WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Top-seeded Dinara Safina has moved into the second round at Wimbledon with a straight-set victory over Lourdes Dominguez Lino.
Still seeking her first Grand Slam title, Safina won 7-5, 6-3 on Tuesday.
It was the Russian's first match at a major tournament since losing the French Open final this month. Safina is 0-3 in Grand Slam finals.
The younger sister of two-time major champion Marat Safin has never been past the third round at the All England Club.
The 72nd-ranked Dominguez Lino dropped to 0-3 at Wimbledon for her career.
