Agnieszka radwanska overcame the challenge of Belgian qualifier Elise Mertens in straight sets to make the third round of the dubai duty free tennis championship
"It's always challenging to play someone for the first time and I didn't know exactly what to expect," said the No.4 seed. "It was a slow start from my side but I'm just happy to win my first match here in two sets. The first match is always tough. These are tough conditions and a little windy so the ball is flying everywhere but hopefully, match by match, it will be better."
