New York: Polish tennis star Agnieszka Radwanska and Chinese ace Li Na have reached the third round in the US Open in the women`s category.

Radwanska, promoted to third seed after the injury-forced withdrawal of Russian ace Maria Sharapova, defeated Spanish player Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor 6-0, 7-5 to move into the third round.

Chinese fifth seed Li Na moved into the third round by beating 100th-ranked Swede Sofia Arvidsson 6-2, 6-2.

Radwanska, who has never got beyond the fourth round in the Flushing Meadows, would clash against Russia`s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the third round, while Li Na will next face Brit Laura Robson, who knocked her out of the tournament in 2012.
