She's young, a great athlete, attractive. Lately she's got alot of attention playing some big names in the slams. Why wouldn't a company want her to sell their product?

Vika's serve leaves much to be desired. There's always a chance that Ana will get a lead and then choke it away. Tongue

She is a young, charming girl who is slowly making her way into some conversations of course companies are going to want to get her in a contract early in case she actually does pull it together and wins something of note, so they can get her at a "premium" rate.

I didn't mention that, but you are right Sunday. They can get her right now for a lower rate than if/when she actually wins something.

Vika has not hit a single winner yet! Come on Ana keep it together. I would like to see you back in the mix. We need more people in the slam mix.

She's choking big time. Still really no confidence in her serve.

Maybe if she gets the break and set, Ana will calm down, maybe that is a tall task for someone who hasn't shown much mental fortitude.

She got the first set good on Ana. Let's hope she can keep it up and relax in the second set. I like Ana after Serena I root for her usually.

Well it's easier to swing out on someone else's serve. But she still needs confidence in her serve and I don't see it yet.

Oh I agree, she has one of the most up and down serves in the game, but let's see if this makes her relax and serve better in set 2.

Though, I don't think we have seen the Vika ground game at the best at the moment.

Though I will say, she is putting huge pressure on the Vika serve. Azarenka is 60% on wins for 1st erves and 0% on second serves.
