Stosur, seeded sixth, also failed to reach the second round after she was beaten 6-4 6-4 by Jelena Jankovic.

Meanwhile, fifth seed Petra Kvitova survived a scare of her own against Annika Beck to overturn an early 4-1 deficit to take the first set before she lost the second and fought back in the third to win 7-5 6-7(0/7) 6-3.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova won a two-hour-37-minute match against Ekaterina Makarova, 6-7 (5/7) 7-5 6-4 and Shvedova defeated Roberta Vinci 6-4 6-2.

Lucie Safarova, Shvedova and Julia Goerges all came through their first-round matches while qualifier Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the United States defeated Yanina Wickmayer 6-2 6-1.
