Victoria AzarenkaVictoria Azarenka has become the second Belorussian player to enter the Top 10 in the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour rankings, after Natasha Zvereva in the 1980s.

The 19-year-old Azarenka reached the semifinals at the BNP Paribas Open in singles, while in doubles she won the title with Russian Vera Zvonareva, who was the eventual singles champion. These results enabled Azarenka to become a Top 10 singles player for the first time. Simultaneously, winning her second doubles title of the year, Azarenka climbed from No.18 to No.10 in doubles.
