Second-ranked Victoria Azarenka cruised into the Wimbledon quarterfinals by routing former top-ranked Ana Ivanovic 6-1, 6-0 on Monday on Centre Court.

Azarenka converted five of her seven break points and saved all three she faced to wrap up the victory in little more than an hour.

The match was suspended by rain at 4-1 in the first set, forcing organizers to close the retractable roof over Centre Court. Azarenka continued to dominate when play resumed, and finished with 19 winners compared to six unforced errors.

Azarenka is the highest-ranked player left in the women's draw after No. 1 Maria Sharapova was eliminated by Sabine Lisicki.
