Azarenka vs kerber
Head to head 6 1
Key Stat: With her victory over Konta on Wednesday, Azarenka has assured a return to the Top 5 next week.
Scorching-hot victoria Azarenka is now two matches away from becoming the first player to claim the elusive Indian Wells-Miami "Sunshine Double" since 2005. Standing in her way on Thursday is kerber, the only player to have registered a victory over the Belarusian this season.
It's a trend Azarenka is very excited about. "If you compare to Australia it's a big difference from Indian Wells and here," Azarenka said of her serve. "I'm really trying to work on it and make adjustments to use it more as a weapon." Azarenka is currently the WTA's leader in percentage of service games won in 2016.
