Tennis-Open-Radwanska rolls into second round in Paris

1 Min Read

PARIS, May 25 (Reuters) - Polish third seed Agnieszka Radwanska capitalised on Chinese Zhang Shuai's meltdown and advanced into the second round of the French Open with a 6-3 6-0 win on Sunday.

As clouds rapidly gathered over Court Philippe Chatrier on a chilly morning, the first seven games went against serve before Radwanska bagged the remaining eight games.

She ended her hapless opponent's ordeal on the first match point with a fine volley to set up a meeting with Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic or French wildcard Mathilde Johansson.

"It's important that I settled in two sets and spent only one hour on court," Radwanska told a courtside interviewer. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Pritha Sarkar)
