Pattaya City, Thailand (Sports Network) - Heavy rains altered the schedule for
a second consecutive day at the $235,000 Pattaya Open, with all of Wednesday's
slated matches postponed due to wet conditions.
The weather was also a factor on Tuesday's Day 2, as three matches were either
suspended or postponed because of rain. That included top-seeded and former
world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic's first-round bout with Japan's Ayumi Morita, which
was stopped with Morita owning a 6-3, 5-7, 2-1 lead in the final set.
Seventh-seeded Russian Elena Vesnina was ahead of Greece's Eleni Daniilidou
6-2, 1-0 when that match was also halted on Tuesday.
Second-seeded Maria Kirilenko, No. 4 seed Sorana Cirstea, No. 5 Sabine Lisicki
and eighth-seeded Heather Watson were among those who won their opening-round
encounters on Tuesday.
