Yaroslava Shvedova beats Tamarine Tanasugarn in Seoul
Yaroslava Shvedova seems to be fit and in top form as she eliminated experienced Thai, Tamarine Tanasugarn in straight sets. She will face fourth seeded Dominika Cibulkova in the next round of the 2011 Hansol Korea Open.

Talented and determined Yaroslava Shvedova eased past Tamarine Tanasugarn and into the second round of the Hansol Korea Open on Tuesday afternoon.

Shvedova ended 2010 at the 39th spot but skip the tournaments during early 2011 with a knee injury and got pushed back to 220 in the process. She pulled back the momentum in her way this week, progressing through three rounds of qualifying and winning two with double bagels, the first two double bagels of her career before beating Tanasugarn in the first round, 6-2, 6-0.

Shvedova said, "It has already been some time since I last played singles. I just got a new coach and he has been giving me a lot of good advice. He has really helped a lot and I feel I've been playing better and better since coming here."

Shvedova, who won her first WTA doubles title with Tanasugarn raced away with nine games in a row from 3-2 in the first set to snatch the win in just under an hour. There was a drastic change in the result compared to their last meeting in the first round of Wimbledon, where the Thai won, 6-2, 6-3.

Shvedova will now be locking heads with fourth seeded Dominika Cibulkova, who won her first round match on Monday. Cibulkova leads the head-to-head, 2-1.

A surprised Shedova added, "Oh, I didn't know I was going to play against her! I didn't look at the draw. No matter who is on the other side of the net, I always hope to play my best tennis."

Other winners of the day were Iveta Benesova, Carla Suárez Navarro and Vania King. King defeated the tournament's 2009 champion and experienced Japanese Kimiko Date-Krumm, 6-2 6-2.
