The upcoming Indian Wells quarterfinal featuring recent world number 1 Victoria Azarenka and former world number 1 Caroline Wozniacki is being hyped quite a bit--so why am I not all excited about it? Maybe it's because Azarenka is obviously suffering with foot pain and may not be able to play that well. Maybe because I think it will be boring. Maybe both. There's just something about the build-up that doesn't resonate with me.
Azarenka, by the way, has won 17 straight matches this season.
The other quarterfinal to be played today features Angelique Kerber and Sam Stosur. I'm more interested in that one, but won't be able to watch it. Neither player came into the tournament with much promise, yet each has made it this far.
