INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) Agnieszka Radwanska opened the second round of women's singles with a routine victory Friday and Swiss stars Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka filled their time off as the opening round of men's singles concluded by winning their doubles match.

Radwanska, the Polish player seeded No. 2 in the $10.5 million event at Indian Wells Tennis Garden, began the day on stadium court by beating qualifier Heather Watson of Britain 6-4, 6-3.

The only seeded player to lose early on was No. 29 Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia. The two-time tournament champion bowed to American Varvara Lepchenko, 6-3, 6-2.

Federer and Wawrinka, the 2008 Olympic gold medalists, played in the new 8,000-seat Stadium 2, and emerged with a 6-2, 6-7 (4), (10-6) victory over Rohan Bopanna of India and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan.
