EASTBOURNE, England -- Former champion Marion Bartoli eased into the second round of the grass-court Aegon International on Monday with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Italy's Flavia Pennetta.

Bartoli's win sets up a possible clash with second-seeded Li Na in the Wimbledon warm-up.

Pennetta claimed the first break of the match to lead 3-2, but her French opponent immediately responded by breaking Pennetta twice and serving out the set.

After an exchange of breaks to begin the second set, Bartoli swept five of the next six games.
