Rome R2: Victoria Azarenka def. Elina Svitolina 4-6 6-1 7-5

Vika just beat world #6 and two times Italian Open champion, a great comeback in the final set from 2-5 to 7-5!

Rome R2: (WC) Azarenka def (5) Svitolina 4-6 6-1 7-5

The Queen of Rome is no more

Brutal stuff from Vika the match seemed like it was hers to win or lose from early on in set 1. Elaine totally losing ability to hold serve. Does this mean she’s finally going to make final of RG?

A match worthy of 3 threads appearing at the same time for first time in ages?

Vika got lucky for once, bullshit win. Feel kinda bad for Svitolina.

That volley to break for 5 all was absolutely sensational though

Re: Rome R2: Victoria Azarenka def. Elina Svitolina 4-6 6-1 7-5

This match will have consequences for both, what an epic (two rain delays at least).
Azarenka finds some form on her worst surface: She will be dangerous at Wimbledon and in the summer of US Hard Courts.
Svitolina - in her favourite tournament - leads 52 and chokes badly, that will be hard to absorbe and forget.
Interesting match, great atmosphere in the late night, a good fight.

Re: Rome R2: Victoria Azarenka def. Elina Svitolina 4-6 6-1 7-5

Vika got one thing lucky when Elina completely shanked what was supposed to be an easy putaway to win the match. After that, Vika just notched her intensity up so much and won the next 5 games.

Re: Rome R2: Victoria Azarenka def. Elina Svitolina 4-6 6-1 7-5

What an insane match! For once luck was solidly on Vika's side as she got that complete shank facing match point down and two very close netcords on pretty big points in the third set went her way. But she took full advantage of it .

Vika has now beaten top ten opponents in three of her last four tournaments and taken a set off one in the fourth. And three were on clay. I don't want to get ahead of myself but her comeback is finally picking up some steam!!

Even though it says that the last post in Live Commentary thread was 1 minute ago, when I open the thread, I cannot see any post posted in last 2-3 hours..Did anyone else face the same issue?

Re: Rome R2: Victoria Azarenka def. Elina Svitolina 4-6 6-1 7-5

Silly Elaine 5-2 double break up in the final set and MP on serve. Sends forehand unforced error into stands and ends up losing match after serving for it twice. At least Svitolina looks healthy now after recent knee troubles. 0-3 H2H vs Vika is there for a reason.
