Marion Bartoli ousted by qualifier in first round of Rogers Cup.


Marion Bartoli was an early casualty at the Rogers Cup on Monday, the ninth seed losing 6-3 6-3 in her first-round match against Kazakh qualifier Galina Voskoboeva. The world number 135 needed 75 minutes to pull off one of the best wins of her career against the Wimbledon semi-finalist. Voskoboeva hit three aces and saved two out of three break points.

Immediately following the Bartoli match, Russia’s Kuznetsova took to the courts and went down to qualifier Simona Halep of Romania 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Samantha Stosur also suffered a fright before progressing against Japan’s Ayumi Morita in Toronto. The Australian 10th seed lost the first set before rallying to pull off a 4-6 6-2 6-3 win in just under two hours. Nadia Petrova eased past Jarmila Gajdosova 6-1 6-2 while other early winners included qualifier Greta Arn, who beat Klara Zakopalova, Lucie Safarova and Jie Zheng.
