Former top-ranked players Caroline Wozniacki and Ana Ivanovic eased into the second round of the Qatar Open with straight-set victories Monday.

The 10th-ranked Wozniacki beat qualifier Mervana Jugic-Salkic 6-1, 6-2. The Dane had a poor start, losing her serve in the first game. But she broke right back and cruised from there, wrapping up the win in just over an hour.

The 13th-ranked Ivanovic beat Tamira Paszek 6-1, 6-2. Ivanovic broke the 26th-ranked Austrian twice in the first set, then saved three break points to go up 4-2 in the second. She broke Paszek again to make it 5-2 and sealed the victory when the Austrian hit a return long.
