Johanna Konta crushed Margarita Gasparyan in under an hour to advance to the third round of the US Open on Thursday.

Konta, who got her US Open campaign up and running with a battling three-set win over Daria Kasatkina, continued her solid form against another Russian in Gasparyan, winning comfortably 6-1 6-0 in 54 minutes.

The match was rescheduled from Wednesday after rain prevented any play on the outside courts, and Konta revelled in sunny conditions to dispatch the world No 61 in emphatic fashion.

Konta, the British No 1, took immediate control by using her powerful groundstrokes to break three times in a quick-fire first set.
