PATTAYA, Thailand -- Rain washed out play Wednesday at the Pattaya Open with defending champion Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia yet to play her first round match.

Organizers have rescheduled the remaining three singles matches of the first round and all the eight second round matches for Thursday.

Top-seeded Ana Ivanovic of Serbia, whose first round match against Ayumi Morita of Japan was suspended due to rain on Tuesday, will resume leading 6-3, 5-7, 2-1. Seventh-seeded Elena Vesnina of Russia will resume against Greek veteran Eleni Daniilidou 6-3, 1-0.

Two-time champion Hantuchova will take on Olga Puchkova of Russia to complete the first round.
