Pennetta out in first round in Bogata

First seed Flavia Pennetta had a bad day in Bogata today. Even after a rain interruption, she wasn't able to prevail in her match against Masa Zec Peskiric, who defeated her 6-3, 4-6, 7-6. Pennetta was down 2-4 in the third set when the rain came. She managed to get the break back, but then lost in the tiebreak.

Peskiric, who is ranked number 137 in the world, double-faulted elevent times in the match; Pennetta double-faulted ten times. The players' stats are almost identical, except that Pennetta was able to win more break points. In the end, though, that wasn't enough.
