Raymond and Coetzer advance in the Advanta Championships

Lisa Raymond of the United States and Amanda Coetzer of South Africa advanced to the second round of the women's Advanta Championships in Villanova, Pennsylvania on Monday.

Lisa Raymond of the United States and Amanda Coetzer of South Africa advanced to the second round of the women's Advanta Championships in Villanova, Pennsylvania on Monday.

Raymond defeated 19-year-old German qualifier Vanessa Henke 6-4, 6-4. Coetzer, the seventh seed in the tournament, downed American Erika deLone 6-2, 6-3.

Raymond won the first three games in dominating fashion, taking only eight minutes to do it.

"I got off to an unbelievable start and then got complacent," Raymond said. "The surface was pretty slow and I really didn't have a lot of time to practice. I got myself in trouble and I can't afford that in the next few days."

Raymond will meet defending champion Lindsay Davenport of the United States in the second round Wednesday.

Coetzer, ranked 12th in the world, will meet Jennifer Hopkins of the United States in the second round Wednesday. Hopkins downed fellow American Lilia Osterloh 6-1, 4-6, 6-1.

In other matches, Russia's Elena Bouvina defeated Katie Schlukebir of the United States 6-2, 6-2; Canada's Renata Kolbovic beat Marie-Gaiane Mikaelian of Switzerland 6-4, 7-5; and France's Julie Halard-Decurgis defeated Germany's Greta Arn, 6-1, 6-1.
