Fifth seed Simona Halep brushed aside opponent Kiki Bertens on Centre Court, as the Romanian progressed to the second round of Wimbledon in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3.
The world number five defeated Bertens of the Netherlands, in just over an hour in to book her place in Round Four.
Halep, who reached the semi-finals at SW19 in 2014, will now look to replicate her performance this year, with her particular part of the women's draw opening up.
Halep power too much for Bertens
On paper, Halep was the heavy favourite for the contest with Bertens having reached the round of 32 at Wimbledon for the first time in her career.
On grass however, Halep's power game was likely to be the dominant force and so it proved. After the opening five games were shared, Halep struck to take first blood and a 4-2 lead. To Bertens' credit, she broke straight back but again lost her serve for the decisive time, with Halep taking the opening set 6-4.
Romanian cruises home
The world number 28 had been the story of Roland Garros just a few weeks ago and if a fightback was to take place, similar heart would need to be on show.
Halep however, was not playing ball. After opening up a 3-1 lead in the second, the Romanian was asserting her full authority over her opponent.
As The Romanian crept toward the line, the same uncertainties that have plagued Halep's game re-emerged but Halep powered through from break point to hold serve to topple the 26th seed, taking the second set 6-3 for a place in Monday's Fourth Round.
Halep will now play either ninth seed Madison Keys of the USA, or world number 48 Elize Cornet of France.
