Victoria Azarenka becomes first player to win 200 WTA 1000 matches with victory over Tatjana Maria

Former world number one Victoria Azarenka has achieved yet another milestone in her professional career. The 34-year-old is currently taking part in the ongoing Madrid Open where she registered her place in the round of 32 after beating Germany’s Tatjana Maria in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 6-1.
With that win, Azarenka became the first player in the history of women’s tennis to secure 200 wins in WTA 1000 events ever since they started back in 2009. Her closest rival on the list is the former world number one Simona Halep with 186 wins in WTA 1000 events. The Minsk-born will be hoping to continue her winning run in the competition after registering a record-setting win when she will face Spain’s Sara Sorribes Tormo in the third round on Saturday.
Azarenka is going through a decent season where she has put in some good performances but at the same time had some very ordinary outings as well. Her best outing came while playing at the Brisbane International and the Miami Open. In Brisbane, the two-time Grand Slam winner lost in the semifinal to the current world number two Aryna Sabalenka with a score of 6-2, 6-4. In Miami, Azarenka lost in the semifinal to Elena Rybakina with a score of 6-4, 0-6, 7-6.
