Caroline Wozniacki eased into the third round of the French Open with a 6-1, 6-0 demolition of Georgina Garcia Perez on Wednesday.
The second seed needed just 51 minutes to see off qualifier Garcia Perez, who struggled to cope in her maiden appearance on Court Philippe Chatrier.
Wozniacki took control early on and did not relent as she put her 26-year-old opponent, who was spirited but well short of the world number two’s quality, to the sword.
The Dane raced into a 5-0 lead before Garcia Lopez spared herself the ignominy of a bagel by finally getting a game on the board.
She could not do the same in the second set, however, as Wozniacki - who made only eight unforced errors to Garcia Lopez’s 29 - wrapped up a comfortable victory in emphatic fashion.
The result sets up a third-round clash with Alize Cornet or Pauline Parmentier.
Sam Querrey out
The French Open is Sam Querrey’s least successful Grand Slam tournament and the American bowed out early again as this year’s No. 12 seed.
He was beaten 1-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4, 6-1 by Gilles Simon of France in the second round.
Querrey hadn’t even won a single match at Roland Garros since 2014 until beating Frances Tiafoe in the first round.
Querrey has been as far as the third round in Paris just once in 12 appearances.
