Miami: Third seed Simona Halep had to recover after losing the second set to earn a 6-4, 2-6, 6-1 win over Czech Nicole Vaidisova on Friday to reach the third round of the Miami Masters.

The Romanian, winner of last week`s Indian Wells title, was stunned in the second set by the 25-year-old Vaidisova, who retired in 2010 but is now making a return to the WTA.

Halep was broken while serving for a three-set win at 5-0, but broke back two games later to secure victory in 92 minutes with 17 winners and 27 unforced errors.
