Two-time Australian Open winner and former world No. 1 Victorian Azarenka is off to a flyer against third seed American Jessica Pegula.
Azarenka raced out to a 5-2 lead and won the set 6-4 after breaking Pegula’s first and last service games.

“It’s a start full of swagger from the former world No. 1,” Sam Smith said on Nine.
“This is some performance so far. It really has been difficult for Pegula to make inroads here.
“It has been really clean, the tennis, from Victoria Azarenka. She’s used the pace well but at the same time she has applied spin when she needed to and used her slice very effective.
