Sony Ericsson Open: Victoria Azarenka def. Serena Williams to Win the Title
World number 10 Victoria Azarenka was playing in her first Premier final, against the number one player in the world, but she looked like a seasoned veteran during the match, in which she thoroughly dominated Serena Williams. The 19 year-old, Azarenka, continuously pressured Williams, who was battling quad and ankle injuries, and forced her to continuously run around the court.
For Azarenka, this was a long time coming, as she looked to be on her way to defeating Williams at the Australian Open, before she was forced to retire when she was visibly suffering from dizziness and heat exhaustion.
This victory will move Azarenka from 10th in the world rankings to 8th. Serena Williams will hold her spot at number 1.
