World No 2 Victoria Azarenka will take on Agnieszka Radwanska in the Women's Singles quarter finals of the 2014 Australian Open at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Wednesday.

Where to Watch Live

The match is set to start after the quarter final clash between Simona Halep and Dominika Cibulkova, which starts at 12am GMT. British Eurosport and British Eurosport 2 are providing live coverage in the UK. Regular updates and live scores are also available on the Australian Open official website.


Azarenka sealed a place in the quarter finals after registering a comfortable victory over Sloane Stephens in straight sets 6-3, 6-2 during the fourth round of the tournament. The 24-year-old just took a little over 90 minutes to make progress in the ongoing Australian Open.

Meanwhile, Radwanska made it to the final eight after defeating Garbiee Muguruza in straight sets 6-1, 6-3. The match lasted for 77 minutes with the second set taking just over half-an-hour as the World No 5 made it to the quarter finals of the tournament.

The Belarusian had won the tournament in the last two years and would be looking to win the Australian Open for the third year in a row. However, Radwanska will be looking to thwart Azarenka's hopes of retaining the crown by registering a victory over the World No 2 in the quarter finals.

The winner of the clash between Azarenka and Radwanska will face either Halep or Cibulkova in the semi-final clash. In the other semi-final encounter, Na Li of China will take on Eugenie Bouchard.

What They Said

Victoria Azarenka: "It was a tough match but I was ready to battle for as long as it took. I'm glad I could find my rhythm and go for my shots. I just love playing here. It feels so cosy, it feels like home."

Agnieszka Radwanska: "I'm very happy I could play my best tennis, I knew I had to be 100 percent tonight. It's the quarter-finals, I'm playing great at these championships and I have nothing to lose."


Azarenka has a comfortable lead over Radwanska as the Belarusian has a 12-3 advantage in the overall meetings. The pair have met in two grand slam fixtures and the World No 2 won it once. Azarenka holds a 5-0 lead over Radwanska in the last five meetings between the pair.

Australian Open

Azarenka has faced Radwanska only once in the Australian Open, with the World No 2 winning in 2012 on her way to claiming the Women's Singles crown.
