Returning to action for the first time in two-and-a-half weeks, Swiatek dropped serve twice in the opening set of her first round match against Elena-Gabriela Ruse, but it didn’t matter much in the end.

“I’m pretty proud I could get into the rhythm today, just take some lessons during the match and improve my game, game by game,” Swiatek said in victory.

“That was pretty solid match for me … I think she’s playing really solid tennis. I could feel that today on my racquet, that she could really give back some strong hits.”

Breaking Ruse seven times in 12 opportunities, the top seed cruised to a 6-3, 6-0 win in just 68 minutes. She also hit 15 winners, five times the Romanian’s total.
