British No 1 Kyle Edmund demolished Nicolas Jarry in 52 minutes to reach the third round in Indian Wells on Sunday.
Edmund, who warmed up for the tournament with victory at the Indian Wells Challenger as he completed a successful comeback from a knee injury, bullied Jarry of Chile to win 6-2 6-0.
But Johanna Konta was eliminated by by Kiki Bertens, losing 6-7 4-6.
Edmund, though, secured his first win on the ATP Tour since beating Diego Schwartzman in Vienna back in October with an overwhelming performance against Jarry, who is ranked 63 places below him at 86 in the world, registering six aces and winning 80 per cent of his first serve points.
He will play the winner of the match between Italy's Fabio Fognini or Moldovan Radu Albot in round three on Tuesday.
