Seoul, Korea (Sports Network) - Top seed and world No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska was an easy second-round winner, while second-seeded Maria Kirilenko failed to reach the quarterfinals at the Korea Open.

The Polish Radwanska rolled to a straight-set victory over Estrella Cabeza Candela, as she needed just over an hour to dispose of her Spanish counterpart, 6-2, 6-1.

Radwanska's quarterfinal opponent on Friday will be Russian Vera Dushevina.

Meanwhile, 42-year-old Japanese Kimiko Date-Krumm upended the 2008 Seoul titlist and 2007 runner-up Kirilenko in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1. Date-Krumm, who captured this event in 2009, will face former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone in the round of eight.

Also on Thursday, Korean wild card Su Jeong Jang bounced back to down Tunisian qualifier Ons Jabeur by a 1-6, 6-4, 6-1 margin.

The other quarterfinals will pit third-seeded Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova against Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu and Su versus Spaniard Lara Arruabarrena.
