BUDAPEST, Hungary, July 9 (UPI) -- Top-seeded and local favorite Agnes Szavay was routed in straight sets Wednesday at the $175,000 Gaz de France tennis tournament in Hungary.
Szavay, playing in her hometown of Budapest, was given a first-round bye as one of the top-seeded players but was stunned by Andreja Klepac 6-2, 6-3. Szavay managed to get just 53 percent of her first serves in and had her serve broken four times. Klepac faced just one break point in the match and she saved that.
Fifth-seeded Lucie Safarova was also ousted in straight sets, losing 6-2, 6-3 to Anna-Lena Groenefeld but second-seeded Alize Cornet won, defeating Magdalena Rybarikova 6-2, 6-2. The fourth second-round match played Wednesday had Karolina Sprem topping Tzipora Obziler 6-2, 6-2.
Cornet is to meet Groenefeld and Klepac plays Sprem in Friday's quarterfinals of the clay-court tournament.
