Australian Open 2016, day two: Women’s round up

 

Australian Open 2016, day two: Women’s round up SOME 12 women’s seeds faltered in the opening round of the Australian Open but Victoria Azarenka never looked like joining them on Tuesday night.

Azarenka, who won the Brisbane International earlier this month, continued her strong form by dishing out a double bagel to Alison Van Uytvanck.

The Belarusian wasted little time on Rod Laver Arena, bossing Belgian Van Uytvanck around the court to complete a 6-0 6-0 victory in 53 minutes.

“I just tried to stay focused,” she said courtside after crushing her opponent.

Azarenka is back to full fitness after a frustrating 2015 campaign, during which she failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals at any grand slam.

Already the 26-year-old, who won the Australian Open in 2012 and 2013, looks like one of the most potent players in the draw. “I expect to have fun. I expect to take it day by day, it’s a long road” Azarenka said.

“I just want to enjoy the journey. Right now I just can’t wait to be out here again.” Azarenka next faces Montenegrin Danka Kovinic. Australian Open 2016, day two: Women’s round up
