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.

Serbia's Bojana Jovanovski also advanced after defeating Monica Niculescu of Romania 6-7 (6/8), 6-4, 6-1.
