CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- Mary Pierce's comeback didn't go well Monday night when she lost to Tamarine Tanasugarn, 7-6 (2), 6-3, in the opening round of the JPMorgan Chase Open.

Pierce, plagued by injuries in recent years, has been trying to regain the form that carried her to two Grand Slam titles and a career-high No. 3 in the rankings. She seemed to have been making progress, too, having reached the fourth round at Wimbledon and the third round of last week's Acura Classic at Carlsbad.

Monday night, however, Pierce said she felt a pain in her back late in the prematch warmup. Trailing 3-0 in the second set, she took an injury timeout after feeling a sharp pain in her left side. She said afterward she wasn't sure if the injury was in her back or her abdomen.

``The thing that concerned me most was that it's in the same spot where I strained my abdomen pretty bad in Melbourne two years ago,'' Pierce explained. ``I could feel it in my back when I was serving. What concerned me was that it might be something that could maybe be more serious if I don't take care of it.

She planned to consult the WTA Tour trainer before deciding whether to play her scheduled doubles match Tuesday.
