Indian Wells (IANS): Top seed and former world No 1 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus eased past Poland's Urszula Radwanska in straight sets to reach the last eight of WTA BNP Paribas Open here.The 23-year-old defending champion, who remains unbeaten with a 14-0 run in 2013, needed 85 minutes to seal the 6-3, 6-1 victory, breaking the 37th-ranked Pole five times and saving three out of the four break points. In the men's event, World No 1 Novak Djokovic recovered strongly from a poor start to reach the fourth round in Indian Wells, where he will face US No 1 Sam Querrey. The Serbian was 2-5 down against Grigor Dimitrov in the first set when errors crept into his Bulgarian opponent's game, allowing Djokovic to emerge the winner by a score of 7-6(4), 6-1. Elsewhere, Britain's Andy Murray had few problems in his 6-3, 6-2 win over Taiwanese player Yen-Hsun Lu.
