When Victoria Azarenka served for the match at 6-4, 5-2 in her Rogers Cup semifinal against Tamira Paszek, I felt the break coming. I was not even watching the match--just the scoreboard-- but now that Paszek appears to be back in form, I expected her to complicate matters. She did. And when Azarenka served for the match at 5-4, Paszek broke her again. By this time, I was looking forward to a third set, but Azarenka broke at 5-all and went on to win, 6-4, 7-5.
Azarenka, the tournament's 11th seed, will play Dinara Safina in the semifinals.
