Maria Sharapova is hoping to prove her fitness ahead of the French Open in Paris starting on Sunday.

The Russian -- who has been out for 10 months with a long-term shoulder injury, which has meant her world ranking has plummeted to 126 -- cruised to a 6-2 6-0 victory in less than an hour.

Fifth seed Italian Sara Errani suffered worse fortunes, however, crashing out 6-4 6-3 to Alexandra Dulgheru, and third seed Jie Zheng was thrashed 6-0 6-4 by Klara Zakaopalova.

Briton Anne Koethavong battled to a 3-6 6-3 6-1 win over American Jill Craybas to set up a third-round clash with Ioana Raluca Olaru, who beat Julia Goerges 6-3 0-6 7-6.

Alona Bondarenko dispatched Marta Domachowska of Poland to meet Sharapova in the next round, but her sister Kateryna Bondarenko lost 6-4 7-6 to Galina Voskoboeva. Meanwhile, Daniela Hantuchova downed Urszula Radwanska 6-3 6-1.
