MOSCOW (AP) - Marion Bartoli of France kept her chances of qualifying for the WTA Championships alive on Thursday after she beat Ksenia Pervak of Russia 6-1, 6-1 in the second round of the Kremlin Cup.

The third-seeded Bartoli, fresh off her seventh career triumph at the Japan Open, needs to take the title in Moscow to secure the last spot for the season-ending event in Istanbul.

Agnieszka Radwanska, who leads Bartoli by 330 points, lost to Lucie Safarova on Wednesday.

Also, Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia beat Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic 7-6(5), 6-2 and Elena Vesnina beat fellow Russian player Ekaterina Ivanova 6-3, 6-4.
