Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova sees off Daniela Hantuchova in straight sets at the US Open to set up a second-round clash with either Kristina Mladenovic or Marina Erakovic.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has beaten Daniela Hantuchova in straight sets to progress to round two of the US Open.

The 21-year-old Russian, who was a quarter finalist at Flushing Meadows last year, claimed a topsy-turvy opening set 6-4.

Despite Hantuchova having served for the second set at 5-3, Pavlyuchenkova battled back to force a tie-break, which she emphatically won 7-1.

Pavlyuchenkova will now face either Kristina Mladenovic of France or New Zealand's Marina Erakovic in the next round.
