The third seeded Bulgarian Victoria Azarenka has raced into the second round of the Australian Open at Melbourne Park after crushing young Englishwoman Heather Watson 6-1 6-0 in what was barely a warm-up.

Azarenka entered the Open in strong form after beating China's Li Na to win the Sydney International last week.
