Linz, Austria: Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland won the last eight games to beat Klara Zakopalova of Czech Republic 5-7, 7-5, 6-0 Monday and advance to the second round of the Generali Ladies.

  





Voegele failed to serve out the second set at 5-3 as Zakopalova leveled at 5-5 but the 58th-ranked Swiss player didn't concede a game afterward. Zakopalova lost her serve eight times and saved 19 more break points.
   
The result ended Voegele's seven-match winless streak on the WTA tour, which started in the second round at Stanford in July.
   
Earlier, Elina Svitolina of Ukraine and Francesca Schiavone of Italy earned straight-set wins to also reach the second round.
   
The 44th-ranked Svitolina defeated Mona Barthel 6-2, 7-5 after the German double-faulted eight times and dropped five service games.
   
Schiavone hit four aces in beating Karolina Pliskova of Czech Republic 7-5, 6-2.
   
The top-seeded player in Linz is ninth-ranked Angelique Kerber of Germany, who was given a late wildcard entry to replace Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic after the former Wimbledon champion pulled out with a back injury.
