Tokyo play begins

Number 1 qualifying seed Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez did not get through qualifying, but she became the Toray Pan Pacific Open lucky loser when Li Na withdrew from the tournament because of a gastro-intestinal illness. Martinez Sanchez lost in the first round, however, to Maria Kirilenko. Kirilenko defeated her 6-3, 6-7, 6-1.

The only qualifier to win today was Greta Arn, who defeated qualifier Laura Robson. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, seeded 16th, defeated Dominika Cibulkova, and Andrea Petkovic defeated Gisela Dulko.

Number 2 qualifying seed Jarmila Groth went out in the final round to qualifying, as did Anastasia Rodionova.

The tournament's top four seeds are Caroline Wozniacki, Vera Zvonareva, Jelena Jankovic, and Sam Stosur.
