Yellow Peril

The Belarusian tennis player, Victoria Azarenka, was practicing on the Wimbledon practice court before going into the semifinal match against Serena Williams. She was practicing with a yellow T-shirt on. But, the rules of Wimbledon are very strict. Even if you are practicing on the practice court, you have to wear the white clothes. One of the officials went to Azarenka and told her that she should be wearing a white T-shirt. He also gave her a white T-shirt to wear. But, Azarenka didn’t look happy with that white T-shirt. She said that she wasn’t feeling comfortable in that white T-shirt.

Azarenka was in fine form before the semi final against Serena. She played wonderful tennis in the quarter final match against Tamira Paszek. She outplayed the young Austrian and defeated her by 6-3, 7-6. However, Tamira played well in the second set and gave a good fight to the Australian open champion. But, she wasn’t able to keep her nerves in the tie-breaker and lost the game. After winning the quarter final match, Victoria said that Serena is a great player and to play the semifinal match against her would be a privilege. On being asked about Tamira, Victoria said that Tamira is a good, young player and the more she will play, the more she will improve.

The recent form of Serena Williams is not that good. She was defeated in the very first round of the French open by an unknown player named Virginie Razzano, who was ranked no. 111 in the official rankings of World Tennis Association (WTA). After that there have been talks that Serena has started to fade. But, there is no doubt that she has been a great player over the years and it would not be easy for Azarenka to win the semifinal match.
