Muguruza, the tournament’s fifth seed, won seven straight games against Peer to clinch the first set and lead 5-0 in the second.

She’s enjoying a breakthrough season, as she clinched her first WTA title in January at the Hobart International and finished runner-up at the Brazil Cup in March.

Peer made five double faults and was able to hold serve only once.

Muguruza will next face fellow Spaniard Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor, who edged out Polona Hercog of Slovenia 7-6 (3), 7-6 (5).
