She should've played doubles here! It would give some more match practice, and based on the double fault count her serve could use it if nothing else.

Ok. About what you'd expect really. It wasn't great, but it wasn't awful. I thought it was a positive building block.

What cost her the match was her timing was off, and being too passive. Too often when she had a chance in rallies she'd put the ball down the middle of the court with not enough on it which Giorgi was feasting on. There would be cross court backhand rallies, and Vika's normal backhand down the line, would be a backhand into the middle of the court.

Although it would have been good to play a few matches here. I don't think it's the end of the world in not doing so. I thought it was the sort of performance, which looked like she could be playing very well soon, it just needs all the issues ironing out.

And I imagine the serve continues to be an issue? Lots of double faults. Sounds decent though, and it could have been a lot worse. With more match play and toughness I would think Vika would have found a way to come through this type of match. Similar to the match Masha lost to Congi earlier this year before she had gotten back on track.

Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 5.

I thought as the first match it wasn't so bad. She moved well enough. Had some passion on getting through break points. But yeah played too conservative. Not gutsy enough on attacking that's why in bad positions in defending. Killer instinct not back yet. I would have liked her to come through her last service game but looks like she was running out of steam. First match that lasted 2 hrs 40 min is good test to stamina. Hopefully now she knows her competition field better and really focused to come back and win.

That's great to hear. I just hope she finds some rhythm and then she can come back strong for the hard courts at least.

I wish Vika could have started against Pennetta or Watson. Abundance of rhythm available in a match like that for Vika.

Hopefully this happens at Wimbledon. Get a mid-level counter puncher in the first round or two; someone who can't hurt her with their excessive defense or random winners.

We can also take this loss as a positive. It might have made her aware of those things she needs to work on and enter wimbledon in a much better shape

I think she was really good for someone who only got on a court 3 (?) weeks ago. If it hadn't have been Giorgi, she definitely could've won. Really proud if her fight though, and i am sure Sam kniws what to work on for Wimbly

Well Giorgi isn't some giant now all of a sudden Have to wait and see how it goes at Wimbledon but she seems to be on the right track.

Really, I don't expect much from our Sith Princess until hardcourt season.

The good news is that she's playing and I hope the grass is a little easier on her body as she works her way back into form.

They say its Vika vs Lucic Baroni in the first round! I dont know about her much. Can she trouble Vika? I want her to win a few rounds and gain some points here!

Vika's draw is pretty decent imo. Now it's about finding form.

Vika starts on Monday.
