Australian Open: Victoria Azarenka Defeats Zhu Lin, Enters QF


Melbourne [Australia]: Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka advanced to the quarterfinals of the ongoing edition after registering a win over China’s Zhu Lin in her round of 16 match at Melbourne on Sunday.

Victoria sealed the win in two hour, 40-minute affair by 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 to book her sixth QF spot in the tournament, having won it twice in 2012 and 2013. Zhu was praised by her Belarussian opponent after the match.

“She never gave up, no matter what the score was,” Azarenka said as per WTA.
“With this tennis, she has to be Top 20, because she played amazing. I would never heard of her before, I know she is coming from China — but there are so many players who can come out here and produce an amazing level.”

“Sometimes it helps when you know your opponent, but I did not know much about her and I had to adjust on the go. Today was blinding for me. She is an amazing player, I wish her luck for the rest of the year and I hope we will see a lot more of her,” said Azarenka.
78-ranked Zhu was making her first-ever appearance in the second week of a major tournament.
