But whatever happens on Friday, Azarenka thinks the second chapter of her career can be better than the first.

“I still believe I have my best tennis ahead of me,” she told Reuters in the build-up to Wimbledon at the Mallorca Open,” she said.

“I know that I’ll get to the point where everything that I’m putting in, will be rewarded. It’s a new step in my career and an exciting one.”
