PATTAYA CITY, Thailand - Albeit due to unfortunate circumstances, the only seed in action on Day 1 of the PTT Pattaya Open was able to advance on Monday, as Sabine Lisicki got by an injured Akgul Amanmuradova.

Lisicki, ranked No.25 in the world and the No.2 seed at the International-level tournament, won the first set in 32 minutes, 6-0, when Amanmuradova was forced to stop due to a right abdominal muscle strain. Lisicki will next face either Tamarine Tanasugarn or Alla Kudryavtseva, who play Tuesday.

In the only other main draw matches of the day, Anna Chakvetadze rallied past Jill Craybas, 61 36 63, and Chanelle Scheepers survived a two-hour, 40-minute marathon against local wildcard Noppawan Lertcheekawarn, coming back from a set and 4-2 down to prevail in three very tough sets, 67(9) 64 64.

Sacha Jones, Nudnida Luangnam, Zhou Yi-Miao and Anna Gerasimou secured main draw berths with wins in the final round of qualifying.
