Playing in her first event since ending her partnership with celebrity coach Martina Navratilova, Agnieszka Radwanska moved easily into the round of 16 at the Mutua Madrid Open with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Casey Dellacqua.

Radwanska, a semifinalist in Madrid last year, will need to at least match that result to remain in the WTA’s Top 10. Poland’s No. 1 has been a card-carrying member of the Top 10 since October of 2011.


Radwanska’s next opponent will be Caroline Wozniacki. The Dane moved past American Christina McHale, 7-5, 6-0. Wozniacki, true to form, wore down the American after battling back from 2-0 and 4-2 down in the opener and never looked back in the second set.

Elsewhere in 2nd round action in Madrid, Svetlana Kuznetsova edged past Garbine Muguruza, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, to set up a throwback encounter with Sam Stosur, who took down Kaia Kanepi, 6-3, 6-2.

Other winners on Monday were Roberta Vinci, who knocked off Alize Cornet a day after the Frenchwoman shocked the draw by defeating Simona Halep, and Lucie Safarova, who ripped past Bulgaria’s Tsvetana Pironkova, 6-3, 6-1.

Tonight’s night session will feature a highly anticipated clash between Americans Serena Williams and Sloane Stephens. Williams has won 21 straight matches this season, which included a three-set decision over Stephens at Indian Wells.
