Samsonova beat Katie Boulter
6-3, 6-2 on Tuesday at the US Open to advance to Round 2.
Samsonova actually committed six double faults during the match but made up for it with 27 winners. Next up for the 22-year-old is a very winnable match against Greet Minnen
, who is just 2-7 across her career in the main draws of grand slam events.
