Tamira Paszek overcame a second-set blip to beat Alberta Brianti of Italy 6-4, 0-6, 6-4 in the first round of the Strasbourg International on Monday.

The eighth-seeded Austrian player constantly pressured Brianti's serve but could only convert four of her 15 breakpoint chances and dropped her own serve five times.

French pair Pauline Parmentier and Stephanie Foretz Gacon advanced in straight sets and next play each other. Taiwan's Hsieh Su-wei rallied to beat Romania's Irina-Camelia Begu 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-1.

Parmentier beat Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-4, 6-4 and Foretz Gacon downed Britain's Elena Baltacha 6-4, 6-0.
