American Sloane Stephens broke Laura Robson's service in the opening game and went on to beat the British player 6-4, 7-6 (4), in a first-round match at the Hobart International on Sunday.

Stephens, the eighth-seeded player in Hobart, lost in the quarterfinals to eventual champion Serena Williams at the Brisbane International last week.
