Exactly, things need to be put into perspective...

The fact that Victoria was able to resolve all her preceding issues (forehand, serve...) in just one encounter against Serena proves how much she was inconsistent pre-Cincinnati final.

It also proves that she only just needed one very though test to get her form, which she has done and the Serena encounter was exactly what she needed...

As for Cibulkova, I mean scared of her when Victoria just comes from a win over Serena in a Premier 5 event ? Ok (!) well, that's an option - maybe Cibulkova has something Serena Williams just doesn't have ; I'll pay attention to that in the future.

For now, most people tend to overrate that Miami match where Victoria was ditching like 99.99999% of her shots down the center and into Cibulkova's forehand. She herself admitted afterwards that she played this match without a brain... as for their match in Roland Garros, well, Victoria miraculously somehow escaped a 60 Ue Brianti match, well that's all you need to know about her RG 2012...

This is a good draw for Victoria. She's fit, confident, a tremendous hard-court player, she really seems to want that US Open [...] without transmitting an overconfident image about her chances, she should definitively make the final of this tournament.

The only player against whom she can possibly be written off against here is Serena, and even that nowadays is very risky game considering their hard-court encounters, the fact that she leads her 3-1 in HC finals (2-0 in 2013 [Doha, Cincinnati]) and that she was already in position to serve for the trophy last year at 5*-4... anyways best of luck.

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

I watched the Carlsbad and Cincinnati matches again and saw substantial improvement. In Carlsbad, Vika was very inconsistent and impatient (especially against Sam). In Cincinnati, she was steadier and more patient. Her ground game improved over the course of the tournament and her return of serve was very good for the whole tournament. Her main problem (as usual) was her serve but it was much much better the last two sets vs Serena. Hopefully, her improvement continues during the US Open.

I was watching that first set against Woz, she was simply superb If she can play like that in the Open 80% of the time, the title will be hers

@Vikapower, Pome moves well and hits big often...

yes, i followed closely carlsbad and cincy. there is an significant improvement match after match. hope the last 2 sets against serena had created some miraculous run in USO! can't wait.

it will be great that vika showed the same form from first match, but then after her rollar coaster year and her roller coaster run at cincy, it is quite possible that she can run into form through the tournament.

That's a pretty good draw for Vika. She should have no trouble until at least the 4th round, but anything can happen. Best of luck for the tournament

Serena is still the favorite, but Victoria is a close second. I am hoping that those awful days where everything seemed to be off in her game are over and done with; even so, she could still get away with it the three first matches, but she needs to be quite sharp and focused from the fourth round onwards.

It seems that Serena's loss to Vika is going to act as a sort of revulsive or extra motivation to Serena. There's a thread in GM with some totally (as expected) over the top posts. If anyone benefited largely from that match was obviously Victoria.

^ my thoughts exactly, everyone over in GM thinks that the Cincy loss has motivated Serena (which it probably has) therefore she is going to 'distroy' Vika and win the title 60 60 . But the win for Vika has defiantly given her the mental edge over Serena, coupled with the defeat in last year's final i think that Vika is more motivated to win it then ever and now she believes she can win it .

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

I'm so happy for Dinah, not only gets she play on Ashe but night session as well!

I will thoroughly enjoy this one, there's really no chance Vika will lose as much as a set, very much looking forward to it

there are always a couple of matches that leave big marks on a player's career, which they will serve as huge boosters and ones that she can draw on to pull through difficult times. i think personally :

1. 2011 miami win after which she nearly retired
2. 2012 AO win
3. 2012 USO final
4. 2013 AO win
5. 2013 doha win

i also think some of her defeats to serena in melbourne had far much impact on her. she could always play serena for one set and a half, neck to neck, it's really only this year that she has grown into patience + aggression that earned her those wins. the cincy win though, it is one of a kind. it's a come-from-behind win, which she has never done it before.

as much as i like vika, if a 100% top form serena vs vika, the edge is always with serena. but now, vika knows she will always have a chance cos nobody can hang on 2-3 hours of 100% best play. and that kind of high level play endurance, vika has come out on top in mastering it.

its like how she found out that hanging with Li until she goes away and in the mean while keeping her form to press continuosly. Unless until they are physically/athletically very strong, Serena or Li cannot play 100% throughout a three set match as they are above 30 now. It takes a toll on their body to maintain it. Also Vika does not give easy points and plays fantastic herself, it becomes more difficult for them. She found this truth quickly with Li Na as Li is not an athlete like Serena. With Serena she is slowly realizing it, keeping a full throttle in the third set is very important to beat Serena. She learnt that lesson from last year's final.
