Shahar Pe'er will return from a two-week break this weekend to the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells, California. The 20-year-old Israeli, who received a first round bye, faces Akgul Amanmuradova (69 in the world) in the second round, two weeks after losing in the semifinals in Memphis. American wild card Angela Haynes overcame a 4-0 first-set deficit to beat Italy's Sara Errani 7-5, 6-2 in the first round. Haynes, ranked 221st, was playing just her third WTA Tour match of the year. She will face defending champion Daniela Hantuchova in the second round. Hantuchova won the tournament last year and is trying to become the first player to win the women's event three times. A semifinalist at the recent Australian Open, Hantuchova is seeded fifth, behind Ana Ivanovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Jelena Jankovic and Maria Sharapova. American Ashley Harkleroad also advanced, beating the Ukraine's Tatiana Perebiynis 6-2, 6-0. Russia's Ekaterina Makarova beat Meilen Tu 6-4, 6-2 while fellow American Jill Craybas edged Czech qualifier Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 7-6 (2), 6-4. All 32 seeded players have first-round byes.
