Black and Rodionova, the No.9 seeds, took just 56 minutes to ease past Alla Kudryavtseva and Darya Kustova in their second round, 64 61. Kudryavtseva and Kustova broke Black's serve in the seventh game for a 4-3 advantage, but Black and Rodionova won eight games in a row and eventually closed it out.
"We played a really great match,," Black said. "It was really windy so the conditions were tricky. It was blowing all over the place. But the hot weather has been great - we love playing in it and we're pretty used to it, I think."
The third round began too. No.2 seeds Liezel Huber and Nadia Petrova, Raymond and Stubbs, No.6 seeds Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova and No.14 seeds Elena Vesnina and Vera Zvonareva all making the quarters.
