(February 14, 2013) All of the top seeds advanced easily at the Qatar Open on Thursday. No. 1 Victoria Azarenka demolished American Christina McHale 6-0, 6-0. “I felt like I came out very focused, with a good mindset and a good game plan,” Azarenka  told the WTA website. “There were a few close games, but I felt like I was really taking advantage of every opportunity I had and not letting her play her game,” said the Belarusian. Serena Williams, No. 2 defeated Urszula Radwanska 6-0, 6-3 in less than an hour. Williams is close regaining the No. 1 ranking.  Should she move into the semifinals she’ll be the oldest woman to obtain the top spot at 31 years old.   QATAR TOTAL OPEN Doha, Qatar February 11-17, 2013 $2,369,000/Premier Hard/Outdoors Results - Thursday, February 14, 2013 Singles – Third Round (1) Victoria Azarenka (BLR) d.
