Angelique Kerber survived a scare in her first match as world No. 1 before beating Kristina Mladenovic in three sets at the Wuhan Open Tuesday.The U.S. and Australian Open champion, who had a bye in the first round, made a convincing start before missing two set points and allowing Mladenovic to take the first set in a tiebreak.World No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska also romped into the third round, as last year's U.S. Open finalist Roberta Vinci became the tournament's first seeded casualty.Radwanska will next meet an in-form Caroline Wozniacki, who defeated qualifier Kateraina Siniakova 6-4, 6-4 Tuesday, in the third round of the $2.6 million hard-court event.
