Budapest Grand Prix
Singles - First Round: Anna Tatishvili def. (3) Tsvetana Pironkova 1-6 6-3 6-1
Not much of a surprise on a slow court, but this means no Top Forty spot for Tsvetana Pironkova.
Singles - First Round: (4) Klara Zakopalova def. Anne Keothavong 7-6(7-3) 3-6 6-2
This by itself doesn't affect Klara Zakopalova's points much, but she is now only about fifty points from the Top Forty.
Singles - First Round: (5) Marina Erakovic def. Pauline Parmentier 7-6(7-3) 3-6 7-6(7-2)
It's sixty points to the Top Forty for Marina Erakovic. But Pauline Parmentier, who was defending 110 points, will fall well below #60.
Singles - First Round: (6) Petra Martic def. (WC) Csilla Borsanyi 6-0 7-5
This by itself probably won't put Petra Martic in the Top Fifty, but one more win probably would.
Singles - First Round: Aleksandra Wozniak def. (7) Shahar Peer 6-4 6-3
No Top Fifty spot for Shahar Peer, it would seem.
Singles - First Round: Elena Vesnina def. Varvara Lepchenko 5-0 retired
Elena Vesnina could use a little luck right about now....
Singles - First Round: Lesia Tsurenko def. Greta Arn 3-6 6-3 6-1
This may be the day's biggest upset in practical terms: Not only is Greta Arn the higher-ranked of these two, she is also Hungarian and likes the surface.
Singles - First Round: (WC) Vanda Lukacs def. (WC) Henrietta Habler 6-2 6-1
Ah yes, the good old way of getting at least one player into the second round: Have two local wildcards face off in the first round.
Doubles - First Round: Marosi/Tatishvili def. (3) Amanmuradova/Rosolska 7-5 7-6(7-5)
Quite a day of upsets for Anna Tatishvili.
