Watch Azarenka vs Serena (WTA Madrid Final)

In the two semi finals that were played Saturday, 9th seeded American Serena Williams beat L. Hradecka 7-6, 6-0, while the World no.1 Victoria Azarenka beat A Radwanska 6-2, 6-4.

As for the track record, like Serena had an upper edge over Sharapova, she also enjoys an upper edge over Azarenka since 2008 as in the seven matche played since between the two, Serena has won six matches, while Azarenka won only once against Williams at Miami in 2009.

In the last ten matches played by the two, Serena has a clean 10-0 victory record, while Azarenka faultered twice against Sharapova at Stuttgart and against Bartoli at Miami earlier this year. Serena's last victory was against World No.2 Maria Sharapova in the quarter finals of the ongoing WTA Madrid 6-1, 6-3.

Both would be vying for a win on Sunday - more so Serena who has been away from the tennis scene for a while and would want to clinch the victory and lift the silver.

The match is scheduled for Sunday, 13 May May 2012, 11:30 GMT.
