Sixth seed Li Na of China also cruised into the second round, beating Michaella Krajicek of the Netherlands 6-1, 6-1.

In the men’s singles, Japan’s Kei Nishikori cruised into the second round as the 12th seed crushed Australian wild-card Matthew Ebden 6-2, 6-4, 6-3.

Nishikori last year became the first Japanese man to reach the third round since 1995 and he has set his sights even higher this time.

The Florida-based star needed only 1 hour, 41 minutes on Court 14 and he next faces Argentine world No. 84 Leonardo Mayer, who defeated Aljaz Bedene 6-2, 6-3, 6-4.
