Easy progress for Ivanovic and Schiavonne.

A pair of former French Open champions moved into the third round of the U.S. Open on Thursday. Seventh-seeded Schiavone, the 2010 French Open champ, defeated Mirjana Lucic 6-1, 6-1. And 16th-seeded Ivanovic, the 2008 titlist at Roland Garros, won when Petra Cetkovska withdrew with a quadriceps injury.

“It’s never nice to win this way,” said Ivanovic, a former No. 1 moving her way back up the rankings after a drop into the 60s last year. “But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happy to be through to the next round.” Schiavone’s win took all of 53 minutes in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Lucic committed 32 unforced errors to only seven for Schiavone.

No. 11 Jelena Jankovic and No. 18 Roberta Vinci also advanced in straight sets.
