The route to round two was not a straightforward one for fourth seed Roberta Vinci, who found herself a set down in her first round clash against Mathilde Johansson at the Barcelona Ladies Open. The fourth seed, who enjoyed a superb 2011 season, finally found her feet in the second set, and eventually managed to confidently make it through to the last sixteen with a 1-6, 6-1, 6-1 success.

“I was nervous in the match today,” explained the Italian after her seesaw battle. “It was my first match back on clay so I had to adjust, but then the second set was much better for me. I started being more aggressive and played with much more confidence.”

Vinci, the defending champion here, will be up against Simona Halep in round two. Halep should be in good spirits following her 6-4, 6-4 dismissal of Sloane Stephens. That said, she’s going to be up against it on Wednesday.

Firstly, this is an event in which Vinci thrives. Her first round win brought her overall Barcelona match record to 15-1. Secondly, Vinci should have the psychological edge after defeating the Romanian 6-4, 6-4 earlier in the year in Paris.
