Reflections: Ode To Azarenka

Music: Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah”
Lyrics: The Slice

Hey there Victoria
What’s it like in Melbourne’s City?
I’m a huge fan of yours always
And you lost, it’s such a pity
Yes it is
Li Na just took you out so soon
My draw is doomed

Hey there Victoria
Don’t you worry about the upset
I’ll get over it eventually
And don’t you even bother to fret
She was hard
You’re such a fighter but she won
And now it’s done

Oh, you were such a high seed
Oh, just want you to succeed
Just want you to succeed

Hey there Victoria
I think you’ll still stay in the top ten
But I want you to win a Grand Slam
You and Vera and Caro (you’re friend)
Because you should
You work so hard and you’re so good
You’re shrieking good

Oh, I love you in Nike
Oh, I loved you in the pink
Just loved you in the pink

The next Grand Slam seems pretty far
But there’ll be matches for you to star
Miami, Charleston and Indian Wells
Take the hard court season by storm
The clay court comes, you’ll be on form
And Paris could be very sweet for you
Oh mon dieu…

Hey there Victoria
Grab your coach and your Head racquet
Some more practice down in Florida
You’ll be better quickly I bet
Hit a few more backhands down the line
Now’s your time because you’re in your prime
Hey there Victoria here’s to you
This one’s for you

Oh, you just want you to succeed
Oh, just want you to succeed
Just want you to succeed…
