Two things surely will help Vika in that encounter compared to today's match. 1) The conditions can't really get worse than today (wet, slow clay and a delay when she was about to finish the first set). 2) She's played against Cornet before so she knows what kind of game to expect.
Yes, and as another poster has said, a 50% Vika is probably good enough to beat Cornet. I remember her match against Petra in the USO that she lost in straights with Petra barely playing at half of her possibilities.
It's not a tennis wise question.

What I mean is that since her return from her injury Vika seems to have these concentration lapses, probably also due to the fact that she doesn't feel as safe on clay as on HC, and she sometimes is letting her rivals back into the match when she seems to be safely in charge. She still looks to me a bit hesitant and unsure at times with her shot selection, so I think that this is the kind of match, a GS where she never has performed particularly well, and against a home player that could be easily be pumped up by the crowd, where she needs to be in total control from the beginning and reduce these lapses to the minimum. If she does it should be an easy one.

That draw is almost getting too good.

Cornet 3rd round
Bartoli/Schiavone Last 16
BMS/Ormaechea/Voegele/Kirilenko QF

Kanepi lost already, not unexpected.

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

vika got to be ready and careful how to start the match. the last 2 rounds, she faced multiple breakpoints in first game. you can't let that get into normality as better players will be able to capitalize. and in front of home crowd i see cornet playing really with a lot of motivation, vike cannot let her start into play.

When was the last time Vika played Schiavone? USO 2009? I'd like some revenge for that awful loss.

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

A good time to play a French woman, early in the morning when the French crowd either haven't arrived or haven't woke up yet. The French crowd normally take a while to get going, hopefully they don't get going at all in Vika's match.

They surely will. The other 2 matches at that time are Paire vs Nishikori and Erakovic vs Stephens. Seems a no brainer.

At least Vika will have the first match of the day, so we don't have to wait too long and try to guess when the match starts. For the French crowd there is a double treat tomorrow when both Alize Cornet and Marion Bartoli (vs Francesca Sciavone) will play their matches. http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/sc...chedule12.html

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

Early wake-up time for me tomorrow... but that's OK, who needs sleep anyway?

Hard to see Cornet as a legitimate threat, even on clay...
