Home favourite Ag­nieszka Rad­wan­ska sailed into the sec­ond round of the Ka­tow­ice Open with a 6-3 6-2 win over Czech wild­card Kristyna Pliskova.

The top seed was rarely trou­bled - fend­ing off the two break points Pliskova mus­tered - as she tri­umphed in 69 min­utes.

“It’s al­ways hard to play against a lefty big-server like Kristyna, who is very tal­ented and never gives you too much rhythm,” Rad­wan­ska said. “I had to play very well to­day to win this match.
