Azarenka beats Jankovic at WTA Championships

Victoria Azarenka of Belarus made a winning debut Tuesday in the WTA Tour's season-ending Sony Ericsson Championships, defeating Jelena Jankovic in the first round-robin group match.
Azarenka took advantage of the Serb's shaky forehand to win 6-2, 6-3 and take a step closer to the knockout rounds of the lucrative tournament.
Azarenka broke the error-prone Jankovic five times and converted her first match point with a forehand winner down the right line.
Later Tuesday, second-ranked Serena Williams faced Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia and her sister Venus played Elena Dementieva.
The tournament features the top eight players in the world, with four women in each group. The top two from each group advances to the semifinals.
