Azarenka Continues Comeback, Beats Vesnina To Reach Wimbledon Third Round

Azarenka Continues Comeback, Beats Vesnina To Reach Wimbledon Third Round”

Don't be surprised if she makes good on it sooner rather than later.

But she believes it is time the women's Tour provided more on-site facilities for players with children, pointing out that the ATP has nurseries at their tournaments for dads who bring along their kids.

"I have absolutely no idea how it feels to have a baby on tour or how she manages that, you know?" ninth-ranked Dominika Cibulkova said. While Azarenka's story is endearing, Petra Kvitova's boggles the mind. She acknowledged the disadvantage of female tennis players, saying that, "The guys have the luxury to never stop their career and for girls it's tougher".

A Wimbledon spokesperson commented that scheduling was a "complex operation and there will inevitably be variations from year to year depending on the way the draw falls".

Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams survived a scare to beat China's Wang Qiang and move into the third round of the women's singles.

In fact, after winning a warm-up tournament in Birmingham, Kvitova is being considered the favourite for a third title.

"Well, I mean, it changed me completely in so many ways".

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. I really don't think there are enough W's to properly convey my feelings here. "I think it was one of those matches where it was going to just be decided at the very last minute". "She looks like she feels comfortable coming into this match, to me, it's just another match". "But overall, I felt like I played really good on the important moments, which gave me opportunities to win comfortably today".

While the top two seeds Angelique Kerber and Simona Halep don't set pulses racing with their steady method of play, the likes of Karolina Pliskova, Elina Svitolina and French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko are among a sparkling group of players in the chasing pack, determined to own the stage. But on Wednesday, the 27-year-old's serves were strong and accurate. She also has a title on the year, making Azarenka's win even more impressive.

Cibulkova, seeded eighth, nearly had to rearrange her wedding previous year following a surprise run to the quarter-finals but has no such distraction this time round.

World No 1 Serena Williams is also expecting her first child this autumn, ramping up pressure on Wimbledon organisers to be more child-friendly, and create an environment that is supportive of young mums. "It's different surface, and different conditions, you have to play different here".
