The Swiss world number three needed just 50 minutes to down Lee (WTA 108) in straight sets (6-1, 6-0).

Hingis, who received a bye into the second round, is now due to face Tatiana Poutchek of Belarus, who defeated French seed Nathalie Dechy 6-3, 0-6, 6-0.

The $6.3 million Florida event is regarded as the most important tournament on the professional tennis circuit after the four Grand Slam competitions.
