Second seed Victoria Azarenka of Belarus opened her bid for a third Australian Open title with a 7-6, 6-2 victory over World No.91 Johanna Larsson of Sweden on 14 January.

The Belarusian was made to work hard in the first set which lasted for 72 minutes. Finding her rhythm in the second set Victoria Azarenka took complete control of the game to see off the Swede within a span of some 30 minutes.

In round two the Belarusian will face Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic (84) that beat World No.86 Su-Wei Hsien of China 6-1, 4-6, 6-1 on 14 January.

Olga Govortsova of Belarus (90) will play Chinas Ying-Ying Duan (193) in the opener.

In the mens doubles Max Mirnyi of Belarus will team up with Russian Mikhail Yuzhny to face Nicholas Monroe of the U.S. and Horacio Zeballos of Argentina in round one.
