16/09/2020, at 08:00 GMT
Internazionali BNL d'Italia
Venus Williams leads in head to head 6-2.
In the last four matches between tennis players the score is 2-2.
Azarenka won the only one-on-one meeting on clay.
After reaching the final at the US Open, Victoria Azarenko did not withdraw from the tournament in Rome and immediately went to Italy. Competition organizers have prudently pushed her first round match to Wednesday. The Belarusian tennis player has risen to 14-th place in the ranking. Now there are chances of getting to the Final Tournament. And in Rome Vicki has points for last year's quarterfinals. At the very least, we think there should be no problems with motivation.
Azarenka started her post-quarantine hard streak in Lexington with a defeat from Venus Williams. Over the past three weeks, the Belarusian tennis player has improved a lot, gained an excellent form. Physically, Victoria is also in perfect order. It's time to take revenge on Venus for that defeat in Lexington.

Every year Venus Williams is doing worse and worse. However, the 40-year-old tennis player is not going to retire. At the moment, Venus is only in 70-th position in the WTA rankings. At this rate, with multiple losses in the starting matches, Williams could fly out of the top 100.
In the 2020 season, the experienced American won only one match at the WTA tournaments. She managed to win just against Victoria Azarenka in Lexington, when the Belarusian tennis player was just getting in shape (6-3, 6-2).
At the US Open Venus Williams lost to Karolina Mukhova in the first round (3-6, 5-7). The fight in Rome against Azarenka will be her first on clay of the season.
In the line of bookmakers for the match, there are obvious expectations of a decline in Victoria Azarenka after serious stress in New York and a flight to Rome. Indeed, in her current form, the Belarusian tennis player looks much more convincing than her rival. Victoria herself noted that it is now important for her to continue to win and clearly not with an excursion she went to Rome. Moreover, there are chances for the final tournament. We offer a forecast for the victory of the Belarusian tennis player.
