No Gravy for Azarenka, She Wants to Win Wimbledon

But this is a new and improved Watson and the world No. 102 continued to produce powerful strokes as she overcame her first hurdle in the inevitable battle that was set to commence.

Her run to the last-32 following an impressive showing at Eastbourne where she reached the semi-final has given her confidence.

"That it is so useless - life now is far more meaningful". She plays really well. While many feel that she has rushed back and that the focus of her returning campaign is the summer hard-court season, she has certainly set out her stall - and is not underestimating Watson despite her dominant record over her.

"I'm much older than I was", Azarenka said.

Azarenka, 27, who plays Britain's Heather Watson today, has been speaking this week about the challenges of juggling a professional tennis career with motherhood.

"Definitely these are the matches that you're looking for, trying to find a way when not everything goes great so I was very happy that I was able to stay tough and find other ways to win".

"Starts are important but I'm really happy with the second set because she raised her level". I lost to her I think 7-6 in the third there, so it was a very close match. "I still feel you should figure it out yourself". "I obviously have a lot of respect for every opponent that I play and not take anything for granted".

Watson will, of course, have a Centre Court crowd roaring her on, just as it did in 2015 when she served for the match against the mighty Serena Williams before losing a thriller.

After saving two break points with a couple of snappy serves in the opening game, Watson stormed into a 4-1 lead, repelling Azarenka's ominous baseline game with some measured groundstrokes.

Azarenka's ranking of 683 is also ludicrously false after the Belarusian gave birth to her first child, Leo, in December.

"I think Vika is an incredible player and person", Watson said.

Two-times champion Kvitova, who was playing only her third event this year after recovering from a knife attack at her home, did not look at her best as she struggled against Brengle. "I know she has only just come back, but I expect her to be playing really well because I know she will have put in the hours and the work".
