NEW YORK (AP) Fourth-seeded Sara Errani posted a "double bagel" Tuesday, routing "lucky loser" Olivia Rogowska 6-0, 6-0 to advance to the second round of the U.S. Open.

Errani, the 2012 French Open runner-up and a semifinalist at Flushing Meadows last year, needed 51 minutes in Armstrong Stadium to dispatch her 151st-ranked opponent, who lost in qualifying but made it into the main draw when Ayumi Morita withdrew with an injury.

Errani won 54 points to 23 for Rogowska.
