There was a seedless feeling to the Toray Pan Pacific Open. No. 1 Dinara Safina won the event last year, but fell to Taiwanese qualifier Chang Kai-chen in three sets, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-5, after serving for the match in the third set. No. 3 Venus Williams fared no better as she exited quickly and quietly, saying little following her 7-6 (6), 7-5 dismissal. French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova added to the upset pile when she lost 7-5, 4-6, 6-3.
