Tennis: Azarenka advances to US Open quarter-finals


Second seed Victoria Azarenka of Belarus advanced to the US Open quarter-finals on Tuesday by beating Serbian 13th seed Ana Ivanovic 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in a match postponed from Monday because of rain.

Two-time reigning Australian Open champion Azarenka, who lost to Serena Williams in last year's US Open final, will play for a berth in the semi-finals against Slovakia's 48th-ranked Daniela Hantuchova, with whom she has split four career meetings.
