Safina, who made an early exit in the US Open by going out in the third round, defeated Italy’s Roberta Vinci 6-4 6-4.

Williams – aiming to overtake her Russian rival in the rankings – also won in straight sets, beating Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 7-5 6-4.

However number six seed Svetlana Kuznetsova found it hard going against Zheng Jie, eventually winning 7-6 (7-3) 7-5.

Kuznetsova found herself playing catch-up in both sets after being 3-0 down in the first and 4-0 down in the second.

Fellow Russian Vera Zvonareva, the seventh seed, recorded a 6-2 6-2 victory against Sorana Cirstea of Romania.
