Bartoli and Li Na struggle to win in New Haven.

Picture

Fourth seed Marion Bartoli served a staggering 10 double faults but prevailed in an error-strewn match against Klara Zakopalova. The Frenchwoman could convert only six of her 21 break points but enjoyed more success on her serve as she won 6-2 2-6 6-1.

Li Na had a good workout as she continues her preparation for the US Open as she beat Maria Kirilenko in the second round of the New Haven Open. Both women produced five aces and three double faults but the Chinese player, seeded sixth at Flushing Meadows, had more success on her serve as she beat the Russian 6-4 7-6 (7/4) in a tussle lasting a little over an hour and three quarters.  Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, seeded eighth, eased through 6-2 6-4 against Roberta Vinci although the Russian produced five double faults. Anabel Medina Garrigues edged a hard-fought match against Elena Vesnina 6-2 7-6 (7/5).
