Indian Wells:

Second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska reached the third round of the WTA and ATP Masters hard court tournament at Indian Wells on Friday with a straight-sets win over British qualifier Heather Watson.

Poland's Radwanska, ranked number three in the world, needed one hour and 24 minutes to get past the 134th-ranked Watson 6-4, 6-3. She next faces either Russian Elena Vesnina or Germany's Annika Beck.

"The first match is always challenging," said Radwanska, who like all 32 men's and women's seeds enjoyed a first-round bye.

In a match littered with service breaks, she held serve to finish out the match, giving herself another reason to celebrate a day after her 25th birthday.
