Canada's Vasek Pospisil saw off the challenge of Juan Martin Del Potro to book his place in the second round of the Miami Open.

Pospisil claimed a 6-4 7-6 (9/7) win over the Argentinian, who was making his return after suffering a wrist injury that had seen him ruled out since January.

In the women's event, seventh seed Agnieszka Radwanska beat Anna Schmiedlova 6-4 7-5 in the second round while France's Alize Cornet defeated Elena Vesnina 6-4 6-1.

Ninth seed Andrea Petkovic eased into the third round thanks to a 6-2 6-2 victory against Christina McHale.
