PARIS, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Eleni Daniilidou and Katarina Srebotnik were first-round winners Monday at the $600,000 Open Gaz de France tennis tournament in Paris.

Daniilidou rebounded for a 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 win over Victoria Azarenka, while Srebotnik eliminated local favorite Emilie Loit 6-2, 6-4 to open the indoor tournament.

The Gaz de France is played on GreenSet surfaces at Stade Pierre de Coubertin.

Srebotnik moved into a second-round match Wednesday against second-seeded Daniela Hantuchova, who -- like top-seeded Anna Chakvetadze and the two other top four seeds -- was given a first-round bye.

The 28-player field is playing for a first-place prize of $95,500, which will be awarded Sunday.
