Azarenka Edges Ivanovic, Back To No.2


Victoria Azarenka got past Ana Ivanovic in three sets to reach the final of the Southern California Open and secure a return to No.2 in the world. Samantha Stosur awaits her in the final.


Azarenka Edges Ivanovic, Back To No.2


Victoria Azarenka survived a second half surge from Ana Ivanovic on Saturday to move through to the final of the Southern California and secure a return to No.2.


The No.2-seeded Azarenka had won the pair's last two meetings in straight sets and things looked headed the same way as she rolled through the first set at love; the No.7-seeded Ivanovic didn't go quietly, capturing the second set and staying on serve through 2-all in the third set, but a love break in the next game gave Azarenka total control of the decider, and she rode it to a 60 46 63 victory.


"Ana is really a very big shotmaker - she loves to take her opportunities and just bang the ball and find those deep shots," Azarenka said. "That's what she does, and I was aware of that. For me, it was key to not let her take those shots, and I had to be the one putting the consistent pressure on her."


"She's No.3 for a reason," Ivanovic said. "I felt like I gave her too many easy points, especially at the important moments, like deuces. But again, that's the belief you have to have against these kind of players. If you give them chances, they'll use them. I actually created a lot of chances myself, and if I just managed to convert a couple more of those chances, it could have been a different match."


Azarenka's win means she will flip spots with Maria Sharapova on Monday, moving from No.3 to No.2.


At night, No.5 seed Samantha Stosur followed Azarenka into the final, overcoming a slow start to beat French wildcard Virgine Razzano, 76(2) 63. Razzano, who had taken out seeded players in the last two rounds, came out blazing to a 4-0 lead - Stosur regrouped though, eventually winning in straights.


"I don't feel like I was playing too badly at the start to be 4-0 down - she was just hitting lots of winners and really making me move a lot," Stosur said. "At that point I thought, 'Okay, I've got to obviously do something to change this.' So I tried to be a little bit more aggressive and really lean in off of the front foot a lot earlier in the rally than what I was doing until that point. That's what changed the match."


Azarenka has beaten Stosur in all of eight previous meetings, but there's an asterisk - their last two meetings, at the US Open last year and Rome this year, are the only three-setters in there.


"Sam has one of the best serves there is," Azarenka said. "She is also very athletic and puts this great spin on it and is never afraid to take chances. She's a great shotmaker as well. The US Open was an incredible match - she was right there on every point. It was such a high quality match from both of us that it was incredible. She'll be very motivated to beat me, as well - there's no doubt about that."


"Obviously I haven't got a very good record against her at all, but the last few times we've played have been pretty close," Stosur said. "I think a big part of it is the serve for me. She's probably the best returner in the game, and really makes you work on serve. I'm going to have to serve well and be patient in that area, and I have to return well too. The start of the points are pretty crucial. It's going to be tough. I'm sure there will be some up and down moments throughout the match tomorrow.


"But as long as I have some more up ones than down ones, hopefully it can be all right."

Don't worry guys! she knows what she's doing and It's good to balence up between tennis and whatever. BTW I was at Rogers Cup montreal on Tuesday and watched Dimitrov lost the first round.


He is still far from good comparing to other players. It Just a huge hype as far as I'm concern.


I agree that it's be good from time to time that Maria post a training session for fans .

Cincinnati Draw



Maria is playing her first tournament since June at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati next week.

The draw has been released and Maria is seeded third and has a bye in the first round.

In the second round, Maria will play either Sloane Stephens or a qualifier. Maria has played Stephens three times before and leads the series 3-0, here are the matches they have played against each other:
Miami 2012 R3: Maria won 6-4 6-2
Rome 2013 R3: Maria won 6-2 6-1
French Open 2013 R4: Maria won 6-4 6-3 

The first seed Maria can meet is no.14 seed Jelena Jankovic of Serbia in the third round.

Maria is playing her first and only US Open series event at Cincinnati ahead of the US Open beginning in two weeks time. Maria has played this premier 5 event twice and her best was winning in a dramatic final against Jankovic in 2011.
