Daria needed a bit more than an hour to defeat Julia Goerges who came through the qualies (as well as Dasha herself) in her first round match at Chinese Premier 5.
Dasha was all over her opponent in the opening set having lost just one point on serve. Overall Goerges has taken seven points in the set.
After having two early breaks, Kasatkina took the lead 4-1 in the second. Even having given one of the breaks back to German, Dasha finished match-up in style - 6:0, 6:4.
In the next round Daria awaits for the #74 in the world - American Louise Chirico, who also has made a run through the qualifying stage. Kasatkina and Chirico met twice and both times Dasha won in straight sets.
