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

I felt like I got the revenge seeing aga lost. Vika just had too many errors and played herself into shit. Oh well at least I don't need to see aga in final. Cibu believed in herself and went for her shots. Sometimes it may not work week after week, but these 2 weeks she is on fire. Who would have known. It's the same she has nothing to lose against aga like aga had nothing to lose against vika. Wearing expectation is not easy.

And cibu was solid, aggressive but defends very well too. All vika has to do us to cut down unforced errors and have a up at her shots. What she performed would not have passed Li's flat balls as well. From what I saw vika doesn't place the balls near baseline anymore, but the rest of players do.

A year ago cibulkova got double bageled by radwanska in the final of sydney. Big game player indeed. I just think she has such low margins technically that small changes in court speed, opponent shot trajectory etc easily knock her game off stride. And the fistpumping is fine, as vika might say if the opponent has a problem with it then theyre a weak person.

She played one bad match and suddenly everyone is better than her? Her rally shots were deep and heavy against stephens, it looked like against radwanska she came out and suddenly the shots that were landing a foot inside the baseline were going wide or long. So she took something off them, just to hang in match and hope her timimg came back.

It´s more stupid shot selection than margin with her imho. Show me a player that has never been in the top 10, that has 19 wins over the current top 10. I doubt you´ll find many. I don´t even like Cibulkova and obviously being 5´3 everything has its limits, but there is no doubt that she has a certain swagger.

Of course Vika played a shit match against Radwanska. At the same time so did Stephens against Vika. You pull out the return games at 3-5 in the 3rd set against Tolöjanovic and in the 2nd against Svitolina and you´ll see four aggressive returns, you haven´t seen once against Vika. Stephens is mentally weak, completely lackadaisical. She has so much raw talent, but no idea how to channel it. I thought she had it figured out in the 1st set against Rena at the USO, but apparently losing the set 4-6 and the match made her doubt the direction again.

Domi should win it all!! After beating Aga, Maria and Simona she deserves it better than Li Na!!

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

I'm very glad Radwanska is out, I couldn't stand her becoming a slam winner... it would hurt the WTA so much. I can very well live with both possible winners.

This is unlikely to hold up for long though. Vika will have to improve medium term. Sharapova is likely to get better, she was out for a long time, so Australian Open was always unlikely for her. I think expecting any imminent decline from Serena is more wishful thinking, than a likely reality.

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

What a bad joke of a final. Also want Li to win then since she did get unlucky in last year's final.

Radwanska bowing out 1 and 2 really shows how off Vika was. Everybody is rubbing themselves over Agatha's usual junk (her great trickster shots aren't even in display anymore for years now), but for every magical shot (*barf*) she landed, Vika granted another 10 errors.

That is GM for you. No discussion about the actual matches possible anymore. It´s all GIF madness. If I ran this place, pictures/gifs would be banned from results threads. I didn´t bother to read more than two pages. And although it would probably make for a good laugh 24 hours later, I still don´t care.

Vika officially withdrew from Fed Cup. You guys were right that she wouldn't play. I still think it's too bad - it's not like she's going to be too tired after the AO and I think the low-pressure matches could've been great for her to practice new things/gain some confidence. See her in Doha .

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

All I can say is she better never knock off my beloved Jo-La and then go stink up the joint like she did against Radwanska ever again.

I mean I'm not sure how I'll back that threat up or anything, but she just better not.
