#1 Victoria Azarenka
5'10" 132lb RH 2H-BH

#9 Serena Williams
5'9" 150lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday in Spain, in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open, this year's green clay champion at Charleston, 30 year old 9th seeded #9 (and former #1) Serena Williams from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, defeated last year's Madrid finalist (and this year's champ at Indian Wells and the Australian Open), 21 year old top seeded #1 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), 6-1, 6-3 (Victoria is shown during the match; Serena is shown with the very odd Madrid hardware afterward).

    Serena's prize is €631,000; Vika's prize is €313,000.

    Serena struck 14 aces, with 3 double faults, and scored on 4 of the 5 break points she reached against Victoria while totaling 54 points in the match. Vika hit no aces, with 6 DFs, while failing to convert the one break points she reached against Serena, and totaling 33 points in the match. Aces & double faults alone accounted for 17 of the 21 points distance between the two players.

    Serena said: "This is really good. I have been working hard. I had some tough battles and really unfortunate circumstances so I really love this... I think Victoria is the player to beat." AP story - WTA story

    Victoria said: "I want to congratulate Serena for a great week. She did a great job... I can take the positive things from what I've been doing all week, and then see the clear picture of what I need to improve."

    Serena now leads Victoria 7-1 in career matches. Their previous meeting was last year on a Deco-Turf hardcourt in the 3rd round of the US Open, when Serena defeated Victoria 6-1, 7-6(5).

    13 time Grand Slam singles champion Serena is now 41-15 in WTA singles finals. Serena won the 2010 Australian Open and Wimbledon titles, then stepped on broken glass at a restaurant after Wimbledon and was sidelined for about 11 months, during which she also suffered from a pulmonary embolism. Upon returning to play last year she won the Stanford and Toronto titles.
    Serena has a 23-2 singles match record in 2012. Her two losses were to Caroline Wozniacki (in the quarterfinals at Miami) and to Ekaterina Makarova (in the 4th round of the Australian Open).

    2012 Australian Open champion Victoria is now 12-10 in WTA singles finals. She won this year at Sydney, Melbourne, Doha and Indian Wells, and last year at Miami, Marbella and Luxembourg. Vika has a 34-3 singles match record this year, losing only to Serena, Marion Bartoli (in the Miami quarterfinals) and Maria Sharapova (in the Stuttgart final).

    Asked about the complaints by ATP players including Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal concerning the slipperiness of the blue clay courts, Serena joked: "We ladies don't complain, we just do our best. On the WTA [Tour] we are real performers, we are not about going out there and being weenies." Reuters story

Three of the courts are inside a single building called La Caja Mágica (The Magic Box), with independently-retractable roofs for each of those three courts. Court Manolo Santana seats over 12,000 fans, Court Arantxa Sanchez Vicario seats 3194, and Court Stadium 3 seats 2730. design & constr. pics

    2011 Madrid finalist Victoria said: "I was really looking forward to the start of this tournament. Anywhere I go my goal is to win the tournament, and it's the same goal here. I did pretty well here last year and hopefully this year I'll do a little bit better."

n2 s2 Maria Sharapova RUS d n56 Irina-Camelia Begu ROU 6-0, 6-3 Sun

Maria launching a forehand on the run

    About the unique surface at Madrid, Maria said: "The blue clay is obviously different, visually. When you play on red clay for so many years you get used to it, but as tennis players we're always adjusting to different things and different conditions, so it is what it is. There are some parts of the courts that maybe have a little more clay than other parts, but it's just the first year, so I'm sure they're still working kinks out."

Samantha's forehand drive

    Samantha said: "Petra was playing really well, and it really went down to the wire today. I thought my level got better and better as the match went on, and the last half of the third set was the best tennis we played. It was really tight, really close. I'm very, very pleased to get through that one."

n6 s6 Caroline Wozniacki DEN d n38 Ksenia Pervak KAZ 7-6(5), 3-6, 6-4 Sun

Caroline after winning a point

    Caroline won despite a 1st set ankle injury. Caroline said: "I went down and rolled my ankle in the first set. I could feel the pain. I felt restricted out there, but I just fought as hard as I could, which is all I could do today. I don't really know how I was able to win the match. I'm not playing tomorrow, so a day of rest will be nice, then we'll see."

    Varvara said: "It had been a long time since we last played, I think I was only 16 or 17, so I didn't really know what to expect today. But when we played back then it was three sets and I was inexperienced and didn't know much, and now I'm playing a lot better, so I was a lot more confident going into the match."

    "I'm feeling really good now. Last year at this time I think I was hardly Top 200 and just trying to play qualifying, and now I'm almost Top 30, playing all the WTA tournaments I want and Grand Slams, and almost seeded at the Grand Slams too. It definitely a very, very strange feeling for me right now.
    "This is a really nice tournament and I just want to enjoy it."

    "In the second set [Simona] got back in it and played amazing. I have to give her credit for that, and I'm glad to pull the victory out today.
    "A match like that can be good. We hit a lot of balls and I was able to get that clay court mentality right away. I have to keep remembering I'm on clay."

    About the 2nd set, Victoria said: "I feel like I lost a little bit of my concentration. I don't think I adjusted well to some of the obstacles that happened, but I'm glad I could turn it around pretty quickly and finish the match. Sometimes you can have those rollercoasters, and Andrea is one of those players who doesn't give you a rhythm. I'm glad I finished it—and there's room to improve."

    The roof can be closed on three of the courts at the Madrid venue, La Caja Magica. About the open and shut capabilities, Maria said: "The good thing about indoors is you pretty much know what you're going to get in terms of the conditions. You don't have to worry about the wind or anything, so it's a plus that with this ever-changing weather we could have the roof. We actually didn't know until the last minute if it was going to be open or closed—but you just try to focus on what's ahead."

    It was Lucie's first win over a top 10 player. Lucie said: "This one was a little bit strange because we are good friends, and we were even laughing with each other on the way to the court. I knew if I played strong and concentrated on my serve I had a chance to win. We played at the end of last year in some club matches and I won, and also we've played a lot of sparring games from Fed Cup. We know each other's games pretty well."

n4 s4 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n27 Sara Errani ITA 6-0, 6-1 Wed

Agnieszka's forehand drive

    Agnieszka's win broke a 16 match clay court winning streak by Sara. Agnieszka said: "I was playing my best. I was really ready for this match. [Sara had] won three tournaments on clay, so she's very good on this surface."

I want to keep working on things and try to do them better. I really do love this surface and want to keep winning."

Ana's service toss

    Ana said: "It was a great first set—Nadia started really well, and I didn't do much wrong either. In the second set I started serving better and putting more pressure on her with my forehand, which I think was the big difference.
    "I love clay. I grew up on it. The blue clay is a little more slippery, but it's the same for everyone, so you just have to stay focused as usual."

    About her 3rd round opponent, #1 Victoria Azarenka, Ana said: "Vika has been playing extremely well lately, and it's a challenge for anyone against her. When I saw the draw I really wanted to get to this round and challenge myself against the world #1. I hope I can bring the same level as I did today. I'm going to compete and we'll see how it goes."

    Anabel said: "It was very difficult to return [Sorana's] serve today, so I had to be focused and wait for my moments. At the end of the match I could really feel the support from the crowd. I saw all the people wanting me to do well here at home, so I was just giving it my best at the end of the match."

*n73 q Varvara Lepchenko USA d n54 Shahar Peer ISR 7-6(2), 6-4 Tue

Vika and Ana delivering forehands on the run

    Victoria scored on 4 of the 7 break points she reached against Ana while totaling 71 points in the match; Ana converted only 2 of her 6 break points against Vika while totaling 66 points.

    Ana led 4-1 in the 1st set. Vika said: "Ana started really strong and I was a little bit too slow and not really aggressive enough, but I knew I could turn it around. I just needed to get a small opportunity, and that's it. I just tried to stay in the moment and keep applying what wasn't really working at the beginning. I just tried to do the same things but execute them better."

    Ana said: "It was frustrating, because I just let it slip. I would feel a little bit better if at least [Victoria] had earned it, but I kind of let it slip with a few unforced errors. I think that's where the match probably turned around... [Still] I'm excited for the next few weeks and I really feel like I played great matches here."

Especially here it's hard to run because the courts are slippery, and her serve was a big weapon the whole match today, so there were pretty much no breaks. She started very well and it was really tough." WTA story

Na and Vika fielding forehands

    Victoria said: "[Na] was pretty unbelievable in the first set, hitting all the lines and all the corners, so I didn't really have a chance, especially on the return. There are a lot of things I had to change and come up with in order to surprise her."

    About playing Agnieszka Radwanska (0-5 vs Vika this year) in the semis, Victoria said: "I've played her five times this year, but every match is different and I never look back on any of these matches. She's a very tough opponent whenever we play and I have a lot of respect for her game. She has been showing incredible tennis this year."

*n9 s9 Serena Williams USA d n2 s2 Maria Sharapova RUS 6-1, 6-3

Maria serving, Serena driving a backhand, and after match point

    Serena said: "Playing Maria you have to be really ready because she does everything really well. I felt relaxed out there, and when I play relaxed I play better. And for some strange reason, it's sometimes easier to be relaxed in the later stages of tournaments, and not be so uptight. I don't know the reason. I feel like I'm getting better and I just want to continue to do that."

    Maria said: "Serena started off the match really well. It was tough to get into that first set. She was serving really well; I had a few opportunities but it just didn't go my way this time, but I still have one more tournament before Roland Garros. I'm excited to go back and defend my title in Rome next week."

n4 s4 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n73 q Varvara Lepchenko USA 6-4, 6-4

Varvara and Agnieszka driving backhands

    Agnieszka said: "There were a lot of long games. Varvara has been playing very well here. She was making a lot of good shots and good angles and had me in trouble in both sets. She's especially difficult to play given she's a lefty. I'm happy I could reach the semifinals of such a big tournament."

    About playing Victoria Azarenka (5-0 vs Aga this year) in the semis, Agnieszka said: "Vika is No.1 and playing very good tennis, so for sure I'll have to play 100% to beat her. I didn't play well enough the last couple of times, but we've had good matches in the past and I will try my best tomorrow again."

*n98 q Lucie Hradecka CZE d n5 s5 Samantha Stosur AUS 7-6(8), 7-6(6)

Samantha and Lucie serving

    Neither Lucie nor Samantha's serve was broken during the match. Lucie finished with 19 aces and 4 double faults; Samantha struck 3 aces, with 3 DFs.

    Lucie said: "I was concentrating on my serve today, then just trying to play my best after that. It's an amazing feeling. I've never had this feeling from my singles before—I had a similar feeling winning the French Open last year in doubles, but it's different in singles because you're alone on the court.
    "When the last point was over and I won, I looked at my coach and smiled, and I think the smile will last all evening, maybe even until tomorrow morning."

Victoria serving, Agnieszka and Victoria driving backhands, and Vika after match point

    Vika now leads Aga 11-3 in career matches, and Victoria has won all six of their meetings this year.

    Victoria said: "Agnieszka has a different style. She likes to make you move, changes the pace and throws off your rhythm, and she's very good with her hands and tries to come in. I play more aggressively. I try to take control. We have different styles of game, and today I feel like I was playing very well.

    "The second set it got a little bit more even today. I don't think I played that well during my service games but I was able to come back playing well right after on the return. I think it was a good match. I'm happy with how I played."

    Agnieszka is now 32-6 for the season—and all of her losses have been to Victoria Azarenka. Agnieszka said: "It's always disappointing to lose, and it's too bad to keep losing against the same player, but she's #1. It's nice I've been able to beat every other player this year, and I have to look at the positives. It was a good week here. I'm looking forward to playing in Rome next week."

    About the final, Victoria said: "[Serena is] one of the best players in the world and one of the toughest opponents to play against... We had a very good match at the US Open last year, so I can take some positive things out of that one."

    Serena said: "[Lucie] served amazing in the first set. I came through in tiebreak, and after that I was able to relax, make less errors and make some shots. I was more aware in the second set. I think that helped me."

    Lucie said: "In one week I think I've gotten more [ranking] points than I did the first half of the year. It was a great week for me, my first time in Madrid, and I played very well. I beat two top 10 players [Petra Kvitova & Samantha Stosur], both Grand Slam champions, which is very good for my mind. I know I can play with the top players now. It will be very good for me."

    About the final, Serena said: "Victoria has been so consistent. She is so consistent, so amazing and just so nearly perfect. I am going into the final with nothing to lose. She's the top-ranked player, and she's going in there with everything to win."
