Scheepers won her first match since falling in the opening round at the US Open. Scheepers earned 10 out of 11 points in the first set and then continued her dominance in the second-set too to sail home in straight sets with a 6-0 6-3 scoreline.
"It's good to have the win," Scheepers said. "She started playing better in the second set and was really starting to hit her targets so it was good to get through. Every tournament is tough and there are a lot of good players here. It doesn't matter if they're Top 10 or lower down, everyone can play really good tennis so I'm just going to take it match by match this week."
