CHARLESTON, S.C., April 2 (UPI) -- Tenth-seeded Anabel Medina Garrigues moved on but No. 11 Christina McHale took a tumble Monday in opening-day action at the Family Circle Cup tennis event.

Medina Garrigues, of Spain, posted a 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 victory over Melanie Oudin of the United States, advancing to the second round.

Fourteenth-seeded Slovenian Polona Hercog, Argentine qualifier Paula Ormaechea and Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland also posted opening-round wins Monday.
