WASHINGTON, July 30 (UPI) -- Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova upended second-seeded Chanelle Scheepers Monday, advancing to the second round at the Citi Open in Washington.

Scheepers wasn't the only seeded player to fall Monday -- No. 5 Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic took a tumble at the hands of Hungarian Edina Gallovits-Hall 7-5, 4-6, 6-3.

Third-seeded American Sloane Stephens beat Sesil Karatantcheva of Kazakhstan 6-3, 2-6, 6-1.

Other Day 2 winners included seventh-seeded American Coco Vandeweghe, eighth-seeded Belarusian Olga Govortsova, Swede Johanna Larsson, Slovak Jana Cepelova, Greek Eleni Daniilidou, Hungarian Melinda Czink, American Irina Falconi and France's Aravane Rezai.
