Azarenka rallies to reach Indian Wells fourth round

Victoria Azarenka kept her Indian Wells WTA title defence on track on Monday as she rallied for a 3-6, 6-3, 6-0 victory over Belgian Kirsten Flipkens.

Azarenka remained unbeaten in 2013, having successfully defended her Australian Open title and her WTA Doha crown.

The 23-year-old from Belarus, currently ranked second in the world behind American Serena Williams, is vying to become the first woman to win back-to-back titles at Indian Wells since Martina Navratilova in 1990 and 1991.

In the round of 16 she'll face Poland's Urszula Radwanska, a 6-0, 7-6 (7/4) winner over American Jamie Hampton.
