Victoria Azarenka shined brightest thru a rain delay on Wimbledon’s Centre Court to clinch a three-set victory over Daniela Hantuchova.

The match was tied at one set all and with Hantuchova serving at 2-1 down when the rain came, forcing the players off court while the roof was closed. When play resumed, Azarenka was clearly fired up and pounced on Hantuchova’s serve to claim what proved to be the decisive break. Azarenka, the highest-ever ranked Belarusian woman, won 6-3 3-6 6-2 and will meet Nadia Petrova in the fourth round. “(The rain break) probably was to my advantage but I am actually really glad I stayed so composed, I went out there very motivated and focused. That was important,” said Azarenka. “Daniela is in big form right now and it was a tough battle. We had a lot of great rallies and she serves big so I had to stay tough, keep fighting and take the first chance I got.”
