Zvonareva charges into second round

8:45 am on 19 January 2011

The Russian second seed Vera Zvonareva has strolled into the second round of the Australian Tennis Open trouncing Austria's Sybille Bamme 6-2 6-1 in just under an hour.

The French and US Open finalist is coming off her best season but she's still regarded as almost a dark horse behind more fancied players Kim Clijsters and world number one Caroline Wozniacki.
