Meusburger marches on

Yvonne Meusburger eased through to the second round of the Marrakech Grand Prix on Monday with a straight-sets win over Petra Cetkovska.

Third seed Meusburger won 6-3 6-3 on the Red Clay at Royal Tennis Club and will now face either Chanelle Scheppers or Estrella Cabeza Candela.

Last year's runner-up Lourdes Dominguez Lino could face top seed Daniela Hantuchova in the second round after she beat Alla Kudryavtseva 6-2 7-5.

Hantuchova must first overcome Renata Voracova.

Israeli veteran Shahar Peer cruised past Petra Martic 6-2 6-3 and will now play the winner of Patricia Mayr-Achleitner and second seed Elina Svitolina.
