Tennis - 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is through to the third round of the US Open and will take on 23 year old American Alison Riske next.

The big-hitting Czech woman easily dispatched Serbian Bojana Jovanovski 6-2, 6-4 win on Court 4 on Thursday in under an hour. Kvitova is seeded no. 7 this week in New York but has never been past the fourth round here.

Meanwhile, Riske upset 28th seeded German Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-2 to reach the last 32. Riske had never won a main draw hardcourt match in her career until last month though she has done exceptionally well during the grass court season in previous years.

Both players had 18 winners each – but Barthel committed 21 unforced errors to Riske’s 12.

Meanwhile, at least one Italian is assured of a place in the last 16 as Roberta Vinci, seeded no.10, will take on compatriot Karin Knapp.

Vinci needed three sets to beat Czech Lucie Safarova 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 while Knapp upset 22nd seeded Elena Vesnina 6-1, 6-4. The winner of that match could get Italian Flavia Pennetta in the fourth round if Pennetta beats Kuznetsova.

However, in modern tennis it is not enough to simply slice the ball back into play on every shot. You need a topspin backhand with which to put pressure on your opponent and win points quickly.
