Azarenka and Sharapova march into Indian Wells final

Azarenka to meet Sharapova in Indian Wells final on Sunday
All seems to be going well for the Indian Wells Tennis as today both World Number 1 Victoria Azarenka and World Number 2 Maria Sharapova marcehd into the final of the Indian Wells Tennis tournament.

Both victories have been hot favourites.

World Number 1 and Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka of Belarus beat  Germany's Angelique Kerber in straight sets 6-4 6-3 on Friday.

In the second semi final played early this morning, Ana Ivanovic of Serbia retired hurt from the second semi-final because of an injured left hip while trailing the Sharapova 6-4, 0-1. "I can't play, I can't push," a tearful Ivanovic told the chair umpire before withdrawing from her match in the last four.

Azarenka now faces second-seeded Maria Sharapova in Sunday's final. Sunday's title showdown will be a repeat of the Australian Open final when Azarenka won her first grand slam title with a crushing 6-3 6-0 victory over Sharapova in January early this year.
