Top seed Francesca Schiavone launched a brilliant fightback in the first set to earn her a place in the second round of the Prague Open.

Israel’s Shahar Peer raced off the blocks to serve at 5-3 in the first set, but her Italian opponent won four consecutive games to change the momentum and then eased through the second set for a 7-5, 6-3  win.

Dominika Cibulkova withdrew from the tournament with a thigh injury, leaving Schiavone the highest seed in the draw.
