Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak was the biggest winner on a rain-affected second day of the AEGON Classic in Birmingham as she progressed to the second round at the expense of Alicia Molik.
Wozniak, beaten by Elena Dementieva in the second round of the French Open last week, had too much for the Australian and ran away with a 7-5 6-1 victory in just over an hour.
Sixteenth seed Vania King of the United States also progressed with a surprisingly easy 6-4 6-0 win over Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens, while Ayumi Morita of Japan beat Maria Elena Camerin of Italy 6-2 3-6 6-2.
The weather meant neither of the home players scheduled to be in action, Anne Keothavong and Elena Baltacha, could get on court for their matches against Pauline Parmentier and Kaia Kanepi respectively.
When play was suspended for the day, American Jill Craybas had taken the first set against Sophie Ferguson of Australia while Kristina Barrois and Karolina Sprem were in the very early stages of their encounter.
