What many thought to be expected, world no.1 Victoria Azarenka was taken aback by US Open and Wimbledon Champion world no. 3 American Serena Williams 6-4, 6-4. Thus Azarenka failed to avenge her defeat at the hands of Williams at the US Open finally this year.
Azarenka had just yesterday overcome a strong resistance from German Angelique Kerber and lost the first set 6(11) -7(13). But regained the match and beat the German winning the next two sets 7(7)-6(2), 6-4. And it was thought that she would not be a hot pie for Serena to eat easily. But Serena found it easy to beat Azarenka just like that.
In the first match fo the Day-3, 7th ranked Chinese Na Li beat 6th ranked German Angelique Kerber 6-4, 6-3. Na Li was earlier beaten by Serena Williams 7(7)-6(2), 6-3 on Day 2.
