Li Na and Agnieszka Radwanska were among the big name winners at the Madrid Open Monday as the tennis world paid their respects to the shocking death of Elena Baltacha.The world No. 2 raced through the opening set, but was forced to save two set points in the second before closing out the match in a tie-break.No. 3 seed Radwanska also sealed her place in the last 32 with a 7-6 (7/3), 6-2 win over Australian Open semifinalist Eugenie Bouchard.Australian Open finalist Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia became the only top 10 seed to fall Monday, though, as she was comprehensively beaten 6-4, 6-0 by 2011 U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur of Australia.It was smooth sailing for the seeds on the men's side as Kei Nishikori, John Isner and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga all secured their passage into round two.
