INDIAN WELLS, Calif., March 11 (UPI) -- Justine Henin led the way on the opening day of the BNP Paribas Open Wednesday by rolling to a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Magdalena Rybarikova.

Henin is mounting a comeback after having retired as the No. 1 player in the world almost two years ago. She is unseeded for this prestigious event, at which she is a former champion.

The seeded players received a bye past the opening round.

Henin was joined in the second round Wednesday by Patty Schnyder, a 6-1, 6-2 winner over Tathiana Garbin, and Jill Craybas, who ousted Eleni Daniilidou 6-0, 7-5.
