After finding herself on the brink of elimination from the French Open on Monday, there were no such worries for world number one Victoria Azarenka today as she cruised past Dinah Pfizenmaier 6-1 6-1.
The top seed survived an almighty scare in the first round at Roland Garros as unheralded Italian Alberta Brianti pushed her all the way on Court Philippe Chatrier.
Trailing by a set and 0-4, the Australian Open champion fought back for a 6-7 (6/8) 6-4 6-2 win in two hours and 16 minutes two days ago. But it was all much more straightforward today as the 22-year-old toppled 20-year-old German in 55 minutes.
Azarenka encountered little difficulty against the world number 198. She lost the first game, but swiftly broke her opponent's serve to go 2-1 up and then raced through the rest of the first set.
Pfizenmaier crumbled early in the second set, soon finding herself 0-3 down, with numerous unforced errors speeding up the Belorussian's progression to round three.
Azarenka, whose victory in Melbourne in January was her maiden grand slam title, will next face Aleksandra Wozniak after the Canadian saw off 31st seed Jie Zheng of China 6-2 6-4.
