Jankovic and Kuznetsova both out in 1st round in Eastbourne
2nd seed Svetlana Kuznetsova won only three games today in her first round AEGON International match against Aleksandra Wozniak. Those three games were all played in the second set. Also going out was 3rd seed Jelena Jankovic, who was defeated by former top 10 player Anna Chakvetadze, 6-7, 6-3, 6-2. This score gives Chakvetadze a career lead of 7-3 over Jankovic, who double-faulted nine times during the match.
4th seed Vera Zvonareva, making her first appearance since her unfortunate third round in Charleston, lost to Amelie Mauresmo. Great Britain's top player, Anne Keothavong, also lost in the first round--to Sybille Bammer. And Agnieszka Radwanska handily defeated her younger sister, Urszula.
