Victoria Azarenka

MIAMI, FL, USA - As Victoria Azarenka gears up for a showdown with Maria Sharapova in Saturday's Sony Ericsson Open final, it's an opportune time to explore her career history against Russians. She is 25-29 for a win percentage of 46.3% against Russians compared to 183-67 for a win percentage of 73.2% against everyone else. There's no shame in that, though, considering several of those Russians are former No.1s and/or Grand Slam winners. Also, she is on a four match winning streak against Russians, the best of her career, including her fourth round and semifinal matches this week in Miami.

Here is Azarenka's record against the 16 Russians she has player in her career:

Opponent Record
Anna Chakvetadze 3-2
Elena Dementieva 1-3
Maria Kirilenko 2-2
Alisa Kleybanova 1-0
Svetlana Kuznetsova 1-4
Ekaterina Makarova 2-1
