Victoria Azarenka retained her Australian Open title with a tense 4-6 6-4 6-3 victory over China’s Li Na in a match that left one player in tears and saw the other writhing in pain. Azarenka’s joy saw her burst into floods of tears after securing a second Grand Slam title, while Li added the pain of failure to the physical pain she endured during the match. The Chinese star’s efforts were undermined by two dramatic incidents: a sickening ankle injury in the second set, and a fall in the final stages which sparked concussion fears as she hit her head on the court as well as twisting her ankle a second time.
