Muguruza’s comfortable passage through to the next round was mirrored by sixth-seed Qiang Wang of China, who outclassed home wildcard Zhang Ling 6-0, 6-2 to set up a meeting with Christina McHale.

Australian seventh-seed Daria Gavrilova beat Zarina Diyas 3-6 7-5 6-1 while Nao Hibino progressed past Samantha Stosur 6-3, 6-3.

Top seed, Elina Svitolina, continued her campaign with a straightforward 6-2, 6-3 victory over Priscilla Hon.
