Twenty-five year old Linette, seeded 74th, started the match strongly, but at 5:2 injured her foot, giving 20-year-old Kasatkina a chance to catch up.

With a bandaged foot, Linette took out the first set and dominated the second, winning 7:6 (7-4), 6:2 in an hour and 43 minutes.

She faces Czech player Denisa Allertová in round three. (vb)
