Monterrey: Azarenka downs Angie to reach final
Apr 07, 2019

Victoria Azarenka will contest her first singles final in over three years at the Abierto GNP Seguros on Sunday.

The No.5 seed came through a semifinal match of former World No.1s and Grand Slam champions against top seed Angelique Kerber, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 to reach her first singles final since returning to the WTA after the birth of her son Leo in December of 2016.

Azarenka improved her head-to-head against Kerber to 8-1 overall, as she first rallied from a break down in the first set by winning the final four games.

Angie will next play in Stuttgart, Madrid and Rome.
