Radwanska defeats Wickmayer in 1st round of Katowice Open

KATOWICE, Poland (AP) Top-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska eased into the second round of the Katowice Open on Tuesday with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium.

The ninth-ranked Radwanska now faces another Belgian, An-Sophie Mestach, who defeated Polish wild card entrant Magdalena Frech 6-2, 6-1.

The home-court advantage didn't help Radwanska's younger sister, Urzula, who was beaten 6-0, 6-1 by Russia's Elizaveta Kulichkova.
