US Open 2013: Agnieszka Radwanska progresses to third round; Sloane destroys Urszula

NEW YORK -- Third seed Agnieszka Radwanska advanced to the third-round of the U.S. Open 2013, after a 6-0, 7-5 win over Spain's Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor at the Flushing Meadows here. Agnieszka had no trouble in the first set, as she didn't plunge a game all the way through.

The Pole converted 3/5 break-points and won 89% of her first-serve points against a paltry 33% of her Spanish counterpart. It took just 21 minutes for Agnieszka to take the first set 6-0. The second set gave the notion of oscillation, as both the players started with a break over their counterparts serve.

This tradition was carried out till the end, as both broke each other thrice, as the match was tied at 5-5. However, Agnieszka Radwanska looked a more comprehensive player as she forced her rival to make errors, and ultimately went on to grab the second set 7-5, and secures her place into the third-round, in women’s singles category.

In other women's second round match-up, American Sloane Stephens proved too hot for Urszula Radwanska, as she needed just 58 minutes to dismantle Urzula Radwanska a 6-1, 6-1 win here, in the second round.
