Linz defending champion impresses in Luxembourg

Daniela Hantuchova, last year's General Ladies Linz champion, is not playing in Linz this year. Rather, she is playing in Luxembourg, where she is the third seed. Hantuchova has had a hard time of it since she returned from a long injury layoff. Today, however, the 3rd seed made short work of her second-round opponent, Sabine Lisicki, by defeating her 6-0, 6-2, in under 59 minutes.

Not so lucky was the 2nd seed, Anna Chakvetadze, who has also struggled this year. Chakvetadze was defeated 6-2, 6-4, by Iveta Benesova.
