The United States' Catherine Nixon has earned a last-64 meeting with top seed Kong Man Wai Vivian of Hong Kong, after coming through the elimination round at the International Fencing Federation (FIE) Women's Épée World Cup in Estonia's capital Tallinn.
Today's action at the Kalev Sports Hall saw Nixon progress from Pool 37, before beating Austria's Paula Schmidl 15-9, France's Auriane Mallo by the same scoreline and Switzerland's Aurore Favre 15-12.
It sets up a clash with world bronze medallist Kong, who leads the 32 players given a bye through to day two of competition.
Second-seeded Chinese Lin Sheng, the world silver medallist, has also learned the identity of her first opponent, with France's Camille Nabeth having secured the right to face her.
Ukraine's Yulia Svystil awaits reigning world champion Nathalie Moellhausen, the fourth seed behind South Korea's Kang Young Mi, in the last-64.
The event in Tallinn is the first FIE World Cup of the 2019-2020 season.
The individual competition is due to conclude tomorrow.
It will be followed by a team event on Sunday (November 3).
