(AP) Second-seeded Victoria Azarenka overcame some shaky serving and uncharacteristic mistakes to easily beat an opponent who struggled even more.


Azarenka defeated Aleksandra Wozniak 6-3, 6-1 on Thursday in the second round of the U.S. Open. Azarenka had more unforced errors than winners (19 to 16), but Wozniak made 35 unforced errors.


Wozniak had missed most of the last year because of a right shoulder injury. She got into the U.S. Open on a special ranking of No. 41. The Canadian won just one of her eight service games.


Azarenka, the two-time Australian Open champ, will next face 26th-seeded Alize Cornet. Azarenka lost to Serena Williams in last year's U.S. Open final but defeated Williams for the second time this year in the Cincinnati final earlier this month.
