That would be nice. But the main key is the serve.
Azarenka's return is ridiculous by wta standards, but if you have a big serve- and Julia does- you can stop her from using her main weapon. Serena of course beats Azarenka this way, she beats all the girls this way. Most people struggle to do this against Vika but if you take into account the surface, indoor hard, it's a bit easier for Julia to serve, so if she serves out of her mind she can give Azarenka some trouble. If her serve is subpar in any way she may struggle to hold at all, like all of Vika's opponents so far this week (generally speaking they are broken in their first service game by her).
