No upsets as the top seeds progress into the third round.

Francesca Schiavone in action

Francesca Schiavone advanced into the third round of the women’s draw following a 7-5 6-3 victory over Barbora Zahlavova Strycova. The 2010 French Open champion hit 25 winners but will need to improve her unforced errors count of 19 when she plays Austria’s Tamira Paszek. Former world number one Ana Ivanovic also progressed after a 6-3 6-0 win over Greece’s Eleni Daniilidou.

But 14th seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova lost to fellow Russian Nadia Petrova. Former world number three Petrova registered a 6-3 6-3 victory on Court 17, taking advantage of Pavlyuchenkova’s 24 unforced errors.

Two-time Grand Slam winner Svetlana Kuznetsova, the 12th seed, demolished Romanian opponent Alexandra Dulgheru 6-0 6-2, while 16th seed Julia Goerges of Germany overcame a tight first-set tie-break to beat France’s Mathilde Johansson 7-6 (12-10) 6-2.

Belgium’s 19th seed Carolina Wickmayer needed three sets to defeat Georgia’s Anna Tatishvili 3-6 6-4 6-2 but Slovakia’s 24th seed Dominika Cibulkova enjoyed a no-nonsense victory with a 6-1 6-2 win over Slovenia’s Polona Hercog.
