The match started badly for Cirstea as she dropped serve in the opening game but almost broke straight back as Radwanska saved five break points to lead 2-0. Two more service breaks in the third and fifth games handed Radwanska the set 6-0.
Cirstea started off the second set by holding her serve for the first time and then immediately broke her opponent's serve to lead 2-0 but Radwanska came storming back claiming the Romanian's serve three times to win the set and match 6-3.
In other second round matches, Riske thumped Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria 6-1, 6-1 while in an upset, the unseeded Wang Qiang of China beat Romanian seventh seed Monica Niculescu 7-6(1), 6-4.
British third seed Johanna Konta spent one hour and 37 minutes on court to fight back from a set down to defeat Vania King of the US 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 to set up a quarter-final clash with the winner of the match between Kristyna Pliskova of Czech Republic and Taiwan's Chang Kai-Chen.
