New Delhi: Sania Mirza beat her unseeded Fench opponent Pauline Parmentier 6-3, 6-1 on Wednesday to cruise into the second round of the Tashkent Open in Uzbekistan. The third seed took just 48 minutes to defeat the Frenchwoman, who is ranked 206. The Hyderabadi teenager has had a fairly ordinary second year on the circuit but her exploits in Korea Open last week where she beat Martina Hingis has catapulted her rankings to 55. This tier IV event is Sania's penultimate outing of the year. She plays her next round match in Tashkent against Hana Sromova of the Czech Republic.
