Italian Open 2023 Preview: Victoria Azarenka’s performances so far

Azarenka has a 10-6 record this year. The two-time Grand Slam winner has not had the best of seasons and despite her experience on the circuit has been beaten by a few young guns this year. But the 32-year old has started the Italian Open with convincing wins over Viktorika Golubic and Camilla Serrano over the past two days. The Belarussian will now face arguably her toughest opponent of the tournament.
