PATTAYA, Thailand (AP) — Top-seeded Ana Ivanovic was saved by the rain which caused her first-round match with Ayumi Morita to be suspended in the third set in the Pattaya Open on Tuesday.

The Japanese player was leading 6-3, 5-7, 2-1 when rain stopped play, forcing the match to resume on Wednesday.

Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open champion, could not get her serve going in the first set when she double-faulted five times, but the Serb fought hard to clinch the second set.

Seventh-seeded Elena Vesnina from Russia was also stalled while leading Greek veteran Eleni Daniilidou 6-3, 1-0.

All of the other seeds in action won in straight sets: No. 2 Maria Kirilenko of Russia, No. 4 Sorana Cirstea of Romania, No. 5 Sabine Lisicki of Germany, and No. 8 Heather Watson of Britain.
