New mum Azarenka marches on as Murray, Nadal wait at Wimbledon

New mum Azarenka marches on as Murray, Nadal wait at Wimbledon

The hill next to No. 1 Court at Wimbledon, formerly known as Henman Hill and also referred to as Murray Mound, was a coveted spot for Day 3 at the All England Club because Konta and Andy Murray were scheduled to play their second-round matches on Centre Court.

Victoria Azarenka says life back in tennis is completely different following the birth of her son, yet she is still enjoying the familiar feeling of winning.

Azarenka broke Vesnina's serve twice more in the second set to secure a match with Britain's Heather Watson. "I served well, and hardly made any unforced errors in that first set". "A little bit more outside of the tennis court for me to be able still to do what I love to do".

The 27-year-old is sporting a happy glow these days, and told reporters that she's experiencing a healthy life-balance with child Leo in tow, and a new sense of objective. She is, however, just returning from significant time away following the birth of her son. I felt good the last week, in particular, and just really continued that.

The leading betting company in terms of live streaming, Bet365 showcase over 70,000 events every year, including some of the biggest football matches of the season.

The draw is shaping up for Azarenka nicely at SW19.

Azarenka will face an in-form Watson, who sent 18th seed Anastasija Sevastova packing in a 6-0 6-4 win.

Wimbledon has previously been criticised for favouring male players, perhaps most memorably in 2011 when Serena Williams reacted with disappointment after she was told she would be playing on Court No 2.

She could do worse, with other, more unsafe grass players like Petra Kvitova, Karolina Pliskova and Garbine Muguruza lurking in other sections of the draw-for now. Azarenka is content to be experiencing tennis and motherhood in a whirlwind summer. Don't be surprised if she makes good on it sooner rather than later.
