British number one Johanna Konta has beaten Lesia Tsurenko to set up a last-16 meeting with two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova at Eastbourne.

Konta, who will be seeded for the first time at Wimbledon this year, overcame her Ukrainian opponent 7-6 (7-4) 6-1.

Kvitova won her only previous meeting with Konta, coming through 7-5 6-3 in the US Open last 16 in September.

Top seed Agnieszka Radwanska and former world number one Caroline Wozniacki also advanced to the third round.

Mirjana Lucic-Baroni of Croatia was forced to retire from her match against Poland's Radwanska because of illness while trailing 6-4 2-1. Dane Wozniacki - now ranked 37th in the world - produced a superb performance to beat Australian Sam Stosur 6-2 6-1.

Radwanska will play 2014 Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard next after the Canadian - who has fallen to 48th in the world from a high of fifth in October 2014 - beat Romanian 15th seed Irina-Camelia Begu 6-3 6-1.

Earlier in the day Czech fifth seed Kvitova saw off Hungary's Timea Babos 6-4 7-6 (7-5), but Italian second seed Roberta Vinci and Swiss fourth seed Timea Bacsinszky were upset by Russia's Ekaterina Makarova and France's Kristina Mladenovic respectively.
