MARRAKECH, Morocco (AP) In her return from injury, Polona Hercog of Slovenia cruised past seventh-seeded Zhang Shuai of China 6-2, 6-2 to move into the second round of the Grand Prix SAR on Wednesday.

Hercog broke Zhang twice in the first set and three times in the second.

She had been sidelined by a right rib injury since the Australian Open, where she retired in the first round because of a right shoulder injury.

Hercog will next play Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium.
