Bartoli out of Portugal Open in first round

Top seed Marion Bartoli was taken out of the Portugal Open today in the first round. Peng Shuai defeated Bartoli 6-0, 1-6, 6-4.

Also in the opening round, Francesca Schiavone--who beat Lourdes Dominguez Lino a few days ago in the Marrakech final--beat her again today.

Of note: Wild card Julia Goerges was defeated by lucky loser Monica Puig.

And--speaking of Frenchwomen--Aravane Rezai made it through qualifying but lost to Estrella Cabeza Candela in the first round.

Is seems that Bartoli has had some trouble making it to the upper rounds since parting with her father. Do you think this is just a transition due to being with her father all those years and now with a new coach? I know she was so happy about her wins in Fed Cup, which will hopefully get her back on the track again for the clay tournaments even though she had trouble in Portugal.
