Victoria Azarenka Continues To Look Unstoppable With Quarterfinal Blowout Of Agnieszka Radwanska At The 2012 BNP Paribas Open At Indian Wells

Victoria Azarenka

This is getting scary good. Victoria Azarenka turned a potentially dangerous foe in Agnieszka Radwanska into another blowout victim in the quarterfinals of the 2012 BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. Agnieszka, who will move into the 4th spot in the WTA rankings after Indian Wells, very nearly suffered a double bagel loss. Vika was up 6-0 5-0 with the score 30-30 when Aga pulled it together to win a couple of games to make the scoreline a fractionally better 6-0 6-2 win for Azarenka. Vika remains unbeaten in 2012, moving to 21-0, while Aga drops to 20-4, with all four losses to Vika. I guess the positive is that Aga is also undefeated in a way…so long as she’s not playing Azarenka! 🙂

Angelique Kerber

Next up to try to stop Vika is Angelique Kerber, who defeated Li Na, 6-3 6-2. Angelique does have a win (and a loss) against Maria Sharapova this year, so I don’t expect her to be intimidated. Overwhelmed by the level of Vika’s game? Possibly. But frightened by Vika’s presence? Not likely. However, for Kerber to pull the upset it will take more than a positive attitude. Azarenka will have to come down to mortal levels. Maybe we will see Masha get another crack at Vika in the Indian Wells final, a rematch of their Australian Open final which Azarenka won convincingly, 6-3 6-0. Of course, Sharapova has to get through her side of the quarterfinals draw. She will take on Maria Kirilenko while Ana Ivanovic will face Marion Bartoli. Even if a Vika-Masha match happens, I don’t know if Masha can win without some help from Vika having an off day. Speaking of Masha, apparently she is working on a candy line.
