Following a first round scare in which she was just five points from defeat, top seed Victoria Azarenka got back on track beating young German qualifier Dinah Pfizenmaier 61, 61.

Azarenka afterward talked about the difficulty of being the No. 1 player in the world.

“Being No. 1 is a difficult job, because everybody want to catch you, everybody want to move you from the spot,” Azarenka said. “You have to work like No. 2, No. 3, No. 4 and No. 100. You still have to put in a lot of work. Nothing is going to come easy just because you’re No. 1. You actually have more people trying to more people motivated trying to beat you.”

Azarenka will next play an old junior foe, Canadian Alexandra Wozniacki in the third round Friday.
