Robson was at her very best as she won 6-3 6-4 against the Russian, prompting many to express the feeling that she could better her run to the fourth round of the US Open last year.
She will face Colombian qualifier Mariana Duque-Marino on Thursday, but refused to get carried away with the victory.
"I thought I could win today but I didn't expect to win," Robson added. "I'd love to win a couple more matches, but I don't want to get ahead of myself.
"I think the next one is going to be really tough, so I'm just focusing on that. "I'll be taking it match by match, as I said before the tournament."
Robson admitted her nerves became fraught as she closed in on victory in the second set, particularly when the tense bumper crowd on Court One witnessed her double fault when she was 5-3 up in the second.
She added: "The general disappointment when you hit a double fault can get to you sometimes so you don't really need 9,000 people telling you, but I thought the crowd were good today."
