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

I think the most important thing today was that she seemed to have done the right thing during the off season. I was a bit worried after the first match, but today she looked great again.

Btw, would be nice to see a Wozniacki vs Vika match later. I have not yet seen them play each other.

watched most of Hampton's match against U. Radwanska. She played well, heavy groundstrokes, good variety, likes to come to net. Should be more of a test for Vika than her last opponent.

Good luck

Nice that she gets to play every match there. And good that she gets longer rest (if she wins) before next match.

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

Good luck Victoria, I'm kind of worried about her serve in the last match. I hope she can show much more aggressive serving against Hampton like she did against Sabine for example in Brisbane.

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

Where do I start?

Hampton played the match of her life, and I didn't think she was as good as everyone was saying (ie. in GM, 'she might really trouble Azarenka' etc), but she was playing at a very high level. I think I remember seeing her playing Sharapova this time last year and she was nowhere near as good as today. Vika, from 5-1 onwards (the stretch between 2-1 to 5-1 was very good) was diabolically awful, embarrassing. So many errors, she was playing at a very low level for her standards. But as long as these sorts of matches don't become commonplace, then this is tolerable, I still think she would've won even if Hampton didn't get that injury, whatever it seemed to be.

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

Caution, I'm going to be very vile here.

Vika needs to stop fucking the Rainbow Peasant and get her ass on the practice court. Absolute shit today. No movement, not hitting through the ball at all, no game plan whatsoever, just hitting the ball into Jamie's strike zone.

As soon as she started double faulting the whole game fell apart. Unacceptable. The pressure of attempting to defend is getting to her.

Oh dear, that was absolutely awful. Lucky escape for Vika

I really hope this has nothing to do with that boyfriend of hers...

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

I'm drained. Took 'mess' and 'fuckery' to a whole new level but I'm glad to see that she still has that fighting spirit to battle through a bad day at the office. Next match against Vinci/Vesnina (played against both recently and won comfortably) shouldn't be as difficult ().

Credit to Jamie, she played incredibly well and was so clutch in the second set, really deserved to win that set.

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

oh, and I hope that her comment after the match ("I'm going to practice more" or something like that) didn't mean that she didn't prepare properly for whatever reason...

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

I hope Victoria follows her post-match on-court ITW advise and go and practice because she really needs to up her cadences and play much faster than that if she even wants a chance. The passivity in this match was appalling --

She had no rhythm whatsoever, 17-28 is as bad as it can get and I have no idea where her brains actually were in this match consistently searching for Hampton's forehand with pretty passive shots down-the-middle begging to be stroke for winners. I really hate it when she gets outplayed and plays so linear down the center with very passive shots taking winner after winner.

She started varying the lengths off her backhand much better afterwards and angled shots with more effectiveness.

I know there's a gulf between what Hampton proposed in contrary to Danilidou & Niculescu -- I have a feeling Victoria got surprised there and probably the test she really needed to enter this event -- because her two first opponents were as quality-less as one can find.
