Third-seeded Victoria Azarenka made short work of Irina-Camelia Begu on Tuesday, beating the Romanian 6-1, 6-3 in the second round of the Pan Pacific Open.

Azarenka, winner of two WTA Tour titles this season, closed out the match 1 hour, 15 minutes under clear skies at Ariake Colosseum, a day after rain forced the closure of the roof and disrupted play on the outer courts for several hours.

Begu was unable to break the Belarussian a single time during the contest, despite having nine chances. Azarenka won 72 percent of her first serves in the match.
