The 23-year-old easily beat Vondrousova and won the game 6-1, 6-3.

Ash Barty returned to competition after her French Open win.

Kvitova, the victor for the past two years, withdrew this week as she continues to recover from an arm injury, but Edgbaston hosts one of the strongest fields in its history, with the world's top three of Naomi Osaka, Barty and Karolina Pliskova all in action.

Tiriac went on to call Romanian star Simona Halep, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Martina Navratilova as "celebrities who are outstanding", but he refused to place Barty in the same category.

His rant went on to take a swipe at the Australian public and claimed Barty's only advantage was that she comes from a country that has a history of players who can master the technicalities of the sport.

Barty, who became Australia's first grand slam victor since 2011 at Roland Garros earlier this month, partnered Germany's Julia Gorges in a routine 6-3 6-4 victory over Dalila Jakupovic and Kaitlyn Christian. "It's awesome", the Queenslander said after her win. "This is the time of the year I love playing tennis".

"Now Barty has great belief in her game".

Ash Barty defeated Julia Goerges of Germany in two sets.

Kyrgios says he is not surprised by the sudden rise of a player he has known since they travelled the world together as juniors.

"We've worked so hard to try to put ourselves into these positions and now that it's here it's just about enjoying it, it really is". I'm not going to play my best tennis every day, but I can guarantee we'll be doing all the right things to give myself the best chance. I did it!This wasn't the moment she heard Tiriac's comments, but we imagine her reaction may have been similar. I jumped back on the court yesterday and got back into training. I always knew that she was going to be a champion at some stage, just how bad she wanted it. "I actually think she's probably one of the favourites for Wimbledon, for sure".
