DAVIS IS NEXT

Victoria Azarenka will lock horns with the American player Lauren Davis in the second round match of the ongoing BNP Paribas Open.

The 24 years old Belarusian international who has not been supremely fit this season had been awarded a bye in the opening round because of her world ranking. So, the match against Davis will be her first match in the competition.

Azarenka has participated in just a couple of events in 2014. The first one was the Brisbane International Tennis Tournament in which she performed quite well and made it to the title round only to get beaten by the world no. 1 Serena Williams.

Then she went into the Australian Open and looked in pretty good rhythm there as well, but, to the surprise of everybody, she lost in the final 8 round and got knocked out.

Thereafter, she got hit by foot injury which didn’t let her take part in any of the tournaments for about a month or so. There were speculations that she might not come to Indian Wells either, but, fortunately for her, that injury got healed up in time and she made her way to USA for this tournament.

Azarenka’s overall record at Indian Wells is decent, but, not overly impressive. Out of her 6 attempts, she has managed to win the trophy here only once. That’s certainly not good enough for a player of her calibre.

While talking to the reporters ahead of the match against Davis, Azarenka looked quite excited. She said, “I was not sure initially if I would be able to get fit for this tournament. I was just hoping for the best and thankfully, the recovery went well.”

Azarenka is currently at the 4th position in the world rankings.

WORLD’S BEST

Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams are the world’s two best female tennis players at the moment and they are arch rivals. Whenever they play against each other, the spectators get to see terrific tussle.

Azarenka believes that she has been benefitted by the rivalry between herself and Serena. According to her, it’s something which has helped her become an improved player.

Azarenka’s chances of playing against Serena in the near future are pretty good. Both these players are going to take part in the upcoming Brisbane International Tennis tournament and if both of them make it to the title round there, they will be up against each other.

There have been 16 matches played between Azarenka and Serena so far out of which the Belarusian player has managed to win just 3 so far.

Talking to the reporters yesterday about the rivalry between herself and Serena, Azarenka said, “These kinds of rivalries help you improve to be honest. When you face a player of the calibre of Serena, you get to know about your weaknesses.”

“I really love playing against her. It’s always challenging to walk out there and take her on, but, it’s enjoyable too.”

“You want to beat top class players because that’s what gives you satisfaction. You put so much effort during the training sessions just to do that.”

During the last season too, Azarenka was scheduled to face Serena in the semi final round in Brisbane, but, she withdrew herself from that game due to some reason. Now, this time around, it is widely expected that both the players would reach the final and take on each other. If that happens, it will be a cracker of a game.

Azarenka’s first match in the Brisbane International Tennis tournament is against Casey Dellacqua of Australia.
