No. 3 seed Roberta Vinci of Italy dropped Su-Wei Hsieh 6-2, 6-2 and No. 6 seed Peng Shuai of China eliminated Ayumi Morita of Japan 4-6, 6-0, 6-3.

French qualifier Pauline Parmentier, New Zealand's Marina Erakovic, qualifier Eugenie Bouchard of Canada and qualifier Casey Dellacqua of Australia also advanced Monday.
