(Reuters) - Former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko overcame strong winds and a determined Mihaela Buzarnescu to advance to the second round of the Qatar Open with a 6-1 4-6 6-2 victory on Tuesday.

Both Ostapenko and Buzarnescu are aggressive players and finished with more unforced errors than winners, but the Latvian was more consistent on the day as she avenged a second-round loss to Buzarnescu in Doha 12 months ago.
