Also Thursday, Zi Yan beat Olga Poutchkova 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 and Yung-Jan Chan defeated Aleksandra Wozniak 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. Rain caused the suspension of a second-round match between fifth-seeded Dominika Cibulkova and defending Bangkok champion Vania King with Cibulkova ahead 6-6 (9-8).
The Cibulkova-King winner is to meet Yan in a quarterfinal and Radwanska drew Chan in the fourth match Friday.
