comes after not playing for a long time,” said. “I still have another tournament before the French Open to compete in, and I’m going to go back on the practice court and work hard to improve.”
Victoria Azarenka loses to Ekaterina Makarova at Madrid Open
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ten...a-azarenka.ap/
Quote:
Azarenka said she felt confused by some refereeing decisions.
"I didn't understand what happened, what I did,'' she said. "I was very sure that I didn't have a code violation, that's why I broke my racket.''

Makarova rallied from 3-1 down in the third set, winning five straight games.
"We played many times before and I didn't win so much,'' Makarova said. "It was a really tough first set for me. When I came out, I wasn't playing as well as I wanted to. Then I got a little bit angry and it was really tough to change my game and my mentality.'' But she credits recent strong Fed Cup play on clay for helping her win. Makarova and Elena Vesnina won the decisive doubles match last month to lift Russia past Slovakia 3-2 and reach the Fed Cup final in November. "I think that gave me a little bit more confidence on clay,'' she said. "I really enjoy these clay courts because it's a little bit faster here. I just tried to move her around more in the second and third sets and it worked.''

The third-ranked Azarenka tried to explain the loss, while praising Makarova.
"I have to give Ekaterina credit, she played really well,'' Azarenka said. "I played more against myself, trying to prove to myself certain things, more than I was focusing on my opponent.''

Azarenka, who missed Indian Wells and the Miami Open in March because of the ankle injury, said she still felt rusty. She's looking forward to another clay tournament - Rome - before heading to Roland Garros.
"I have been making mistakes,'' she said. "But that's what comes after not playing for a long time. I still have another tournament before the French Open to compete in.''

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.

At the end of the day Vika has to be better than that mentally. She shouldn't have let it completely overtake her thoughts. It's not like this was a decision at a point when the match had totally gotten away from her down a set and a break. It was on serve in the 3rd, the match was very much there for the taking, it was not like Makarova really did anything to win, Vika just completely gifted her the match.

At least this part sounds good :- “I still have another tournament before the French Open to compete in, and I’m going to go back on the practice court and work hard to improve.”
