But as of Azarenka's, she was just too good on that day. Everything clicked for her on that day and Maria tried everything she could but also as Maria herself said, Azarenka was always one step quicker and she couldn't keep up with that. And jesus, Azarenka's redirection is unbelievable, every time she just managed to put the ball open court deep.
She has a amazing timing, Maria used to have a better one back in 2004/2005 but we know the player she became since then so.
