Even the Eternal City isn't safe from Mother Nature's whimsies. Rain plagued play on Wednesday in Rome, but Victoria Azarenka is making the best of it. 

"Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about [learning] how to dance in the rain," she wrote.

The Belarusian is having a solid time in Rome having upset Elina Svitolina in round two on Tuesday. Svitolina was the defending champion. 

Ashleigh Barty reacted to Azarenka's post asking "Can you teach me?".  

Barty is the No. 8 seed at the WTA Premier, and both are awaiting the winners of second-round matches. All of Wednesday's matches were cancelled. Notably, Roger Federer's return to Rome got pushed back to Thursday.
