6th seed Yaroslava Shvedova lost her second round match today at the AEGON Classic in Birmingham. She was defeated 6-4, 6-4 by qualifier Sesil Karatantcheva. Also going out in the second round were 8th seed Andrea Petkovic and 16th seed Vania King.
In the first round, 12th seed Elena Baltacha retired with a g.i. illness. Baltacha suffered heat illness last week in Nottingham, where she won the tournament and had to play her quarterfinal and semifinal matches on the same day; she has been feeling a bit weak ever since.
It rained again today in Birmingham, and several matches had to be suspended.
