Samantha Stosur has been knocked out by world No. 1 Serena Williams in straight sets at the Toronto Masters.

Three years after falling to Stosur during the US Open final, Williams exacted brutal revenge with a 6-0 6-2 second-round blow.

“She is a fascinating player,” Williams mentioned. “She’s extremely tough. We’ve had some tough matches. I do know we’ve gone to three sets on occasions. It’s undoubtedly a difficult match for me.”

Williams has won the Rogers Cup 3 times when it’s held on alternate years in Toronto, together with last year, however she has not participated in Montreal since she retired from the final with an injury in 2000.

“I’m actually happy to be part of the event this year. It’s just really cool,” she stated.

French Open champion Maria Sharapova rallied for a three-set victory over Garbine Muguruza.

The fourth-seeded former world No. 1 fought back to beat the gifted Spanish 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 to arrange a meeting with another Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro, a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 winner over Czech Karolina Pliskova in Montreal.

“I was rejoiced that I used to be capable of turning it round,” Sharapova mentioned. “I didn’t really feel good. I made plenty of errors during the first set.

“While you’re capable to finish stronger than your begin, that’s always optimistic since you give your self a chance to hold on to the event.”

The previous world No. 1 from Denmark will play American qualifier Shelby Rogers, who put a quick finish to Eugenie Bouchard’s homecoming event during the second round.

“It’s my favorite surface,” mentioned Wozniacki, who has lost only 5 games in two matches at the hard-court event. “I’ve been playing fairly well these days.

“Montreal at all times has been a very good place for me, winning right here a couple of years in the past (2010). I’m feeling good and hopefully I can keep going.”

Wozniacki is coming off her first win of the season at the Istanbul Cup, the place she dropped only two matches while beating Roberta Vinci during the final.
