World number one Iga Swiatek eased into the second round of the Poland Open on Wednesday with a straight-sets thrashing of fellow home player Magdalena Frech.
The French Open champion romped to a 6-1, 6-2 victory at the Warsaw clay-court event in her first match since suffering a shock third-round defeat by Alize Cornet in the Wimbledon third round.

Swiatek had been on a remarkable 37-match winning streak before that loss, taking six successive titles along the way.
The 21-year-old was back to her dominant best against Frech, not facing a single break point as she wrapped up the win in 73 minutes.
She will next face Romanian lucky loser Gabriela Lee for a quarterfinal place.
