French Open 2011: Queen Victoria Azarenka Seeks Her First Crown in Paris
Perhaps the hottest player on tour coming into the French Open, Victoria Azarenka has won her opening round contest against Czech Andrea Hlavackova 6-3, 6-3 without too much difficulty.
In each set, the two players played toe to toe for the first six games. Once the set reached 3-3, Azarenka upped her game and blanked her opponent for the remaining games.
Azarenka’s elbow injury in Rome at the Italian Open forced her to retire in her quarterfinal match against Maria Sharapova after Azarenka had won the first set.
Unable to continue to play, the lady from Belarus retired down 0-3 in the second set. Until her injury, Azarenka looked to all the world like someone on her way to winning another major title.
After reaching the finals in Madrid and winning in Marabella, Azarenka’s clay court season has been nothing short of spectacular, especially when you consider how poorly she played on this surface a year ago.
No one is playing any better or more consistently coming into Paris and the 2011 French Open than Azarenka. She remains one of the favorites.
Azarenka has fought her way into the second round...
