NEW YORK (Reuters) - Victoria Azarenka charged into the third round of the U.S. Open on Thursday with a 6-3 6-1 win over Canada’s Aleksandra Wozniak.

Last year’s U.S. Open runner-up, Azarenka had some problems with her serve on a windy day and was broken three times.

But the world number two was always in control of the match and cruised to victory in a little over an hour.

Her opponent in the third round is Alize Cornet of France, the 26th seed, who beat Croatia’s Ajla Tomljanovic 6-2 6-2.
