Sorry the match didn't go well for you. Felt like her game in the second set, while not fully functioning, was good enough to get her over the line. She actually played decent tennis in that first game of the third set but made a mess of the finishing.

Yea thanks. I thought the 2nd would get her through to third. But I guess she let go one game and never went back in. I felt that she didn't go all out going for her shots. She got beaten not playing her best. All other players have lapsed time and she could get back in. But she shouldn't wait for it to happen with aga.

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

The intensity is certainly not there anymore nor is the inner fire to win.
Her concentration lapse & lack of mental preparation for a match is staggering.
Her team don't seem to believe in her and they don't care if she's very serious about winning.

I'm sorry but we are in no position to make such an assessment.

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

I wouldn't blame Vika's team members for this result straight away. We are outsiders, and the things looked quite promising before the quarterfinal. Both Vika and Sam Sumyk probably deciced to recruit those new members for the team during off-season.

Somehow this AO quarterfinal vs Aga Radwanska remains me the Carlbad final 2013 vs Sam Stosur. Vika had and has a huge head-to-head statistics vs. both Aga (12-4) and Sam (8-1). For some reason Vika couldn't really find her game rhythm, and Aga must have been very motivated in this match, and all her tricks seem to work for her. Perhaps Vika needs mostly to improve her movement, and now there is two and a half weeks time to recover for the Qatar Open in Dohan (will start on February 10, 2013). If Vika find her game, she doesn't have many ranking point to defend between Doha (W) and Rome (F). So the ranking shoudn't bring her much extra pressure.

As a whole the WTA tennis seems to become more unpredicable, and this tournament looks as open as Wimbledon 2013. Perhaps Genie Bouchard will "save tennis" like a young Martina Hingis did as a teenager.

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

I thought so. Wimby last year. Hugely unpredictable. I wonder if this is one off or actually a change at the top. It is not about accidents but the courts are faster and weather hot. Still. I feel so so sad, I kept thinking about the first game third set. How to get over it...

It still feels to me like it's all just a bad dream. I mean, I have witnessed the heartbreaking matches against Serena and I've seen her play like utter crap multiple times before but this loss is just something else. Of course everyone can have a shitty day in the office but it's not like the signs of something like that happening sooner or later weren't there. Not sure what to expect from her in the future.
Aga played awesome yesterday. The way Vika's been playing for quite some time now she's just not going to win matches against other strong players in good form. She'll need to step it up to 2012 level again, she got away with it for some time being mentally tough but you can only do that for so long.

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

I mean, most of what I wanted to say about this match has been covered by you all. But seriously, when was the last time Vika got an actual quality win over a quality opponent in Slams? And I don't mean bullshitting your way through the draw playing inconsistent tennis a la US Open 2012. I seriously think we have to go back to AO 2012 for this, the way she played Clijsters and Sharapova was incredible to witness and the improvements on her serve were a joy to watch. All of that went to shit for some reason.

Ohh holy Queen of Fuckery, what has yee done?? This is a beyond disappointing loss, she should never ever be losing to Agatha no matter how many rare shots the latter pulls off/flukes.

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

Somehow I taking we feel much worse than vika. She knew her opponent was great but also knew how bad she played. We, just mourned for the fact that she lost good opportunity. And that we have been worrying for a while now really of what version of vika would show up on court. How can she turn so inconsistent since 2012. I don't know if she is wearing the pressure well. I feel that the way she plays, there is more to lose this more to gain. Her mental game is fine, her actual game is not. What a reality check at a slam.

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

I just caught the ES replay from 2-3 second set, Vika won 8 straight points there. Just shows Radwanska's victory was largely Vika's doing. Vika also looked really lethargic from what I saw, and mentally not there.

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

I didn't know what to expect after reading GM with all the clowns celebrating and that bitter mess Tennis Ghost baiting and opening doors for all the haters, but after watching parts of the match and I am still stunned. Vika wasn't bad, she was abysmal. That third set. It doesn't matter how well Aga might play, if Vika is just average (more or less what she was against Sloane) she should never lose this match up, but 6-1 and 6-0 !! ffs. I am speechless. And with Pova a mess and Serena not getting any younger, in decent form this season she should have won, at least, 2 slams. Now we have Pome, Aga and Bouchard as contenders. A joke. Even VIP in her current form has options again from now on. I hope at least that Li will win the whole thing.

At least the expectations have lowered. She's not a safe bet anymore, even to make it to the SF. I hope she can play more freely from now on and gradually sort out all the fitness issues. The season has just started and I don't want to even imagine things getting any worse.

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

Well, I didn't want to comment until I saw the match for myself. It felt like she was lost out there. She was trying to play her usual game and it wasn't working, then she'd try and play more percentages and that too wasn't working as well either. Credit to Radwanska, she did play well in the match, but I do feel Vika should have at least been able to make things a lot closer than she did. I think the most concerning thing is just how she lost the third set. Of course she was fighting, but she just couldn't even piece it all together to win a game, so unlike her Oh well, considering how she's played this tournament, a QF is very good. Hopefully this gives her motivation to improve, and doesn't damped her mentally.
