For two days, driving rain virtually halted all activity in the desert, including tennis. The rain finally subsided, but Yugoslavia's Mima Jausovec wishes it didn't.

Little-known Wendy White turned the third-seeded Jausovec's first match of the tournament into her last match last night, posting a 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory in the opening round of a $50,000 tournament.

White lost the first set, but early in the second the 22-year-old's service began to take its toll on Jausovec, and she easily captured the final two sets.

In the other featured match, top-seeded Hana Mandlikova of Czechoslovakia breezed to a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Mary Lou Piatek. Mandlikova played nearly flawless tennis to beat Piatek, who defeated Leigh Thompson, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1, earlier in the day as officials scurried to make up matches postponed because of two days of rain.
