Victoria Azarenka has continued her amazing year so far and is now 17 wins and 0 losses. Azarenka defeated Samantha Stosur 6-1 6-2 in the Doha final yesterday.
“I think that one point at the beginning of the match really saved my butt a little bit – you know, I hit the net,” Azarenka said. “But I was trying to be really aggressive and not let her command it, because that’s what she likes to do. She has a huge serve, and the first shot, that’s where she puts the opponent on the run, and you run so far behind the baseline. I tried to take that away from her.
“It feels amazing to win this title. I have been coming here quite a few times, also for the WTA Championships, and I never even reached the final, so for me it’s extra special to win here. I really like this tournament a lot.”
