The way Ivanovic was serving, though, Azarenka was still in prime position to close the match, and sure enough, she broke Ivanovic again in the next game to advance.

It took 2 hours, 10 minutes, but the 2012 U.S. Open runner-up wasn’t going to fret about her uneven play.

"If I have to fight and dig deep to find a way not playing at your best against a player who was playing that good," Azarenka said, "I think it’s pretty remarkable to walk off the court with a win."
