Paris: Double Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka reached the French Open second round Wednesday but Agnieszka Radwanska's hopes of playing little sister Urszula for a place in the last 16 were dashed.

Azarenka clinched a 6-1, 6-4 win over Elena Vesnina -- her fifth win in five matches against the experienced Russian -- and will next face German 19-year-old Annika Beck, the 2012 junior champion, for a place in the third round.

Roland Garros has been Azarenka's least successful Grand Slam.
