NEW YORK (Reuters) - Italy's Sara Errani doled out a rare double-bagel win at the U.S. Open on Tuesday, thrashing Australia's Olivia Rogowska 6-0 6-0 in under an hour.

Errani, the women's fourth seed for the year's final grand slam, showed no mercy against her 151st-ranked opponent, who only got into the draw as a lucky loser replacement following the withdrawal of Japan's Ayumi Morita.

Rogowska won just 23 points in the entire match and made a whopping 38 unforced errors before Errani finished her off in just 51 minutes.

Errani, who made the semi-finals at last year's U.S. Open and the French Open final the same season, will play her countrywoman Flavia Pennetta in the second round.
