Second-ranked Victoria Azarenka was hardly troubled in her second-round match against Romina Oprandi at Wimbledon, routing the Swiss player 6-2, 6-0 in just 51 minutes.

Azarenka converted five of her six break points and saved all four she faced to reach the third round for the sixth time in seven appearances at the All England Club.

The second-seeded Belarusian reached the semifinals here in 2011 and is looking for her second Gram Slam title after winning the Australian Open this year as part of a 26-match winning streak to start the season.

The two players had only met once before, with Oprandi winning 6-1, 6-1 on clay in 2007.
