No. 1-ranked Azarenka into Brisbane semifinals

BRISBANE, Australia - Top-ranked Victoria Azarenka wasted no time in a 6-1, 6-0 win over Kazakh qualifier Ksenia Pervak yesterday, setting up a possible semifinal showdown with Serena Williams at the Brisbane International.

Azarenka, the reigning Australian Open champion, needed only 68 minutes to win her quarterfinal, breaking Pervak’s serve seven times.

Pervak had opened the tournament with an upset win over former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, but didn’t have anything left to trouble Azarenka after coming off back-to-back matches decided in third-set tiebreakers.

No. 3-ranked Williams was playing fellow American Sloane Stephens in a night quarterfinal. AP
