Serena Williams vs. Victoria Azarenka
Azarenka upset Serena in Dubai when Serena just claimed back her number 1 spot. Can she do it again here? Well, Serena is in imperious form, bagelling opponents left and right no matter their rankings. It will be tough for Azarenka to repeat that feat on a surface that doesn't suit her. Serena is brimming with confidence and she will be ready to avenge her loss to the Belarussian a few months ago. She is just unstoppable.
Pick: Serena in 2 sets
