Victoria Azarenka, the former number 1 in the world who now occupies 32nd place in the WTA ranking, has qualified for the semifinals on Wednesday at the prestigious WTA 1000 tournament of Indian Wells in the United States.


The 32-year-old Belarusian defeated American Jessica Pegula (WTA 24) in straight sets (6-4, 6-2) and is now just two wins away from a third overall win in the California desert, following her triumphs in 2012 and 2016.

The 24-year-old Latvian, winner of Roland Garros in 2017, defeated American Shelby Rogers (WTA 44) after a battle of 2 hours and 15 minutes in three sets (6-4, 4-6, 6-3).

In the last two quarterfinals, Tunisian Ons Jabeur (WTA 14) faces Estonian Anett Kontaveit (WTA 20). The German Angelique Kerber (WTA 15) looks the Spanish Paula Badosa (WTA 27) in the eye.
