Britain's Anne Keothavong yesterday beat the world No 16, Dominika Cibulkova, 6-4, 6-1 at the Pattaya Open in Thailand.

There were defeats, though, for Laura Robson and Heather Watson, who also played a part in Great Britain advancing into a Fed Cup World Group promotion play-off last weekend. Robson was 5-2 down to Uzbekistan's Akgul Amanmuradova when she had to withdraw with a back strain. Watson was beaten 6-4, 6-2 by the American Vania King.
