Melbourne - Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka continued her Melbourne Park comeback Saturday with a straight sets win over Barbora Zahlavova Strycova to reach the last 16.

Azarenka downed the Czech 25th seed 6-4, 6-4 to set up a fourth round meeting with last year's finalist Dominika Cibulkova, seeded 11.

Former world number one Azarenka, 25, is unseeded this year as she returns from a horror 2014 which saw her battling injury and depression as her ranking slid to 44.
