Copenhagen - Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark easily reached the third round of the e-Boks Open on Thursday by cruising past Pauline Parmentier of France 6-2, 6-1.

The 21-year old two-time defending champion broke Parmentier twice in the first set and three times in the second to clinch the victory in 1 hour, 7 minutes. She will face France's Alize Cornet in the next round.

Earlier on Thursday, second-seeded Angelique Kerber overcame a sluggish start to beat Britain's Anne Keothavong 4-6, 6-3, 6-3.

The 24-year-old Kerber broke Keothavong four times in the second set and then earned the only break of the decider. She will face countrywoman Mona Barthel in the next round.
