Radwanska loses to Safarova in Moscow

Today at the Kremlin Cup, Lucie Safarova upset 2nd seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. This means that Radwanska still hasn't qualified to take the last spot at the WTA Championships in Istanbul. Competing for that spot is Marion Bartoli, who needed three things to get it: 1. to win Osaka (she did it), 2. for Radwanska to lose in her first round (the second round of the tournament) in Moscow (she did), and 3. to win Moscow. Chances are that Radwanska will still be the one to compete in Istanbul, but things have gone Bartoli's way so far.

4th seed Francesca Schiavone was beaten in the first round by Kaia Kanepi.

In Luxembourg, Anastasija Sevastova upset 4th seed Flavia Pennetta 6-3, 6-2, and top seed Victoria Azarenka won her first round match against Barbora Zahlavova Strycova.
