Seems the match didn't go on long enough between Victoria and Garbin as I can't find any new pictures or articles  :( Positive is big match with a former champion in Mauresmo on Saturday- so a big court and plenty of media coverage for this one :yahoo: :cheer:

Victoria will get her chance on the Rod Laver Arena tomorrow when she takes on former champion Amelie Mauresmo for a place in the last 16. The match is 2nd on in the day session, after Serena Williams vs Peng. Great chance now for Victoria to get a big victory on a big court :applause: :applause: :applause:
Then later in the day, Victoria is back on Court for her 2nd round doubles match with Zvonareva which is last match on Court 6 :applause:

Well done Victoria :yahoo: :grind dance: :shakey: :applause: What a good victory that was when you nsider Victoria was at most playing at 60-65% of her best level!! A former champion she has dismissed with plenty to spare and beaten her comprehensively. Victoria really impressed me with how she dealt with the Mauresmo slice and continued to try and finish off a few points at the net. That was mighty impressive today because Victoria won without being close to her best. Now for Serena  :)>>>>

She played well Chris.  That was my first time seeing an entire match from her.  She has skills. She has the fight.  But  - well - you know I've been a Serena fan longer than I have a Victoria fan so I have to pull for Serena in the next one.  But if you noticed my avator's writing  - I added Victoria's name to my list! :))

Women’s 13th seed Victoria Azarenka of Belarus has taken out Australian Open 2006 champion Amelie Mauresmo 6-4 6-2 in their third round singles match on Saturday.

Despite a lopsided scoreline, the match was a close contest, with Mauresmo getting the first break of serve. Both players struggled to hold for most of the first set, which featured five breaks of serve in 10 games. The Belarussian eventually prevailed with an extra break, serving for the set at 5-4 and holding.

The second set was much of the same, featuring four breaks of serve in eight games. Azarenka again came out victorious with two extra breaks over the French veteran.

Mauresmo saved two match points before succumbing with her 28th unforced error after an hour and 27 minutes.

The major difference between the players was unforced errors. Azarenka posted just three more winners than her opponent but had nine fewer unforced errors.

Azarenka next plays three-time Australian Open winner Serena Williams in what will be her maiden fourth round appearance at Melbourne Park. Williams defeated Azarenka 6-3 6-4 here in the third round last year in their only previous career meeting.

Quick facts

The 10-game first set was three minutes shorter than the eight-game second set

Mauresmo served five double faults; Azarenka had none

Mauresmo had 28 unforced errors to Azarenka’s 19

The Frenchwoman won just 33 per cent of points on her second serve; Azarenka managed 53 per cent on her own second serve

Mauresmo had the fastest serve of the match at 183km/h

Thats good then you got a chance to see a whole match of Victoria's, and you certainly have it right that she has the skills and the game, as well as plenty of fight. I already had figured you'd be supporting Serena in the 4th round so no worries, I'll be glad to have you back with me and Victoria come the quarter finals  :)) Yeah I noticed your writing under your avatar the other day and knew that Victoria had made a big breakthrough on you  :)
