Melbourne, Australia, 6 June 2013 |

Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka will do battle in the French Open semifinals (tonight AEST), just as they did in the final at Australian Open 2012.

You can re-live that Grand Slam decider in the AOTV Vault, a match that saw Azarenka crowned as a major champion for the first time in her career.

Both Sharapova and Azarenka has arrived in the final following thrilling wins in a pair of terrific women’s semifinals – Azarenka had ousted sentimental favourite Kim Clijsters in three sets before Sharapova pipped the big-hitting Petra Kvitova, 6-4 in the third.

When they arrived for the Saturday night final, Sharapova looked sharp in the early stages of the match while Azarenka struggled, the nerves of the big occasion – her first ever Grand Slam final – clearly a factor.

But as the Belarussian settled, her game flowed.

And as the match unfolds in the AOTV Vault, you can see how the soon-to-be-anointed world No.1 stormed to an impressive straight-set victory.
