No. 2 Asagoe Ousted Monday at WTA Pattaya


Posted on February 7, 2006

Three of the four seeded players in action advanced Monday in (4) Shahar Peer (d. S.-J. Kim), (5) Nuria Llagostera Vives (d. Fujiwara), and (7) Aiko Nakamura (d. Kanepi from a set down), successfully advanced into the second round at the WTA stop in Pattaya, Thailand.


Unseeded players advancing Monday were Spaniards Lourdes Dominguez Lino (d. A.Bondarenko) and Maria Sanchez Lorenzo (d. Tanasugarn from a set down), Finland's Emma Laine (d. Z.Yan in three), and Italian Maria Elena Camerin who posted the upset of the day (d. (2) Asagoe).

"It was unbelievable," said Sanchez Lorenzo of her comeback after the homecountry favorite Tanasugarn did the throat-clutcher. "I was one set down, 1-3 and 0-40, so in my head I was out of the match. But after that game I don't know how I did it. I started to be a little bit more focused and started to play better. After winning the second set I felt much, much better. I was hitting the ball better and made less mistakes, and I saw she had less confidence than in the beginning."

On court Tuesday in Pattaya are Viratprasert vs. Bammer, Zvonareva vs. Suarez, Nagyova vs. Bychkova, Czink vs. Zheng, Rodionova vs. Castano, Sun vs. Kudryavtseva, Kostanic vs. K.Bondarenko, Wozniak vs. N.Li, and Santangelo vs. King.
