Vania King defeated Marion Bartoli, 6-1, 7-5 in the second round of the Sunfeast Open in Kolkata, India today. King has not had a very good season, but she made a good showing today. For those of us who were expecting Bartoli to win the tournament, this is rather disheartening news. Bartoli's post-Wimbledon stress seems to have gotten the best of her, despite the fact that she says she is now back on track.
Two other seeds, Alla Kudryavtseva and Yaroslava Shvedova, were also upset.
Meanwhile, in Beijing, at the China Open, Anabel Medina Garrigues was upset, 6-4, 6-4, by Aiko Morigami.
