Russia looks good in Australian Open

In the third round of the Australian Open tennis tournament Russia’s Yelena Vesnina defeated Italy’s Roberta Vinci in three sets and is now bracing up for a showdown with the world N1 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus.

Svetlana Kuznetsova, also of Russia, ousted Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro to make it into Round 4. A fellow Russian, Maria Kirilenko, who outplayed Belgium’s Janina Vickmayer, will take on the world’s N3, Serena Williams of the United States.
