Re: Rome R2: Victoria Azarenka def. Elina Svitolina 4-6 6-1 7-5
That was pure madness, how Azarenka turned that 3rd set around. And now Svitolina's reign in Rome has ended. To think where Azarenka was only a year ago here in Rome and where she is now, truly amazing. Not that Svitolina was in any way exceptional today, but this time last year Azarenka was getting tossed around pretty badly by Osaka in R1, the same Osaka who would be rolled over into a bagel and a breadstick by Halep in the very next round. Look at Azarenka now, beating the defending Rome champion only a year later.
She has Collins or Muguruza next, so I could see her making at least the quarterfinals now.
