The winner of this year's Australian Open, Azarenka feel behind early and was unable to recover, losing her cool so badly at one point during that match that she issued a warning for racket abuse.

2009 French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova also fell on Sunday, losing to Italy's Sara Errani, 6-0, 7-5. With the victory the No. 21-seeded Errani will advance to her second straight Grand Slam quarterfinal.
