Glittering Rezai blasts into French Open second round

Paris: France`s Aravane Rezai followed up her Madrid title with a crushing 6-1, 6-1 demolition of Canadian qualifier Heidi El Tabakh in the first round of the French Open on Sunday.

Wearing an eye-catching black and gold space-age dress on centre court, the 15th-seeded Rezai cracked winner after winner to blast past her helpless opponent in just 48 minutes.

Rezai, who beat Justine Henin, Jelena Jankovic and Venus Williams en route to winning the Madrid Open last weekend, wrapped up a straightforward victory with an ace.

She will next face either Russian Anna Chakvetadze or Angelique Kerber of Germany.
