6-0 6-0, wow, a reigning GS champion! Is she injured? Her pride for sure. Didn't think she had any business winning a GS title.
“I think consistency was the key to the scoreline,” Azarenka said. “I feel that I played really smart tennis today—I was able to use a lot of the court, and I was able to use a lot of different pace. So I’m really happy about that. But the key to the scoreline was to maintain the level I started with.”
The two had played once before, with Kenin winning a two-hour, 32-minute marathon in the quarterfinals of Acapulco in February 2019, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5, after Azarenka served for it at 5-4 in the third.

I only get rattled because she still shows glimpses of brilliance which allows
me to get my hopes up only to have them inevitably dashed!
