Tennis-Mauresmo eases into third round of German Open

Written by: Staff

BERLIN, May 10 (Reuters) World number one Amelie Mauresmo swept aside Vera Dushevina 6-1 6-2 in her opening match at the German Open today to reach the third round.

As one of the seeded players Mauresmo had gone straight into the tournament's second round.

Mauresmo, who won on the clay here in 2001 and 2004, overpowered the 19-year-old and next faces Anna Chakvetadze, another Russian.

The Frenchwoman is on course to play a resurgent Martina Hingis in the quarter-finals. The Swiss former world number one came through earlier 6-4 6-3 against Germany's Julia Schruff.

Hingis, the 1999 winner, was forced out of the game in 2002 due to foot injuries and burnout. She launched her comeback in January and since risen to number 23 in the world.
