Kim Clijsters continues the defence of her Australian Open title with a 6-0 6-1 win over Stephanie Foretz Gacon

Defending champion Kim Clijsters stormed into the third round of the Australian Open after a comfortable win over Stephanie Foretz Gacon.

The French outsider was no match for Clijsters, as the Belgian recorded a 6-0 6-1 victory in under an hour.

Clijsters net play was the highlight of a dominant perfomance and Foretz Gacon looked shocked as she failed to record a game during the first set.

Despite only hitting two winners in the match, Foretz Gacon did manage to win a game in the second set.

Clijsters quickly wrapped up the second set and the four-time Grand Slam champion will face Daniela Hantuchova in round three.
