New Zealander turned Australian Sacha Jones has won her opening singles match at the Pro Challenger women's tennis tournament in Wellington.

Jones switched allegiances in using her dual nationality to join the Australian tennis programme because of its greater resources.

She won her opening match against Riko Sawayangi, of Japan, 6-7, 6-2, 6-1.
