Marina Erakovic safely made it through to the third round of the Citi Open in Washington with a comfortable victory over Shelby Rogers.

The New Zealander needed just over an hour to register a 6-2 6-2 win against the American qualifier.

A brilliant comeback from world No 40 Kurumi Nara helped her book a place in the next round.

Nara had lost the opening set to Zarina Diyas but she regrouped and was closing in on victory when her opponent from Kazakhstan was forced to retire injured with the score 3-6 6-2 4-0.

Kristina Mladenovic recorded a 6-3 6-4 victory to see off American qualifier Taylor Townsend in an hour and half to progress, while Bojana Jovanovski ousted eighth seed Sorana Cirstea 4-6 7-5 6-3.
