Bad day for seeds
MUMBAI, APRIL 1 . Favourites had an off-day and ended up on the casualty list, throwing the women's singles wide open in the $ 10,000 International Tennis Federation women's tennis Futures on Thursday.
Chuang went out at the hands of a confident Briton, picking up points with positive approach and incisive strokeplay to win the first set without breaking into a sweat. The top seed appeared to have settled down in the second with a break off Melanie's first service game, but failed to string enough points afterwards.
Melanie broke back at love in the sixth and capped her astonishing display with another break in the 10th to send out the biggest name in the women's singles draw.
