Top seed Samantha Stosur recovered from a slow start to beat Virginie Razzano in the second round of the HP Open.

Razzano broke three times on the way to claiming the opening set 6-1 but could not keep up that level of performance.

Stosur, aided by a total of 10 double faults from her French opponent, raced through the second set 6-2 and edged the decider 6-4.

The Australian will take on Jamie Hampton in the quarter-finals after the American saw off Thai wild-card Tamarine Tanasugarn 7-5 7-5.

Taiwan's Kai-Chen Chang booked a last-eight meeting with Britain's Laura Robson thanks to a 7-6 (7/4) 6-3 success against Australian Casey Dellacqua.

And Japanese qualifier Misaki Doi saw off Olga Puchkova of Russia 6-3 6-2. She will play South Africa's Chanelle Scheepers in the quarter-finals.
