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

Her W/U ratio was great, but she can play a better match with 14/24 or something like that. It all depends on the type of match and opponent i think.

Great with a win. One more tomorrow please.

One thing i don't understand is why she is so slow between points. Perhaps im wrong, but i think she almost rushed when she played at her best 2012. But that somehow seemed to work for the tempo of her game.

I guess they (Vika and her team) have a plan with it, that i don't understand (yet).

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

Ah, when. Saw 1-3 and then 2-5, thought damn this is anther shocker. But impressed she came back with straight sets. But boy, 1.5 hours for ne set is tiring. She just needs to cut down errors, first set was 25 errors and total match only 27. It doesn't matter on the differential if the errors count is high.

Oh yes, thank you Joe and iGOAT.
Incredible ratio. This win meant a great deal to her.
Cut down the errors a little bit and get another win tonight, good luck!

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

If she could just get the serve (the double faults) under control, she'd be doing so much better.

I wish she would finally solve this issue, even if it takes a year. The serve issues have ruined Elena Dementieva's career and it'll severely hamper Vika's if this is not resolved. Serve doesn't even have to be good but it has to be adequate. 10+ double faults, will hurt you every time you go up against someone your strength or better. It has to be solved or she'll go down gradually from here.

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

The strange thing about the serve is that it's detracted. It was never great and was always prone to some double faults, but even earlier this year she usually held, while now it almost seems better for her to be returning. Today half the games she lost were on serve . Needs to be addressed during the off season!

UE counts will usually scale with winner counts, as an indication of how aggressive someone is playing. You'll pretty much never see high (nonserve) winner counts with low UEs.

Having said that UE counts are entirely arbitrary anyway and you can only compare between matches at the same tournament as different tournaments will count them differently.

The other thing is that these stats are skewed depending on the pattern of the match. Yesterday Errani was hitting a lot of dropshots and Vika was coming to net a lot anyway. Most of these points are bound to end in winners either way. As opposed to say a vika - sharapova match where both players are trying to pin each other behind the baseline and a lot of point will end in "errors" from going for slightly too much depth or after a long baseline grind.

So basically w/ue counts are useless out of context.

I think Vika played a pretty balanced style yesterday. By the second set she was really dealing to those weak serves too.

Don´t think her groundgame is anywhere near what it was six months ago either. Errani played barely better than in the first set in Rome, when Vika lost five points yet she was leading 5-2. It only looked like Errani was playing decent (outside of her own bad UEs), because there was no pace or decisiveness from Vika. Half the brilliant lobs Errani played in the 1st set, she wouldn´t even touch the ball, if Vika was in form. Compare it to their Doha match, when both played fantastic. This wasn´t even close to that. Lost all confidence, but also doesn´t look totally healthy. Movement appears cautious and slower than ever. I can´t see her advancing past the semifinal regardless of the opponent there.

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

Hard to express my feelings right now...the first set was very close with only a few points making the difference. In the second set she was strangely emotional but didn't have the fire nor energy to turn it around. Jelena held serve without any problems at all. The surface surely wasn't doing Vika any favors in this match-up but that can't be an excuse.

So maybe that's that for Vika's YEC...

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

There is definitely something going on behind the scenes that we don´t know about, be it a more serious injury, coaching, relationship. She didn´t even fight properly. Some of the DFs were just totally unmotivated stuff. The only player she could expect to beat here was Errani and only because Errani is equally out of form.
