Victoria Azarenka produced a brilliant display of tennis to dispatch world No. 3 Jessica Pegula and reach the Australian Open semifinals. The two-time Australian Open champion rolled back the years to beat Pegula, one of the most consistent players on the women’s tour over the past couple of seasons and remaining favourite, 6-4 6-1 in just one hour and 37 minutes. It marks Azarenka’s best performance in Melbourne, as she advances to a second grand slam semifinal since 2020.
