How's the weather tomorrow? It better not rain, and there should be as much sunshine as possible.

If Naomi plays well it is going to be in her favour but vika is quite experinced on clay. At her peak she was losing to Serena and Maria who were dominating clay. So she isn't that bad on clay.

If Naomi plays like first set, she will lose. If she plays like 3rd she will win. Serve will make the difference. If Naomi's serve is on it will be key point.

But I feel Naomi gets energy for such matchup. Like matches against serena , maria and vika and she ups her game. That is what I feel! Anyways I hope she wins but her draw is hell. If she makes to 3rd round, she will lose to sakkari anyways...

So I am keeping my hopes low because I won't be disappointed later on!

no one in top 20 should lose to Azarenka right now.

Vika's serve is erratic at best and she doesn't play with enough variety to keep Naomi off a good rhythm. I don't expect more than 6 games for her.

Hope Vika can create a miracle.

I think this could be a great match. You never know when Vika will peak, I think she'll bring it tomorrow and her return will make make life tough for Naomi's not always airtight serve game. It took Naomi an entire set to get into the groove the other day, she won't have that luxury here. If she finds her groove early she should take it, but if she doesn't it could be a 3-set cracker.

Going out on a limb and giving Vika the edge in 3.
Naomi looked so bad in Set 1 yesterday, then dialed in.
Not sure about the consistency of either at this point.
I think Vika is hungrier and under less pressure to perform.

Getting up early to watch this one!
Hope it's a good match.

I would be surprised if Azarenka wins a set.
Naomi got too many weapons, too much power, ..... and too much sushi ....
Sorry Vika. Love you but .. sorry.

She beat 2 top 20 players in her last tournament <img src="https://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/laugh.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Laugh Out Loud" class="inlineimg" />
They’re right though. No one in the top 20 should be losing to Azarenka on clay. Svitolina is returning from an injury & Muguruza hasn’t played like a top 20 player all year.
