(AP) Stefanie Voegele won the last eight games to beat Klara Zakopalova 5-7, 7-5, 6-0 Monday and advance to the second round of the Generali Ladies.


Voegele failed to serve out the second set at 5-3 as Zakopalova leveled at 5-5 but the 58th-ranked Swiss player didn't concede a game afterward. Zakopalova lost her serve eight times and saved 19 more break points.


The result ended Voegele's seven-match winless streak on the WTA tour, which started in the second round at Stanford in July.


Earlier, Elina Svitolina and Francesca Schiavone earned straight-set wins to also reach the second round.


The 44th-ranked Svitolina defeated Mona Barthel 6-2, 7-5 after the German double-faulted eight times and dropped five service games.


Schiavone hit four aces in beating Karolina Pliskova 7-5, 6-2.


The top-seeded player in Linz is ninth-ranked Angelique Kerber, who was given a late wildcard entry to replace Petra Kvitova of after the former Wimbledon champion pulled out with a back injury.
