Serena Williams was simply too good for Victoria Azarenka as she crushed the world number one in the final of the 2012 Madrid Masters.

Victoria Azarenka is the number one ranked women's tennis player and the Belarusian is having an incredible year, with four WTA titles, including the Australian Open, already won. However, there remains question marks over the 22-year-old and that is because Serena Williams has been injured.

The American may not have won a Grand Slam title since 2010 but she is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best female tennis player on tour and she proved it again by crushing Azarenka 6-1, 6-3 in the final of the Madrid Masters.

It was a powerful and dominant display from Serena, who broke her opponents serve in the opening game of the match without needing deuce and then simply bowled the world number one over with a display that evoked memories of her mid 2000s pomp.

The 30-year-old will leap up the world rankings thanks to Sunday's win and that means that she will definitely be one of the top seeds at the French Open. On this form, no-one will be able to live with Williams and she will win a 14th career Grand Slam title.

Serena Williams is a current best price of 7/2 at Blue Square to win the 2012 French Open.
