At the end of first round play, seven of the top 8 seeds have advanced to the second round of the National Bank Cup presented by IGA.

Playing her first match in Quebec City since she won the title in 2013, top-seeded Czech Lucie Safarova was in champion’s form on Tuesday night racing through her opening round match 6-0, 6-1 in just 46 minutes over American Anna Tatishvili, losing just three points on serve in the match.

“Of course being the No. 1 player there is more pressure, but first rounds can go either way, sometimes you feel great and you’re playing well and sometimes you need a couple matches to get the feel and the right timing. For me, I felt really good on the court today, I hope that continues for my future matches.”

Françoise Abanda made it two Canadians in the second round thanks to an impressive 6-4, 7-5 victory over American Asia Muhammad. The 20-year-old broke her opponent’s serve four times and never trailed in the match. She’ll face fifth seeded American Varvara Lepchenko, who defeated Aleksandra Wozniak, on Wednesday night at 7:15 p.m. at PEPS.

“It’s a tournoi at home, so I definitely want to do well, I hope to go far. It’s a tournament with a lot of points available so it can help me a lot,” Abanda said after the match.
