Rain halts Ana's comeback

Ana recovered from a 6-3, 5-2 deficit against world No.60 Ayumi Morita in the first round of the PTT Pattaya Open in Thailand, levelling the match at one set all before rain suspended play overnight.

Ana served five double faults during a miserable opening set and looked on her way home when trailing 6-3, 5.2. Morita, on the other hand, performed at a very high level.

However, she found some form just in time and reeled off five straight games to level the match.

All three games in the deciding set went with serve before rain halted play.

The match will resume on Wednesday sometime after 5.30pm local time (11.30am Central European Time; 5.30am Eastern Time) with Ana to serve; Morita leads 6-3, 5-7, 2-1.
