The Belarus, ranked eighth in the world, came through 6-1 6-4 in the same place in Key Biscayne two years ago.
Sharapova was unable to hold its first six games Azarenka service and held off a late comeback by the Russian Federation to win in one hour and 46 minutes.
The battle of the leggy blonde from Eastern Europe shriekers begins at 12:30 pm on Saturday at the Tennis Center at Crandon Park.
There, in the Stadium Court, eighth ranked Victoria Azarenka of Belarus on 13-ranked Maria Sharapova of Russia in the women’s final of the Sony Ericsson Open.
Both scream with every forehand and backhand.
“I think she is stronger,”said Azarenka Friday, the day after he defeated Vera Zvonareva -0, 6-3 in a semifinal that lasted one hour 16 minutes.” But yes, every time we have asked about that, and, you know, there is nothing we can do about it. … You’ll have to use earplugs.”
Earplugs or earplugs that do not, people will be treated with a final between a woman (Sharapova) who played in two finals of Sony Ericsson and lost two, and the other (Azarenka), which won its only final Sony – in 2009, when the world turned upside N? Serena Williams 6-3, 6-1.
“It’s very pleasant, the excitement here, [and] the amount of people come”, 5-10, 132 pounds, said Azarenka.” Above all, [Saturday] is the weekend, so even more? It is very nice fans here. I really appreciate that many people are coming.”
Azarenka, 21, has five career titles, the largest in Key Biscayne.
She is 5-6 in late career, and -2 overall against former world number one? A Sharapova. At its last meeting in the summer of 2010, Azarenka defeated Sharapova 6-4, 6-1.
“I have to be aggressive,”said Azarenka,” trying to get in myself, because that is what you enjoy doing. She has great service, great groundstrokes, so I have to try to bring this to her.”
The Sony Ericsson Azarenka has conquered opponents en route to the final? Qualifier Lucie Hradecka 7-5, 4-6, 6-0, No. Dominika Cibulkova 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, No. Anastasia Palyuchenkova -6, 6-1, 6-4, No. February 6 to 3 Kim Clijsters, 6-3, and Zvonareva.
Sharapova has conquered opponents: wildcard Petra Martic 6-3, 6-2; wildcard Sabine Lisicki 6-2, 6-0, No. Samantha Stosur 6-4, 6-1, No. 26 Alexandra Dulgheru? -6, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5), and No. 21 Andrea Petkovic 3-6, 6-0, 6-2?
Sharapova, 23, 22-11 in the final. He has lost three finals since winning her most recent title in Strasbourg, France in May 2010. The 6-2, 130 pounds is projected to return to the top 10 for the first time since the Australia Open, win or lose on Saturday.
After Petkovic defeated on Thursday, Sharapova was asked what it would mean winning the Sony Ericsson.
“It would mean a lot,”Sharapova said.” It’s the biggest tournament after the Grand Slams. As I said, I am very fortunate to be in the final after a tough few had previous rounds.
“Yes, I hope to go there and getting it done.”
