BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) -- Top-seeded Elina Svitolina of Ukraine won her opening match at the Claro Open Colsanitas on Monday, beating Louisa Chirico of the United States 6-2, 6-1 in less than an hour.

Dinah Pfizenmaier of Germany beat 44-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm of Japan, 6-2, 7-5. The No. 152-ranked Date-Krumm hasn't won a main-draw WTA match since last September.
