Julia Glushko advanced to the second round of the Australian Open qualifiers on Thursday, but Shahar Pe’er and Amir Weintraub both saw their hopes of reaching the main draw of the year’s first Grand Slam event dashed in Melbourne.

Glushko, ranked No. 128 in the world, made easy work of Eri Hozumi (190) of Japan, claiming a 6-3, 6-1 victory. The Israeli No. 1, who is aiming to return to the main draw of a Grand Slam for the first time since the 2014 US Open, will face Amandine Hesse (165) of France in the second round on Friday.
