PATTAYA: Third seeded Su-Wei Hsieh tumbled out of the Pattaya Open 6-2, 6-2 to unfancied New Zealander Marina Erakovic on Monday as the women’s tour resumed normal business after the Australian Open.

Looking to bounce back from a poor Open, the Taiwanese world number 25 failed to make a match of it as the unseeded Erakovic cruised to victory on the opening day of the competition proper in Pattaya.

Thai wildcard Varatchaya Wongteanchai delighted the home crowd with a 6-3,6-3 win over Germany’s Annika Beck, while Alexandra Panova also advanced to the second round after Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu retired a set down and trailing in the second.

In the last first round match of the day, France’s Mathilde Johansson dispatched Taiwan’s Kai-Chen Chang 6-4, 6-3.
