Russia’s Zvonareva had few troubles getting past Frenchwoman Johansson, winning in one hour and 15 minutes.

Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, the eighth seed, had an even easier time of things on Court Two, claiming a 6-0 6-0 success over Romanian Ioana Raluca Olaru.

Tenth seed Nadia Petrova also progressed with a 6-3 6-2 triumph over Shahar Peer, but there was disappointment for 16th seed Zheng Jie, who was beaten 6-3 7-5 by former world number five Daniela Hantuchova.

There were also victories for seeds Dominika Cibulkova, Virginie Razzano and Sorana Cirstea, although Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova was another second-round casualty, the 31st seed losing out to Italy`s Roberta Vinci in straight sets.
