Of course, but Vika just beat what a top 6 (?) player on clay playing poorly, it's not all doom and gloom. Beat who you are suppose to beat and you can go far.

Didn't watch a point because I was working. Guess that was a good idea.

About tomorrow's semifinal match against Sara Errani. Vika leads their head-to-head matches 5-1 and she has won Sara on clay in Marbella (6-2 6-1) and Rome (6-1 6-2) in 2011.

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

Sara was pretty poor at times vs McHale, almost crumbling under the pressure of playing at home (she blew a massive lead in the 2nd set), but then vs Kirilenko was very impressive. The key for Vika is she's got to crush Errani's serve, she needs to be breaking the majority of the time.

I'll take any win over a top 10 player on clay so I'm not fussed despite how supposedly bad she played.

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

Why all the negativity? Yes she didn't play well but to win over Stosur on clay while playing crap speaks volumes about her potential.

I don't know what happened against Makarova (refuse to watch that match), but this is the Vika from last year. When she is not playing well, she focus on the key points and still win. Lost only to Serena in a 3 set match.

But agree, playing like this against Errani will not be enough. But Vika's normal level will be enough.

Edit: Regret i said crap about Vika's game (like i could do better ). Just mean that winning over Stosur 1 week before RG while playing below normal standard is a good sign.

Semi will begin 16 hours after her 2 hours QF but Errani didnt play yesterday, hope there's no problem on stamina.

I often complain about scheduling, but i think they just want to make sure the finalists have some rest before the final.

And when Sharapova withdraw they had no match to put on evening centre, hence Vika vs Stosur was moved.

Yes, Errani has a slight advantage of this, but i would not use it as an excuse. Like most matches (maybe except against Serena) if Vika plays good she will win, if not she still had some good matches before RG.

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

I expected Vika to reach Semis in this tournament once the draw was released. I thought Vika would loose to Maria in 2 or 3 close sets, but now considering Vika's form on clay evident from yesterday's match and having a clear chance to enter Finals after Maria's withdrawl I sincerely hope she would not be humiliated in the hands of Serena in the final if she gets there. So I am not sure ATM which one is better tanking match today or going into the final to face the same fate as Maria in the hands of Serena.Unfortunately if Serena wont withdraw from today's match then she wont from Final.

I'd say let her get as much clay court matches as possible before RG Sam is not an easy one to defeat on Clay. And she did which I am sure its a big confidence booster for her

Yes i always want her to win. Errani might be a hard match though.

If she gets to meet Serena in the final, lets just see that as a preparation for a rematch in a couple of weeks. I would be suprised if Vika wins here, but who knows.

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

For anyone that missed it. Vika was far, far better today. The first set was absolutely sublime tennis from her. The second set got messy after Vika blew a 3-1 lead and let the crowd into the match, but ultimately she regained her concentration just in time to win 3 games in a row from 4-5* down.

Vika had 13w/3ue after set 1 I think, and finished with 37w/22ue (Sara 18w/16ue).

The more matches Vika gets to play before RG, the better. Hopefully a good showing against Williams tomorrow.
