Top seed Ivanovic saved by rain delay in Pattaya
Morita was leading 6-3, 5-7, 2-1 when rain stopped play. The match resumes Wednesday.
Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open champion, could not get her serve going in the first set when she double-faulted five times, but the Serb fought hard to clinch the second set.
