3 seeds upset in 2nd day of Australian Open play

Both 18th seed Virginie Razzano and 23rd seed Dominika Cibulkova were upset in the second day of play at the Australian Open today. Razzano was defeated in straight sets by Ekaterina Makarova, and Cibulkova was taken out by Vania King in a bizarre three-hour wind-filled thriller. Also, Anabel Medina Garrigues, seeded 25th, was defeated by Karolina Sprem.

Serena Williams, Jelena Jankovic and Marion Bartoli had pretty straightforward wins. Top Australian player Samantha Stosur had to go three sets, but was victorious, as was her countrywoman, Casey Dellacqua.
