It’s rare a World No.1 goes six and a half months without winning a WTA title but it happened – but Victoria Azarenka put an emphatic stop to it in Beijing this past week, not losing a set, in fact barely losing any games, en route to the China Open title. She defeated Maria Sharapova handily in the final, 63 61, winning her fifth WTA title of the year and first since Indian Wells in mid-March. She now has 13 career WTA titles.

Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina won their first WTA doubles title together, and the Istanbul field was also set in stone,with Angelique Kerber, Petra Kvitova, Sara Errani and Li Na completing the elite eight.
