Australian Samantha Stosur couldn’t ask for a better start to her grass court season with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Sabine Lisicki in the first round of the AEGON International.

A week prior to Wimbledon, World No.18 Stosur carried her form over from Paris when she took a meagre 50 minutes to dispatch her German opponent.

Stosur will now face the winner between World No.9 Caroline Wozniacki or No.26-ranked Russian Alisa Kleybanova.

Meanwhile, Australia’s Slovakian import, Jarmila Groth, secured her place in the main draw after a convincing 6-4, 6-3 win over Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez in qualifying.

Groth will now face Russian Ekaterina Makarova on Tuesday.
