Fourth-seeded Shahar Pe'er of Israel cruised to a 6-2, 6-4 victory over South Korea's Kim So-jung on Monday to storm into the second round of the $170,000 (€142,000) Pattaya Women's Open at the Dusit Resort Hotel on Monday. Peer, an 18-year-old from Jerusalem who is the WTA world No. 45, utilized her solid baseline game to eliminate her little-known opponent, ranked No. 313, in just 74 minutes. The young Israeli will meet the winner of the match between crowd favorite Tamarine Tanasugarn of Thailand and Maria Sanchez Lorenzo of Spain, in the next round.
