Azarenka improved her head-to-head against Kerber to 8-1 overall, as she first rallied from a break down in the first set by winning the final four games. 

After falling behind 5-2 in the second set, the two-time Australian Open champion pulled closer, saving a set point and winning two straight games, but Kerber ultimately served it out at her third opportunity.

The German was unable to capitalize on the momentum in the final set, however, as Azarenka surrendered just six points over the first five games to cruise through to a final meeting with No.2 seed Garbiñe Muguruza.

“I think that in the second set, I was coming back from 5-2 and I was really close to making it 5-all,” Azarenka said of the match’s conclusion.

“I was picking up my level from there, and I felt like I started the first couple of games [of the third] really strong, took my opportunities and was aggressive.”
