Elena Vesnina v Victoria Azarenka Live
Its the first round action at the French Open 2013 and womens third seeded Victoria Azarenka takes of Elena Vesnina of Russia in her opener.
Azarenka has managed to remain under the radar with Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova taking the cake for successive appearances in the finals of major tournaments but she did make it to the final at the Rome Masters last week.
Unfortunately for Azarenka she came up second against the top seeded Williams in the final at that event, after losing in the second round at Madrid and allowing Caroline Wozniacki a walkover at Indian Wells earlier this year.
Azarenka loves playing on hard courts as was evidenced in her form leading up to the clay court season but on these surfaces she has often lost her game.
Up against her will be Vesnina, who is coming off a three-match losing streak into the tournament. She’s 3-4 on clay this season and in their four meetings has lost all the four matches to Azarenka.
Fortunately for Vesnina, all these four matches have come on hard-courts which could allow the world number 38 bit of a chance to get moving in the right direction against her third seeded opponent.
