May 13 2014 ITS Staff Rome, Italy -  World No.2 Novak Djokovic, reigning Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka, and World No.5 David Ferrer advanced to the second round with straight-set victories on Tuesday at the $4 million Internazionali BNL d'Italia Masters at the Foro Italico.

 

Djokovic defeated Radek Stepanek 6-3, 7-5 in one hour 37 minutes. The two-time champion is playing in his first tournament since he was forced to rest his injured wrist sustained in Monte Carlo three weeks ago. Recent Monte Carlo winner Wawrinka, who was finalist here in 2008, cruised past Spaniard Pere Riba 6-0, 6-3. Spanish star Ferrer also advanced with a crushing victory over talented Kazakh  Mikhail Kukushkin 6-1 6-2 in under an hour.

In the women’s side, Australian Open champion Li Na posted her No.500th professional career victory after eliminating Australia’s Casey Dellacqua in straight sets 6-1 6-4. The No.1 seed Chinese star took one hour and 18 minutes to defeat Dellacqua despite wet and windy conditions played at the center court late Tuesday evening.

 

Fifth-seed Czech Petra Kvitova and No.7 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany were both upset earlier in the day with Kvitova falling to China’s Zhang Shuai 7-6(6), 5-7, 6-3, while Kerber was ousted by Czech qualifier Petra Cetkovska
