American Jessica Pegula, the No 3 seed, became the first player to reach the second round of the Australian Open by beating Romanian Jaqueline Cristian 6-0, 6-1 at Melbourne Park on Monday.

Pegula, ranked No 3, needed only 59 minutes for the win and improved to 5-1 for the year, having won four of her five matches at the United Cup earlier this month.

The American, who reached the quarter-finals of the Australian Open the last two years in a row, will face the winner of the match between Czech qualifier Brenda Fruhvirtova and Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich next.
