Naomi Osaka's powerful serves set her up for many free points today
Halep is building towards the French Open in two weeks time where she hopes to claim a first Grand Slam after twice finishing runner-up in Roland Garros.
Today it was all about Halep, who saved all six break points she faced and took charge on the return as well, winning nearly 70% of the points in Osaka's games to notch six breaks from seven opportunities, dominating from start to finish and reaching the third round in style.
Garcia, the seventh seed, went through with a break in both sets in 1hr 30min and she will next play either American Sloane Stephens or Kaia Kanepi of Estonia.
