I'm so happy." Azarenka was not too upset about her win-streak being broken: "I have to be proud of what I have done in the last couple of months. I'm a human not a superwoman. I wish I could be, but I am not."
Venus stunned Bartoli will next face Agnieszka Radwanska who brought Venus Williams' comeback to a halt, downing the American 6-4, 6-1.
