The Canadian Bianca Andreescu had acceded to the second round of the classic ASB, the first tournament of the season at the circuit of the WTA tour.

Andreescu, aged 18 years, was defeated Hungarian Timea Babos 6-4, 7-6 (8) in the first round.

Ontario, which has passed through the qualifications, had reason to Babos at the end of a match of one hour and 46 minutes, totaling seven aces.

She will now face the winner of the match between the Danish Caroline Wozniacki, former no. 1 in the world, and the German Laura Siegemund.

Andreescu has joined Eugenie Bouchard in the second round of this tournament. Bouchard started her season with a convincing victory of 6-3 and 6-3 at the expense of the American Madison Brengle, on Monday.

She has an appointment with the qualified Bibiane Schoofs in the second round.
