(AP) Ana Ivanovic and Simona Halep cruised to straight-set victories on Tuesday in their opening round-robin matches at the season-ending Tournament of Champions.


Top-seeded Halep of Romania defeated Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-3, 6-3 in the Serdika group, while Ivanovic beat Bulgaria's Tsvetana Pironkova 6-0, 6-2 in the Sredets group.


In Tuesday's third match, third-seeded Maria Kirilenko retired due to injury against France's Alize Cornet, and had to quit the tournament for a second consecutive year.


Cornet was leading 5-0 in the first when Kirilenko called for a medical time out, before later abandoning the competition.


Ukraine's Elina Svitolina will replace Kirilenko.
