Petrova out in first round in Zurich

First round matches were still being played today at the Zurich Open, and one of the casualties was the resurgent Nadia Petrova, who was run over by Flavia Pennetta, 6-1, 6-1. Petrova hit only one ace, had just a 49 first serve percentage, a 56 first serve win percentage, and a terrible 21 second serve win percentage. She also made unforced errors all over the place, and was generally considered to be very out of sorts during the match. I have seen an out-of-sorts Petrova before, and it isn't pretty.

Pennetta, for her part, broke Petrova five times and was never broken back.
