Sania advances in Los Angeles

August 07, 2007 12:43 IST

Sania Mirza eased past Canadian Alesandra Wozniak to advance into the second round of the USD 600,000 East West Bank Classic WTA tournament in Los Angeles on Monday.

The 30th-ranked Sania tamed qualifier Wozniak 6-3, 6-2 at the Tier II hard court event.

However, an uphill task lies ahead of the Hyderabadi who will meet seventh seed Martina Hingis of Switzerland in the next round. The Swiss got a bye in the first round.

In the doubles, Sania and her new partner Bethanie Mattek of the USA will take on Janette Husarova of Slovakia and Michaella Krajicek of the Netherlands in the first round.
