In yet another impressive performance Serena Williams overthrew Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 6-3 on Sunday to win the Madrid Open in a fit of strength that left her top-ranked opponent smashing her racket to the ground in frustration.
The women played out their short lived match on a brand new blue clay court that featured big service and fierce returns.
Serena started out the match with four straight games and then witnessed very little battle from Azarenka throughout the rest of the match.
Williams is confident that her play will only get better after returning from a yearlong illness.
“I can still do better,” said Williams. “This is really good. I have been working hard. I had some tough battles and really unfortunate circumstances so I really love this.”
In dominating her match Serena Williams served 14 aces to claim her 41st title and the second of this season.
Williams is now unbeaten during her last 13 matches on clay.
Hitting into double-faults, missing opportunities and otherwise refusing to play like a player who has won their last four tournaments Victoria was simply no match for a well rested and focused Serena Williams.
When all was said and done the match lasted just 64 minutes and ended when Serena Williams scored her final ace.
After the match and her humiliating loss Azarenka said of her opponents win:
“I want to congratulate Serena for a great week. She did a great job.
