Henin-Hardenne breezes into second round

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Second seed Justine Henin-Hardenne
breezed through to the second round of the U.S. Open on Monday
with a 6-2 6-1 victory over Italian Maria Elena Camerin.

After a rain delay of more than 90 minutes, the Belgian,
who won the title in 2003, broke in the first game and was
never troubled.

World number 45 Camerin had treatment for a left thigh
injury after she was broken for 2-1 in the second set and
Henin-Hardenne cruised through the remaining four games.

French Open champion Henin-Hardenne will play either Vania
King of the U.S. or Australian Alicia Molik in the second
