Lisa Raymond overcame a loss in the first set and beat Nadia Petrova 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 Wednesday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Pilot Pen tournament.

Raymond, a wild card, used a backhand slice and drop shots in the last two sets to frustrate the fifth-seeded Petrova, who flung her racket toward the sideline when she was broken by Raymond to end the match.
