Canada's Bianca Andreescu cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 win over seventh seed Martina Trevisan in first-round action Tuesday at the Bad Homburg Open grass-court tennis tournament.

Andreescu broke her Italian opponent six times on nine chances in the match. The 22-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., only faced two break points, though she was unable to save either of them.

Trevisan, a semifinalist at the French Open earlier this month, struggled with her serve throughout the one-hour 15-minute match. She committed four double-faults and converted just 38.2 per cent of first serve points.
