Melbourne, Australia: Two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka made it all look routine Saturday in defeating unseeded Yvonne Meusburger 6-1, 6-0 in a third-round match at the Australian Open.
   



Azarenka broke Meusburger's serve twice in the first four games and was rarely troubled in exactly one hour to advance to a fourth-round match on Monday against American Sloane Stephens.
   
Next up on Rod Laver Arena was top-seeded Rafael Nadal against Gael Monfils, with the Spanish left-hander looking to maintain his dominance over Monfils -- he's won nine of 11 previous matches.
   
Earlier, the tennis love pair of Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov both advanced along with Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and 17-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer.
