Top seed out of Estoril in 1st round

Today in Estoril, Anastasija Sevastova upset top seed Agnes Szavay 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.

It wasn't the only upset. Julia Goerges defeated 3rd seed Aleksandra Wozniak 6-1, 6-1, and Kirsten Flipkens defeated 8th seed Sybille Bammer 6-1, 6-3.

Of interest was the three hour and twelve minute match between Petra Martic and Kimiko Date Krumm. Date Krumm won it, 6-7, 7-5, 7-6. Date's comeback doesn't get the publicity that the top name comebacks get, but it is quite an impressive accomplishment, nonetheless.

There was also an upset in doubles play. Wild cards Michelle Larcher De Brito and Arantxa Rus defeated 4th seeds Jill Craybas and Julia Goerges 6-4, 6-1.
