Victoria Azarenka going for rare double
Victoria Azarenka hoisted the year's first major trophy at the Australian Open.
Victoria Azarenka is looking to join a short list of women who have won the Australian Open and the French Open in the same year. In the Open Era, only four women have accomplished the feat, most recently in 2001 when Jennifer Capriati went back-to-back in the year’s first two majors. But the red clay has proved challenging for Azarenka. The French Open is the only major where she hasn’t reached at least the semifinals. The third-seeded Azarenka plays Elena Vesnina in the first round.
