Posted on October 26, 2005

Seeds safely into the second round Tuesday were (2) Nathalie Dechy (d. Yakimova), (3) Francesca Schiavone (d. (Q) Kanepi), and (4) Dinara Safina (d. Foretz).

Unseeded winners were Aussie Sam Stosur (d. Llagostera Vives, bagel in the second), American Jill Craybas (d. Sucha), and Czech Lucie Safarova (d. Salerni).

Wednesday in Hasselt will feature Santangelo vs. Srebotnik, Callens vs. Schruff, Minella vs. Vinci, Sprem vs. Savchuk, Clijsters vs. Bychkova, Camerin vs. Schiavone, and Loit vs. Tu.
