I would like to see Vika serve to a reasonable standard, she's going to need to do so to win in New York. Vika needs to dominate the return games, Wozniacki's serve is attackable, and should provide an opportunity to dominate the point from the offset.
I have absolutely no idea which version of vika will show up. The first 2 rounds weren't that impressive. Caro seems to be playing well. Oh well if she needed to play 3 sets against Ana...... Caro..... Will be good warm up.
I like that people here are almost always realistic. I wouldn't like it if people claimed the win was guaranteed. Regardless of her somewhat uncertain form, she is the clear favorite though. But again, i would not pretend to know the result in advance.
It was an improved performance, and definitely on the right track in terms of tuning her game ahead of the USO, there were lots of positives to build on. The biggest worry remains the serve, on which there seems to be the same problem day after day. I guess a hopeful match vs Serena this week will be the ultimate guide to where her game is at under the biggest pressure. Got to beat Jankovic first though.
