Scream-fest # 13. It’s Vika v. Maria

6 Jun

Azarenka v. Sharapova

Bring your ear plugs as Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka go head to head in the semi final.

In a battle of former WTA #1’s, Russia’s self proclaimed “cow on ice” and current world #2 Maria Sharapova, will take on Belarus world #3 Victoria Azarenka. The shriek-o-meter will also be on hand as these two are serial offenders when it comes to making a racket.

Azarenka leads the head to head battle 7-5, Sharapova leads the claycourt part of that equation 2-0. This looms as a titanic battle between two stars of the WTA tour. The PRO thinks this time it will be Vika in 3 sets – partly based on Azarenka’s self assessment when she said in her last post match press conference “while she wasn’t married to clay, we are moving in together”.

In the other women’s French Open semi final world #1 Serena Williams takes on Italian clay court specialist world #5 Sara Errani. What better way for the WTA to celebrate its 40th anniversary than to have these two matches interspersed with a ceremony on Roland Garros’s famed centre court featuring a cavalcade of great female tennis players from the past 40 years.
