Probably this means they wanted her to play Istanbul but she can't because of Sunshine. Normally International organizers would be wet over the chance of Vika playing. Look what Linz pulled last year just to get fucking Carebear.

YAY!

Hopefully she gets a good draw since the tournament will be PACKED.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

This is interesting…*I'm assuming she tried to enter Istanbul, but based on Sam's comment probably Washington DC too - I wonder why that didn't work out.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

I would have preferred D.C. because it'd be a softer draw for her to find her grove in.

I really don't like how the tournament/player scheduling works anymore. I mean, I understand you don't want players to vulture to blatantly but still, if someone is willing to play and tourney is willing to pay then have at it. I mean wouldn't Istanbul want the possibility of an Azarenka/Wozniacki final?

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

Yeah, Stanford has a strong player field this year: Serena Williams, Agnieszka Radwanska (the 2013 runner-up), Petra Kvitova, Angelique Kerber, Dominika Cibulkova (the 2013 defending champion), Ana Ivanovic, etc. Those seeds are based on rankings as of June 17, so Vika Azarenka should be #4 seeded player in Stanford?

Hopefully we shall see a long tournament in Stanford, and Vika will get much needed matchplay there. She looks fit and ready to play, and there is no danger for burn-out unlike some Vika's rivals who looked quite tired and covered in bandage at Wimbledon.

The top 10 rules for internationals are stupid. They don't suit anyone. They don't suit the tournaments who lose out and they don't suit players.

The rule should be changed to top 10 players can only count 2 international results, not you can only play 2.

It wouldn't even make a big difference. As most would still have none. But it would change these ludicrous scenarios where players effectively can't play.

She'll be fifth , after Reehanna, P3tra, Lady Aga, and Carebear. That could be good though as she gets a first round match instead of a bye, but watch her end up in Reehanna's quarter .

Not having a bye is good. I don't think any of the top four seeds will be wanting to see vika in their quarter.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

As much as these matchups scare me, Vika really needs to play them to reassert herself. She needs to show that on a hardcourt she can still beat Pova. That Petra is still Petra, that Agatha is still her pigeon.

The only player that Vika should ever lose to is Serena and even that is a 50/50 shot.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

Agreed, she needs to reclaim her place and the only way to do that is by playing and winning.

Re: Vika 2014 Schedule Thread

At the moment it looks like Vika will play a World Team Tennis match in Philadelphia on July 15, 2014, and after that she will play with Bob Bryan at V-Grid Tennis Fest in Camarillo, California on July 19, 2014. That's before her next tournament starts in Stanford.

http://tenniseastcoast.com/2014/07/1...is-fest-vgrid/
Quote:
Camarillo, Calif., – Two-time Grand Slam singles champion and former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka will reunite with winning 2008 French Open mixed doubles partner Bob Bryan this Saturday at the popular V-Grid Tennis Fest presented by Alexander Cadillac and Esurance and featuring Mike and Bob Bryan.
Quote:
“Of course we are really happy and thankful that our longtime pal, Vika Azarenka, is coming to help out our Foundation and play the event,” Bob Bryan said. “We had a blast playing mixed together at the French and what a thrill to win that title together.”
Quote:
In the featured match of the day, Bob Bryan and Azarenka will take on Mike Bryan and one of the U.S.’s top juniors, Las Vegas’ Kimberly Yee, who over the weekend received junior tennis’ highest honor by winning the Bill Talbert Sportsmanship award at the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
