Vesnina played way above her actual ranking and at times she played out of her skin. Azarenka was pretty wasteful on occasions but to get a straight sets win even with that erratic serving is pretty respectable. Many very good points.
It was a fun match. Much closer than the scoreline suggests, and Vika was lucky to get through it. Elena played about as well as she could. She was playing like a top 10 player for the majority of the second set.
