Azarenka was made to work hard for her win by the hard-hitting Lisicki, who traded punishing ground strokes with the top seed but was let down by a high error rate —36 unforced errors compared with only nine from her opponent.
Lisicki had eight break points on Azarenka’s serve but was only able to convert three, while Azarenka broke Lisicki six times.
