Highlight Story

Germany’s second seed Sabine Lisicki needed just 32 minutes to advance to the second round of the Pattaya Open on Monday when her opponent Akgul Amanmuradova from Uzbekistan retired injured. Lisicki was leading 5-0 when the trainer was called to administer on-court treatment to her Uzbek rival who was suffering from a stomach muscle injury.

But after dropping the next game Amanmuradova conceded the match.

Troubled Russian Anna Chakvetadze earned a welcome 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 victory over American Jill Craybas but was still unhappy with her form.
