S. Williams, Azarenka into quarter-finals


Seventh seed Victoria Azarenka has come from a set and 4-2 down to win the final 10 games of the match, beating Russia’s Vera Zvonareva 4-6 6-4 6-0 to reach the Australian Open quarter-finals for the first time.

“She played good, I just tried to keep fighting even when I was down, I knew I could stay with her. I just had to believe in myself.” Azarenka said in a courtside interview.

Defending champion Serena crushed Australian hope Samantha Stosur 6-4, 6-2 on Rod Laver Arena.

“When someone's playing that aggressively and not giving you anything at all, she's pretty hard to beat,” Stosur said.
