No 16 seed Jelena Ostapenko beat Beatriz Haddad Maia 6-4, 6-4 in round one of the Western & Southern Open on Tuesday night.

Haddad Maia has been one of the WTA’s breakout stars this summer, with an awesome run on grass followed by a runner-up performance last week in Toronto. However, the Brazilian was no match for Ostapenko in Cincinnati. The Latvian broke her opponent four times while winning 15 of 20 second-serve points.

Ostapenko awaits the winner of a match between American Madison Keys and Kazakh Yulia Putintseva.
