US Open: Radwanska, Kerber, Venus ease into second roundNew York: Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska, sixth-seeded German Angelique Kerber and two-time champion Venus Williams all took easy victories to reach the second round of the US Open tennis tournament here.

Poland`s Radwanska thrashed Russian Nina Bratchikova 6-1, 6-1 in 54 minutes. The 23-year-old Polish converted on six-of-seven break-point chances against the US Open debutante Tuesday, reports Xinhua.

Radwanska will next meet Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro.

The left-handed Kerber routed Britain`s Anne Keothavong 6-2, 6-0. The in-form German will next face Venus, who beat fellow American Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-3, 6-1.

Venus captured back-to-back US Open titles in 2000 and 2001 and was the runner-up in 1997 and 2002.

Former World No.1 Ana Ivanovic also advanced with a 6-3, 6-2 thrashing of Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.

Italian Roberta Vinci swept past Radwanska`s younger sister Urszula 6-1, 6-1, while 30th-seeded Jelena Jankovic beat Ukrainian Kateryna Bondarenko 6-1, 6-2. Jankovic was the US Open runner-up in 2008.

Andrea Hlavackova knocked out 24th-seeded fellow Czech Klara Zakopalova 6-4, 6-4, while Japan`s Ayumi Morita dismissed 26th-seeded Romanian Monica Niculescu 6-3, 6-3, and Russian Elena Vesnina upset 32nd-seeded Chinese Peng Shuai 7-6 (5), 6-1.

Also advancing at the final major of the year were Suarez Navarro, Russians Vera Dushevina and Ekaterina Makarova, Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova, Aussie Johanna Konta, Kazakhstan`s Galina Voskoboeva and Yaroslava Shvedova, Swede Sofia Arvidsson, Spaniard Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino and Serb Bojana Jovanovski.
