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.
