Indian Wells 2011 has ended and congratulations to the winners Caroline Wozniacki and Novak Djokovic. In a thrilling match Wozniacki beat surprise finalist Marion Bartoli in three sets 6-1, 2-6, 6-3. Novak Djokovic managed to maintain his amazingly good form versus Rafael Nadal and beat him in a stunning three set match 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
But the BNP Paribas has ended and we now move on to the next tournament: The Sony Ericsson Open! It starts this Wednesday in Key Biscane, Miami and it is one of the biggest non-major tournaments on the planet. Last year the title fell prey to Kim Clijsters who defeated Venus Williams in a match that was over quicker than my eyes can blink.
Some reporters of TennisGrandstand will write some nice stuff for us in the coming days so stay tuned!
I have managed to obtain some amazing photos from the great Chris Rogers at Miami Tennis Photos! One of the series that he sent us was about Victoria Azarenka. Have you noticed that at important events, something bad always happens to Vika Azarenka? Fainting versus Serena Williams at the Australian Open, last year’s US Open and last week at Indian Wells she retired versus Caroline Wozniacki. Let’s hope that nothing will happen to her at the Sony Ericsson Open 2011.
Anyway, if you guys have any predictions for Vika for the 2011 edition of the Sony Ericsson Open then feel free to leave a comment. I think she can make it to the semis if that hip of hers doesn’t act up. But that is just me. I want to know what you think!
