Kvitova serves up double bagel for Chirico

In her first match since announcing the hiring of Cermak last week, fifth seed Kvitova produced a polished display to exorcise memories of early exits on her last two visits to Stuttgart.

Petra Kvitova enjoyed the perfect start to life under new coach Frantisek Cermak, coasting into round two of the Stuttgart Open with a 6-0,6-0 thrashing of American teenager Louisa Chirico.

In her first match since announcing the hiring of Cermak last week, fifth seed Kvitova produced a polished display to exorcise memories of early exits on her last two visits to Stuttgart.

Twenty-nine winners helped the powerful Czech demolish her opponent in 55 minutes and set up a meeting with Monica Niculescu or Caroline Garcia.

There was a similarly routine win for Carla Suarez Navarro, the seventh seed reeling off 11 games in succession to beat Oceane Dodin 6-3 6-0 in Tuesday's final contest.

Ana Ivanovic also won the second set of her match against Carina Witthoeft without losing a game, although the young German had proven much more competitive in the opener, which she led 5-3 before losing a tie-break.

Two of Witthoeft's compatriots were able to reach the second round. Yet another one-sided set went the way of Laura Siegemund as she beat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-0, 7-5, while Annika Beck beat Camila Giorgi 6-4, 6-2.

Siegemund will go on to face Simona Halep, while a meeting with second seed Angelique Kerber awaits Beck on Wednesday.
