Azarenka takes down Clijsters.

Wednesday night saw a battle between the past two Sony Ericsson Open women’s singles title holders – and Victoria Azarenka came out on top, brushing aside defending champion Kim Clijsters 6-3 6-3 to book her place in the semi-finals. The Belarusian was efficient in breaking Clijsters, converting six of her eight chances. Azarenka had lost four of their five head-to-head matches.

“I think I played a little bit more aggressive [than in the past], played more forward, tried to come in more. That was the biggest difference. And physically I was much more stable today,” Azarenka said afterwards.

The win gives Azarenka her best result of the season; she reached the quarter-finals at Indian Wells and Sydney. The No. 8 seeded Azarenka and 2009 champion now plays No. 3 seed Vera Zvonareva for a chance to reach the Miami final for the second time in three years. “I have to play at a high level, because she's a very consistent player,” assessed Azarenka.

“She's showing some of her best tennis in her life right now, so I definitely have to be aggressive and focused on my game to play forward, and have fun.”

The Russian owns a 6-2 advantage against Azarenka, but the two split their four meetings in 2010 – Azarenka won at the Australian Open and Doha, while Zvonareva won their latest two encounters in Montreal and the WTA Championships.

In all seriousness, tonight I saw reports on T.V. there have been traces of radiation found in milk. For sure the U.S. government is lying, they are telling the people that the amounts of radiation are non-factor. We had rain last week, heavy drizzle last Sunday, I can imply the term "Black Rain". I'm sure the radiation now has made its way to the ground and to the drinking water. Time will tell who is right the government or the skeptics like me. Temperature this week rose to the 90s and now there is talk that there is possible rain for Sunday.

Thank you Captain, I'm glad to be back although my eyes are still fry. I told my sister about the joke/stunt, she says you should block me from your site.

PS: I hope you don't block me. :P
