    PATTAYA, Thailand: Two-time champion Vera Zvonareva was through to the second round of the Pattaya Open Tuesday, claiming the first victory of her comeback following an 18-month absence from the game due to illness and injury. The Russian won 6-3, 6-2 over the tenacious Peangtan Plipuech of Thailand, who saved 14 of 19 break points she faced and engaged Zvonareva in some lengthy rallies to stretch the match to one hour 42-minutes. Both top-seeded German Sabine Lisicki and second seed Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia withdrew with injury, and sixth-seeded Spaniard Garbiñe Muguruza was beaten 6-7 (2), 7-5, 7-6 (6) by 43-year old Kimiko Date-Krumm of Japan.
