TOKYO - China's Shuai Zhang was given a fright by local wildcard Eri 2Hozumi before escaping with a 7-6, 1-6, 6-3 win at the Japan Women's Open on Monday. The sixth seed survived a real scare in her Tokyo opener, finding her range in the knick of time to book her spot in the next round. However, fifth seed Madison Brengle was not so fortunate, the American crashing out 6-1, 6-4 to Slovakia's Jana Cepelova to become the biggest casualty of the opening day's play. Also checking out early was Ukraine's Kateryna Bondarenko, the eighth seed, who was bundled out by American Louisa Chirico in a 6-4, 7-5 defeat. Chirico was joined in the second round by countrywomen Varvara Lepchenko, a 6-0, 6-2 winner over Japan's Risa Ozaki, and Christina McHale, who edged Ukraine's Kateryna Kozlova 6-4, 3-6, 7-6.
