World number one Victoria Azarenka wasted little time in outlining her US Open title credentials on Monday as she scorched to a 6-0 6-1 first round victory over Russia's Alexandra Panova.

The Belarusian, who won her first grand slam title at the Australian Open in January, was at her very best as she raced through in just 50 minutes.

Azarenka has yet to go beyond the last 16 at the US Open but she outclassed world number 76 Panova with a performance full of power and precision.

The 23-year-old dropped just five points in the first set and maintained her momentum in the second to cruise into round two.
