LONDON — Victoria Azarenka moved into the Wimbledon second round as the world number two played through the pain barrier to defeat Portugal’s Maria Joao Koehler 6-1, 6-2 on Monday.

Azarenka, the reigning Australian Open champion, recovered from a nasty fall in the second set that left her in tears to earn a meeting with Italy’s Flavia Pennetta in the next round.
