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

I'd say more positives than negatives from today. The first set was HORRIFIC, but once again Vika manages to find a way through. The point she played out of the blue at 1-6, 0-0 (0-40) was 100% the turning point of the match, and very likely saved her tournament and potentially her confidence in the near future. Absolutely huge and gutsy effort there . Otherwise, Empress largely handed over the match by having a complete meltdown, but Vika played reasonably well and it was great to see her fight and win through a mental test again. What is terrifying is her absolutely inability to close out matches this week. She failed to serve for the match against Dellacqua, endured epic fuckery against Vögele, and was lucky to come through that last game today.

I'm really excited for the final. Vika showed in Cincinnati and the US Open that she can raise her level when it matters, so I'm really hoping for the same tomorrow . Hopefully she'll somehow get Ma$ha but Reehanna match-ups are always exciting too .

She knows how to win close matches in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Leave it to GM to go crazy last fall when Vika lacks motivation and then have a field day over her passionate celebration today .

Really happy that she got it done in the end! It was an exhausting match to watch and I'm sure for Vika as well. Good luck tomorrow!

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

Already you can see how precious how some TF posters get in regards to match winning celebrations.

Good:
- Didn't fold after monumental flopping in 1st set, it was unbelievably bad
- Clutch BH at *5-4 deuce to give her MP2
- Ground game improved gradually as match went on
- Celebration, as mentioned, was very positive to see after last night where there was none
- She's got a clean slate to start from and nothing to lose tomorrow
- Kept emotions in check

Bad:
- Serving mostly pretty mediocre
- Still some awful shanks but mostly in the 1st
- Jitters when she tries to finish off a match

Ugly:
- My overreactions in the LS thread

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

Obviously if she can win, or at least play a good match, tomorrow that would be great, but this result marks a very solid week of AO preparation/2013 fall recovery either way. I seriously think the fact that she beat Reehanna in Hua Hin is a fairly significant bonus too as she can count that as a real win in terms of confidence whatever happens tomorrow.

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

To reach the final here is a great result before the AO. The result in the final is not that important imo. If she lost this match i would be much more worried, as she usually wins these kind of matches (except end of last year).

AO is where she needs to win the final. I wouldn't mind to switch the Cincinatti and US open final results.

I hope Vika pulls out the 'I've got nothing to lose' card before Serena does.

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

Am I the only one that finds the new points distribution totally stupid. You get 55 points for winning one match (2nd round loss) and an average of 61 points per match for winning three matches (semifinal loss). In other words KDK beating Rogowska is worth 55 points, JJ beating Kerber is worth six more points.

I think I'd still rather she play Serena than Pova in the event Pova won.

Yes it sucks. Getting more points for winning R1 than R2 is just illogical, though that isn't just the new system, that problem existed last year.

Anyway, Serena doesn't look that great here. Is making lots of unforced errors.

Serena it is.

I think Vika has a chance if she keeps her head.
